the best products i didn’t style-spot
May 7th, 2012
Wow! I cannot even tell you how grateful I am. Thanks to all of your “likes” and “repins,” I was the top Style Spotter for the April 2012 High Point Market! I am practically speechless over the honor. The best part of winning is that it means I will be back as a Style Spotter for the October 2012 High Point Market . There were so many amazing products that it was nearly impossible to choose twenty-five favorites … and now I’ll have twenty-five more in the fall. Yay!
Can I take a minute to say that you absolutely must visit the other Style Spotters’ Pinterest boards? Shay’s photo of the C.R. Laine Iliad Chair was the most repinned “style spot,” and I am not surprised. As soon as I saw this gorgeous vignette, I knew it was a winner!
But now I’m going to devote a few blog posts to the beyond fabulous products that didn’t make my top twenty-five choices — or anyone else’s, for that matter. Why didn’t anyone choose them? It’s definitely not that they didn’t deserve it! By the end of my time at market, I was wishing, wishing, wishing for at least five more “style spots” to hand out. Do you like how I foreshadowed that you’ll probably get five posts on products I didn’t choose? I’m super sneaky like that.
Painted and hand-distressed, they are proudly made in the USA … and carry a warranty on the finish. I was floored — hahahahaha — by how beautiful they are in person. And I see a lot of hardwood floors so I don’t consider myself particularly easy to impress.
Hardwood floors are a fantastic choice for moms of multiples … in all rooms. Wood is softer — and warmer — on little hands and knees than stone or tile and easier to clean than carpet. And hey, with a Swiffer or a dust mop, you can entertain your little ones and get clean floors at the same time. Score!
