The IDS gala started off with one of my all time, world wide favourite things - just standing waiting for me in the media lounge upon check in on Thursday night:
I love me some bubbly...who doesn't? And Veuve is the queen of the bubbles...we made sure to enjoy it!
Here are some of my favourite displays at IDS - enjoy! (The photography / lighting isn't the best...but you'll get to see a bit of what I saw):
IDS 2012 Gala
This tray would be a great DIY, non?
Beautiful wall art
Living Lighting (King St location):
This light fixture was ridiculous - strand upon strand of metal chain, and I loved how they styled the room (give me tulips any day...)
Canadiana at its best (curling rock pillows!) at Identity Apparrel:
Cherish auction in support of ONE X ONE:
Joe Fresh room:
One of my absolute favourite installations -Lissoni Lounge:
Walking through IDS was a lot of fun, getting peeks of design inspiration, and seeing design celebs like Sarah Richardson and Brian Gluckstein! I didn't get a pic of Brian, but here's Sarah in her cute patterned dress:
Even the chairs for the speaker sessions were ultra stylish:
There you have my little IDS 2012 recap - if you liked it you should try your best to attend next year! There really is so much inspiration, and something for everyone.
