The opportunity that awaits me in London next month is too good to pass up. I had a nice long talk with the Mister, and I decided to accept the gracious invitation that Modenus, Architectural Digest Home Show, and My Deco extended to me. There is a wonderful group of design and lifestyle bloggers attending, and I am certain that our sponsorship to the London Design Festival will prove to be an amazing life experience for us.My very first trip to London was days after I graduated high school in 1993. It was part of a whirl wind two week long European tour. I went on the trip with my AP Art History teacher, Ceil Jensen. My very favorite thing about that London trip was the V & A museum. Many moons later, (when we were living in London) I spent endless afternoons wandering that amazing space. In particular, I was fascinated with studying the textile gallery. It seems only appropriate that our very first stop on Blogtour will be tea at the V & A with William Knight, who is director of the design festival.There are many events I am looking forward to attending during blogtour – each of which have attracted sponsors like Blanco, Samuel Heath, Wallunica, and (as I mentioned before) Victoria & Albert. We will have five days in London to attend 100% Design, TENT, Design Junction, Decorex, and various other small design celebrations throughout the City.Most of all, I am very excited that they’ve scheduled time for us to have the opportunity to meet our UK blogging counter-parts, designers, artisans, and manufacturers. This will be a wonderful trip. Stay tuned for more details as they come in!
