I was recently asked to participate as a Blogger Ambassador in the fifth annual, “What’s New What’s Next” event hosted by The New York Design Center on September 19th. The focus of the event is on new products from the New York Design Center showrooms.
This year’s blogger participation is a bit different from years past. The target this year is to have a strong product presence on Pinterest.
I was asked to create a collage, inspired by one new product to be introduced at this year’s event and on the day of the event, my board will be on display amongst the other participants. But until then, boards will be pinned and repinned for promotion.
With some big name media sponsors like Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Architectural Digest and discussions with some of my favorite designers like Thom Filicia, Vicente Wolf and Bunny Williams, I was eager to jump at the opportunity to participate. And although I physically won’t be able to attend the event, knowing that a board that represents my stile will be in attendance (and hopefully viewed by many) feels like a bit of an honor.
The board I created is titled, California Luxe, inspired by the new Charlotte Batik Wool Rug.
It felt great putting a board together without a budget to worry about. I was like a kid in a fancy candy store.
I wanted my board to have that California beachy feel balanced with the glamour felt within LA, mixed in with color and pattern of the designstiles aesthetic.
Let the Pinterest promotion begin.
Ready, set, pin!
