IDS16 Preview ~ Take 2

Hello Friday! What a fun evening at The Party, and I was simply in heaven taking sneak peeks of the newest in home trends + decors with a glass of bubbles in hand.  Today marks the official opening of 3-day inspiration packed weekend in Toronto and if you are looking for the latest from Canada's next great design talents, Studio North and Prototype is your stop.

Here are some of my favorites:

Speaking about embracing the next wave of talents, EQ3 has teamed up with ten Canadian designers including Zoe Mowat, MSDS Studio, Anthony Frank Keeler, Kenneth Lavalle, and Thom Fougere Studio, to build a truly unique and diverse collection, Assembly, and is set to unveil at IDS Toronto.  I love that desk by Zoe!!

Ever since Chris and I purchased our next pre-construction condo, I have been brainstorming on how to maximize function, storage, and style in my next kitchen.  I want the island to do it all (seating, storage, microwave, wine fridge ... you got the picture) and I am looking forward to be inspired by AyA Kitchens and Baths this weekend! Partnered with Toronto's internationally renowned interior design company, Burdifilek, this contemporary culinary sensation truly has it all with 10 foot wall of cabinetry in matte smokey grey, a sculptural island made of honed marble, and open shelvings wall for a gallery-like vignette, I simply can't wait to explore this creation in person!

Just as we focus on making our home a better place for our family, many children in Canada are living in unstable or inadequate homes and they need our help.  That is exactly why Habitat for Humanity has partnered with IDS Toronto and Mega Bloks to build a life-sized home to raise awareness to this urgent need.  Brick by brick, your donation will contribute to a solid foundation for kids to grow and embark a brighter future.

Last but not least, we also have our winner for a pair of tickets to the IDS Toronto this weekend! Congrats Gord (relentless_globetrotter)! Please email me with your contact information and we will set you up for an inspiring day at #IDS16.

  1. So many things I enjoy reading your post. Love the anaglyph mirror for instance. Also it is a good job what Habitat for Humanity is trying to do.
