nursery decorator and kids' product designer, I have the pleasure of meeting some of the world's most inspirational and talented women in the children's industry. Not only do I exhibit my Sherri Blum Designs products beside them at industry trade shows such as the upcoming ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas or the New York International Gift Fair, but I also source their products to my interior design clients through Jack and Jill Interiors and now offer her beautiful products in my own boutique, Jack and Jill Boutique. While I've met many good people during my ten years in the industry, there are a handful who have stood out among the crowd, not only as fantastic designers, but as women of integrity and substance.These women have not only put out a beautiful product of top-notch quality, but they've found a way to keep themselves firmly grounded in their values and have always put their families first even in the midst of their "fame and good fortune". I'll be introducing you to each of my favorites over the next few months in candid interviews that will hopefully give you some insights into the creative minds of these wonderful designers!
My first interview is with Katy Mimari of Caden Lane. I met Katy in 2008 at the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas. I had always admired her stunning bedding collection, and about two seconds into my first conversation with her, I knew that the woman behind the company was extraordinary, too. You'll have to visit Home Workshop to read the entire interview. Enjoy!
