Design in Conversation!

Posted by


I’m still bustling around NYC, but I wanted to share with you a really fun conversation I had with Zak Graff as part of the brand new podcast series, Design in Conversation.

It’s a sprawling exchange and we discuss everything from the business of design to Oprah to flank steak! The interview can be downloaded from iTunes and supplementary materials (including recipes!) are all found over at the Design in Conversation site. AND there’s a Pinterest board with images and links relevant to the recording!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

p.s. In the interview, I mention my upcoming Getting Published and Social Media Strategy events, and you can still get the Bring a Friend for $500 special offer, but only until November 18th!! So don’t drag your feet…come learn exactly what you need to know to really launch yourself to widespread visibility!

Your Toes Will Be Tapping! My Design Work Makes an Exciting Cameo! And a #HPMKT Playlist for YOU!

Remember the room that I designed for Traditional Home in the Holiday Showhouse in NYC?

It appears as a set in a Justin Timberlake video!!!!!!! So now I can add “Hotshot Music Video Set Designer” to my resume. You can watch the video below. My room (sans furnishings but still decked-out in this gorgeous Phillip Jeffries wallcovering) is the room in the shot, starting at minute 4:10. This is so cool and exciting.

Cheers to Phillip Jeffries and their Union Square grasscloth for this amazing cameo! Here’s a close-up of Union Square:

Lovely, am I right?!

On another note (pun intended!), a handful of #HPMKT style spotters and trend watchers have created playlists in anticipation of High Point this month! You can find all of them HERE.

My own playlist is themed “Gold Standard,” and you can play it here (see the playlist right under my signature?), courtesy of Spotify and #HPMKT! I hope it gets your toes a-tappin’. Enjoy!

Easy Updates from Decorating Shortcuts Magazine

Happy Saturday! I know many of you are taking the weekend to make some updates around the house. If you’re in need of a bit of inspiration, check out the latest issue of Decorating Shortcuts.

This publication has a ton of easy ideas that you could re-create or put your own spin on with a bit of personalization or paint! That’s what I did in this Energy Showhouse that’s featured in the issue.

Pick up a copy and let me know how you’re inspired by these ideas.

xo, Tobi
