We’re officially at the halfway point of Texas Design Week here in Houston and wow, y’all — it’s ready been so wonderful! Texas Design Week happens twice a year – Houston in the spring and Dallas in the fall – and is jam-packed with incredible speakers, continuing education events, PaperCity design awards and more. This year is especially exciting for our team because we’re ending the week with the launch of the BLVD Show House, opening this Saturday!

Texas Design Week Kick-off Party

Our team kicked off the festivities on Sunday with a fabulous party co-hosted by Laura U, Olivia + Poppy, and TXDW at the home of our amazing clients, Tina and Dan Silvestri. Tina is the Creative Director behind the beautiful wallcoverings at Olivia + Poppy, many of which we incorporated into the design of their new home. I cannot wait to show you the entire project, but here’s a little sneak peek for now!

Neiman Marcus TXDW Party

And tonight’s main event is taking place at Neiman Marcus in the Galleria! Our Principal and Lead designers, Letecia and Shannon, collaborated to create two stunning window displays that capture the essence of Houston interior design and fashion. Using graphic wallpaper from Olivia + Poppy as their backdrop, our designers incorporated beautiful pieces from fashion houses Oscar de la Renta, Tom Ford, Christian Louboutin, and Judith Lieber, with a mixture of modern furniture, art, and antiques from Kartell, Be Design, and Carl Moore Antiques to celebrate Texas Design Week. The photos seriously don’t do it justice, so be sure to check them out in person at tonight’s party at Neiman Marcus at 6 PM or when you valet park in front of the store this week!
