My dear friend Ivan Meade has created a special occasion today generously inviting a small group of local designers to welcome the talented Interior designer and blogger Tobi Fairley on her first visit to Vancouver.
A wonderful day of sunshine, a delicious brunch in the luxury "Loden" boutique hotel, a gift for every guest plus a boutonniere to bring home, smart conversation and the opportunity to meet in person so many talented people.
Even if I knew already the work of Tobi Farley, Amie de Toro, Victoria Lambert (who shares with Kelly the blog Design Ties) and Kimberly Williams, it was a great pleasure to be introduced to them.
Echo Eaton, Patricia Gray and Michelle Morelan were already close to my heart.
Unfortunately my pictures did not result in a success, the only one barely acceptable, which does not even start to give justice to the beauty of the two ladies, is the one below the title (Tobi on the left, Echito on the right) but I am sure we'll see more beautiful pictures of the event on other blogs, so please click on each highlighted names to know more about our special day or to appreciate what each of these people create.
I felt so privileged to be invited, thank you dear Ivan for planning this event so carefully in every detail and thanks to beautiful Echito for helping organize it.
Tomorrow...brunch at the Vancouver Art Gallery!
