Last night some bloggers and tweeters united at Crate and Barrel Square One for a little Design Chat, and mingling. It was a fun night, and always good to catch up with the girls of the Design trade. I invited Lisa Ferguson, Meredith Heron, and Jo Alcorn, (who writes Eco Chic for Verdigris Vie) to style a setting in the store and they came through with fabulous and inspiring design. Special thanks and shout outs to the amazing team at Crate and Barrel Square One, Cathy and Andrew you are both very kind and generous !

Lisa put together a lovely setting that was mix of colour texture, and the unexpected! The Galvanized chairs, and Dove Vases had definite impact. Especially the mix of modern white chairs, and vintage metal chairs. The dishes pulled on a lovely shade of lavender that coincidentally became a theme that evening. They were rustic and earthy and played up the mixed undefinable style we are starting to see a little more these days.

Jo pulled together a fresh and crisp spring look for her setting. She highlighted energizing green with soothing lavender textiles. The Marin dishes were classic white with a beautiful organic edge to them, set on top of the colours of the Terrence place mats. She married super stylish with family practical. It was perfect!
Living Room by Meredith Heron
Meredith's Inspiration started earlier that day with her post about what she was feeling, and as she walked through the store and let her talented eye guide her, she ended up with something so luxurious. She paired lavender and cobalt blue for this sophisticated living room that featured the ravel pillow a cobalt blue alpaca throw, blue leather tux club chair, and a the Carly chair with a painted blue cobalt frame!
A great group of Girls! That is me on the end.
Thank You again for your work.
