For a long while I have thought about having an event to bring together a couple of my favorite things: design & the super fun people in my life. On September 11th, this happened and I hosted "Design & Revelry" at the beautiful Merrill-Wood Building in downtown Birmingham. The name, of course, is a direct reflection of the evening. I staged vignettes filled with my custom designs, curious finds and pieces from various vendors. And, the revelry? Well, you all know what can happen when you get those super fun people all together in one space. I think it's safe to say the evening was a social celebration of design. I wouldn't have had it any other way.
