Last night we attended the Portman White Party at the AmericasMart. What a blast honoring our designer friends – Kerry Howard, Michel Boyd, Niki Papadopoulos and Brian Patrick Flynn! The party was set among the Portman White Vignette Gallery in celebration of AmericasMart’s Chairman and Founder, famed architect and developer John C. Portman, Jr.. Named in honor of the chairman’s signature Sherwin-Williams paint color, the gallery is a showcase for seven top designers, featuring products found throughout AmericasMart.
Our good friend Kerry Howard knocked it out of the park as usual with his space inspired by the Alhambra, a palace and fortress located in Granada, Spain. (P.S. Those gorgeous apples are from Pottery Pots in Bldg. 2).
The love continues for our friend Michel Boyd who’s breath taking vignette was inspired by Bergdorf’s windows and Dior runway shows.
Niki Papadopoulos always impresses me. Her vignette was in honor of Mr. Portman whose architectural work has inspired her since the 1980’s. (P.S. Those gorgeous leather Bertha chairs are from NOIR and the gold Molecule table is from Worlds Away).
Brian Patrick Flynn used a backdrop of Portman White to celebrate a spectrum of intense colors.
And that’s an (all white) wrap!! Thanks to our colleagues and friends for continuing to inspire us and to AmericasMart for being such a valuable resource.
NOTE: John C. Portman Jr.’s signature paint color, SW-PW240 (a hue often employed in his vast body of work), is available by request at all Sherwin-Williams stores.
