Despite my crazy busy life (hence the lack of blog posts), I managed to squeeze in an evening of decor goodness by attending the Interior Design Show West Opening night party. Not only was it a feast for the eyes, but I was able to hang out with blogging besties! And the highlight...was meeting Canadian design guru, Brian Gluckstein!

Here are a few iPhone photos I snapped of a few favourite things that caught my eye.
By far my favourite booth was the Montauk Sofa booth.
LOVED the rug and the large oversized mural.
I noticed a reoccurring theme of over-sized wall murals. For me it was a throwback to my 70's upbringing where a large forest wall mural was the decor du jour.
And if I had $1300 just kicking around, this throw would of come home with me!
My other favourite exhibits were the GE Monogram Dinner by Design tables. This one was designed by Kelly Deck.
An ethereal dining scene designed by Sophie Burke.
For the geography lovers, isn't this carved-wood table fabulous? Shaped like BC!
These felt bowls were a hit with a few bloggers/photographers among us, we lost them at this table for quite some time. Ehem...you know you who are!
I personally would of taken this ceramic cup and coffee filter set home.
To. die. for.
But my klutzy self held back. It would probably last a day at my house and then meet it's demise on my tiled kitchen floor.
Loved the juxtaposition of the live edged wood mixed with the smooth modern lucite base.
It was an enjoyable evening out. Wish I had time to go back to hear all the amazing line-up of speakers.
There is always next year.
