A design event in Vancouver: IDSWest 2011

A few days ago the 2011 Interior Design Show West (IDSWest) started and it has been a
whirlwind of events since then.
Let’s start with a pre-Tour of the show at the Convention Center in Vancouver, last Thursday, where I was able to visit the show before the doors were open for the public.  Gracious Nancy Bendsten from Inform Interiors led me to their Tom Dixon Bar, a great space to relax and socialize during the intense 4 days event.

Barbara at Hodge Podge and a few other talented girls.
