This was my first time attending one of the largest furniture and décor markets in the world to discover the 2018 Home Design Trends at High Point Market. I was excited to see the latest and greatest and meet my fellow designers from across the country. This particular market is at High Point North Carolina, known as the High Point Market. The city rolled out the red carpet for over 70,000 attendees. The market takes over the entire city and covers 10 million square feet of exhibition space with roughly 2000 exhibitors in 180 buildings. Whew, that was a lot to tell you already! Now imagine how much I discovered in 7 days. I was inspired and excited to discover new lines to inject into my projects.

I asked other parents what their struggles were with school and it was almost unanimous – “Homework!” Homework is a tough one for us too. I’m a mother of 2 boys and, boy oh boy, homework is the toughest part of raising little humans.
