Last week I had one of the most exciting lunches and I just have to share it with you. Yes the food and the gorgeous new space of Sam's was amazing but really the excitement came from the person sitting across from me! I am sure you know Stacy Kunstel and if you don't know her, I bet you know her work. She is the Editor/Stylist of New England Home Magazine and a stylist for magazines such as Better Homes and Garden and Traditional Home to name a few. Our lunch was one of those where I was just hoping we would have something in common...well let me say we have SO much in common! In an industry where people can get a bit bigger than themselves, it was refreshing to meet Stacy who is so generous, creative, encouraging and energetic. Over the weekend I was flipping through my inspiration folder and what do you know, I have many of Stacy's rooms saved. Below are a few recent rooms she has styled, notice the small details, how she layers pieces and always has fresh flowers!
This was a great example of reaching out to those in the blog/twitter world and actually meeting them in person. You never know what new friends you will meet! So go on out there, who will you meet this week?
