Blogtour NYC | Day 2 | At the AD Home Design Show

Hope you enjoyed reading my former post about Day 1 and on what we did in New York during Blogtour! At day 2 we were up early already and after a good breakfast on our way to the AD Home Design show. Starting at ten with the annual Mary’s and Mimosas event where we met and mingled with the NYC design Media. This networking event, was originally started in 2011 by Veronika of Modenus who had this idea of bringing interior design bloggers she knew together with the Media and designers. Today it is a must-attend event for the New York Design scene. 

Later on after lots of coffee’s and a first look on what ADHD show was about we got to have a look at DIFFA Dining by Design tabletop ideas. Barry Dixon of Arteriors gave us a little tour and we had  look at all the table settings. If you are into table settings you would have loved this and I had to think of some of you other bloggers seeing this! Here is a small impression of things that caught my eye!

The table setting on top is an Inspiration Statement: Beauty represented by the image is distorted by voids representing HIV/AIDS. The void in the tableware is for everyone to remember what needs to be done. Images below are of the table setting of the New York school of Interior Design. Mentor : Marc Blackwell

We spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the show and I will show you some more of my favorites in another post later!

Loved The Miele USA Booth and not only because they were one of the sponsors of Blogtour! Even the fruit and food in the huge fridges was styled and the hanging garden was pretty amazing!

After a long day we were still chatting, writing and enjoying ourselves…. As Tim said we are a fun bunch to have around! We headed home in some taxi’s that were waiting for us … Thank you Modenus for not having to queue up in  that long line of tired people … we ended the evening close to the Hotel in a Hamburger dining with, for me, a delicious Vega Burger.
