about DecorAddict, "shop local" if you can :-)

In an attempt to satisfy my need/hunger/desire (I think you get it) of interior design & decor addicts everywhere who seek out new idea's, home store's, and products. With no set design style in mind, there is something here for everyone, in every style.

In addition to interior's, also featured
are introduction's and interview's with local Canadian designer's and goods, original art, and design tips from me, Trina Brandon, Interior Decorator. I graduated from Humber College's Interior Decorating program wwwaaayy back in 2004.

The "plan" is to keep as much of the content on DecorAddict as local/Canadian as possible, from finding new retailer's, to new and emerging artist's, the main objective being "shop local". Mass production is great, but who wants the same lamp as the rest of the population? Yes, I'm an Ikea addict as much as the next person, but the real treasure's are found at that little antique/consignment shop you found accidentally in 'Small Town, Ontario'.

If you are also a DecorAddict aficionado, I'd love to hear from you as a guest writer, please feel free to drop me a line at decoraddict@gmail.com with your story idea, and we can chat! Do you have a product that you would like featured here on DecorAddict? Then let me know!!!! Preference's will first go to independent Canadian artist's, designers and retailers. Remember, Shop Local my friend's!

Bookmark DecorAddict !!!! Now !!!!! Get ready for new design finds!!!

Woo Hoo!!!! I'll keep everyone posted !!!
