The Interior Design Show also known as IDS came and went for another year and left some inspiration in its wake for everyone who attended. For me, as a designer, trade shows are an opportunity to learn via seminars, network with peers and suppliers as well as glean inspiration for future projects.

I am often asked what are the trends in interior design, I’d rather look at it as a ‘direction’ rather than trend since trends are known to be fleeting. This year at the Interior Design Show, I saw a lot of natural materials and organic shapes. I also saw a strong presence of technology being used to create textures and images (for instance large scale wallpaper that is printed on high-quality paper and ready to install on any wall).  It seems like overall, interiors are lighter and brighter with wood floors being left natural, not stained dark, and mixed metals in faucets and hardware.

I look forward to this year and the opportunity to express my inspirations through my clients’ projects.
