Many of you found DESSO’s recent design Trend Report out of our Copenhagen headquarters very creative and inspiring. However, for  many who requested a file of the report during presentations, the file is too big and bounced back from your server. DESSO is also planning to issue new reports to the trade semi-annually (gotta love the Dutch!), so to make it available and easy to keep up with all the latest TRENDS, I set up a “DROP BOX” where large files can easily be shared and accessed.

I have just loaded the following and will add to it accordingly:

- DESSO Trend Report 2013/2014 and corresponding heavenly textures vol 1 and vol 2

For ease and convenience, I have also added:

- Electric Mirror’s overview catalog, back lit mirror catalog and TV mirror catalog 

For access to my drop box just click on: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/flwcuzdilcbm9q4/kOpSrzyo87

I can also set up direct ”sharing”,  so we can send large project designs files back and forth with ease, during specific projects as well.

Kuddo’s to the team at Degen and Degen, Remington Hotels, and DESSO Carpet for this beautiful Axminster Installation at Seattle Marriott Waterfront. An amazing feat, and wonderful example of creative design and planning to space!

When inspirational design and expert planning come together – it’s magic! (with a pinch of technology!)

Thank you Degen and Degen. It’s always a pleasure to work with your exceptional team!

Let DESSO’s expert design and planning team help make the most of your design inspiration and imagination, with your next custom carpet space. And… our same expert Axminster team also designs and plans custom Chrome Jet printed carpet as well, so be sure and include DESSO in all your custom carpet opportunities.

It’s never too early to talk about initial design, and we can always jump in anywhere along the way to discuss concept, inspiration and the space. I am happy to set up a “Go To” meeting to discuss your custom carpet ideas with DESSO’s design and planning team, no matter where you are in the process.

Many of you have been asking me for the healthy recipes I’ve been making for lunch presentations, so here they are!

BRAIN HEALTHY * Heart healthy * Gluten Free * Dairy Free * Guilt Free

Wilted Greens with Avocado

image

1 bag Trader Joes Cruciferous Crunch Collection (Kale, Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli, cabbage)

1 tbs Coconut or Avocado oil  (for cooking)

Avocado

Prosciutto, 2 slices

½ lemon and drizzle of olive oil

Bring pan to medium temp and add cooking oil. Lay down both slices of prosciutto and cook both sides until crispy, then remove from pan and rest on paper towel. Add bag of greens into pan and let sear for about a minute without stirring in the cooking oil from the prosciutto. Toss and cover for another minute until just wilted. Remove from heat and finish with a squeeze of lemon, pepper, and light drizzle of olive oil. Top with avocado and broken up prosciutto slices right before serving at room temp.

Quinoa salad on a bed of Arugula

image

1 bag Quinoa Duo, vegetable melange (squash, zucchini, herbs) from the freezer section at Trader Joes.

Handful Italian Parsley

Handful green onion

½ lemon and drizzle of olive oil (optional - splash of Pasta and Company basic herb dressing)

Fresh Arugula (spinach also good substitute)

Defrost Quinoa blend and add chopped parsley and green onion and toss with lemon and olive oil to taste. Toss arugula with sea salt, pepper and lemon lightly. Spread out in serving bowl to make a nest, and spoon quinoa salad into the center. Serve with sheep milk feta and sliced chicken breast on the side

Bon Appetit!
