But first, this month marks the three year blog anniversary for Vivid Hue Home.
I started this Vivid Hue Home design blog in January 2012 in an effort to channel my pent up design desires. It has been a terrific outlet into the design world. This has provided me with incredible opportunities. Before I make another big announcement, I thought I'd walk you through some of the milestones I've had with the blog:
I have met fantastic fellow designers that have become friends and supporters. Some, I've had the opportunity to meet IRL (in real life) and others, continue to be virtual supporters but their encouragement is endless.

I've had an opportunity to be featured in a few magazine spreads (one here and another national pub to be announced soon)
I have been a guest on many fabulous design blogs and been featured on them (Nantucket Style here) as well.

I even made it to the Time's Square marquee in a partnership with Baby Cafe. See that tiny ant-sized logo down there? (smile)
I've honed my own interior design skills and participated in multiple makeover challenges, including Linda's One Room Challenge. See others here.
It's an understatement to say that "Vivid Hue Home" as a design blog has brought me tremendous fulfillment.
And now, I've decided to take it a step further...
That's right, ya'll...
Vivid Hue Home is going to become a brick and mortar shop in the spring of 2015! For as long as I can recall, I have day dreamed about opening up my own home decor store.
I plan to take you on my journey of preparing for the grand opening! I will share my steps along the way. Everything from setting up an LLC to finding the actual location, to selecting inventory, to designing the storefront....
So hold on...this 2015 is sure to be exciting.
