Hello friends, not much happening in my world this weekend other than enduring the rain and cozying up with my kitty and Netflix. I’m happy to have a weekend with no projects to finish or events to attend. Cheers to two quiet days living in pajamas just watching the rain fall outside.
Yesterday I attended the International Builder Show (IBS) and National Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) both taking place simultaneously during Design & Construction Week at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and let me tell you it’s HUGE. There are tens of thousands of people in the industry that attend. All the major brands you can think of are set up booths, it’s a once a year opportunity to see all the new design and home improvement products and also meet with the reps that work for these major brands and I was SO excited to be there.
I also attended an influencer presentation on design trends which was insightful (see notes at the bottom). I mingled and photographed what I saw and I was like a kid in a candy store. I’d rather fondle tile and faucets and flooring and cabinets than any other products in the world!
I had a press pass and took a ton of pictures so I could share them with you. First here’s a peek at some emerging trends based on products and displays seen on the floor:
