The Design Panel was my very favorite part of the Antiques & Garden Show in Nashville.
I had the panel pegged as a discussion-like setting ~ a conversation amongst the panelists moderated by the oh-so-lovely Margo Shaw of flower magazine. I wondered how the discussion would flow or how slides would work into the presentation. (I hoped for slides!)
I should not have worried.
The panel consisted of four powerhouse design experts who are famously successful at living beautifully ~ each highlighting what inspires them most. They presented their version of living well in 15-20 minute segments, each with their own personal flair and slides to match.
Markham Roberts ~ Design inspiration
Christopher Spitzmiller ~ Lighting inspiration
Jane Scott Hodges ~ Linen inspiration
Michael Devine ~ Entertaining inspiration
Margo Shaw ~ Moderator extraordinaire
Markham Roberts was fabulous. Charming and witty and super talented. Sometimes I think of myself as up-to-date in the design world, but I am still trying to figure out how and why I have not heard his name extensively, because I could not have been more enamored with him. Listening to him for the entire 90 minutes would have been fine with me. He is definitely a new favorite of mine. SO FRESH, book ordered.

Christopher Spitzmiller is adorable. ADORABLE I tell you. And his lamps are to die for. I want a lamp or two for every single room in my house. Currently I have zero, but they are on my list. When I win the lottery. Unfortunately, they are pricey. But I promise you they are gorgeous. As is he.
This room by Alexa Hampton is one of my all-time favorites. Totally want to copy it for a guest room upstairs... Linens are fab!
