11 Tips for Design Inspiration from High Point Market

11 Tips for Design Inspiration from High Point Market

This April, I was a part of the High Point Market Design bloggers tour. As someone who loves all things decor and design, I was elated to join and meet a fun group of bloggers and brands. If you are decorating your home this year, whether it is your first home or your last, you want it to reflect your southern personality and heritage. Southern means so many things to so many people and I have picked a few of my favorite takeaways from each showroom we visited while on this tour.

Next time you are looking for design inspiration, make sure to make a trip to High Point Market and freel free to reach out to us for more inspiration!
