IDS | Toronto Interior Design Show

So I've kept you all in suspense for long enough!

This past weekend I ventured with a girlfriend of mine (who is also an interior decorator), to the Interior Design show at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

I use to go a lot in college but I haven't been in a while.  So I was more than happy to go again. I'm always excited to learn about new and exciting companies, the ins and outs for the trade world and new & upcoming things. It's a great way to expand my knowledge as well as a great networking tool or even just to meet people in my industry.

There's so much variety and so many exhibitors, it's 4 days packed full of interior design/décor fun! Any-who time to get back on topic, I of course took my camera because you never know what you'll see. If you were following along with me on instagram you would've had a sneak peek!

This post is going to be majority of pictures, with a little bit of describing so sit back and enjoy. Here we go;

I loved this display by Camilla House. Bold and nature inspired with a little classic sophistication.

Some locally designed unique wooden stools.

A beautiful designed room by an interior design student. Masculinity at it's finest.

Bold & patterned fabric is huge this season! Some of these are beautiful, my favourite are those white pillows

Slik was a great booth, such innovative bathroom design. I love standing free tubs and this one was a full iron tub. Amazing

Urban barn has some amazing set ups. That Dining room though!

The kid in me was a happy camper. Ceasar stone created a swing booth, the seats are made of countertop material!

Guess who I saw?!

That's right! Sarah Richardson's right hand man. Tommy Smythe! This was the highlight of my day, I got so excited. I unfortunately did not talk to him or get an autograph, but I did (most obviously to) sneak this picture.

One of my favourite booths. That is Graffiti art lighting, so cool! They also had pretty awesome outlet designs as well. One that pops in & out of the wall...wha!!!??

I love this "country" inspired plate wall. Such a great idea to display your most precious or just add some interest.

Vintage styled fridges anyone?


Some amazing kitchens done by different designers, using IKEA kitchens.

Well folks, there we have it.

I had a great time and next year I think I'm going to go all weekend! There's so much to look at, and to do (seminars & speakers) that it's hard to fit it in one day. Can't wait for the next year!

Hope you enjoyed the pictures and maybe even got some inspiration.

Have you gone to any shows or exhibitions you love lately?
