    Janis Ian's The Tiny Mouse, Fantasy Faire SL & Brain Pickings's Children Books

    in Current Events

    This is the final week of National Poetry Month. I've been trying to attend at least one literary event in the greater Boston area. I attended a reading by Author Maxine Hong Kingston. Today's episode will focus on Janis Ian's The Tiny Mouse, Fantasy Faire in SL, Brain Pickings's list of 15 children's books. This Sunday, I'm hosting a special two-hour poetry event with a fellow writer at Fantasy Faire 


    Poetry at Fantasy Faire, April 23-May 3


    Celebrating its seventh year, Fantasy Faire 2015 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world. From Thursday, April 23 to Sunday May 3, treat yourself to eleven days of shopping, live music concerts, auctions, hunts, events and roleplaying as thousands of Second Life residents and creators bring their own visions together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.

    About Brain Pickings


    Brain Pickings is a cross-disciplinary LEGO treasure chest, full of pieces spanning art, science, psychology, design, philosophy, history, politics, anthropology, and more; pieces that enrich our mental pool of resources and empower combinatorial ideas that are stronger, smarter, richer, deeper and more impactful. Above all, it’s about how these different disciplines illuminate one another to glean some insight, directly or indirectly, into that grand question of how to live, and how to live well.

    Designer diagnosis. How do know what your clients really want?

    in Design

    Top designers are talking about their strategies for ‘designer diagnosis,’ sleuthing out what people really want in their interior design.


    Designers tread a careful path when trying to find out your true interior design dreams. What we say we like, isn't necessarily what we really want in our homes. It's the designer’s challenge to decipher, extrapolate, and really compare your taste, style, and day-to-day lifestyle. Being able to translate what you say, who you are, and what you do into a design that comforts, inspires, and delights you is what separates the very best designers from the rest.


    We are talking to three extraordinary designers on today’s show about their ‘designer diagnosis’ style. The ‘Latina Martha Stewart’’ Vanessa DeLeon and the ‘Two Lovely Gays’ pair Russell Whitehead and Jordan Cluroe. 


    Vanessa DeLeon may be best recognized from NBC’s ‘American Dream Builders.’ She also has shared her design expertise on Food Networks, Restaurant Impossible, HGTV’s Generation Renovation, Designer Challenge & more. Vanessa has a signature 'Glamilistic' style that's developed into luxurious and succulent design experiences. But it all started with designing a Barbie house. And, yes, we’ll be talking about the ‘50 Shades of Grey’ bedroom she designed, too. 


    The ‘Two Lovely Gays’ Russell and Jordan became sensations in Britain after participating in the The Great Interior Design Challenge on BBC Two. With an exuberance and cutting-edge style the team are making over spaces that dazzle our senses. But the real star of their clan may be their dog Buckley.

    Hanna Packer is an award-winning landscape designer known for creating stunning gardens that are harmonious, sophisticated, and functional.

    Hanna is currently on  exhibit at Sotheby’s second annual Designer Showcase in New York open from 11-19 April.


    Hanna Packer & Susan Cohen have been chosen to create a Showcase garden for the fifth floor exhibition space at Sotheby’s Manhattan headquarters where thirteen interior designers and design firms have curated a home.

    Mondays With M.O.G.U.L. Mom DuJour: Living By Design, Not By Default

    in Entrepreneur

    Have you ever wondered what it takes to design a new home, or a corporate office space?


    How did these designers know exactly how to take a bland space and make it bold and bodacious?


    Join me and my guest Nikki Klugh, the owner of one of the fastest-growing design firms in San Diego and find out how.


    Not only is Nikki a phenomenal designer, she is the 2014 RADICAL Woman Award Recipient, a 2014 San Diego's Woman of the Year Nominee and 2015 Women of Influence Award Nominee. 


    Nikki has been officially designing for 14 years, but truly she has been evaluating, study and dissecting space and design as far back as she can remember.  She leads a team of seven designers and she has served hundreds of homeowners in their home and work spaces.  She has developed her own unique approach to interior design—an approach that is changing the conversation of the interior design industry.  She is widely known for her sacred spaces and her inviting and accepting personality.

    Nikki has designed for corporate CEOs, law firm partners, and many high-profile people across the country.  She has given them a place of respite and their own personal sanctuary. 


    She is a wife, a Mom and a woman who exudes the entrepreneurial spirit.


     


    Tune is on Monday, April 20th @ 8pm EST and hear the story of this amazing woman and how she is living the life of her dreams.
