This season is all about bold prints, texture and colour. With that being said,  when choosing which pieces to rock this SS, it is important to remember who you are, what you’re most comfortable in and bringing these trends into YOUR own style.

IDS18 HIGHLIGHTS + SPRING TRENDS

We are seeing 3D printing becoming more and more popular in the design world. The pendants [6th photo] are by a new Vancouver based company that creates 3D printed light fixtures - they were all absolutely stunning! 
At the back of the conference centre there was a market area featuring creative fashion and home products. I found some really interesting pieces here, one of my faves being these ceramic/porcerlain pieces. As per usual, IDS was a great event & I'm looking forward to the Fall edition out West!  Check out my Spring/Summer 2018 decor tips below...…
