Hello dear friends, I want to give you my fair schedule for Q1 2019 so bloggers and clients can meet up with me or arrange to attend some of my lectures, etc. I will also be scheduling video interviews at Formland in Herning, Denmark and at imm Cologne for brands and designers, and bloggers too, so if you’d like to be part of my video interview series, you can email my assistant Jessy@decor8blog.com and she’ll get you on the schedule.
Here is a full run of where I will be between January and April.
Dates I’ll be there: January 12-13, 2019
At this fair, I will once again welcome some of Europe’s top design bloggers: Desiree from Vosgesparis, Stefan from TrendStefan, Niki from My Scandinavian Home, Igor from Happy Interior Blog and Urban Jungle Bloggers, Mette from Monsterscircus and Agata from Passion Shake. We will also have a special guest, rug expert and blogger Michael Christie (The Ruggist) from Canada.
I will have a stand or “FRAME” showing favorite rugs from vendors and a large moodboard where I’ll show European design influencers and some of their favorite rugs, in collaboration with Steinhoff in Hannover who loaned all of the furniture and the most gorgeous rug for the design I’ve made for the space (A very special thank you to Anard Steinhoff and his fantastic team) and paint for the FRAME walls will by sponsored by Farrow & Ball. You can see the decor8 FRAME during all four days of the fair.
Additionally at Domotex, I’ll be with my expert panel (listed above) to deliver talks both Saturday and Sunday, 12 and 13 January, so please make sure to attend. If you are not a retailer or from the trade and cannot register for a ticket, please email my assistant Jessy@decor8blog.com and we will do what we can to get you in for the lectures/panels.
There will be a BLOGGER TOUR on Saturday, so any bloggers/influencers who are interested in attending should also email Jessy@decor8blog.com to get on the list.
Dates I’ll be there: January 14-16, 2019
I will be attending this fair on assignment for Living At Home magazine and also Living At Home x Holly magazine, so this will be a special assignment for me since I’ll be with an assistant from the magazine who will pre-arrange interviews for me and I’ll meet with some of the best and most interesting designers and brands in the world to produce videos and also photo essays from our trip. I will give you more information in the weeks ahead about this special assignment, but I can’t wait!
For the first day, I’ve been invited by special invitation from the Koelnmesse and the Verbandes der Deutschen Möbelindustrie for a special blogger tour and dinner in celebration of 100 Years of Bauhaus. I’m really looking forward to this special day, and to see Niki and Desiree again, too.
Dates I’ll be there: January 31 + February 1, 2019
This is a fair where I’ll also have a stand, in the entry hallway, along with 3 other influencers who have strong opinions on trends and interiors like me, including Stefan Nilsson and the ever-inspiring Anette Eckmann. In this stand, I’ll show you more than 40 of my favorite products from the fair so you can visit my stand anytime during the fair to see what I found that may be interesting for you to source during your visit, too.
Happily, I’ll again be working with Formland to produce a lecture and panel, so stay tuned to learn more about that. I’ll be posting again about Formland after Christmas.
Dates I’ll be there: February 2, 2019
This is a fair I’ve been attending and supporting for quite awhile because it centers on young design and new talent and I love the inspirational atmosphere and the overall energy from the exhibitors. I also launched my 4th book at this fair in 2016.
This time, I’ll be launching something else - the debut issue of Living At Home x Holly. It will release to the public on January 24 but at Blickfang, I will personally be there to show my magazine, sign copies if asked, and to welcome the press and bloggers/influencers to a very networking/meet and greet event (details to follow here in early January).
I can’t wait to tell you more… I would love to meet you there!
Dates I’ll be there: The full week
I will definitely be back in Milan in April, just not sure who I’m working for there yet and what I’ll be doing. And I have NO CLUE where to stay overnight. Ugh. Milan is always a big headache when it comes to finding a hotel. If you have suggestions, please let me know! Just NO Air B&B, I have had too many friends book Milan dates with Air B&B only to have properties cancel the night before or the day of their trip. Anyway, I love being at the fair and seeing my friends and spending a week totally inspired by design and art. It’s fantastic!
Okayyyy so my dear friends, those are my fair dates for Q1 2019.
