Last month I had the opportunity to cover the Las Vegas Furnishings Market for Summer 2013 at the World Market Center. The WMC is comprised of three high rise buildings packed full of showrooms and exhibitors. It is absolutely huge! Highly recommend a visit if you are looking for great resources and major showrooms under one roof. Here’s a recap of some of fun finds (yet only a fraction of what’s there to see).

I had an amazing past week at the Brizo Blogger 19 reunion that took place in Memphis, TN. Along with over seventy (!) other bloggers, fellow Material Girl and Chicago blogger Julia and I spent the past few days catching up with new and old friends, touring St. Judes Children’s Hospital, the Target House, the Delta / Brizo Factory, and numerous cocktail parties and dinners! Here’s a recap of my visit to Memphis and some highlights from the past week!

JillSeidner9

Having arrived a day early, myself along with a few other bloggers got the chance to explore Memphis, TN. Above is a view of the Mississippi River from Riverside Lane and Downtown Memphis.

JillSeidner4

And the Riverboats.

JillSeidner6

We stayed at The Peabody hotel, a historic hotel known for the “Peabody Ducks” – the twice daily marching of ducks from the elevator to the fountain. The picture above was the view from my room looking out past buildings to the river at sunset.

JillSeidner18

Of course, we couldn’t be in Memphis and not have BBQ. Our first night, upon recommendation, we had dinner at the very casual and tasty Central BBQ in downtown Memphis.

JillSeidner3

After dinner, we walked the neon lit signs and blues clubs of Beale Street.

JillSeidner12

One of the highlights of our trip was visiting Graceland. Here’s Christian of Maison21, Raina of A Stylist’s Life, me, and Tyler of Tyler Wisler Home standing in front of Elvis’ pad, Graceland Mansion.

JillSeidner1

We loved the chic, vintage vibe of Elvis’ house. The living room fireplace features a sunburst mirror and mirrored tiles.

JillSeidner11

How great is this console? Also in his living room. Love!

JillSeidner8

The pretty yard and rear of house at Graceland (beyond this is a pool area).

JillSeidner13

Christian checking out the golds (a seperate musuem adjacent to the house).

JillSeidner10

Along with the Graceland tour, we checked out Elvis’ private jet. Here’s Christian, me, and Tyler in front of the “Lisa Marie.”

JillSeidner14

Then came the cars: Elvis had lots of them. (Raina, Christian, and I pictured above.)

The next day, came the important part of our trip, we toured the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital where we learned about the history of the center, walked the wings of the actual hospital, and engaged in a bit of volunteer work. Here in the atrium are international flags, as the center welcomes anyone, from anywhere.

JillSeidner16

We also toured the Target House, a center for patients and their families to stay in while receiving treatment. The facility features public living areas such as living/sitting rooms, a dining room, a play/craft room, a gym, and media room (above).

JillSeidner15

Corridors of the Target House are lined with a collection of artwork contributed by celebrities. The colorful drawing above is by John Travolta.

Screen Shot 2013-07-20 at 8.08.55 PM

After a long day of tours, we cultimated our day with a dinner and entertainment in one of the historic ballroom’s at The Peabody hotel.

Screen Shot 2013-07-20 at 8.36.50 PM

The next day, we toured the Delta Factory headquarters in Jackson, TN. (Picture above via Instagram)

JillSeidner7

On our last night in Memphis, we had a farewell dinner at the infamous BB Kings Blues Club (where there just happens to be a private club on the second floor called Itta Bena, formerly a speakeasy!).

JillSeidner17

The dinner menu for the evening.

Our farewell dinner party at Itta Bena restaurant overlooking Beale Street.

Many thanks to Brizo for hosting all of us bloggers for the Blogger 19 reunion in Memphis, TN!

It’s finally happening! Blog Tour, presented by Modenus, is coming to Los Angeles this Fall – for the first time ever!  Blog Tour LA will be taking place October 1st-6th. While the details for Blog Tour LA are still being ironed out, I was able to catch up with Veronika of Modenus this past week for a little preview of what’s in the works (including privy to one lucky blogger who is going to be invited to attend – whom I cannot wait to see in my city!). Have to keep mum until the announcements are made in the coming weeks (although could easily be swayed by monetary bribes!). As an alumni of Blog Tour London last Fall, greatly looking forwarding to tagging along while hosting all the fabulous bloggers in “my city”!

One of the big events in conjunction with Blog Tour LA is the West Edge Design Fair, to be held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, October 3rd-6th. Blog Tour attendees will be at the design fair with special events to be taking place – looking forward to being a part of this too!

A highlight of bringing bloggers from around the globe, is to provide them with a “my city” tour of some of the hidden spots and great charms. We had the opportunity to experience this too while on Blog Tour London. I am looking forward, along with other LA bloggers, to hosting a walking tour that is slated to be held around the Avenues of Art & Design, the La Cienega Design Quarter, and the neighboring streets around the Pacific Design Center.

 

Stay tuned for more! Be sure to follow @Modenus with hastag #BlogTourLA for all the latest deets!

For the longest time I have been wanting to share the amazing rug designs from Shivhon Rugs, and the motivation to do so has finally come – especially now that Shirley (the proprietor / designer behind Shivhon Rugs) and I have become good friends! I’ve always been a fan of her colorful, graphic rugs. Most recently, Shirley has shared some of her inspiration and direction for her forthcoming Fall collection and I look forward to seeing those come to fruition! In the interim, check out some graphic faves I’ve pulled from her site along with some she sent me.

Pearl-2

The “pearl” is so cute, would be great for a children’s room or playroom.

holly-3

Graphically sophisticated, I quite like the “holly” area rug.

image

A custom rug in the making, this is the Bella Rug.

IMG_3841

An image of the finished product, the Bella Rug.

SHIFT-7X106-45

Like an abstract canvas, love the colors of the “shift” rug.

vroom

A rug goes that goes “vroom” – I bet my nephew would love this one!

flutter

Beautiful butterflies – “flutter” is earthy and organic.

salem-small

“Salem” is so artistic, love the movement.

Aqua

New for Spring, the “aqua” rug will take you right through summer!

For more info, visit Shivhon or contact Shirley directly, right here.

As I am sort of (pseudo) helping my brother and sister-in-law with their home in Manhattan Beach, CA – I came across the idea to incorporate a bit of surf theme into their modern-era beach adjacent home. What better to decorate the walls then with a surfboard? (And why there are half a dozen surfboards stacked in the garage I do not know!) Instant art and decor! In searching for concepts I found some fun ideas, everything from a modern home to a beach cottage…

 

db68f787c62f03a8879467a5f732c6d8

Fun colors, a little cottage-y, a little glam…and a longboard hanging on the wall of this living room!

A surfboard shaped headboard for a children’s room. Precious.

In a tall stairwell, a vertical hanging surfboard fills out the space well.

A completely surf themed bedroom!

A beach cottage truly needs a surfboard somewhere in the decor!

Colorful art and a colorful surfboard pair well together.

4db0e00cfc96ed6cfd82f10b15a3572b

A sophisticated black and white striped bedroom contrasts well with a plain white surfboard.

72cd126e155c5676d0d493f6ef061c87

This ultra chic living room uses a vintage surfboard as part of it’s decor.

a52952fabc0f91678e93b3482c216a15

And if your office happens to be near the beach, keeping a surfboard on display is convenient for catching those good waves when they come rolling in!

The other day I came across this mid-century masterpiece of a home on California Home & Design. The house is located in Pasadena, CA and currently listed for sale at $1.695 million. It was designed by architect Arthur Swab for his own use in 1959.

The concrete block house features four bedrooms and four baths, an outdoor kitchen / pool area, with lush landscaping nestled into a hillside.
