Happy Monday, love!

I want to share a bit more about a fun event I participated in last week. My friend Elizabeth brought 4 artists and 4 designers to combine their talents and create fabulous designs using westelm pieces! I was so excited when she invited me to be part of it - you know westelm is one of my favorite places to go when it comes to put a room together ;)

The DC Art x Design night was so much fun! Lots of creativity and my favorite designers in one place. Even better, I got to meet and work with a fantastic artist in the area, Kristin G. Endsley. When I saw her pieces, I couldn't even decide which one was my favorite. They were all SO GOOD! In the end, I went for this beautiful piece you can see above called Skateboard and created a dramatic living area based on its beautiful shapes and colors.

Black walls, tons of gray and gold, and some chic pops of color - I adore that teal! I'm still so in love with this design, and I wanted to share with you some of the pieces I used to make it happen. They are all current ones and you can find them in the links above ;)

What do you think?! Would you use them to transform your space too? Let me know which one is your favorite! xx.

TOGETHER WE GO FURTHER

We met last year. And clicked immediately. When women with strong energy get together, magic happens. 

Shannon and Teri put together the first #likeabossparty in 2014 so creatives and entrepreneurs had a space to get together, network and start planning awesome things for the upcoming year. Kerra and I joined them this year, and we all hosted this amazing event!

Being an entrepreneur has taught me so many invaluable lessons, but the most important one is this one: "If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far go together". I'm a feminist, and I believe in women's energy in all spheres. Luckily, and after searching a lot, I found a fabulous network of women in DC who are hustling to make their ideas and dreams happen. All of them have their talents, and I'm convinced that combining them only brings good things.

The #likeabossparty was a celebration of talented women! We had so much fun, and the most amazing collaborators! Please see all tags in the pictures for details. All of them are amazing - and of course, they are mostly women ;) 

I couldn't be happier with the results! And I'm extremely grateful for my lady bosses around. So, here's to every one of them and their projects (picture the glass of bubbly I'm holding now) and to you! May this New Year bring us much more energy and magic. Let's hustle.

Thanks for passing by! Happy Holidays! xx.
