A big big thanks to everyone who came and visited me at the National Bank Design Stop at the Interior Design Show this weekend. It was a great pleasure to meet with so many show goers to talk about their renovation and decorating projects. It was also a great to chat with a few design students about career direction and how to get started in this business. It was a great weekend all around. Here are a few things that stood out to me:
This is Avani, a new line of kitchens by Aya Kitchens. 2 most fantastic things about this kitchen: the colour options (matches my pants!) and the counter moves- it shifts to create a larger island, or tucks away completely into the back millwork for more space. Love the sleek European lines and made in Canada quality.
Tony Koukos, photographer and down right lovely person, showcased his wall coverings, rugs, and my new obsession- table tops. I have plans for a tabletop in my house in the near future.
In the VIP lounge Roche Bobois provided the furnishings. Love this rug and sofa colour combination.
Korhani, a rug line I have used in many of my television and client projects, installed this very creative, slightly psychedelic, fun installation where their rugs were fashioned into outfits on mannequins. This company has worked hard to position itself as a fashion forward rug maker- and installations like this certainly show its’ prowess.
For those of you that attended IDS14, what were your highlights from this design filled show?
