I was recently in Dallas to celebrate the launch of the LG Studio suite of appliances that I helped design. It’s great to be able to see a line, two years in the making, come to life – and get ready to hear more about this soon because I am OBSESSED… and I have a feeling you will be, too.
Even though I was there to talk kitchens, no work trip is ever complete without shopping local stores. This time around, I got to do it with some really talented bloggers in tow, including Athena from Eye Swoon, Cassandra from Coco+Kelley, Vera from Lady and the Blog, Chrissy from The Taylor House, and Dallas local Betsy Mitchell, of Dallas Socials.
I also chatted to “Save Me Steve” of Fox 4 in Dallas – check out their great video to get a peek at some of the pieces we saw that day… and my tips for adding character at home (without spending a fortune).
On the itinerary: White Elephant, LOST Antiques, and Nest. My rule of thumb when shopping antique stores is always: if you love it, buy it. Because chances are it’s a one-of-kind piece that you won’t find again. This trip I came home with a miniature French chaise for our daughter’s room, and a pair of Edwardian candlesticks made from hedgehog quills (see what I mean about one-of-a-kind pieces… hedgehog quills aren’t typically on the shelves of your local home store).
