Happy Monday! I can't believe our two weeks of shooting Tips and Tricks videos and inspiring designs with our two fabulous designers are already over. I wanted to start your week off right by sharing another quick peek behind the scenes as we shot Tips and Tricks videos with Kevin. And for good measure, I'm throwing in some lovely event inspiration from across the web as well.

Next Week in Norcross

We have something very exciting coming up next week . . . Here at Accent Decor, we have always had two or three really big photoshoots every year to update all our images for the website, catalogs etc. We flew in designers and they would film Tips and Tricks, set up gorgeous designs, take lots of pictures etc . . . This year, however, we've decided to do things a little differently. We are hoping this new direction will allow for all of YOU to be more involved in our design and inspiration process, as well as ensuring that we have a constantly updating stream of new images, designs, and more. So instead of designers coming a few times a year, we are going to have a different designer come out to our office/warehouse/showroom in Norcross every month or so. While they are here they will design, and use our newest products, and probably film a T2 video or two . . . And the best part is that we would love for you to stop by if you're in the Norcross area and come see what we're cooking up!

Next week is the first designer's visit, and we couldn't be more excited. Our first designer is Brooke Raulerson. Brooke is a second generation AIFD floral designer. She started an independent consulting and freelance visual merchandising company in 2001. As a past visual merchandiser for Dillliards and Steinmart stores, Brooke brings the best of both industries and experiences combined with award winning floral designs to every project. Brooke has studied marketing, interior design and advertising along with multiple certifications in floral design. Brooke has one several awards including "Designer of the Year" for the Florida State Florist Association.
