Ronda may be best known for her extremely popular blog ALL THE BEST | A PASSPORT TO STYLISH LIVING.  The blog gives an up-to-date survey of the happenings in design, fashion, food, and travel, providing an invaluable lifestyle guide to her followers world-wide. 
Drawing on her experiences while living in Scotland, Ronda has introduced an exceptional line of fabrics marketed to the interior design trade as Ronda Carman Fine Fabrics.  Collections include inspirations from men's suiting and a contemporary twist on traditional plaids, plus the most luxurious leathers in a wide range of colors. 

Ronda has also reached a wide audience of appreciative readers with her book DESIGNERS AT HOME: PERSONAL REFLECTIONS ON STYLISH LIVING.  The book profiles fifty contemporary interior designers including Bunny Williams, Barry Dixon, and Charlotte Moss, and gives a tour of their own homes, illustrating their design philosophies with over 300 color photos.  Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event with all the proceeds benefiting Decorative Arts Trust.  There will be a book-signing and a chance to personally meet and have a few words with Ronda as well.

For more information on the event, see the Calendar of Events on the website of Decorative Arts Trust here.
