From top, left to right: Gorgeous wall of Farrow & Ball colours - they are just so velvety and posh, and always just the right hue. Wish I could afford them. :) Laser-cut alphabet by Eva Bartha of lasercreative.ca in a fun casual font. They also had laser-cut felt hangings and their business card is laser-cut slices of wood. Show-stopping copper tub in the Ikea booth (which won the Gold Booth Award). All of the tiles at Ceragres were beautiful (really, really beautiful), but I quite like this wood-grain tile for kitchens or bathrooms, where tile is the most practical but a wood floor looks so nice!
I had to stop at this eye-catching paint display at the Beauti-Tone Paint booth, where they had lots of great DIY paint ideas. The Ikea display was the star of the show (I'll post some of their publicity photo eye candy below) but the marketer in me liked that they included the very-affordable prices. New works by one of my favourite Canadian artists, Charlie Pachter in the Caviar20 booth. I am dreaming up ways to use these big hexagonal tiles at Ceragres.
And here are the publicity Ikea booth photos I was sent, which I am posting because it was impossible to get a great photo with all the crowds in there.
And here are some great IDS13 round-up posts:

I wanted to post these right away, but this weekend I was as sick as I have been in a very long time with some sort of flu or virus. It has run through every member of our household and is hanging on much too long! I am used the colds and flu that go around but this one knocked us all flat.
