Sarah was so welcoming and every bit as sweet and genuine as I imagined. I sipped some delicious Pluck Tea and mingled with a pretty awesome group of bloggers who were all equally as giddy as I was to be there! Sarah was sweet, her design team was lovely, and her office was gorgeous. So pretty and serene in signature Sarah style, I could definitely get used to working here everyday...
She chatted about her new show 'Real Potential' and even acknowledged the fact that some of us design fans may not appreciate it being a bit heavier on the real estate side than the design aspects. Personally, I'm a fan of 'house hunters' type shows so it sort of combined the best of both worlds for me. Though I wouldn't say no to more design either.
Sarah also revealed her brand new line of fabrics for Kravet and shared some insights into the design process and how they make it all happen. I loved all the pretty, subdued patterns and how they all coordinate together in classic yet modern way. Seriously, can you believe this is an office??
I'll be honest, I hardly slept the night before, I was so nervous/excited! Everyone I met was seriously so sweet and friendly and it really eased my nerves heading into Saturday's conference. Yep, this was pretty much my dream day and the perfect way to kick off an amazing, inspiring weekend.
Thank you to Jennifer Flores and Deb McCain for organizing the event and to Sarah and her team for opening up their beautiful office to us. And of course, a huge thank you to Sarah for being so real, down-to-earth and a true inspiration.
