BLOGFEST DAY TWO….Greeted by an Icon

I know that I haven't done a post for day one of blogfest, but today was by far my favorite day since I've been here in New York.  We listened to a presentation done by an icon in interior design...Barbara Barry

I can not begin to put into words the feeling I got from listening to her speak.  So soft, so pure, so real... Here is a clip of her talking about her line for Kravet. Although it's not exactly what she said today, I wanted you to get a feel of how she explains her design aesthetic.
