Christmas in June!

Wednesday, July 29, 2009 | Category: Bed and Bath, Holiday, Material Girls Projects

About a month ago, I posted about the Home for the Holidays event that I had participated in at the Dallas Trade Mart.  My photographer just sent me the photos she took of the “Holiday Glam” guest bedroom that I designed, and I must say, she did an awesome job with the photography! (Contact me if you need a really talented Dallas photographer- I love to brag on Jessica, she is the best!)


All in all, Home for the Holidays was so much fun- but definitely a lot of hard work.  The paint and carpet were chosen for us, but other than that, you were given free reign to design whatever you wanted!

I had to go around begging vendors in the trade center to let me borrow their pieces (since most showrooms needed their furniture to be on display IN their showroom during market).  But all’s well that ends well, and I ended up getting most of the furniture I wanted with the exception of a couple of black and white cowhide x benches that were supposed to go at the end of the bed.

I am really appreciative of the showrooms who participated and wanted to pass along their info in case any of you are interested in these specific pieces (or just visiting their showroom in the Dallas World Trade Center/Trade Mart!)

The chair below, called the Seatbelt Chair, was a hit with everyone! However, people were too afraid to sit in it for fear that it would break…but it is surprisingly very sturdy and it is made incredibly well!

Fantastic Craft did such a good job trimming the room with Christmas decorations.


They added sticks to the Montreaux Twin Horn Vase (from Two’s Company).  I love how they made everything feel so organic and natural- it went with my subdued scheme really well.


My client Debby even surprised me at the Toast and Trim party- very sweet of her to come!


Here’s to a wonderful celebration of Christmas in June!

Hi Barbara,

Thank you so much. I really appreciate that. I had a blast participating. So glad you got to visit HFH exhibit in person! All the designers did a great job on their individual rooms.

Thanks everyone for your kind words. It was my first “showhome” and I was a bit nervous pulling it all together!
