Blog Tour-NYC Here I Come!

WooHoo! I just want to share with you how honored and excited I am to be one of the chosen bloggers to participate in Blog Tour NYC 2013 this March.

#BlogTour is the brainchild of Veronika Miller, CEO and founder of Modenus, an Online Design Magazine. I’ve received their magazine via email for quite awhile and have avidly followed previous blog tours both here in the US and abroad on twitter. Needless to say I was thrilled to receive Veronika’s email inviting me to be a participant in the upcoming Blog Tour NYC!

Sometimes I sit here at my computer wondering who actually reads my posts, and why I am writing at all when my main love is design? What makes it all worth while? Well, you the reader for sure…and I never really knew this, but, my industry and peers as well. So imagine the thrill of being a participant in this one of a kind event with 13 other incredible bloggers from around the world!

So what is blog tour all about? We will be covering The Architecture Digest Home Design Show, along with showrooms, studio’s, design Resources, and behind the scene interviews with product designers and home design experts. Of course we will also be covering the parties, launches of new product and a general glitterati of NYC!

Do you want to keep abreast of what will be happening? Hear about the latest and greatest of what’s happening in the design world? Follow us on twitter #blogtourNYC, Pinterest, and of course my blog here as well as all the other participants blogs. You’ll be the first to see photo’s (also on my FB page) and hear about what’s new in the design world!

So, very excited to be going back to my hometown NYC, and also a bit back to my trend directors roots as we scout out the best of the best in the interior design world. There is nothing like the juice of creative stimulation from other creatives, new ideas, products and of course the city itself to enhance my own design work!

Won’t you join us on our tour and stay up to date on what’s happening?
