IDS 2011 - The New CDECA Show Booth is rolled out.....

It took almost a year but we finally have our fantastic new show booth for CDECA  which we unveiled at IDS 2011and received many great reviews  from everyone who visited us.  I am so proud of this booth and with the hard work of my great team on the National Show Events Committee.  We have a booth that is professional and classy and really represents our wonderful association.

This year we  presented a floor plan and created 4 design boards representing the rooms from that plan.  We then selected materials and finishes that had a central colour theme of gray and partnered each room with additional colours that would all work together for a cohesive look and help transition the flow from room to room.  We felt that this would help consumers who visited our booth see how we as decorators did much more than just pick nice colours.  Our intention was to show that we can start with a plan - create that plan on auto cad to exact and precise measurements; follow through with furniture selection and placement and then on the selection of finishes and colours appropriate to each space.  As decorators we are responsible for many aspects of a project.  Have a look at some of the photos of our wonderful booth and design boards. 
Move In Day and oh what fun that was - building our booth from the ground up but thanks to a team member, my wonderful husband and Tom Goldberg of Legacy Home Solutions we went from this ....
