Connecticut Cottages & Gardens Innovation in Design Awards

I was so very excited and honored to be the guest of my new friend Beth Dempsey of Images & Details to the Connecticut Cottages & Gardens Innovation in Design Awards event held in Stamford, CT. It was both exciting and inspiring to meet so many talented designers and professionals in the interior design/architecture industry and the members of the C&G magazine. My good friend Marcy from Irwin Feld Design was with me to share all the fun and dine with as we watched the winners take the stage.

Beth was so sweet introducing me to the many guests she knew and I was just thrilled for the opportunity to meet them all. Meeting the celebrated winner of the 2010 Design Innovator Award, Jaime Drake was so fun, he was as colorful in person as he is in his work - just delightful!

  1. Love the marble counter tops in the kitchen.

  2. What a fun event! I'm so glad that you listed the winners and their links - so much fun to see each of them. {And you look gorgeous!}

  3. How fun! And wouldn't you love, love, love to have a garden like the one in your photos? :) Looks like you had a terrific time!

  4. What a fun time! I thought all the nominees were great and the winners certainly deserved their Juliska trophies. Sorry not to have met you in person but hopefully sometime soon!

  5. Kitchen design lets you get your creative juice out of your system and put it to reality. Setting a design for your kitchen indeed entails a lot of planning and budget-securing. So before you step out to redecorate or remodel your kitchen, make sure to get the most out of the best opinions to make redecorating a wonderful success and experience.

  6. Fascinating... My cousin was searching this kind of info. He will be very happy when I give him your url. Thanks!
