One down, three to go

The Dallas is show is over, and can I just tell you how great it was to get to see so many of you there? We loved meeting our customers face-to-face, and giving y'all the chance to see all our products in person. Thanks to everyone who came out to visit and support us.

Oh and did we mention that we received the "best window" award for our Dallas showroom? Special thanks to our marketing team and Kevin Ylvisaker for all their hard work and creativity in making our showroom look perfect.
 If you missed our Dallas show, don't worry because there are still plenty of chances for you to come see our newest collection (and all our other products too) in person.

Giving Back with Camp

One of the things that we are passionate about at Accent Decor is giving back to our community and using our resources to help those in need. There are several ways that we accomplish this goal as a company, which you can read about on our website on the Connect with a Cause page.

Summer-time is especially exciting for us because we have the opportunity to sponsor a few cabins of kids, allowing them to attend Camp Grace. Since 2005, Camp Grace has offered children from the at-risk communities of Georgia a week-long, overnight camp experience. Through the combination of incredible challenges, relevant instruction, and encouraging mentors these children are inspired to achieve greatness. Surrounded by a beautiful, natural setting and wonderful, caring people the children have the best week of their entire summer.Camp Grace is only for kids who couldn't other-wise afford camp, meaning that each child who attends camp is sponsored to pay for their week at camp.

It is an absolutely honor to be a part of this program, and my family has personally had the opportunity to be really involved with the work Camp Grace is doing, and to see the impact that Accent Decor's sponsorship is making on the lives of some really deserving kids.

So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. It is only your support of us that enables us to, in turn, support this wonderful place!

For more information about Camp, or to find out how you can help - you can visit their website.

I'm not sure if I mentioned this, but we have the fabulous Kevin Ylvisaker helping us design our showroom this year - so you definitely wont want to miss all his amazing creations!

New Specials and More

I think after Memorial Day, it's safe to officially say it's "summer" right? I know that it technically doesn't begin until June 21st, but I'd say that the scorching heat, sunshine, and school being out means summer is here!

We are celebrating with a new sale here at Accent Decor. Remember to always visit our "Specials" section to see what savings you can take advantage of . . . This week, save on the Galaxy paper, and the Essie stand and vase.
 Summer also means that showtime is just around the corner. We would love to have you join us at one (or all!) of our shows this summer. Start making your travel plans now - we will be in Atlanta, Vegas, and Dallas at our permanent showrooms, and we will keep you posted on a few other places and shows you can find us at too. And trust me, you are just going to LOVE all our new products this season - you don't want to miss visiting a show to see them in person!
