The next day [Tuesday, October 16], will feature native Dallasite/relocated Atlantan Danielle Rollins, who has made a reputation for “her fearless take on color and blending patterns to create comfortable yet elegant spaces for today’s modern lifestyles and living.”
According to Peggy, “Danielle’s unique brand of stylish and gracious entertaining embodies the spirit of our theme — ‘A Celebration of Southern Style.’ From her work as an interior designer, clothing designer and author, to her entertaining expertise, she sets the standard for glamorous living.”
Having been featured in Town And Country, Southern Living, The New York Times, D Magazine and countless “influential digital platforms, lifestyle influencer/author Danielle said, “I’m thrilled to be returning to my hometown to celebrate such an inspiring and incredibly beautiful event. I look forward to talking about all things entertaining and share some sneaks peeks on my new book, as well as debuting my capsule clothing collection [Danielle Rollins Style] in Dallas.”
