Las Vegas Market is coming up and we have some really incredible speakers in this year’s Summer lineup!

We had time to tour ourselves around at this year’s Fall High Point Market, discovering new lines we love and revisiting some of our old favorites. But while we were not running around market, shopping our favorite lines, we were actually working (we promise!).

Our first order of business was a fabulous breakfast hosted by Lexington Home Brands, held in their amazing showroom, which is always a treat in and of it’s self. The turn out was phenomenal! We packed the house with 120 interior designers and had the humbling pleasure of sharing some personal anecdotes, discussing how the community Design Camp creates has been pivotal in helping designers grow their businesses.

We also had some fabulous giveaways! It was a highlight of our day to be able to award designer Genevive Roberts from Interiors by Genevive, an expenses-paid trip to the next Design Camp, Las Vegas, compliments of Lexington Home Brands. And check out these custom made notebooks Lexington made for our Campers using the same fabric as their Carrera line.

At Design Camp High Point, there were over 200 Interior Designers in attendance, packed tightly adjacent to the Jaipur Rugs showroom. We discussed the advantages and transparency of charging a flat fee, learned what it takes to earn the title Best of Houzz, and had an inspiring discussion with Mary McDonald of Bravo TV’s Million Dollar Decorators. Her new fabric and furniture lines take design to the next level. Her bold, modern-classical aesthetic will surely become an iconic look. We anticipate the day we hear our own clients ask for the Mary McDonald look in their homes.

Jaipur has been incredible to us and to our campers. All of our Design Campers walked away from camp, not only with hand-scribbled notes and tips from the trade, and an overflow of knowledge to process, but also a bunch of swag, Physical Mementos from Parlore, Noir, Caracole, Leftbank, and Tile Bar: reminders of the fabulous community we create and products we discover together at camp.

We’re still in awe about how much our Design Camp community has grown over the past couple years and can’t wait to spoil our Design Campers with more business and design advice from design icons at Design Camp Atlanta during the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market this January! Suzanne Kasler will be headlining Design Camp Atlanta, and you can bet we’ll be sitting there, pens in hand, ready to take notes along side all of our campers.

La Cienega Design Camp

As expected, Legends of La Cienega 2014 was a well organized, heavily attended, designer dream event in the heart of Los Angeles’ designer playground – La Cienega. We gathered to celebrate designer legend, Gina Berschneider’s 40 years in business.

With the branding expertise of Aaron Danzig of William Sonoma and the legal acumen of Henry Lien, we entertained our Campers in true Kelli and Lori fashion!

Hans Grohe Radiance Hand Shower

Who doesn’t love a great Giveaway?

Not only will you walk away from Design Camp feeling totally inspired and over-flowing with new ideas to catapult your business to the next level, but you could leave with a beautiful gift from one of our sponsors! We can’t wait to see what they have to offer, and here are just a handful of goodies up for grabs.


Each camp, Hans Grohe does an interactive design challenge where the winner receives a Radiance Hand Shower. We’re not lying when we tell you this is the best shower we’ve ever had. It’s like heaven is raining down on our heads!

This elegant book, Charlotte Moss Decorates, or a stunning Gilt Twist Accent Table could be in your hot little hands, courtesy of Currey & Company.


Jaipur not only offers beautiful products, but their philosophy on social responsibility rings close to my heart. They are giving back to the hard working and talented communities who are helping to create these rugs, and empowering them to find better financial and social stability. And you may have a piece of these creations in your own home if you’re a lucky winner!



Arteriors has just joined in and will be offering something just as lovely as ever. We love Arteriors!

Soicher Marin has promised to bring something brand new and exciting to camp and we’re dying to see what it is!
