Many people ask why I offer a spectrum of services in both styling events, and fashion styling. This is why.
Fashion has been a long time influencer on home decor and on event decor. If you want to have the the most unique and fresh ideas for your home or event then you must only look at the fashion trend report for that season or the season ahead when your event is scheduled for. Some forecasters say that there used to be a 6 year lag between fashion and decor. Because we are all moving at a faster pace this is no longer the case. Now there might be a 1 season lag if any at all. If you recall I wrote a post about a bride I worked with that nearly cleared out her home of decor to outfit her event at a venue. You need not look far to find the perfect something to make your style home or event stand out.

The trend in home and fashion was and still is this style. Everyone is using wood and unfinished wood elements in their home. This came from a fashion trend of earthy tribal elements on the fashion runway.
