How exciting was Decorex this year. It just keeps getting better… great products, stunning presented stands, exceptional standard of seminars and guest speakers.  And for the first time, the hugely successful Decorex Bloggers competition.  I was thrilled to be part of, coming runner-up in week One to the eventual winner, Andrew Dunning.

Here are just a few products and producers that caught my eye at Decorex 2011.

Decorex kindly invited all the Decorex Love Bloggers runner-ups and of course the winner, Andrew Dunning, to a tea and cup cake celebration, from which we then moved on to be treated to a lovely champagne and canapé gathering.  It was lovely to reconnect with the bloggers and designers I already know and to finally meet in person those I had connected with on Twitter and Facebook.

Special mention to Justyna Sowa, who did an amazing job co-ordinating the Decorex social media campaign and the Decorex Love Bloggers competition… no doubt amongst many other things.
