PICTURE THIS!

It’s been a great year thus far for INTERSOURCE: growth, change, successes, teamwork, networking, opportunities, events, enhancements, and so much more. We thought we would let a few photos express some of what we “meme”:

Eric and Nancy have been at this for a while, along with many of their employees.  In celebration of 20 years in business, they hosted an evening of intrigue including music, imagery, magic, fortunes, and most importantly, good people.

On that same day, we lost a local legend. So we played some of Prince’s music and the skies opened up.

The celebration did indeed have a lot of laughter. We are very grateful to all who have supported us in various ways throughout the years. Thank you!

This spring, we were also proud to once again sponsor the floor covering for the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Showcase Home Tour. It is a great privilege to work with so many amazing, dedicated ASID Designers on this project and the results are always excellent.

Here are a few of the areas we furnished with floor covering for this year’s tour:

This summer included another tour we were pleased to be a part of, the Artisan Home Tour by Parade of Homes, that took place in June. Working with Great Neighborhood Homes, we furnished and installed rubber in the exercise room as well as carpet throughout this modern day cottage overlooking Minnehaha Creek.

July brought a trip to Texas to attend Building Buzz, a marketing conference for International Design Guild members and a wonderful opportunity to connect and bounce ideas off of other Design for a Difference (DFAD) supporters and participants in order to plan for future efforts. DFAD is a community-driven designer movement that brings interior designers together with socially conscious showrooms and other businesses to makeover needed spaces at local charities. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the video below to see our most recent DFAD project lead by the remarkably talented, Lucy Penfield of Lucy Interior Design, as well as many other generous and gifted interior designers.

Immediately following Building Buzz came the ASID Chapter Leadership Conference (CLC) and since Nancy serves as the Communications Director for the ASID MN board, this was a much anticipated and mustn’t miss event! CLC is a multi-day conference that includes keynotes, education, training, idea sharing, and networking; the conference concludes with an Awards Gala called Celebration, which honors trail blazers within the design community. CLC is a national event occurring annually and rotating around the country. It was our good fortune that it landed in Minneapolis this year. Learn more about the full scope of the ASID Foundation here.
