BlogPodium recaps

Like many Blog Podium attendees my mind is still buzzing from everything I heard. everyone has shared their experiences on these brilliant blog posts.

For starters it was just great fun. So much different than all the professional conferences I have attended over the years.
I've come to think of  that part of my life as being black and white and the rest is beautiful living colour.

Sarah Richardson's speech was fabulous. She shared some of her secrets to success which aren't secrets at all.  Work hard, stay focused, be true to yourself, build relationships, take risks, keep moving forward.
Ideas more specific to design include have  a point of view, have checks and balances, have a signature style, make a space memorable with history and soul and don't forget to add some whimsy.
No wonder we all love her work. She mentioned this Makeover is being published for the fourth time.

The bathroom vanity was $200 from Pier 1.
I have the same mirror in our bathroom painted a different green. I had the builders leave their standard icky mirror off and we put this one up instead.
It was nice to hear from Sarah herself there is nothing wrong with cheap if it is good. That is my mantra for the cottage.
