Kimberley Seldon at Salari Fine Carpets


Kimberley Seldon and Albarosa Simonetti

November and December are not the best months of the year, speaking of weather, it was already snowing in Vancouver a few days ago, quite unusual for this city, known for  the mildest climate in Canada, and today is freezing cold! but they are also months full of events for art, design, theatre, months when we entertain and socialize more. We can also indulge in tasting more wines and savoring more food because, you know, on the First of January we all go on a diet, right?
In just a week we had several parties in the city catering to designers and the latest was at Salari Fine Carpets, a family-run business, specializing in hand knotted carpets for over 35 years with a number of modern lines from leading manufacturers added later to their inventory. In attendance there was Kimberley Seldon,  an interior designer, author, journalist, keynote speaker and broadcast personality. She is also a contributing Decorating Editor at Style and Home magazine and principal of Kimberley Seldon Design Group.

What else can I add...fantastic food catered by Quince, gorgeous flowers arrangement by Zwada Home, great conversation and a chance to meet new people and greet old friends, and now back to reading Kimberley Seldon's book!

Thanks Robert, your party at Provide was great too. I did not have my camera with me and I was enjoying the cocktails from Chambar...
