Romance… The Ethan Allen Way

I am so not an expert on romance. But talk to me about Ethan Allen’s Romance, and that’s a different matter altogether. 🙂

I did a quick impromptu interview with Ms. Sunly Coo during our recent Ethan Allen Timeless event for her Business Mirror feature on Ethan Allen’s Romance Signature Lifestyle, and I thought it would be nice to share it with you here.

It seems I actually managed to make sense. Haha 🙂

Long Overdue Update: The One Ethan Allen Challenge Winner

It’s crazy how I never got around to posting about the outcome of The One Ethan Allen Challenge – especially since Frances Amper Sales won!! 🙂 I don’t really have much to say about it now after so many months, but I happened to take a peek at her blog the other day and read all her posts about winning.

It was so great to see how excited she was about joining and to witness her thrill at actually taking the prize! I had the best time helping her out, and I really had a good feeling that she’d emerge on top. And that she did.

Here are some photos from Frances’ blog:

Congratulations again to Frances and her hubby, Vince! I hope you guys continue to enjoy the Jensen headboard with your two adorable little boys!

The One Ethan Allen Challenge

Hello everyone! It is with much excitement that I share with you one of the fun things I’ve had the pleasure of participating in recently – The One Ethan Allen Challenge!

Select bloggers were given the task of choosing one Ethan Allen piece and designing a room/vignette around it. The goal is to prove that all it takes is one beautiful piece to create a beautiful space.

We got to work with Ms. Frances Amper Sales who selected the Jensen headboard. We had a real blast helping her with this project, and I truly believe she deserves to bring home the prize!

Please check out and vote for Frances’ entry, “Life in the Clouds”‘!

I’m telling you, I was so kinikilig when we were putting it all together! Definitely one of the most fun times at work in recent memory.

Thanks so much in advance for all the support! Like, like, like away!
