HIGHLIGHTS: • At Internum, Michael S. Smith's wise words on what to invest in: "comfort and a paint job." • At Chateau Domingue, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, regaling fans with tales of designing celebrity homes, cautioned us to never lacquer in the summer. (He learned this the hard way in his Palm Springs home.) • Mark D. Sikes admiring his new furniture collection for Henredon for the first time (the real thing, not samples) at Meredith O'Donnell Fine Furniture. • Martyn Lawrence Bullard and Mark D. Sikes' charming chemistry as a hosting duo at the PaperCity Design Awards presentation. • Vicente Wolf and Madeline Stuart's frank conversation at David Sutherland, in which they heavily engaged the audience concerning the design business today, as well as the threats of disposable- design and knockoffs. • Realizing Texas is deeply blessed when it comes to luxury linen companies, with Biscuit Home, Hibiscus Linens, Jacquelyn Reese Appliqué Linens, Peacock Alley, and Tribute Goods all based in Texas, and all but Peacock Alley based in Houston. A bedding forum featured the newest collections, with luscious shoppable vignettes. • Rizzoli's Jessica Napp speaking on what to do — and not — re- garding getting a book published (copious notes were taken by all). • The Gables ShowFlats @ TXDW, two fully designed show apartments in Gables that Jamie House Design and Jawda and Jawda executed flawlessly (and made us want to grab the keys and move right in).
