John and I are up in Maine and having a blast bopping about the myriad antiques shops on Route 1 and stopping for fried clams along the way. J’adore Maine. But more about our divine Down East finds in a post later this week.
On another note, I was recently thrilled to find out that I had been named a Style Spotter for the fall High Point Market: Basically, I will wander around the show and, along with my fellow Style Spotters, get to select my favorite items.
Let’s go, and how, furniture manufacturers: I am ready for some BIG, BOLD TECHNICOLOR MOMENTS AND NO BEIGE, so you better give me furnishings in all sorts of acid hues and mirrors festooned with bananas and coconuts, or this Style Spotter will not be happy. And make sure to have comfortable seating in your showroom or perhaps a bed so that I can take a breather and then serve me a big glass of wine to keep me running like the Energizer Bunny. And I like that southern pimento cheese and other nibblies scattered about to keep me fortified.
One of my fellow Style Spotters, the lovely Julia Buckingham Edelmann of the Material Girls blog, asked me a few questions about how I plan to approach my Style Spotting adventures in High Point, so read my responses by clicking on the image at the top of this installment.
Meanwhile, I am off to enjoy a lobster roll and a glass of Sancerre. Giddyup!
