My mantra is always, it’s all in the details. And that’s what I was focused on at last month’s High Point Design Bloggers Spring 2017 Tour. I was thrilled and so very proud to be part of such a fabulous team of fellow design bloggers! Each one of us share the love of home and design, yet each one of us are so very different….and so are our blogs.
In a jam-packed 2-day tour of key High Point Showrooms, we saw and learned so much about each company. To share multiple photos with you from each showroom would be tough (I did take 1600 shots!), so I thought it would be a good idea to pick one beautiful detail from each showroom that perfectly says who they are, and what image has stayed with me when I think of them. In the coming days, I’ll be featuring 2 of the showrooms that I feel will interest and inspire you the most.
The showrooms proceed in the order that we toured them. Here’s a little scoop on each sponsor that participated in the tour:
