It’s been several months now since and I have to say I’m impressed with those who blog the day or week after an event. For me, I need to digest, soak in all I’ve learned and experienced, and that can take some time. Finding the best angle for me to write from and share my insights is also important. Rather than blogging about Blogfest I decided to hone in on a few experiences from the incredible three days and what they meant to me.

What I learned from Kravet:

Before & After – Nyla Free Designs

After moving into a previously owned home typically there are grand plans to make it your own, however it’s common to settle in and watch years go by before a renovation occurs. Our goal was to surround the room with books creating floor to ceiling, wall to wall bookshelves housing an eclectic collection of inspiring reading material.


Artists – Nyla Free Designs

Focused on unique, vintage and salvage findings in an effort to create one of a kind furniture, lighting and art, each piece is a conversation starter in it’s own way. The past is a deeply personal and resonant place for people and I am always looking at ways to capture these feelings on canvas; immortalize them and make them big.


A Day in the Life – Nyla Free Designs

Install days are filled with the work of unpacking boxes, placing furniture and accessories, hanging art and drapery, arranging flowers, and cleaning up the mess you just made all before the client arrives home for the reveal. If you’re wondering what I’ve been up to, I spent all last week, along with a team of people transforming a historic Calgary home for the house tour that happened this past weekend.
