The butterflies in my stomach were there all right. Not only because I had to fly, but because I knew the next few days spent in Toronto for the Interior Design Show would be crammed full of exciting events and meetings with people who I admire and adore.
It began with a media preview of the show where we toured the Metro Toronto Convention Center all sporting our yellow hard hats since some construction was still taking place. I was finally able to meet so many fellow bloggers who are as lovely in person as they are in their posts and tweets. This is where I realised that, yes I was there to submerge myself in design, but what was even more important were some truly special relationships that were being founded on this trip.
Being at breakfast, lunch, dinner and of course walking the aisles of IDS with these like-minded design lovers was truly an experience I will cherish and never forget.
I’m going to leave it at that and share with you the moments captured in these photos.
There wasn’t a moment in time, a conversation with friends, or an inch of space at IDS that wasn’t inspiring to me.
