Buddha Heads & IDS Toronto

There is something so peaceful about a Buddha head. With the eyes closed in a meditative state, a Buddha head radiates a serenity and sense of calm. Also, the bump on the top of the head (or ushnisha) represents superior wisdom. How cool!
Buddha heads are a popular styling item in decor right now, and it's easy to see why. They represent a global aesthetic and bring a feeling of travel and worldliness to any space!

Of course, here is mine, which you saw last week when I talked about my Ikea Expedit:
You guys had some great tips for my cord dilemma! Hiding those will be my next project.

Also, on Friday I went to the Interior Design Show in Toronto! It was so much fun. I even had a chance to say a quick hello to Sarah Richardson and Tommy in between takes (they were filming)! I snapped a picture of Sarah in action. It was really neat to see her in front of the camera - she is such a natural!
I didn't want to bother them for a picture together while they were working, hopefully I'll get a chance in the future! I grew up watching Sarah's shows and consider her a huge inspiration and a major influence in my decision to become an interior designer!
Were any of you at the show?!

I've actually incorporated the Buddha head into my bathroom decor- I have the same one you do, but in clear red!

I love the buddha head! I searched for one to put in my bathroom for awhile but never found one that was quite the right size.

I love the Buddha heads! I want to pick one up for myself. And I'm so jealous you got to see Sarah and Tommy in the flesh! Seeing her work makes me want to change career paths! She and Tommy are fabulous.

We have our Share of Buddhas here at the BLH!!
You must send your portfolio to Sarah and share how she has been a huge influence to you!!!

I love a good Buddha - too bad my husband has banned them from our home! LOL

Every time I see one at a design store, I plan on secretly buying it and placing it in our home until he realizes it's there ;).
