The Start of the Line for DesignVine


Welcome to post #1 of DesignVine, a connecting point for people who want practical, inspirational information about products for home and garden, building materials, as well as remodeling and design trends.

I’m Irene Williams.  For 12  years, I’ve been involved in the home products and building materials industries as a PR and marketing professional.  For 2 years, I’ve also been a home and garden columnist and design blogger.  And before I ever earned a penny in these categories, I spent many, many pennies on them—ravenously purchasing shelter publications, trying out products, investing in furnishings, appliances and décor.

With my 360° view, I’ve seen a real need for all us consumers (yes, we’re all consumers!) to not only have access to undiluted, honest information about products and trends but to have a forum that lets us share our own experiences.

DesignVine is that forum.

Here, we’re going to present news and views and then open it up to YOU to tell us the truth.  What products are great?  What trends need to end?  No PR spin.  No advertising angles.  No sponsored praise.

Sure, we’ll show lots of pretty pictures.  We’ll hear from manufacturers and designers.  And we’re gonna dream and scheme.  Yet most importantly, we’re all gonna have a voice on the Vine, to seek-share-give-receive inspirations and information.

      Gail!
      I’ve heard such great things about you and am honored you’ve dropped by. I’ve been in the blogosphere for a while, but this corner of it is so fun and more well-appointed than some of those other virtual haunts. I’m looking forward to watching-learning-sharing-connecting with you!
      Thanks again for visiting!
      –Irene
