The RUE Launch Party

The first invitation I received for my NYC trip was to the RUE launch party at the New York Design Center. This was one event I was determined not to miss. I was so excited for all that Crystal had achieved in just a few short months in launching RUE, that I needed to be there and show my support. She had a vision, gathered the best team of people she could find and went forth with such determination that it was enviable. Her enthusiasm in bringing the best most approachable online design magazine to all of us decor lovers is admirable, not to mention she lived on very few hours of sleep to do so! Thanks to the New York Design Center ladies and the Century Furniture Showroom, they know how to throw one great party!

The beautiful founder (and great friend) Crystal of RUE!

The entire night was too fantastic for words and it felt like one big reunion as I met all the people I talk to daily through the blog and twitter! The design community we have all created through social media is one of the most inspiring and supportive group of people I have ever known!

Thank you so much for this kind and thoughtful post Julie! The night would not have been the same without you there. You've been my supporter since before the beginning and for that I am SO grateful. Proud and fortunate to be able to call you a friend!
