I have used my profile here at Ava Living to secure a new project in
another part of the country - like a digital portfolio. Thanks so much for that!
By the way, where did the name "Ava Living" come from? Clients have asked me ...”
We appreciate your
feedback about our product blogs. Your website is fantastic...it
carries all of the elements that create a great website - not only is
it gorgeous but easy to navigate, meet great designers and suppliers and also read about new and interesting products.
Looking forward to working together in the future.
Thank you so much for your hard work on Ava, and i am very appreciative of your kind comments on our cooperation.
You have a great mind for "conducting business around the World"".
As we all know, a very terrible economic crisis is hitting the world,
so it is time for us to find a new solution to save ourselves. The
global business through Ava will help more and more designers to expand
theirs business to the world.
My best wishes to you too.”
am delighted to have found Avaliving.com! As a designer it is an easy
to use site to share my portfolio, my inspiration, and my ideas both
with colleagues and clients. It is a treat to see fellow designers so
well showcased and be able to share design advice, trends, and the
latest in techniques and product. This network is an exciting and
essential addition to the global view of interior design. It is The Place for design professionals, design students, fans and clients! David Bassett-Parkins and his team are bringing us into the 21st century with the tools for now and tomorrow.”

I just heard your webinar moments ago,
It’s very interesting stuff from Gail Doby and yourself on how to improve our commercial channels and approach.
the type and quality of communication you have developed between client
/ designer / fans through Ava Living is resourceful and motivating.
Thank you for this great effort,”
heard about your site through the Interior Design Summit, and decided
to start a Social Network account. Your talk motivated me!
Many thanks for your kind message. I am thrilled to be part of Ava,
which I found out right when I was losing hope of finding such kind of
have already passed onto my friend Tina Langton Brown the AvaLiving
website address, she is also an interior designer, like me, based in
the North west of England, I hope she too will join soon.
Many thanks for setting up this awesome and much needed online organisation!
With best wishes,”

for your invitation to join in your Ava Living. You are doing a great
service to the profession, the trade and the general public with your
neatly designed and informative website. I wish you all the best in
making a success of your website. Mind you I know the efforts involved.
comments: I think you should allow for longer text for the pictures.
The ones I wrote pertaining to particular pictures came out incomplete
and incomprehensible. Can you please do something about this?
I noticed your birth year is not published so I became conscious of my
age and wanted to erase the my birth year as well but could not. That’s unfair! hehehe
Wishing your continued success,”
I have been part of your Ava Living community for the whole year 2008.
Thanks to all your work I have had a great opportunity to broaden my
visibility, to learn from so many designers and design oriented people
and for the great source of new businesses Avaliving can bring.
had participated to your first Design Summit which I found it so much
interested and filled with excellent information. At times I found
extravagant new ways of marketing an intangible product such as design.
Love extravagance! As a result of the Design Summit, I am now working
more hours to change a few things in my practice. I want to be able to
implement everything I learned and be ready to offer a new face to my
clients in the new year.
Thanks to all of you in contributing to my success and thanks to all of you for the great site of Avaliving.”
for only 18 years and lot more to come
I welcome the change !!!... AVA is getting bigger and better.
a globalized world AVA can display the particular design of all parts
of the planet. In AVA I can share thoughts, ideas, projects, dreams and
concretions ... or simply spend a pleasant moment seeing magnificent
proposals created by other members of AVA.
This year, I used AVA to disseminate my work. It was wonderful to be able to do my first AVA vision! AVA space is very dynamic and creates constant exchange. For me it is an honor to be here among so many talented work.
AVA thanks, thanks David”

“Wow David thanks for the welcome,
have been an artist most my life and mainly do decorative painting from
trompe l'oeil to Italian plasters to what ever needs to be
accomplished. I am extremely passionate for what I do and am always
reaching for the clients that really can appreciate what I do. Here in
Naples its really tough to make contact with the top designers when I
am in the field trying to make the bills. My work is very expensive and
with the right people in my corner I can create the most unique
finishes as long as I have the freedom to do so. I have done all the
advertising that is out there from full page magazine adds to direct
mailing and have spent tens of thousands on this trying to get to the
right clientele to no avail. I have finishes that are very expensive
and the advertising that I was doing was putting me in front of clients
that ,.....well to be frank.....just couldn’t afford it. I don’t know who sent me this invite for your group and I wish I did. What
better way to get advice than from the very type of people that I have
been trying to reach! Being that I am in the field it seems to me the
only time that I really have to network is right here from my laptop
and most times I am on this thing till the wee hours of the morning lol
a look at my site to get an idea of what I do and any suggestions would
be appreciated. I look forward to participating on this forum. I have
been in the painting business for 30 years and have a ton of knowledge
Thanks again for the welcome I was truly surprised”
