Two Parties :: One Night

Last week Christine, from Bijou and Boheme, and I hit downtown Toronto for two special events.

First up was the Style at Home book launch party for the The Novogratz. We got a chance to chat with Robert and Cortney for a while, it was so fabulous. They’re both friendly and down to earth, dinner and drinks with them would be so easy. Our conversation started so easily both Christine and I forgot to get a picture with them. Although, Robert did take a picture of me, he was taken back with how similar I look to a friend of theirs from home. Funny.home_by_novogratz_cover

Devoured most of their book over the weekend. I love their mix of modern with vintage, and I especially love that they share the design budget! The timing of the book release couldn’t be better… perfect, for Holiday gift giving! {Intentional I’m sure, great Marketing!} Check out their website, Facebook page or Twitter for more book launch locations, and of course, check out Home by Novogratz HGTV.

Second on our list… the grand opening of the FLOR Toronto Store. Until now, FLOR has only been in the US and I’ve been following them for a least a couple of years. Needless to say I was excited to go to this grand opening. Here’s a little excerpt from their recent Press Release…

“FLOR is a dynamic design system of coordinating 50cm (19.7-inch) carpet squares that allows people to mix and match colours, patterns and textures to customize rug,runner or wall to wall solutions for their homes.”

Here’s how the Novogratz have used FLOR in one of their design projects…

Christine and I met up with more fabulous design bloggers, and we had a little fun with the FLOR photobooth…

Awesome post! Looks like you guys had a great time at both of these events. FLOR is amazing, the suspended bed for the kids room is definitely one of my favorite designs from them.
