Three Outdoor Spaces to Inspire!

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Last week I attended the Lowe’s Designer Challenge event in New York City on a gorgeous spring evening and I was so excited to see these spaces designed for a competition with $100,000 going to charity.  Each of the three designers worked with furnishings and materials from Lowe’s to create three unique amazing outdoor spaces.

Hello everyone, I’m just so glad it’s Friday!  Announcing the winner of last week’s Shutterfly Giveaway, here are the four winners:  #6 Barbara Brooks;  #115 Laura Sharbaugh; #395 Rebecca Kavan; and #421 Sarah Davenport.  Congratulations!

This past Monday evening, I was honored to attend a very cool event in New York City sponsored by Lowe’s, showcasing their line of Hi-Def paints in Valspar’s signature colors

The evening’s event began in this very cool downtown modern all white loft space brightened with splashes of Valspar paint samples all over the walls.

We were invited to mix and mingle with the other 30 bloggers invited, and greeting us were new quarts of fresh paint and paintbrushes for the upcoming challenges.  To me, paint always represents new beginnings and the ability to reveal hidden potential in just about anything.
