behind the scenes: style at home designs etalk's tiff gift lounge

By: Elaine Song

With the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) officially in full frenzied swing, the city is buzzing with film goers, tinted SUVs and those oh-so anticipated celebrity sightings. And this year  Style at Home left its mark right in the thick of it. At the InterContinental Hotel, in the heart of downtown Toronto, Ont., we partnered with CTV's ETALK to design their TIFF celebrity gifting lounge. The suite opened its doors along with the launch of the film festival. ETALK was there to check out the space with our very own Editor-in-Chief Erin McLaughlin -- and so were we! Check out our behind the scenes look at the lounge, Erin's interview and, of course, some serious swag!

This space had to accommodate foot traffic, a seating area, food and drinks, as well as prominently display all the great swag. Bringing in Erin's styling expertise and using beautiful EQ3 furniture pieces that fit the space, a beautiful balance was achieved. To learn Erin's secrets to designing this small space, check out her tour of the lounge with ETALK  here. Photography by Elaine Song.
