We have a very difficult time getting out of bed in the morning without hitting the snooze button several times before finally trudging to the kitchen to make that first pot of coffee. We also sincerely miss naptime of elementary school days past. So when we are invited to spend part of the workweek relaxing on luxurious bedding, we’re there like Rip Van Winkle on Ambien. (Assuming he arrived prior to falling asleep.)
Last week, Serena Cole, Owner of DUXIANA, and real estate reporter, Candy Evans, welcomed select real estate professionals and interior designers to the posh store for heavy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. “The event was great [...] it was a great turn out, lots of designers, lots of realtors, and it was a lot of fun,” said Cole of the event at her store in Preston Center.
Evans, founder of Second Shelters, spoke about real estate trends. “I realized that there is a huge movement out there to people buying second and third homes,” she said. “I was getting all these wonderful brochures and invitations from second home developers […] and I was like, ‘Oh, this is great!’.” So how does one furnish these second and third homes? “A DUXIANA lasts forever,” is Evans’s advice.
Kim Turner and Lisa Robinson were also present to speak about Dwell with Dignity, a non-profit group that brings design to the less fortunate.
