I’m kinda pumped for this… Design Harvest Festival – Chicago. I’m really working on getting exposure to a design scene that compliments my likes and style. My family is humoring me… so we’re trekking to Chicago next week for Design Harvest.
Check it out, Oct 1st & 2nd – between Damen and Wood St.
According to their site, Design Harvest is notes as – “The West Town Chamber of Commerce along with Post 27 are proud to present Design Harvest, a new annual street festival for Chicago. This one of a kind fest will feature Chicago’s best local furniture and home accessory makers, vintage and antique collectors, and local retailers of the home design industry.”
Mixing furniture, accessories and antiques in a new way… sometimes the mid-west has just the right mix.

Last night I popped by the MG + BW event in the new Lincoln Park store / Chicago.
Featured artist, Tipper Gore, showcased some of her photographs arranged throughout the showroom.
Two levels of furniture arrangements, expressing their “Cozy Modern” feel with upholstered headboards, nailhead details and soft slightly shaggy rugs. Linen shades adoren the showroom with modern porcelain lamps for quirk. Nice furniture – will give your home a cozy and sophisticated look.

Today, I found Asparagus Interiors is listed on the Online Interior Design Degree website, “Top 50 Blogs About Eco-Friendly Interior Design.”
Noted as, “A green design company in the Chicago area fills readers in on what’s hot and new in the world of green design. You can be hip and modern and have a beautiful green home at the same time.”
Thanks for the post, there’s some great blogs out there!

I savor this fair… every little morsel of it! People ask me where do I get my ideas, inspiration… it’s this scene — the Renegade crafters.
These artisan’s think of things differently appealing to a modern, open minded – flexible crowd looking to mix it up. It’s amazing the mix of ideas that runs the gambit at this show. If you are free this weekend and looking for some artwork, jewelry, clothing or designed objects for the house etc… check it out.

Labor Day in San Francisco, that’s where “I left my heart,” this past weekend.
It’s a wonderful place to visit. Starting out at the Dreamforce 2011, conference – we headed out to Heath Ceramics in Sausalito. While tasting some organic gelato at the factory, Heath owners, Robin Petravic and Catherine Bailey – popped by the patio for their gelato before heading out of town. Celebrity citing!
Mike and I visited the Ferry Building, farmers market, Noe Valley, Cliff House and pacific coast beach. Dining in San Franciso is always a treat. Starting out with Blue Bottle coffee in the morning and dinner at Foreign Cinema – ambience was cozy, a modern dining experience to be had.
Always a fun visit to San Francisco!
