The bright blue cover image beckoned revellers — including artists, architects, writers, photographers, builders, and others from the community — to Alteriors, a snazzy modern furniture store in Old Ottawa South. Inside, a bright yellow wall, as well as sushi from Festival Japan, Balderson cheese, treats from Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut, and Broadhead beer, made for a spirited evening of socializing.
There wasn’t a speech to say as much, but the issue marked the tenth anniversary of Ottawa Magazine‘s blockbuster Interiors issue, which has grown from 80 pages to over 160 pages of breathtaking photography and intriguing editorial. Used to be that you had to travel to Toronto or Montreal to experience great design; the Interiors issue proves this is no longer the case.
Here’s to all the people who continue to make this possible! From the architects who design amazing spaces to the people who tell their stories to the advertisers who support our vision — cheers!
