IMM Living Event and Giveaway

A few weeks ago I was contacted by imm Living and asked to participate in their annual Choo Choo Chooses event  along with some fellow HGTV Design Star alumni, featuring a few products from a new line of their  modern meets traditional white ceramic line.

“Based in the eclectic downtown core of Toronto, imm Living is a design company that addresses notions of the past and present.  Drawing from the traditional and popular cultures of our world, imm Living creates designs marrying functionality with a playful sensibility. As varied as the people behind each project, our work is injected with rich meaning, evoking emotion between objects and people, while bridging cultural differences.”

There products have been featured on Martha Stewart Living and Country Living to name a few… So of course I said yes, especially when I saw the fun, yet oh-so-quirky items I got to work with. They put a smile on my face and I hope they put a smile on yours too!

I have always described my own personal style as fun yet quirky traditional. I like classic looks paired with a little bit of funk. They asked me to incorporate their pieces into my own design, but since most of you know I am currently homeless right now (read what I’ve been up to here), I had to rely on the goodness of my family and friends! It just goes to show you how versatile imm Living’s designs are… because you can see how the other two designers ( ) used them too.

Without further ado…

Royal Tine Jewelry Holder (Deer & Antelope)

Ok. I am just dying over these antler jewelry holders! Are they not to die for cute? I think they would go in any kind of decor… traditional to modern. I am smitten.

Quill & Dagger Feather Letter Openers (Pheasant, Eagle & Peacock)

I have displayed these with some letters that were of importance to to my mother in law (MIL). She loves to read and has a huge library of books. To add some interest to her collection of books while adding importance and attention to her letters she received from 3 different Presidents of the United States.

But these would also look very nice in an office to use for opening mail… as they are not only beautiful, but fully functioning.

Shed Hunting Wall Hook (Deer & Moose)

This is my sister in law Leah’s brand spanking new kitchen… she like me loves turquoise. =) I think these hooks were designed more to be hung upright and hold necklaces, but I thought they would also be cute in the kitchen holding various utensils and hot pads.

Black Forest Clock

This clock screamed at me, “I want contrast!!” I think this would have been so adorable in my daughter’s black and white bedroom, but I am also loving it against the turquoise wall.

Ornamental Farm Place Card Holder (Turkey, Cow)

I had a lot of fun with this last set of items… and it includes some quirky place card holders as well as a juicer. When I looked these, I had 2 directions I could go. Ultra modern, or country. It seemed kismet to go country this time as I am currently living on my in-laws awesome farm while we house hunt.

I thought this could be a fun easter morning breakfast…

How perfect that there are cows and chickens right out side… but if you long for that feel, you can still have it with these lovely little guys.

Dr. Bird Juicer

How adorable is this juicer (pictured above too)? How fun would it be to get the kids involved with making fresh OJ.

Even though this was a country breakfast, bold damask paired with imm Living’s collection made this breakfast feel “a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll”!
