{Life of a Design Daredevil} DesignSpeak Annual Party at ParkPacific Apartments

A few weeks ago I attended DesignSpeak’s annual members party with lots of fellow designers.   Kimberly Reuther began the organization to engage the local design community, educate homeowners, and promote local talent.  Every month she arranges a happy hour at a new and inspiring location within the city to mix, mingle, and make connections.

The Annual party was held at a location that is particularly personal to me: ParkPacific Apartments

ParkPacific is a multi-use, historically renovated building that was designed and developed by The Lawrence Group. I will be writting much much more about my relationship with this amazing property soon.  Until then, thank you to Kimberly for hosting a fantastic party and for all of the passion and enthusiasm you give us all year.  I’m looking forward to lots more memories.
