PANELISTS NAMED FOR 3rd ANNUAL DESIGNER DREAM SPREE

Round Top Texas – September 24-26, 2018

Julie Dodson of Houston-based Dodson Interiors announced today the four nationally known A-list designers that will participate in the 3nd Annual Designer Dream Spree to be held at Round Top Antiques Festival, September 24-26, 2018. 

New York’s esteemed designer, Jeffrey Bilhuber, who has been likened to Billy Baldwin and Albert Hadley, and who’s work needs no introduction, will bring his traditionalism expertise to Round Top, Texas for a Panel Discussion entitled “Exceptional Discoveries”. Jeffrey will join Texas’ own trailblazer and global traveler Michelle Nussbaumer who is no stranger to Round Top. Her projects and designs are frequently featured in the pages of leading national and international magazines. Elle Décor has called her “a fearless style monger known for her dizzying trove of antiques and signature line of fabrics, furniture and lighting”.

Best-selling author and international tastemaker, designer, and TV personality Thom Filicia, the driving force behind the Thom Filicia Home Collection, and featured on the Emmy winning “Queer Eye For The Straight Guy” will share the platform with Atlanta-based Susan Ferrier. A native New Yorker, Susan is noted for creating sensuous, wonderfully atmospheric interiors with an intuitive approach to design.

The Panel Discussion, “Exceptional Discoveries” will be moderated by TV celebrity and style expert Carson Kressley along with Carolyn Englefield, Design Editor of VERANDA magazine. It will be followed by an Open Discussion when the audience is invited to present questions from the floor to the designers.

The Designer Dream Spree is considered 2018’s Best Design Event in Texas by Modern Luxury’s Texas Interiors. All four designers will participate in the Panel Discussion which takes place on September 25 at 4 pm at The Compound, 2550 South State Highway 237, Round Top, Texas. The Panel Discussion is open to the public for a nominal charge of $35 with all proceeds benefiting local area animal shelters.

 

CARSON KRESSLEY RETURNS TO 3rd ANNUAL DESIGNER DREAM SPREE AS ONE OF TWO MODERATORS

Not surprisingly, Emmy-award winning TV personality Carson Kressley stole the show last year during the 2ndAnnual Designer Dream Spree at Round Top. As one of the four esteemed panelists, he entertained the audience with his light-hearted banter and MC’d an event that raised over $7500 for Dwell With Dignity. So you can imagine how thrilled we are to see his return for the 3rdAnnual Designer Dream Spree September 24-26 as a moderator along with VERANDA magazine’s Carolyn Englefield.
