My what a difference a year makes! Today we are celebrating a special occasion! Blow out the wallpaper candles…September is our Birthday month! That’s right we have been providing our readers all things Interior Design from home styling advice, trend watches, trade show coverage, and custom curated E-Design service for a whole year! We are so excited to have you apart of our design community! While we we be celebrating all month long, today we are taking a look back at what we have been up to!
1.High Point Market
Twice a year the home furnishing world descends upon High Point, NC for its biannual furniture show. Here new products are launched and design trends are born. If you want to stay on top on what is current, and possibly sight a celebrity or two, High Point Market is the place to be! While it may feel like one big party, there is work to be done! Continuing Education Courses, Style Spotting, Showroom Tours and catching up with industry trends are some of our absolute favorites.
Here at Dayziner we released our own Trendwatch:Countdown to High Point Market forecasting all we expect to see at the south east hottest show. And then of course an aftershow market recap for our friends that couldn’t attend.
New for the Spring we introduced our first Super Designer Post Live from the Showroom floor. (Read on for all things Super Designer Below!) Next up, Dayziner will be attending Fall Market in October! Check back soon for our coverage on the show.
2. Design Influencer’s Conference
In March we had the opportunity to travel to sunny Beverly Hills, California and attend the Design Influencer’s Conference (formerly Design Bloggers Conference)! This marked our first visit to the West Coast and helped to establish our brand on a national level.
Not only did we have the opportunity to be a guest blogger for the conference, we were also a celebrity for the day and interviewed straight from the red carpet! In a total fangirl moment, we met Sasha Strebe, editorial director of My Domaine and Jungalow founder Justina Blakeney. Our little designer hearts are exploding just thinking about it!
We are thrilled to now be part of the Lamps Plus family and are forever grateful for the opportunity. Can’t wait to do it all again in Atlanta next year!
We have been big fans of Wayfair for quite some time now. In April, we had the opportunity to partner with Wayfair on their Spring campaign. We designed a Bohemian inspired cocktail party featuring some of our favorite Wayfair products that are of course, stylish, affordable and oh-so-chic! In case you missed it you can find it here, also be sure to check out our Nautical Inspired Lakehouse retreat featuring Wayfair products.
In June we officially partnered with Wayfair to offer Design Services. That’s right! If you love our style we can now design a space exclusively for you via the Wayfair platform! The process, is collaborative, fun and affordable. Give it a try!
New to E-Design? Not sure what it is or if it’s right for you? Not to worry we got you covered! You can learn all about the process HERE. Design has reached the 21st century and it’s now more accessible than ever before. We specialize in harnessing the power of technology by bringing personalized design straight to your inbox.
We love to connect with other members of the design community. We also love to solve your design problems and share the tips and tricks we learned along the way. We are honored to be featured in a number of publications, both online and print. Have a question or would like a professional design commentary for your next article? Contact us today!
5. Shop the Look
One of our most favorite roles as designers is well…designing! What we love most about our Shop the Look feature is that its completely re-createable (did we just make up a word?!) Possibly. But hey…we’re celebrating!
Not only do we show you a fully styled room but we also let you know where you can get every piece and provide a breakdown of why we made the choices we made. It’s the ultimate two in one for design lovers!
6. How-To Series
Let’s face it, we have been designers for a LONG time! Which means at this point, we know what we are doing. Although this is a craft that you never fully master, we did learn a lot along the way. And we are here to share it with you!
We have posted the Top 5 Tools Used by Interior Designers and tips for How to Be your Own Designer. We provide style guides covering some of our favorite design styles so you can learn the best practices to mastering the style on your own!
7. Super Designer
Now this one is just for fun! What do you get when you mesh super heroes with interior designers? Super Designer of course! What started out as an Instagram series has now become its own page on our site.
We pose in iconic super hero poses but with a twist. We swap out an object in the scene for a home decor product that we know and love. So if you wander around the site, you might catch us in a silly pose. Because really, design isn’t that serious, its about having fun and enjoying what you do. And if anyone asks…we did it for the ‘gram!
Speaking of Instagram, our following count has grown! We started the year with zero followers. And now we are up to 2,200! While we may still be learning about Stories, Algorithms and Hashtags, we are growing! We now feel established and here to stay and its all because of YOU! Thank you, from the bottom of our little designer hearts!
