Design Bloggers Unite

I had the pleasure of being at the Canadian Design Bloggers event where I met an amazing group of Bloggers with a focus on design.  What a great group of very beautiful women (and a couple of stylin guys).  They all had great style and were so enthusiastic about their passion for design.  I am a design virgin and a blank slate for this very informed group to share their thoughts.  They were all very excited to hear Tommy Smythe talk about design and his recent trip to Europe to learn about the history of Ikea.   He showed us images from his trip where he had found great inspiration.

Daniella and Vie were the organizers of this great event.

They had fantastic prizes that they drew names for.  Delta had provided 2 different models of their touch technology kitchen faucets and a beautiful lavatory faucet, 2 really cool hand held shower heads as well as some beautiful books.  IKEA donated a $1000 gift certificate and each person also received a Janjo work lamp in their take away bag!  Crate and Barrel donated a beautiful bed set and CIL donated an iPad2 32G.  I would have loved to have won any of these fantastic prizes but I have to admit I was most jealous of Sarah, of Redesigning Sarah, for winning the iPad 2.  There was also a really nice Rowenta Garment Steamer.

Everyone was so well put together and beautiful.  Check out this group!
