GTA Home & Reno Show 2017 – ReCap
This past GTA Home and Reno Show was a great launch to this year’s renovation season. We were the proud designer of Reno & Decor’s Design Intervention booth that not only hosted many talented designer friends but also many of you seeking design advice for your projects. We took our cue from small space design for this year’s booth featuring many of the current inspirational trends and colours.
We enjoyed working with the Reno & Decor staff who have made this a fun and rewarding experience. I’d also like to extend a big thank you to all our sponsors for their dedication and participation: Casa Life, Quartex Surfaces, Alendel Fabrics, Cardoza Custom Woodworking, Renwil, Eventful PR, Specialty House Manufacturing, Ruth Baker Design, Artistic Stone Design, Benjamin Moore and Bousada Flooring.
Here’s hoping the home show was inspirational and happy renovating!
