Dining by Design Detroit 2010

Good Monday everyone!  Hope your weekend was full of  excitement and fun!  Were you able to accomplish everything you had hoped for?  Did you manage to sneak in some rest?  My weekend was full of activities and work (huh!).  But luckily lots of my work was related to the site which I enjoy.

You may have noticed that the “Free Projects” area is now active!  I have worked on this section for a few weeks and hope you find something that will spark your creative side.  My plan is to continue to add links and watch this area grow.

At the end of last week, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend Dining by Design in Detroit.  You many remember that I talked about it last month in this post (at the time I had no idea that I would be going!).  There were 27 displays in all with various design elements.  The designers showcased imagination and lots of creativity.  Take a look at some of the photos I took (there are quite a few!).

This was one of my favorites.  I noticed a few displays using lettering and typography as a design element.  Here it is used with the wallpaper, the block letters on the cake stand, and magazine covers on the photo stands.   The lighting was made out of old canning jars, the placemats were sheets of colorful paper, and the apricots gave the display an appropriate “punch” of color.

In this dining experience, the bowls were filled with stones, moss, and little plants!  I loved the square table and use of two benches.

More use of letters and typography!  Block letters were even placed on the plates.

Checkout the chandelier – it’s made of spoons and teacups!

More photo’s to follow today!

Hi Kristina,
I work at Leon & Lulu in Clawson. You took the BEST photo of our table (so much for all the pros out there)! Ours is the one with the teacup chandelier. I was wondering if I could “borrow” it for our email blast this week. I’ll give you full photo credit and a link to your blog. Our eblast goes out to over 10,000 people.
PS I plan on sending it out on Thursday.
