I am counting the days until Oct. 24th, when I will be attending the kickoff to Design Camp in the very cool Austin, TX.
What is Design Camp you may ask?
Design Camp is a two-day seminar hosted by Celebrity Interior Designers Lori Dennis and Kelli Ellis, with special guests segments led by local and national industry experts in niche fields. The course is tailored for design professionals and design aficionados. Each day runs from 9AM-6PM and is broken down into 8 segments per day.
Drinks, Snacks, Lunch, and Cocktail parties included. By the end of Camp, attendees will have the confidence and ability to run successful modern-day design careers, execute magazine ready interior projects, take careers to an entirely new level, network and collaborate with local suppliers and colleagues.
Design Camp is your destination for practical, applicable, real-life design insight you don’t get from traditional institutions. In two fun-filled days you will discover more at Design Camp, while saving time and money.
I AM SO EXCITED!

Austin also has some great shops should you be in need of a little retail therapy. I am particularly looking forward to visiting Howl. Howl is an amazing antique store with a mix of items from all over the world, curiosities, and glam.
Here are some photos from a cool, eclectic Austin bungalow:
the gray walls make this sunroom soo serene!
Love the big armchairs on each end of the table…
