1st Runner Up
A COLLECTED HOME in Palm Desert, CA
This large guest bedroom suite showcases the not so subtle differences between clutter and collection. After sitting in boxes for years, a lifetime of sports memorabilia are utilized to give this wonderful room a story to tell.
WINNING ISN’T EVERYTHING…
but WOW – it’s something!
The competition was fierce again this year and we are honored to be recognized amongst this amazing group of talented designers. And a special thank you goes to Jenny Cano, the Executive Director of IDS for a truly inspiring and wonderful conference this year.
ANOTHER REASON WE ARE PROUD MEMBERS OF IDS
This year marks the first combined conference of ART + IDS. This premier event brought together hundreds of home décor professionals, including manufacturers, importers, retailers, sales reps, product designers and interior designers. The conference provided unique networking opportunities where we were able to connect and collaborate while expanding our knowledge, learning the latest advances and best practices in our industry.
The highlight of our experience during this design conference was participating in the community project at Grand Veterans Village in Phoenix, Arizona.
In just 4 short hours, our conference attendees spent the afternoon decorating over 100 rooms, offices and the community center common space for homeless, low-income, and disabled veterans.
It was a privilege serving our veterans and it would not have been possible without our amazing volunteer crew and generous donors!
Less Mouse… More House
In January, Team DVS took a design field trip to attend the Las Vegas Market; the most comprehensive collection of furniture and home decor in the Western United States. We call this trade show “Disneyland for Designers” because it is overwhelming, exhausting and exhilarating all at the same time. Las Vegas Market may not be the happiest place on earth for everyone, but for designers, it has it all… minus the tourists, kids and lines.
We joined thousands of designers as we explored 5 million square feet of showrooms with the latest in furniture, fabrics, lighting, art, accessories, and rugs. Team DVS also attended seminars to gather CEU’s (Continued Education Units) which are required for our Design Psychology Certifications and our IDS (Interior Design Society) memberships.
Beyond the opportunity to see WHAT’S NEW and WHAT’S HOT, we attend this exclusive trade event because Design Vision Studio is dedicated to staying current and relevant as Interior Design Professionals. With close to 4,000 brands and manufacturing lines showcased, we had the opportunity to see a variety of new merchandise and we are so excited to bring back our knowledge and finds for our clients.
