For the next couple of days I'll be in the wilds of Wisconsin at the Kohler Editor's Conference, learning all about the history of the brand and checking out all their fabulous kitchen and bath products. I'm not alone, since Kohler has kindly invited a slew of design editors from around the world including, yay, a great bunch of Canadians - Janette Ewen (who you'll know from CityLine), Danny Sinopoli (the Globe & Mail's Design & Decor Editor) and Cameron Macneil (House & Home Design Editor). We had a meet and greet last night where I tasted a bunch of delish Wisconsin cheese and had a lovely chat with Pramiti Madhavi, Editor of Elle Decor India.
While I'm here eating cheese, lol, things are moving along on the home front. The fabrics have finally been dropped off at Mieda Design so the upholstery can begin and we've finally plunked on a wallpaper for the living room. Take a look at the palette below for a rundown of what's what - The background shows Graham & Brown's Manderley wallpaper in Golden, the next fabric is David Hicks Hexagonal House Chenille in Stone by Groundworks which'll be glamming up a headboard for the bedroom, that tweedy fuschia will totally revive this vintage gold sofa, and the teal velvet from DFO will completely sort out these vintage aluminum chairs.
