I'm a sucker for a well executed event and nothing is more exciting to me than bringing together clever business chicks in one room to network and collaborate. If the food and backdrop happen to be killer then that's even better.
Truth be told I've been lucky enough to attend some incredible events this year - and have been privy to see many happenings around the globe too - so moving forward I'll be sharing more of these industry events in a new 'Around Town' column launching in 2016 so stay tuned.
In the meantime I couldn't help but share an event (check out that centrepiece!) hosted by two dear friends in celebration of their new venture, The Decorating School. The launch of The Decorating School came about because friends, Emma Blomfield and Sonya Pala, kept seeing people struggling to create living spaces that reflected their values and supported their lifestyle. With their combined interests, Emma & Sonya realised if they aligned their knowledge and expertise, they could create an inspiring and genuinely useful online resource to help spread the principles and values of amazing design far and wide - collaboration at it's finest!
Stay tuned as their their inaugural course, Plan, Decorate, Live is now live and designed to instil confidence and provide basic design principles. In such a visual world I absolutely love how they combined a beautiful offline event to honour and celebrate their work online. Well done ladies on a stellar launch - big things ahead for 2016! x Jac
