Lucid Interior Design blog launched January 2009 to cover news, updates and media activities for this Toronto-based firm. Coverage will include promotional events and projects for Lucid and the media hosting activities and industry presentations by principal designer, Michelle Mawby. Michelle has guest-hosted such shows as Global TV's "Room to Grow", and has been an invited speaker at events such as the Toronto Home Show. In Fall 2009, Michelle will be seen as one of the cast members of "Junk Raiders" on The Discovery Channel. The only female cast member, and the only interior designer, Michelle and a group of "freecyclers", and tradespeople were taken into seclusion for 30 days and given an amazing design challenge to solve. Lucid Interior Design has also just been invited to create a special Grand Marnier sponsored room design at the upcoming Interior Design Show, Feb. 4-9, 2009 in Toronto, Ont.
