October 13, 2021 – Autumn is about to become a lot more vibrant and colorful, thanks to The Design Whimsy Virtual Summit: Creating with Color, bringing together 15 designers, artisans and founders of decor and clothing brands for three days of interviews, insights, workshops and classes, October 18 – 20. 

The Design Whimsy Virtual Summit: Creating with Color is a unique experience for lovers of color, decor and design to learn from some of the best in the business. The Summit showcases workshops with talented artisans teaching their craft, including how to paint expressive flowers, create a joyful landscape and design floral arrangements, as well as in-depth discussions with designers who make their own rules and talks with founders who have built their crush-worthy brands with colorful products. Featured presenters include Elyce Arons from Frances Valentine and Katie Kime from her namesake brand as well as top notch designers like Madcap Cottage, Tobi Fairley, and Studio Ten 25 among others. 

“I wanted to create this unique gathering of creatives to help expand our thinking about creativity and how we can use more color in our lives to ultimately bring us all more joy,” says Summit creator Wendy Conklin, founder of artisan chair band, Chair Whimsy.

‘I love how TJ tells a story with local and seasonal blooms,” exclaims Margaret Stokes about featured presenter, florist TJ McGrath. “Absolutely gorgeous!!!”

“WOW! I loved this!”, says Catherine Reynolds about working with chair creative, Wendy Conklin. “I’m not crazy after all; I just did not have the courage to use all I really love together. You’ve given me “permission” to express freely and a vision for beautiful patterned, colorful spaces.”

“I loved every picture! She speaks to me and my style and now I just want to redo a room,“ says Olivia Juenke of Studio Ten 25 designer Abbe Fenimore. “Thanks for the inspiration.”

The Design Whimsy Virtual Summit: Creating with Color runs October 18th through 20th from the comfort of participants’ computers. Admission is free while Early Bird pricing gives full access for only $29.
