I am riding on a show house high. Yesterday (and every Wednesday through Nov. 18th) was (is) Designer Day at the JLB Show House, so it was great to get such positive feedback from attendees, some of which were members of the design community (architects, photographers, other area designers). It’s been such a great experience to work beside such a talented group, and feels so good to be around like-minded people, that I almost had to pinch myself today — I feel so privileged. With my thoughts on the show house activities, it’s been difficult to sit at the computer and focus on finishing a post, so I’ve decided today I would share some links.
“Elsewhere in 3’s” — for those new to this blog — is a play on the Everything in 3’s acronym (Ei3’s), where I link to other posts and send you “elsewhere” for inspiration. So since I can’t focus on much right now other than show house talk, I’m sharing three things.
1) More Sneak Peeks of the 2012 JLB Show House. I’ve watched all of these rooms transform over an 8-week period (for some, less than that), and have had the great pleasure of meeting artists and designers whose work I’ve admired. Elizabeth Benedict and Marilyn MacLeod were my neighbors (their spaces are near or adjacent to mine). I met them for the first time only last month and after borrowing nails, ladders or Windex from each other, feel like I can count on them for support in the future. Because my space was located at the back door, I saw people come and go, and was thrilled to meet Ana Donahue, Frank Hodge and Janet Marena. Michael J. Lee has captured all of their spaces beautifully…check them out here.
2. Benjamin Moore’s 2013 Color of the Year is a yellow! Lemon Sorbet 2019-60 to be exact. A bit of a surprise to me, as I’m convinced Pantone’s 2013 Color of the Year will be Emerald Green, even though I voted for Monaco Blue. Read more about Benjamin Moore’s choice, here.
3. Arteriors Home at Target? No, this is not another Target collaboration, but a great knock-off that Megan Arquette discovered!
