    exhibit by Suite 22 Interiors at IDS 10
    “For its 13th year, the IDS team has curated an exceptional roster of trail blazers from across Canada and around the globe. IDS11 is about innovation and challenge. We‘ve traveled from Miami to Milan to bring 13 of the world’s most acclaimed designers and architects to our show stage. Right here in Canada we’ve asked over 35 of our design heroes to work with materials in new contexts and to look at iconic pieces with a fresh perspective”– IDS

    Hope to see you there!
    peace, love and health

    IDS Opening Party

    Yes – Read that, meditate and act upon it. Your surroundings affect you wayyyyyy more than you realize.
    The crystal exhibits were simply breath taking! I want to be surrounds by sparkly things my entire life and every single minute of it. The CRYSTALLIZED with Swarovski elements is incredible and if you need a reason to go to IDS09. This is it.
    This was my all time favourite thing at IDS09 this year. Maybe it reminds me of the jellyfish in the movie 7 Pounds, except not deadly. I want to buy this for my sister when she graduates from Law School. You can find them at BlownGlass.ca
    Hats and head accessories are a big thing this year, this is how you do it right @:D
    Very cool – I think this is done by DaisyCake architectural chaining
    Fabulous tartan dress! Creativity + beautiful = winning combo!

    This promo is funny – imagine the job description: soap each other! ha ha ha

    I had to stop these ladies to snap their photo! Hair accessory, check!

    Bird in a cage!

    It’s Feb! This is the shortest month of the year so let’s make it jam packed with fun. I am going to be attending the Trade preview today at Interior Design Show aka IDS09. Click the link on the right to see what it’s all about. One of my favorite all time inspirations is industrial designer, author and Canadian Karim Rashid. You might have heard his name from Umbra, his book Design Your SELF, and other engagements. The theme this year is Find Your Inspiration. Running from Feb 5-8 at the Direct Energy Centre on the CNE grounds, you should check it out. I am looking forward to the Crystal Clear, Studio North and Collaborations exhibits. Glittering prototypes with Swarovski crystal are so up my alley! On the 8th, they have a ‘GET GLAM’ special about how to glam up your living area. The panel talk and guest speakers are presenting 20 slides in 20 seconds. This is what life is about.

    Communication and how blogs steer design trends is a big topic this year. It’s all in one place, stay fresh, and inspire yourself. Bath trends, Fashion colors, lighting techniques, global trends, designs and color research, sustainability vs luxury – so excited!
