2 awards won by GOGO design group

GOGO design group Receives 2 Prestigious Awards

Living an authentic life, keeping it real and fostering human connection and a sense of design well-being is my MO. So it makes sense that a huge part of WHY at GOGO design group is to improve people’s lives by empowering them to discover what nourishes their soul and make them feel good.

With that said, I am beyond words honored and humbled to be recognized by our luxury industry’s finest membership community, PowerHouse SMART®. We were recently informed GOGO design group has won first place in PowerHouse SMART’s industry Stellar Success Story Awards. Our entry, GOGO Living, (formerly Luxe for Less), was selected by the judges in the category, Results Driven Online Marketing Campaign. In addition, I am thrilled to have received second place in the category, Successful Sales & Marketing Event, for our entry, “Educate before you Renovate, or Build New, my consumer seminar series. According to PHS, the competition was fierce and the judging panel had several outstanding entries to judge. I know I am in good company among my peers, who are all Stellar Marketers.

Presenting Winning Entries at PowerHouse SMART’s Industry Stellar Success Story Awards Ceremony

I encourage my clients to embark on their own self-discovery journey when we begin work together, and I can say that producing my GOGO Living video series has been an incredibly enlightening and inspiring journey for me. Writing and creating videos is a wonderful, creative outlet which brings me tremendous joy, while allowing me to connect to my client and trade audiences, of course until we can meet face to face. GOGO Living has become my voice in sharing my passionate WHY!

GOGO design group is honored to be selected among 28 photos and 18 designers in their latest article.

Selected by HGTV, WOW!

What perfect timing with Fall right around the corner, people’s fancies are turning to warmth and comfort. This applies especially to cozy interior design styles in the bedroom. Maybe it’s as simple as putting away the Summer bedding and opting for something a little more warm and fuzzy. Over at HGTV, they too, are pulling out the woolies and have published a great article titled 28 Budget-Friendly Ideas for a Cozy Bedroom.  Authors Keri Sanders and Farima Alavi of HGTV beautifully discuss the aspects of Interior Design that can make or break the feeling of a room. Tips about using dark hues, layering rugs and adding bedding and blankets in different textures are discussed among many others.

Below is a snippet of their article that features an image from one of my recent projects:
