The crowd was a gorgeous assortment of the heavy hitters in design, bloggers and just those creative minds that make lives more beautiful. It was the mega-stars in the interior design industry celebrating what makes our profession so great. Vicente Wolf was chatting it up with Mario Buatta, as Peter Marino showed off his leather gear alongside Bunny Williams, while Jamie Drake was comparing the metallic sheen of his blazer against mine... It was awesome!

The evening was one that I was extremely fortunate to be a part of, and proud to be in the company of such greatness. The festive crowd was captured on film and can be viewed on Patrick McMullan's site. It was a night that I am still overwhelmed to have been a part of, but just pushes me to strive to be an honoree in the very near future!...
