Consumer show survival guide

Consumer show survival guide

Fall Home show season is just around the corner. Setting up a booth at a consumer show can be a great way to generate business. It can also be an expensive, exhausting way to waste a weekend if you don’t prepare for it properly. Here are some tips to make your next show a success.

  • You’ll obviously deduct the cost of renting the booth space and any staff time or materials used to set up it, but remember to get receipts for parking, meals, and any other expenses incurred onsite.
  • Wear comfortable shoes – leave the sky high heels at home ladies – and change your shoes and socks at least a couple of times a day.
  • Drink lots of water, and use lip balm liberally.
  • Eat healthy foods. If you start your morning loading up on bacon from the breakfast buffet then spend the day topping up with chips and junk food you’ll feel lethargic by mid-afternoon. Snack on a piece of fruit or some nuts to tide you over, and drink more water.
  • Bring a “survival” kit to the show with you: along with the aforementioned change of footwear and healthy snacks, also pack some Advil or Tylenol, hand sanitizer, gum, eye drops or contact solution, and a charger for your phone.
  • Set some targets. If you go into a show without a plan there’s no way to know at the end of it was a success or not. Set hourly goals for how many people you’ll speak with and a target for how many solid leads you’ll walk away with.
  • Get people’s attention. If you’re not a natural showman you’ll need some way to stand out from the crowd. Contests, giveaways, videos showcasing your best work, or a standout display stand help prevent eyeballs glazing over as they pass your booth.
  • Go easy on the booze, particularly if there’s a hospitality bar at night. You’ve spent a lot of time and money to be at the show. You’re not going to find new clients if you’re sleeping off a hangover in your hotel room.
  • Sleep well. That starts will leaving the party early. But conference centre hotels can draw boisterous crowds. Pack a sleep mask and ear plugs to help block out the party scene.

RENO & DECOR Magazine presented:“Design Intervention”


Kristiina Roosimaa – RENO & DECOR booth designer

I am grateful for Reno&Decor, who gave me a great opportunity to design their 2018 Fall Home Show booth.

In my perspective the booth was an absolute pearl at the show this year with its Scandinavian aesthetics and feel. I had a wonderful chance to work with a Danish furniture company Bo Concept Toronto and their team who sponsored the interior setting with furniture and accessories.

To my pleasant surprise the walls for the created room settings all came pre-prepped with my specific instructions for painting which was sponsored by Benjamin Moore. In my opinion it is a great platform for the designers and sponsors who make this happen a great opportunity to be seen.

Thank You again for the opportunity.



Thanks to all the designers that participated in Design Intervention:

TORONTO FALL HOME SHOW: Stuck For Space?

TORONTO FALL HOME SHOW: Stuck For Space?

TORONTO FALL HOME SHOW: Stuck For Space?

Look up for your next storage solution

Would you trade square footage for a prime location and easy access to the best in food and entertainment? If you said yes, chances are, like many Torontonians, you’ve chosen to forfeit space to be downtown where the action is.

Although small spaces present unique storage challenges, have no fear — celebrity interior designer Linda Mazur has paired up with the 2018 Toronto Fall Home Show to provide those living in tight quarters a way to make the most of the space they do have.

“Thinking vertically is a design must when it comes to small spaces and storage solutions,” says Mazur. “There are several ways your small space can work for you without compromising the design aesthetic of your home.”

CONVERTIBLE FURNITURE

The original Murphy bed has inspired thousands of new, convertible furniture items that can be tucked away or collapsed when not in use for extra space. Try finding a table that flips up against the wall featuring a pegboard underneath to keep yourself organized.

UNUSED SPACE

Your footprint might be small, but there are quite a few places in apartments and condos that go totally unused, including doors. Adding a shelf above your doorframe will create sleek extra storage solution.

USE THE CEILING

Surface space may be lacking to display plants, collectables and books, especially if you have no room for even a side table. Why not use the ceiling? Suspend shelving or modern macramé baskets for a bohemian storage solution that keeps your floorspace clear and clutter free.

DUAL PURPOSE

Force your wall furniture into double-duty with hidden storage compartments that still look trendy. Instead of wasting the wall behind your bed with a headboard, try replacing it with a bookshelf. Voila! Talk about using your head.

CREATE YOUR OWN LOFT

When in doubt, make a new floor. Build a platform for your bed to create usable space underneath. Add a built-in desk underneath with extra drawers, create a cozy TV nook with a space for blankets or turn the stairs leading up to your new bedroom into an extra bookshelf.

It’s all there at the Fall Home Show 2018

Modern Families Cause Designers to Look Beyond Modern Design

It’s not like it was in the olden days; kids are returning home from college and staying indefinitely, and parents and grandparents either looking to downsize or who require some extra medical attention are moving in with their kids as well. Families now come in all shapes and sizes, and the way we design our homes needs to reflect this with sophisticated, intelligent and functional design.

When architects and interior designers look to design living spaces in 2018, clean, modern and open concepts aren’t the only factors to be kept top-of-mind with multiple generations living under one roof, creating a functional space requires thoughtful consideration for everyone’s needs. Thankfully, the 2018 Toronto Fall Home Show has many functional design solutions that can help with three main issues in multi-generational houses: organization for personal items, ways to maximize living space and creating privacy where you thought impossible.

Organization for personal items

1. Some people hide their belongings under the mattress, but why not maximize the space under the bed in general? Furniture stores like Leon’s offer platform bedframes with drawers underneath to provide more storage and space in a bedroom—while still looking sleek.

2. Look for slick and modern shelving units and headboards that will come in handy for all those accessories you never know where to put. If you’re really stuck for floorspace though, you can always hide your room in the walls. Hidden Bed Factory creates custom murphy beds, desks and even fridges that can be tucked up to conserve space.

3. With the right furniture, you can really get a sense of privacy while keeping the look of your home sleek and modern. Dividing up an open room with a piece of furniture is all you need, like a room divider, book case, or a chair or couch to sit in when you just want your own space.

For a trick that seems so silly it just might work: with strategic furnishings, even a comfy chair or couch with higher arm rests can give you the feeling you’re alone.

4. Keep private items out-of-sight from guests with hidden storage compartments and multi-purpose furniture. Ottoman storage is an easy way to save space, but multi-purpose coffee tables are getting more creative. Try a playable—yes, you heard that right—multi-function, old-school Atari Pong Coffee Table that has USB chargers, a digital clock and hidden controls controls.

Maximize living space

5. Take a look beyond furniture to see if spaces are well-assigned—maybe some bedroom swaps are needed? Utilize basement and main floor rooms that fit their inhabitants: grandparents will most likely not want to have to walk up and down stairs to get to their room. And your kids just returning home from college don’t necessarily want to be on the same floor as their parents anymore. Try connecting with GTA General Contractors to see how your space can be used more efficiently.

This year’s Toronto Fall Home Show will bring you everything from the things you absolutely need, desperately want, and everything in between. With solutions ranging from functionality, décor and big home projects like that reno you haven’t gotten around to.

Toronto Fall Home Show 2017 – ReCap

Toronto Fall Home Show 2017 – ReCap

teb Interiors Inc. had the distinct honour of designing this years RENO & DECOR Design Intervention booth at the 2017 Fall Home Show and I have to say that it was an exhilarating experience.  It was an amazing creative outlet for us to help bend minds into thinking outside of the box. We have always been about trying to expand people’s thoughts and take them beyond their comfort zone and to not have so much fear about what other people will think of your space.

Allow your personality to shine through and let everyone else see it and embrace it.  You’re worth it!

Of course, this was not a one man show.  First of all, HOMES Publishing Group allowed us full freedom on whatever we could conjure up without any road blocks, so that opened the flood gates.  We received an overwhelming amount of support from some of our suppliers like, Rustik Design who, on top of enchanting the booth walls with his own artwork, custom made all the little skull corner pieces that complimented all the panel moulding that wrapped the booth.  Speaking of the panel moulding, Metrie is now our favourite ‘go to’ for moulding and doors.  They were more than willing to shower us with all the baseboard and panel moulding we needed to accomplish our goals.  The we needed to fill the space with furniture so in true fashion, our close friends at Design Republic stepped up to the plate and gave us anything and everything we needed.  Digging those rustic and industrial light fixtures?  Those are the brain children of Adam Fullerton, make sure you check out his Instagram, especially the custom ceiling light fixture he created out of a vintage Drum kit.  But I have to say that the one thing that reached out and lured people to the booth had to be the custom wallpapers.  Especially the Wonder Woman vignette.  Ruth Baker Design and teb Interiors Inc. are a force not to be reckoned with when it comes to creating outstanding custom wallpapers and murals.  I double dog dare you to argue that point.

Was it exhausting?  Hell, yeah.  Would we do it again?  Abso-freaking-lutely.  You may just see us again sooner than you think.

Bathroom Bliss

by Linda Mazur

Bathrooms are traditionally one of the smallest rooms in your home, and have long been simply a functional space that never garnered much attention.  However, today bathrooms are becoming elevated to highly stylized spaces that not only evoke personal taste but customized lavishness.

Whether it’s a “spa-like” retreat you’re after or a timeless, classic design that is big on functionality, today’s bathrooms are delivering large on luxury.  Beautiful porcelain tiles that create stylish patterns on your floors and walls, quartz countertops, custom cabinetry designed to fulfil all your storage needs, elegant soaker tubs that not only deliver on beauty and style but comfort and relaxation…these are the makings of a luxurious bathroom oasis.  However, a good bathroom design isn’t just about style, it’s also about functionality.  It doesn’t matter if your bathroom is large or small, if you prefer a charming rustic look or something more refined, when you’re looking to renovation your bathroom your design should bring together all that is the best of what you envision while still maintaining the needs of day-to-day living.

With all that is available to us today, it’s easy to be inspired.  The tile selections are endless from tile that looks like wood, to metallic finishes, to art-deco influenced tile pattern; it’s enough to make your head spin.  And then, there’s your bathroom faucets and fittings?  It used to be that chrome was the way to go, however, today we have options available from trending unlacquered brass, from respected design forward company Victoria + Albert to matte blacks and coppers.

Needless to say, today’s bathrooms are no longer just a practical space, they are rooms with character and personality that are intended as much for general usage as they are for relaxation.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when planning your bathroom renovation:

  • Do some research and create a realistic budget, though it’s a small room, a bathroom renovation tends to be more expensive than many believe
  • Look to purchase the best quality your budget allows one of my favourite overall brands for quality and design is Victoria + Albert
  • As your tub is intended for relaxation so when shopping get in it and check out the comfort level

Come meet me at the Fall Home Show on main stage with designer Kate Davidson this Friday, September 15, 2017 at 2pm -3pm talking all about bathroom design.

****Also visit me at the RENO & DECOR booth # 1319 this Friday, September 15th from  3pm-5pm; and Saturday, September 16th from 11am – 1pm.
