IDSwest this Weekend + Pecha Kucha

For those of you here in the Vancouver area this weekend, The Interior Design Show West is happening starting tonight, September 17th and running through to Sunday, September 20th, 2009. IDSwest is Western Canada’s annual premiere residential design show featuring 200 exhibitors showcasing quality products and services to an audience of industry professionals, architects, designers, consumers and media.

Thursday is the Opening Night Gala featuring Pecha Kucha Volume 7, presented by the folks at Cause+Affect. Pecha Kucha is a presentation show where they invite presenters on to the stage. The presentation at IDSwest will be connected in some way with the design industry. Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each - giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show. Click here to see the list of presenters. It should be an interesting one with many great west coast designers.

We plan on being there over the weekend and will be bringing back some souvenir photo's of what we saw so stay tuned!

I love creating decor from natural finds - shells, pebbles, driftwood displayed on old Moroccan trays or distressed furniture. I have the same three ikea vases featured in the top photo with olive branches from our garden. Olive tree branches look gorgeous everywhere.
