City in Bloom - Retail Window Competition


EXCITING NEWS!

You know how much we love collaborating with our local creative community. DC is full of inspiring people and events, and this one has us oh-so-excited! :)

Mariella has been selected as one of the judges for the First City in Bloom Retail Window Competition! That's right! DC dresses in pink and smells like cherry blossoms during the months of March and April each year. This time we are partnering with the National Cherry Blossom Festival  to help spread the beauty and celebrate the creativity of our stores during the first ever retail window competition.

Inspired by the holiday window displays in New York, the competition will have a distinctively DC feel using the theme “DC in Springtime”. Follow Mariella on her Instagram stories tomorrow to see the work of each competitor and vote for your favorites!

And don't miss the peak bloom! You can follow the bloom watch in here.

I certainly do.

Insta stories time - caught in camera! ;)

These have been a couple of fun months for me. I've met amazing people, learned so much about the interior design industry, and enjoyed A BUNCH of cocktails! ;)

Last month, I was invited to the Better Homes & Gardens StyleMaker event in NYC. It was a lovely and inspiring gathering with design bloggers, designers and entrepreneurs. Grace Bonney and Padma Lakshmi shared her wisdom and incredible stories with us; and Crate & Barrel pampered us with a beautiful reception. it was such a great weekend! A reminder of stopping from time to time to enjoy and celebrate the journey.

Have a beautiful day you all! Thanks so much for reading my stories. xx.
