DDI x Once A Tree Furniture: Designer Showcase

Once A Tree Furniture x Dexter Dolores Interiors

Hello, hello everyone! It has been too long since I posted on this blog and naturally, my return comes with some amazing news (and maybe a little favor from you guys). I have been chosen as the 9th designer to showcase at Once A Tree Furniture here in Vancouver. As part of their ongoing Designer Room Series,  I will be creating a space within their showroom to be unveiled on February 25th, and I cannot wait to get started putting it all together. OAT is a family-owned furniture showroom and manufacturer with over 30 years in the business, bringing you exceptional furniture with emphasis on quality materials, expert craftsmanship and timeless design. Since moving to Vancouver and jumping into the world of interior design, I have been a fan of this company and their amazing showroom. I soon learnt that they provide some of the best pieces in the world of home design to our city, and their retail space, without a doubt, remains at the top of my roster when I'm sourcing for any design project. I couldn't be more honored to be their next designer showcase. It's a title 8 of some of the best designers in this city have held and the pressure is definitely on! In the leading weeks and days before the unveiling I will be dropping some behind the scenes content, so be sure to keep checking here and on my instagram for all that goodness! 

That's that for the news so now comes audience participation (aka the favor). Both the team at OAT and myself are hoping to make this event the biggest one yet. So if you can, please come out Thursday, February 25th for the unveiling and let's make it a party! Send off a quick note to marketing@onceatreefurniture.com to RSVP. I hope to see you all there!

 
 
Urban Barn's Next Top Designer: Reloaded

The Vancouver Home + Design Show begins in two days!!! The excitement is real right now! There is still so much to do, but I'm definitely looking forward to pulling it all together to show all of you what I can do with $5000 worth of Urban Barn furniture and accessories! So as I run around for the next few days gathering the pieces and setting it all up, I only ask of you one favor; please come to BC Place anytime this weekend to see me, alongside my fellow finalists, to check out our booths in all their amazement and vote for your favorite design. In turn, you will be able to enter for a chance to win your very own $5000 shopping spree to Urban Barn! Now I know you definitely want to win that. So bring your mother, father, brothers, sisters, lovers and friends to BC Place anytime from October 16th-19th (this weekend!) to see us compete for the Next Top Designer title. While you're there, don't forget to check out all the other awesome things happening within the Vancouver Home + Design Show, including celebrity guests and free giveaways! I'm nervous but undoubtedly honored to be given the chance to showcase on a grand scale what I so passionately love to do. To all of you following along on my journey via my Instagram, Twitter or this blog, I can only bestow upon you the most humblest of thanks. A year and a half ago, I took the leap to venture out on my own as an interior designer in hopes of building my dream and although it has been a challenging journey thus far, I am thankful for the support and encouragement all of you have shown me (even a simple double tap means so much). I hope everyone had a joyous long weekend and a happy thanksgiving. Here's to the short work week! *clink* (haha)
