The countdown is officially on… Las Vegas Market is just a few weeks away! I’ve got our dream itinerary planned and now it’s time to prepare for Best of the West. If you’re not familiar, Best of the West is a really fun seminar that REstyleSOURCE puts on. (To be clear, it’s pretty much THE can’t-miss event at market.) I’m honored to be moderating, and am inspired by the lineup: Amy Bartlam of Amy Bartlam Photography in Los Angeles (and beyond), Wendy Blackband of BlackBand Design in Orange County, Laura Umansky of Laura U Interior Design in Houston, Lexi Westergard of Lexi Westergard Design in Phoenix, and Lindsey Borchard of Lindsey Brooke Design in Los Angeles. Talk about a dream team!

At the panel (which is on Monday, January 28 at 3:00 PM), we’ll be covering the iconic style of the West Coast. And since these industry leaders are all from different areas, this discussion will cover a lot of ground… literally. From the desert to the coast and everything in between, each expert will share how they interpret West Coast style. The panelists will be offering up tips along the way: what trends to embrace, what’s officially out for 2019, and how to develop a signature aesthetic. 

I wanted to get a little preview of what we can expect, so I asked the women to each share a project from their portfolio that they feel best embodies West Coast design. Though they all have a few common threads, each beautiful home is vastly different — and I couldn’t pick a favorite if I tried! Start the slideshow for a peek and we’ll see you in Vegas!
