Seattle, Here I Come! + A GIVEAWAY!

Posted by


Giving back to our communities and to the causes that matter to us is SO important. That’s one of the reasons why I am thrilled to be working with DIFFA/Seattle for the upcoming GLAM events.  And…to make it even better I get to work with Masins Furniture and fantastic vendors like Hickory Chair!!

I’m currently in the process of redesigning the lobby of the Masins Bellevue store for this fantastic weekend event. All of the details are coming together and the reveal is going to be AMAZING! I’m so excited I can hardly wait to share this project with you — in fact, watch the blog for a few sneak peek pictures next week.

So what exactly does the event entail? Well, trust me, if you love design, wine or food (I think that pretty much covers everyone!) you will not want to miss it. Here’s a glimpse at the weekend lineup…

You can purchase tickets to Friday night’s party and find the details to RSVP for Saturday’s FREE seminar at I hope you can join us for one or both of these events because I’m looking forward to meeting lots of new faces in Seattle!

In fact, to kick things off I’m giving away 2 pair of VIP tickets to Friday night’s TABLEHOP Party. Come see the new lobby I have designed at Masins Bellevue, view all the tablescapes and bid on some pretty amazing dinners.

To enter, simply leave a comment here on the blog telling me how you give back to your industry or your community.

The winner will be announced on Monday, August 27.

I hope to hear from each and every one of you!
See you in Seattle!
xo, Tobi

  2. Oh my goodness! That sounds amazing! I would love to win two VIP tickets! I have thought about getting involved with Diffa! How exciting. Can’t wait to see every detail!

  3. I think both events sound delightful and I’d love to be in the running for a pair of tickets. In the past I have volunteered and spoken on Interior Design to local church and youth groups. I also was an active participant in the Habitat for Humanity program while I lived in Alaska. Within the last year I relocated from Anchorage to Seattle, and am trying to rebuild my social and professional connections. I am new to this A&D community and would love to get more involved and meet other creative professionals.

    I recently applied to be a volunteer grader for the upcoming NCIDQ examination. I hope I am chosen. I am proud of that accomplishment in my own realm and would love to help make that possible for other Designers.

    Thank you.

    I used to do it for a living – I was in Americorps for two years, planting trees and restoring wetlands. Now that I’ve finished my service, I support STEM field research, volunteer when I can, and support interest for science and other fields in the younger generations.

  5. Tobi,

    This is such a neat event. I just started my design business about 2 years ago. I first heard your name from Traditional Home Magazine during my first year and saw you were from the south! I’m a Louisiana girl. Giving back to the community means so much because it’s the first place that invested so much into me. I volunteer every year with a group called The Louisiana Association for the Blind or short The Lab.

    We strive to improve the quality of life for the visually impaired through training services and employment opportunities by offering programs which provide independent living skills, Braille, computer services, confidence building efforts through social events, and fine arts. Our work is crucial as there is a 70% unemployment rate nationally among people who are blind, 61.2% in Louisiana alone.

    I even had the honor of designing their lobby at their new facility this past year. They are truly amazing people with great heart; only thing is they can’t see. It feels so good to be able to give back them and boost their confidence in helping them obtain on the job skills.

    This year I also donated my services to help decorating the House for Hope. Another great organization that raffles off $100 tickets to win a brand new fully furnished home. The home is featured on the Parade of Homes route and all proceeds go to building and developing homes for under privileged families. Winning these tickets would be amazing because I would get to meet you the woman mogul I look up too and see awesome designs. Totally a win-win!!! God Bless.

  6. How neat would it be to catch up Tobi on both sides on the coasts?
