It's official Traci Zeller and I have opened our joint studio which we refer to as Studio 202.  
   Our design collaboration last year on the Gentleman's dressing room in Traditional Home show house "Adamsleigh" was responsible for the birth of a design friendship which has resulted in sharing joint studio space.  We love our new studio and hope you will come see us when you are in our area.  Give us a call and come by.  We welcome designers and consumers alike.  Our studio offers beautiful furniture, fabrics, wallpaper, lighting and original art from North Carolina, South Carolina, Colorado, Seattle, and Virgina artists.  We will be spotlighting the artist weekly.  

We had so much fun at our Grand Opening on Sept 10th.  Here are some photos from that night.

Our designers friends, Jason Oliver Nixon and John Loeke of Madcap Cottage, came for our Grand Opening!  We were thrilled that Cathy Austin of Bespoke Banter, Holly Hollingsworth Phillips of The English Room,  Randolph James of Magnolia Emporium,  Cheryl Luckett of Dwell with Cheryl
to name a few.  Thank you all for taking time to come out and celebrate with us!

Traci and I were thrilled to have Leslie Newby at our Grand Opening.  Leslie is President at WorkTheBrand, a division of Brand Communications,Inc and has become a dear friend.  She is an amazing person and represents many well known brands such as Caracole which happens to be a favorite line of Studio 202.  Caracole was so kind to supply this beautiful Mood Ring Mirror to give away in honor of our Grand Opening.  We have so many things to giveaway.  

Traci and I had planned to have the drawing at our Grand Opening, but everyone was having so much fun it didn't seem right to stop the fun for business.   The next day we had people who couldn't come yet, donated money to our Ronald McDonald donations page.  We decided everyone who donates or attended the Grand Opening should be included in the drawing.  

The purpose and goal of our Grand Opening was to raise money for Ronald McDonald.

Guess what!  We decided to extend the Giveaways to allow all of you who couldn't come to get involved.  Keep reading to find out what we are giving away and how you can enter to win!

Here is a peek at a few of the items we are giving away.  She the Susan Skelley Art on the Black stool?  Yes that is a giveaway too!!!!!  Sorry I don't have an individual picture of this piece to show but it is fabulous!  I'm out of town and not in the studio or I would shoot a pic.  I'll do it when I return tomorrow and post on instagram
