HomeGoods Blogger Days

I had so much fun and a great learning experience on Boston this past week, I can’t even begin to recollect all the memories for still being so fill with excitement. HomeGoods invited us nine bloggers of the DesignHappy blog for two days of great information on design and the best Design Challenge ever! 

We got the chance to visit their immense headquarters in Framingham, MA and met with some of the people behind all the HomeGoods Happy Team! Aside all this, we even received a surprise visit from Wendy Scofield, Art Director at Lonny Magazine; how cool was that! She gave us some good pointers and inside look on their photography shoots. I was mesmerized by all their great locations and the attention to details their publication go through before going online. 
Arriving to Boston, I couldn’t imagine that besides all the HomeGoods surprises, I was about to witness some snow falling! I was excited as a little girl since we don’t get to see snow here in Miami. What a beautiful city Boston is!
On this day also, we visited HomeGoods warehouse and this was really a mind blowing experience. We were greeted by the Product Development and Exploratory Buyer team and they gave us a peek (a big one!) on what’s to come to stores during the rest of this year. We also got a glimpse on 2015 trends (which we promise not to tell, sorry!) 
Some memories from the day of the Bloggers Style Challenge, a rough sketch of my kitchen area concept (which was later post on HomeGoods Instagram account), all the props and goodies for styling and Mr. Sloan taking the professional shots of Jessica’s space (Four Generations One Roof). 
On our second day, we each got the opportunity to style an assigned staged home area on the huge photographic studio of Gary Sloan. A couple of minutes after 10 a.m. we ran to pick up our space props and during the next two hours, devoted entirely to design and style! Gary even gave each of us some excellent tips on angles to consider when taking a photograph, based on the area and design concept. My space was the kitchen which I have to add it was so impressively illuminated, I’ve had people on Instagram commented on how goooooood is that light coming from the window!
Here are some snippets from the bloggers areas and mine. Enjoy what was my “Daily Dose of Happiness“!

    This storage place is a great place to use for monthly storage. They were quite responsive to email and phone calls. I had a few questions which I sent over email and they always responded within a half hour or less.
