Blogfest 2012 by Kravet Fabrics was incredibly inspirational for me and the 150+ other attendees. Kravet's Marketing team led by Beth Greene went over the top to make our three day conference memorable. Here are a few photos that gave me inspiration for the year ahead.
Myself, Beth Green, EVP of Marketing & Strategic Branding, & Jennifer Powell, Social Media Coordinator. As a side note, if I had not had the pleasure to hear Jennifer speak on the power of Social Media earlier this year, I would have never had the pleasure of attending Blogfest 2012 or continuing to push Kirsten Nease Designs forward into the world of social media. (Thank you!)
We attended Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse...

On Day Three we were given a tour of the Kravet Studio on 22nd St. in NYC. What an inspirational place...and so much going on ... the new product for Kravet might just be the next must have for your home.
In the Lee Jofa Studio we saw hand blocked linen prints and studies of new color ways being hand painted.
