Found founder Ruth Davis knows how to throw a party. A chic crowd of more than 150 designers and design aficionados turned out to the one-of-a-kind store to fête Houston blogger-turned-designer Paloma Contreras.

The occasion? Contreras’s first book Dream Design Live was published by Abrams three days ago, and this celebration kicked off her national book tour. The impressive tour features 16 stops spanning from New York to L.A., and from High Point to Texas Design Week in Dallas.

Contreras has appeared on the cover of Domino, was named a House Beautiful Next Wave designer, and most recently landed a spot on the coveted Elle Decor A-List. Dream Design Live is equal parts fascinating personal story and Design 101, serving as a practical guide to Contreras’ design process, showcasing beautiful photos of her own home and a number of her design projects.

In honor of Paloma, fresh paloma cocktails were served, along with rosé and light bites from Canopy. Guests snapped up copies of Contreras’s book for her to inscribe, and ogled Found’s new fall arrivals.
