Design Camp is an immersive four-day retreat created specifically for the diverse interior design community. Founders Anastasia Casey and Lindsey Borchard, along with their respective teams, offer inspiration, insight, and empowerment through strategic business development discussions and guided implementation. As we learn more, Design Camp continues to evolve.

 

This Spring, we're brining in industry experts--expanding on topics we've never covered before. In addition to our star studded designer keynotes, we're welcoming luxury home builders, attorneys, artisans, and product designers to grow the curriculum. As the only event we'll host in 2024, consider this Design Camp 2.0.

 

Every detail of our luxury event is intentional, from the intimate grouping of campers to the inspired setting designed by Kelly Wearstler. Working sessions are punctuated by shared meals, cocktail hours, and keynotes from some of the industry's most influential voices. Our mission is for you to leave Camp with an actionable plan for creating a design business that is more profitable, enjoyable, and authentic to you—with a network of likeminded friends to support you along the way, forever after.

An intrinsic love of vintage furniture and materials that feature raw and natural textures balance our appreciation of color and pattern to create spaces that feel practical and effortless.

Design Camp has been carefully designed to have tangible, actionable takeaways, time to implement what you've learned, and a casual, camp-like experience in a setting where you can relax and truly connect with other business women. It's time to elevate your business, level up your systems and operations, and cultivate meaningful friendships with women that uplift and support you.

"Anastasia, Lindsey and each of your teams were so kind, helpful and shared so much knowledge and I truly couldn't have imagined how great the camp would be. It exceeded all my expectations and I came home with so much information and actionable next steps for my business."
