This makes it even more exciting, and I can tell you that all my fellow designer participants, rendering team, creators and sponsors are beyond excited to bring this to life! December 3rd cannot come fast enough!

And in case you are still wondering which room I will be designing.......
DRUM ROLL PLEASE!
I will be doing the dining room. I am so excited!
I love designing dining rooms, and this one will be a wonderful new challenge for me as I seek to incorporate elements of wellness and sustainability.
The pandemic has brought us new challenges in the world of interior design, but as true innovators, we adapt to these changes, and see opportunities for creating solutions to help people live better and safer in their homes.
The showhouse is all about showcasing these wonderful innovations that I know you will love and will inspire you as well.
You don't want to miss the live, professionally produced event on December 3rd at 6:00PM ET, that will be moderated by LuAnn Nigara of A Well-Designed Business Podcast.
In today's post I wanted to highlight our amazing, forward-thinking sponsors who saw opportunity in this historical moment in the design world. It is thanks to each of them that we are able to present this event completely free to you.
Each room will include shoppable links to the amazing product lines offered by our sponsors. This will truly be a great experience where you will have great, inspiring design right at your finger tips
