Well, today promises to be extra special since I’ll be seeing
Design Chicago is a 2-day luxury design event
where oodles (a technical term)
of Trade professionals gather
for educational opportunities,
showroom events, networking,
and I hope…cake.
I’m bringing along my partner in crime, and together
the OVER THE HILL OLSEN TWINS—
who too seldom are recognized as
the respected journalists we are–
shall grace the Mart’s halls,
the good, the true, and the beautiful
as your personal paparazzi
because you make blogging fun.

by Lonney White from Holly Hunt

from CAI .
Janet Shiff and Lynn Boutross
of Blutter Shiff Designs
were going for contemporary with edge

and all the quiet tones feel utterly calm

attending fashion week and fan celebrity fan cruises, and…
Blutter Shiff Designs
I would gladly bake you petit-fours in the kitchens
above and below designed gorgeously by Blutter Shiff.
Notice they took the stone straight up the backsplash
which for me…well, for me it’s eye cake.
Care to hear how Ms. Del Piero conceived the design
of the DreamHome’s bedroom?
See you in a couple of hours, Chicago.
Peace to you right where you are.
i’m going to bed.
