This has been a wonderful week.  I finished up the last design project for the year (phew!) and attended a holiday luncheon with my fab peers of the Alliance of Interior Designers.  AID is a professional organization for designers here in NC.  A better, more supportive, more talented, more beautiful group of creative geniuses cannot be found!  Our luncheon was held at the Brier Creek Country Club in Raleigh.  Lots of festive sparkle greeted us right from the start.

Traditional holiday decor always brings a smile and a warm glow.

After the luncheon, the uber-talented Doris Raymond of Doris Raymond Interiors invited everyone over to her home to take a look at her national award winning kitchen. Click on this link to see photos of it.  It’s am amazing space, just jam-packed with brilliant ideas.  I had seen it before, but I hadn’t seen her recently renovated living room:

Look at this Christopher Guy mirror!

This mirror is on a wall that’s backed with ultra-suede.  Delishy.

Here’s Doris with her fox throw.  She’s talented and fun.

Purrrrrrrrrrr

I went to the AID Facebook page and found this great picture of many of us to share with you:
