Dinner with Albert Hadley

June 8, 2011

The wall directly in front of my desk in our office is lined with cork. It has been a really fun way to display photos, cards and other items that have meaning to me. I am always on the hunt for unique push pins, so those too are visually appealing. The wall is probably 12 feet long, so there is ample space to have a rotating gallery of objects.

I was sitting having my lunch yesterday and was reminded of the amazing dinner in Chicago where I got to meet design icon Albert Hadley, who was the guest of honor. I was completely and utterly charmed by him. He was incredibly gracious, warm and witty the entire evening. It was a dinner & night I will always look back on with great fondness.

The cork lined wall really has become an inspiration space, and it’s contents filled with fabulous memories.
