After 14 hours of traveling, Steve and I arrived in Venice this afternoon. We were exhausted and decided to pay the extra euros to hire a water taxi to our hotel.
I think the bags under my eyes are bigger than my actual luggage!
A few images of our trip into Venice...
We passed the spectacular Doges Palace on our way.
Rita showed us one of the custom shades that she is making. I told her that I loved the ruffle on the top. She thought I was crazy and explained that the ruffle was not part of the design! I'm such a crazy American!
We were running late, so Steve and I said a quick good bye, and ran off to meet some of the other designers at a dinner planned by Kathryn Ireland. A friend of hers was gracious enough to open up her home to us.
It's 1:00 am here in Italy, so I'm off to try to get some sleep before the Design Leadership Summit starts tomorrow.
Have a wonderful weekend.
