About this time of year, when the holiday decorations are put away and winter has settled in, I find myself looking around for inspiration. I’m sure you’re exhausted like I am after the hustle and bustle and would love a change of scenery. So, I’m going to check out the Interior Design Show (IDS12) this week in Toronto (January 26 to 29). It’s Canada’s largest contemporary design fair!
It’s the 14th year ( Interior Design Show & Party Video Clip ) for this show and it’s open to the public on the weekend. Here you’ll find some of the most inspirational ideas to come out of the design industry that may leave you wanting to freshen up a bit!
Check back later on this week as I’ll be posting up some pics of the trends in fun & functional design for family areas and pieces to add to your home sanctuary!
Aside from the show, tickets are available for the ONEXONE Foundation CHERISH Auction & Opening Night Gala Party on Thursday, January 26. The who’s who of the Toronto’s culturati will be there as well as design industry peeps. THE PARTY will kick off the Design Show and include a unique and playful auction.
The CHERISH Auction & Exhibit invites design lovers to place their bid on dog-shaped Julian children’s chairs by Italian manufacturer MAGIS. Each re-imagined by one of Canada’s top fashion, graphic and interior design personalities and celebrities. Some of the participating personalities include Yabu Pushelberg, Bruce Mau Design, Debbie Travis, Joe Mimram, Philip Sparks, Michelle Mawby, Arthur Mendonca and more! Donna Karan will also design a specially made chair to add to the auction block.
I can’t wait to be inspired at this show! Maybe I’ll bid on the one of the chairs!

What are you looking to change in your home?
After updating our two bathrooms, our kitchen is next. I’ve been inspired by the contemporary Canadiana look of The Ritz-Carleton Hotel in Toronto. So, my design radar is on!
Watch out honey!
