Most of you know I recently spent a week in Atlanta at Americasmart for my daughter’s business, Honestly Margo. Well, that place is FULL of amazement and delight with beauty from designers and manufacturers from all over the world. Truly, I can’t even tell you how beyond blessed I am to have this experience to be able to go and travel and experience the back side of retail and see and have access to all of this beauty that has influence in the way we style ourselves, our homes, our businesses, our lives.
While I was there to work HER business, I did get a chance to walk around the place a little bit. Not nearly as much as I would have wanted. But I did get to see a few of Pantone’s design exhibition displays. They were BREATHTAKING. Like beyond gorgeous. Most of these installations that they had showcasing the Pantone Color of the Year were in buildings other than ours, but I managed to see a couple of them. You guys KNOW just by the bags I have, the accessories I wear, and just my overall taste in design and fashion, I’ve ALWAYS loved these colors, rose quartz serenity. So when I saw these displays, my heart stopped.
Here are just a couple of pics I was able to get from some of the installations. Note this…. Photographs are traditionally STRICTLY prohibited at market, and I’ve been scolded more than once in the past to stop taking pictures. So I was very quick and brief and didn’t get nearly the amount I wanted to take. But I had to share some of this with you.
So I decided to pull some of this inspiration I saw from those beautiful displays from those fabulous designers to picking some accessories you can incorporate into your space to create a similar feel. These are all super inexpensive, so sprucing up your home won’t cost you thousands of dollars like the big designers might cost you. But you get this fabulous calm serene elegant look for a fraction of the cost.
