Celebrate your space



Happy New Year! It’s amazing how fast we’ve all turned pages to reach 2012 – certainly an interesting and eventful year. It is. I ponder about this and write about it from my home-office in Syokimau. It’s a space to celebrate having just walked into it after a fulfilling journey of its actualization by varied interior industry players.

Since inception of Ideal Interiors magazine, shopping for qualitative ideas has been an interesting project. Indeed, this is part of why we write. We’d like to help you to always venture out for a valuable shopping experience. Gladly this publication was initiated by the interiors industry players with varied ideas.

This year, you’ll find even more exciting leads, awesome products and services. They are all purposed to celebrate your space – be it that office, recreation area and or residential space. The publication will enable you to shop for strategies, tactics, ideas, business relationships, solutions and more. This is the shopping you always need.

I am gratified whenever I meet and talk to readers of this publication. They say nice things about how much they scoop ideas from it. I sincerely appreciate those words. It’s important to understand that the writers don’t write to simply entertain. They instead write to nudge you, urge or should I say pester you to take action. They are all keen on adding value to your space. So, they write to prod you to unleash your remarkable potential. This isn’t something done passively…. It is done by deciding AND doing.

For this reasons, we in this edition, share with you a glimpse of what to expect at the Ideal Interiors Expo 2012. It is certainly a feast of exciting ideas and interestingly, we’ve themed it: Celebrating Your Space.

Its every bit will be richly enhanced with a diversity of purpose. If anything, by today’s lofty standards, the event is evidently the East Africa’s interiors industry biggest expo…and therefore; a must diarize! A must attend!

International design power houses, locally-based suppliers and designers shall be here to set and mark a new beginning of interiors for every budget. Grateful, we indeed are to both Ideal Standards and Ideal Ceramics – the prime sponsors of the East Africa’s 2012 Ideal Interiors Expo. They are both a dynamite of immaculate innovations. We equally salute big-time. Reason! Theirs is about building a formidable network with a steadily growing clientele that appreciate quality, quality and quality.

For one, at the expo and in this edition you’ll get to know; who’s woken to the realities in this competitive economic sector. It’s a dynamic sector that will never ever be underrated as a passing fad as has been diluted by some cynics.

For this, we hasten to say, that all our formal working and living spaces shouldn’t merely be about some four walls, a roof, window and a tight door but about quality interiors. It’s the interiors that make homes homely. It’s it that makes hotels enviable. It’s it that reflects the corporate image. It’s it that’ll continue to shape things to come.

Well then, despite the financial uncertainties of yester-year that strained various suppliers and designers in the interiors industry, there will be plenty of worthwhile creative works to approve for your space in 2012 and beyond. The recently expanding interior showrooms should surely give you a lead to this inspirational value.

As we invite to take advantage of engaging with the best of the best in this publication and at the expo, our word remains; celebrate your space plus a more fulfilling and bountiful year.

You deserve it.
