BlogTourNYC: The People

Wow…

Before I left for #BlogTourNYC, a friend suggested that this could be a life-changing event. Now I understand.

BlogTourNYC group with Bunny Williams

Veronika Miller of Modenus has a skill for not only selecting people for the appropriate city for each BlogTour but also for combining a group of unique personalities. Our group seemed to bond from the instant that we met each other. So much so that even when we weren’t scheduled to be together, we were meeting up to spend more time with each other.

We walked and talked…

Vicki Gladle Bolick

Alison Habermehl and Jeanne Chung

Deborah Main

Maureen Coates

…oohed and aahed over designs, ate and drank, and laughed!

And we were made to feel welcome wherever we went.

Veronika and her girls made it look effortless but they worked hard to pull together this fabulous trip.

Friendships and memories were created.

Thank you so much V!

Paola Thomas says she is a food and travel photographer, but she is much more than that. Her blog’s tagline, “reflections on food, photography, design + life” starts to come closer. Her blog mirrormirror reflects her exuberant view of life. Full of gorgeous photography, luscious food, and design inspiration, it reflects her artistic eye. Take a look:

I like how she describes herself on her blog: Passionate photographer, unrepentant foodie, compulsive baker. harassed mummy, little-known blogger, snarky Brit. I live in Seattle, love colours, and have opinions. Follow Paola at mirrormirror.

The Ace of Space Blog

Designer/ Bolick Interiors- Photo/ Christina Wedge

Vicki Gladle Bolick is the owner and principal designer of Bolick Interiors,LLC. Her blog, The Ace of Space, has been gaining lots of recognition since it was launched. Vicki’s passion for design shows as she is able to skillfully weave a client’s existing furnishings with updated pieces to create fresh, new spaces. It follows her belief that “we should always make more room for beauty in our lives.”

Here is what she said about the room above:

We added/ or repurposed all the furnishings in the Keeping Room, the rug was shipped over from Singapore, and we used the client’s own artwork as a spring board for the warm color palette. Although, they are more traditionalists the art collection leans more toward contemporary. We recovered their sofa in a fabric that was reminiscent of grasscloth (another nod to Asia), the rest are from Hickory Chair, and Bernhardt.

See more of Vicki’s design inspiration at The Ace of Space Blog.
