It’s almost here…With LEGENDS (May 9-11) fast approaching…we wanted to introduce you to our Ambassadors (some returning and some new) to hear what they’re looking forward to this year, some of their favorite LCDQ spots, and get a sneak peek into their new projects.

Danielle Rollins


With a gracious, glamorous yet approachable flair, Danielle is an authority on entertaining and decorating with elan. She even wrote the book on it (Soirée Entertaining with Style). Heading to L.A. from her base in Atlanta, Danielle is thrilled to connect with her design tribe. “When we join forces to create this type of network to support each other, we all benefit from having a stronger community,” she says. “I think that is the real beauty of LEGENDS.”

She will make time for her favorite spots in LCDQ between the parties and panels. “Some of my favorites are Hollyhock, Mecox Gardens, Harbinger and Hollywood at Home, says Rollins. “As a southerner, I find inspiration seeing a little west coast spin and end up finding a thing (or twenty) I can’t live without.”

In addition to working with clients that range from a female tech executive to a bachelor who craves a Santa Barbara vibe, Rollins is working on a line of wallpaper and fabrics, and a small collection of dresses. All will be enriched by what she sees this year. “I know I’ll find some unique pieces to add to clients’ spaces as well as creative ways to use products I can translate to my work,” she says. “It’s a treasure trove for finding the special.”

Rollins shares her favorite places to drop by…
