Thursday I went on the Newport Harbor Home Tour. It is an annual fund raiser for the local high school. There were six homes to tour through, lunch and a reception at Barclay Butera's Interior Showroom afterwards where everyone chats over a glass of wine and refreshments about what inspired them.
Many of the local designers, architects, florists, landscape architects and local home stores participate with beautiful tablescapes and floral arrangements of the latest design and style in architecture and interior design.
In the last home we toured, upstairs in the guest bedroom in a very tastefully done home by Julie Hovanian of Hovie Interiors, were two of my paintings hanging on the walls. I was very excited to see them hanging there and participating in the lives of those who live there.
