IDSwest :: Interior Design Show 2012

After spending the past 4 days chatting about interior design and meeting new creative friends, we rewarded ourselves with a Madonna concert and then sleeping in until 10am! With the closing of One of a Kind in Vancouver, IDSwest created the One of a Kind District as part of the Interior Design Show this year. Featuring 50 designers ranging from clothing to jewelry to chocolates and everything in between, The District was a handmade shopping experience that was a natural fit to the existing show. You can check out the SHAW TV feature here and find me talking about Roxypop and the District by fast forwarding to 1:35 – eep!
