Chicago Botanic Garden Antiques & Garden Fair

As the daffodils and cherry blossoms bloom, I'm celebrating Spring's spirit of renewal by heading out to Chicago for the Antiques & Garden Fair opening this Friday, April 19 through to April 21.

Chicago, one of our country's foremost cities for architecture, has always been a hotbed of design. Fittingly, the fair has planned a wonderful schedule of style-centric events and speakers, including Michael Smith and Charles Stick.

I'll have the pleasure of dishing on design with lovely ladies Jennifer Boles of The Peak of Chic, Stylebeat's Marisa Marcantonio, and the fabulous Julia Reed on Saturday afternoon. Click here for more information. Hope to see you there!
