I feel like this acronym is a little cliche, HOWEVER it happens to be my name. Several years ago I went on a weekend trip to Los Angeles. Later that year I visited New York. While chatting with a girlfriend about my trips she said, ‘Hey! New York Los Angeles…it’s your name, NYLA!” Two of my favorite cities end up creating my name when you put them all together, which I think is quite possibly the reason why my bags are always packed and waiting at the door, ready to take on any new adventure.
This year has definitely been a year of travel and I couldn’t be more thrilled to add New York to the list of cities I’ve visited.
I’ll be attending the ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) and Blogfest, a three day conference sponsored by Kravet Fabrics that will be filled with the most amazing line up of events, speakers, home tours and inspiring people. I can hardly contain myself and can’t wait to tell you all about it. If it’s anything like the Design Bloggers Conference I attended in Los Angeles it will be nothing short of fabulous.
If that isn’t enough, on Thursday I’m getting together with someone I met at the Traditional Home party in LA to have a tour of their workplace, but I’m keeping this one a secret for now :)
And let’s not forget about the people. There are so many that I can’t wait to meet and see again that inspire and encourage me everyday. Rooms full of creative minds, bursting with energy, ideas and insights…yes please!
