I have been posting about a lot of events lately. It seems that this is the time of year for design events!

Last night I went to HGTV’s Wine and Design event at the Top of the Rock, an event that celebrated HGTV’s top design talent. I am an avid HGTV watcher (OK, I’m pretty obsessed) from their real estate programming to their competition shows. It’s all in good fun, and I always seem to find something new or inspirational every time I tune in.

Anyway, I had a great time and I thought I’d share a few photos from the event…then we can get back to our regularly scheduled programming.

First, let me just tell you how beautiful the view is from the top. A-ma-zing. And everyone from HGTV is so tall. And tan.

There were probably 100-150 people there, and the wine was a-flowin’.

There were toasted mini HGTV sandwiches…

…and Carter Oosterhouse from Carter Can

Antonio Ballatore from The Antonio Treatment

Sabrina Soto from Get It Sold

David Bromstad from Color Splash

David Bromstad’s fierce Dolce&Gabbana high-top sneaks

Genevieve Gorder

Cindy Stumpo from Tough as Nails (I love her — she is a total badass)

The Design Star judges: Vern Yip, Genevieve Gorder, and Candice Olson. Hopefully Candice will forgive me for asking her to do my Mom’s living room. I get the feeling she gets asked that a lot!

The curly-haired lady in the nerd glasses you see in all of the photographs is me.
