{within-spiration | trendspotting in Nashville}

Happy Monday! We're back! 
Within Studio took a few months break to research and travel and explore the design world so that we could bring you some daily inspiration in 2015! Today I want to chat with you about a fantastic trip that I went on last September with Wilsonart Laminate.

Within Studio had the pleasure of attending a wonderful Trendspotting Trip with some of the most inspiring interior design business owners in the United States.
Four long and exciting days of touring Nashville and diving into its trends. The designers were divided into groups that went to different parts of the city and our assignment was to photograph what inspired us. The following day we were to put together presentations of our findings. Amazingly enough there were similarities in all of the presentations. 

Now I don't have our presentation with me because it's now top secret and in a vault at Wilsonart. Our findings will inspire the new laminates that will be released....so I can't share with you our little secret. What I can share is some of the stops that we found along the way that we loved. I will do this throughout this month. For now I leave you with some more images of this fun trip!
 First off..my hotel room! We stayed at the Hutton Hotel  which was amazing! Right in the middle of everything. This hotel took such great care of us. I cannot speak highly enough of them. Rooms were perfection, service impeccable and food was finger licking good. A must stop on your next visit to Nashville.


 As I said earlier, I had the pleasure of meeting amazing designers from all over the country. These lovely ladies were from Washington, Arizona, and New York. Spending four days with them was such a treat. 

 I was prepared to do some trend spotting....


 Wilsonart took great care of us. Even our goodie bags were filled with yummies!





We had a blast and I would do it again in a heartbeat! So stay tuned this Month for tons of Nashville goodies coming your way!

It was a pleasure to host and be inspired by such a great group of designers and women!
