Getting Down to the Wire...Marin Designer Showcase and Serena and Lily

I am using the Fisherman's Cable Throw on the bench at the end of the bed at the Marin Designer Showcase 
It is down to the wire this week. I am getting ready for the Marin Designer Showcase installation! I am frantically collecting all of the last little bits...... you know.....all of the special details that add personality to a space. I am gathering sailing trophies and vintage sailing magazines, odd sorts of coral and painted Manzanita branches, industrial glass beakers and vintage fishing rods. I am covering books with fabric, and looking for light bulbs for all of the lamps. I am buying fabric steamers and collecting everything in my toolbox....picture hangers, Swiffer dusters, double stick foam tape, hammers and screw drivers. I just know I will forget something even though I have lists upon lists.

Thank goodness for the ladies of Serena and Lily! Many of you know about this perfect treasure trove put together by, you guessed it.... Serena and Lily. These entrepreneurial women started their business together in 2003 and have been going strong ever since. You can read all about their serendipitous meeting HERE. In the beginning, they focused on bedding and furnishings for the nursery, but luckily for the grown-ups, they expanded to include all of us! Their bedding, furniture, decor and fabrics are all available online.

The point? Well, I have been very lucky to have the support of Serena and Lily for the room I am putting together for the Showcase! They have been so very generous and so lovely to work with! I put together a wish list hoping they might be able to lend a few things. They have been kind enough to lend everything (even when I add a few more items to the list!) and are even delivering it all to the home! 

So I have to give a round of snaps to the wonderful team at Serena and Lily! (Needless to say, I love selecting things from them for my clients....heavenly beds and charming bedding for children's rooms. AND they have a great Bazaar of one of a kind finds....so hop on over!)

These are but a few of the items you will see in the Guest Suite by Katie Denham Interiors at the Marin Designer Showcase.      
This Brazilian Rug will be in the adjoining Bathroom to cozy up the stone tile floors
A couple of these Bamileke Side Tables will be the perfect place to toss a towel in the Bathroom. 
This campaign style Beckett Chair made out of sheesham wood will be sitting at the desk I designed in the Guest Suite.
The Marin Designer Showcase will hold its Opening Night Gala on January 31st, and will be open to the public through the month of February. I hope you all have a chance to visit! For all of the information on dates, times, events and ticket sales, be sure to hop on over HERE!
