a weekend must: {napa home + garden show}

yeah! the 18th annual napa home + garden show starts this friday, may 16th.

the show features over 600 exhibits with the latest ideas + technology in home improvement, remodeling, gardening, landscaping + outdoor living.

for anyone who is currently updating their home or who wants to get ideas for a future project this show truly has a wealth of information. now, i realize that most all information is easily accessible online, however when it comes to purchasing products for your home (which usually also come with a super large price tag), i feel it is so important to be able to see + play with the products you are considering to buy...+ in my opinion it is equally important to take any opportunity to meet + talk with the vendors face to face. you really can get a good sense of their enthusiasm with regards to their products + hopefully figure out whether or not you want to work with them. speaking from past experiences...having a positive working relationship with the company that is riping out your windows, flooring, etc is a must!

last year i was fortunate enough to have found window world - the window company who i ultimately hired to upgrade my house with energy efficient windows. they are the best! not only were their windows amazing + prices the lowest offered, their customer service rocks. i would actually have paid a little more for their windows just to deal with contractors like these. {side note: i did not get a discount to mention them...even my friend/client used + loved them too} please go + say hi.

oh + who doesn't love free products?! remember bring an extra bag for all the little goodies. + lastly, i also recommend that you bring a list of measurements for whatever it is you are upgrading. i will come in handy.
