VANCOUVER STAGER HOB NOBS WITH DESIGN ROYALTY-PART I

GENEVIEVE GORDER – DEAR GENEVIEVE

As a Vancouver Home Stager, I feel it’s important to keep on top of the latest design trends and happenings in the design industry.  On a recent visit to the Las Vegas Furniture Market, we were delighted to meet New York Interior Designer, Genevieve Gorder.

I remember seeing Genevieve for the first time on TLC’s Trading Spaces.  I always loved her innovative and creative designs.  I was also impressed with how absolutely nice she seemed.  Later, I was pleasantly surprised to see Genevieve host her very own show, Dear Genevieve.  This show followed Genevieve’s unique design process while she transformed difficult or uninspiring spaces into warm, comfortable, inviting rooms which reflected the home owner’s personality.

Fast-forward to today, and Genevieve Gorder is promoting a new line of rugs she has designed for Capel Rugs.  I love the casual yet beautiful look of these rugs.  Inspired by Moroccan and Ikat patterns, these rugs would look fabulous in pretty much any setting.  The colours are hot and yet timeless at the same time.

You know what else?  Genevieve really is nice in person!  That was no act on T.V.  Thank you so much, Genevieve for taking the time to chat with us and best of luck with your new line of rugs.  I know they will fly off the shelf!

Wow, that's pretty awesome Sally. I've seen her on the telly before, but I rarely watch shows about homes, I prefer the cooking shows myself. I have enough drama on a daily basis in my own life in regards to all things related to houses.

Why, Hello Gentlemen!

Malcolm - I have to say, cooking shows have their fair share of drama - have you ever watched Gordon Ramsay's "The F Word"?  That's enough to put a blush on your tomatoes!

Fred - Oh, you smoothie!  Yes, I like to think Genevieve was lucky to meet me!!!  Ha ha!  Love Ya

David - Well, I believe Genevieve is based in New York - a whole world away from San Francisco!  And trust me, she really is great!  She calls the Morrocan pattern "Arabesque".  Love it!

What a cool perk to chat with her while you were there. She's so relatable and I love how she pushes her clients out of their comfort zone. Now, where can I find these rugs? I'll take the orange arabesque, please!

How awesome that you got to meet her! I, too, loved her on Trading Spaces. If I recall correctly, she never wore shoes which to me, made her stand out even more.

Love her rugs and I'm quite sure she'll do well with them.

Thanks for sharing the pics.

Roger - One of the best things about the Conference was hanging out with BU-FU!

Joanna - Genevieve seems to be a very beautiful person, inside and out!  She really could be a model, she's so pretty.

Kim - We were so not expecting to see celebrity designers, so this was a very nice bonus.  I agree, and especially love the orange "Arabesque".  Check out Capel Rugs!

Valerie - Ha ha!  I hope a little bit of her greatness rubbed off on me!

Kathy - You're right - she never wore shoes on Trading Spaces!  I was reading in her bio that she didn't want her good shoes ruined, so opted for no shoes!

Kathy - So glad you checked back.  I really have enjoyed all Genevieve's shows - I really like her approach and think she's enormously talented - and nice, too!

Dear Anna - Her rugs are really stunning - a great combo of colour and pattern, but in a relaxed way.  Ha ha - glad I was able to share some photos - it's almost like being there, no?
