Apparently the the Ottawa Home and Design Show, October 2-4, is a first in Ottawa. There should be an important design and decorating component to this show compared to the likes of the Home Renovation Show. I'll probably go check it out. I'm hoping for less knick knacks and clutters booths and more creative and inspirational spaces.
I wish I could have participated. But I'm still new to Ottawa and I don't have all the proper contacts to make it happen, but if I could I would have participated and presented something like this, a life size 400 sq. ft condo unit. I think it would have been really neat. You can find out more about my ideas for this show here.
Anyway, maybe next year. I did speak with some people who might want to participate with me next year, and I'm planning on finding others who want to participate as well.
