Spring 2024

We welcomed our Fall 2023 group to the beautiful MacArthur Place in Sonoma, California – the loveliest setting for connecting with new friends, strategizing with our speakers and celebrating small business ownership. It was our honor to spend the week with top experts soaking in industry knowledge. Our panel included Interior Designers – Katie Monkhouse, Nicole Salceda and Ali Faulkner, Business & Brand Strategists – Renee Bush of Tandem and Melissa Baran of Haven, Stylist – Anika Gawthorne and Interior Photographer – Stephanie Russo. 

Attendees were spoiled by gifts from our contributor family, including a signed copy of Amber Lewis' newly released book, Call It Home, and a copy of Jenni Kayne's Pacific Natural at home, along with trade kits. Additionally, Maison Louis Marie provided their most-loved No.04 Bois de Balincourt candle, JSH Home Essentials crafted charming sample packages of their textiles and wallpapers, and Farrow & Ball included their robust fan decks for our attendees' design libraries.
