Design Camp Seattle recap

I had an excellent time at AB Chao’s Design Camp here in Seattle. The Pantry at Delancey was a perfect and charming location (and so very convenient to Essex’s 4:30 opening time). I came away from the two day class looking at my house with a critical and organized view and with a clear plan for a whole bunch of problem spots (ahem, my window coverings). The second day of class included going over a room in each attendees home and mine was troublesome, I think all my classmates might agree. The exercise was amazing because I found myself applying everything I’d learned the day before and, this was great, feeling like I can do this. Among the swag that comes with the class is a USB/bottle opener (right?!) with the whole presentation on it including the resources that I completely forgot to write down.

My favorite bits, though, were getting to hang with the women whose sites I’ve read for years: da*xiang, Erica Mulherin and of course AB Chao. Ladies, it was an honor!

You can find more pictures of Design Camp Seattle over at AB Chao’s site because somebody forgot to charge her camera battery and needed to use my camera instead. Only with her way-better lens.

    I’m sure there is nothing good design-wise about my house. I don’t even have the foggiest idea of where to start (other than probably throwing out some stuff)!

    I didn’t either but the class gave me a good set of ways to look at a room and know what needs to be changed. And of course I can always do with getting rid of more stuff around here too.

    Sounds intriguing but I’m not so sure how well my self-esteem could handle talented design bloggers critiquing my humble home decor ;)

    um, how did I not have something like this on my radar. Next time you do some sort of nerdy class like this – lemme know. I will take it with you. :)
