Have you heard? Nashville is the next big thing in design. Oh yes. First off, there's this fabulous event coming soon . . .
That's right, the Tag Sale I've been teasing all these weeks has finally been set. Mark your calendars and plan your road trips accordingly. This is a don't-miss sale with goods from some of the most savvy Nashville bloggers out there - Me, You and a Wiener, ModFruGal and SquirrelPearl/Acorn + Archer (oh, and me too). It will be in a parking lot (I know, fancy), so hopefully the weather will cooperate.
In other news, while watching HGTV last night (which I don't do very often, so excuse me if this is old news), I saw a preview of a "sneak peek" of a new show that will debut next year (I think) called Interiors, Inc. It was so brief, I couldn't tell much about it, like where it was based. My curiosity piqued, I, of course, looked for more information online. It turns out, it's set in Nashville! Oh yes, the new design mecca. After further investigation, I found out it follows the crew at Pierce & Co. on their decorating escapades around town. I used to stop in Pierce & Co. when my hair salon was next door (my stylist moved a while back so I don't drop in like I used to). Here's a clip from the show . . .
It's a very cool store (not sure why they feel the need to call it a gallery) with some interesting things - all a bit pricey. If memory serves, they carry Jonathan Adler, Oly Studios, Lee Industries and maybe Arteriors Home, among other lines. After doing a little further digging on owner Jonathan Pierce, I found out he used to be a Christian Music artist (there are a lot of those around Nashville because it is Music City and all), then decided to open his design business about 10 years ago. As you might expect, he has some connections and thus some bigwig clients.
So, the sneak preview premieres tonight at 10/9, Central on HGTV right after Design Star (yikes). I'll be tuning in if nothing else to see my city featured.
Hope everyone has enjoyed a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
