Welcome to Pinkeggshell's Month Long Celebration of Black Interior Designers

African American Top 20 Website

In May we will celebrate the 4th installment of the African American Top 20 Interior Designers.  For two days in May, the world will be able to interact with some of the best black designers in the business.

The celebration will start with an opening reception at a gallery in downtown Atlanta and end with a Panel discussion/meet and greet at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (ADAC).

With the panel discussion, our goal is to bring you an intimate discussion about career success, building a top-notch client roster, and what it takes to rise to the top in this highly competitive field.

Seating is limited, so please RSVP as soon as you can.

In the meantime,  join me here all month as I bring you interviews and insights from designers from the top 20 list.  We're talking more than 'diversity in design'. We're talking style and success and how to sustain a design career in an every changing market.  As Lisa Turner of Interior Obsession states in her interview which will go up on tomorrow, "we've come a long way baby!"

We're working hard to put all the information you need about the Black design community at your fingertips.  Please visit, FOLLOW, LIKE and SHARE the following resources as needed.

Pinkeggshell Google+ Page
I've collected many of my favorite books and best decorating advice on my Pinkeggshell Google+ page.  Consider it your virtual mentor. I've gotten so many emails from young designers that I've decided to establish these resources just for them.  Now they can ask questions and post comments directly to the page and get an answer directly from me.
