Walking in the dusk of SoHo NYC to Calypso Home St. Barth!

Walking in the dusk of SoHo NYC heading to champagne party hosted by Calypso St. Barth Home and the moment of energy first night was in pure heaven with Bloggers of Blog Tour NYC. We were learning about each other from all walks of life.  I was intrigued with store fronts here and there. Bright lights and dim lights appear every so often as many businesses were shutting down for the evening. SoHo seems to me as evening approaches the neighborhood closes down and quite moments are expected in the area not wanting visitors for the evenings.

It was little chilling but felt great our first night together.  The vibe of intimacy walking into the neighborhood store where staff were waiting with open arms and ready to serve champagne. The store layout was so easy on my eyes as I was able to enjoy the unique pieces displayed throughout the store. One of the staff members and I began to chat.  She mentioned she was from Atlanta, Georgia and we connected very quickly. I grew up in Mississippi.  Deep South folks have culture bonds no other way to explain as we submerged into our conversation about family, school, and where each of us are now.  She is a Ole Miss graduate from Oxford, Mississippi.

The evening went by so quickly  with great laughter and we had to depart for our next stop at a restaurant.  Thank you to Calypso St Barth Home for having us.

Jeffrey Johnson from Jeffrey Design, LLC, Vickie Bolick from Bolick Interiors and the well-read The Ace of Space blog and Allison Habermehl from hd Style Studio share  their eco-friendly tips.

“I would recommend recycling, organic products and natural fibers – I use a lot of natural products because I like to bring the outside in,” states Bolick.1EarthDayLogo copy

“For me, Earth Day is  about saving power,” states Johnson. “I would use insulation for switch plate covers that go behind it which is another way of saving energy.”

The three designers also give excellent tips on composting that everyone is going to want to know! To view the entire video, visit: http://youtu.be/TdQkxDmVgFc
