Fall 2015 Design Trends From The International Home & Gift Show

Going to market is one of my favorite design activities because I get to review and decide what design trends I will embrace for the coming season.  Today I’m sharing the design trends I found at the International Home & Gift Show for Fall 2015.

I’ve spent the past week reviewing the collections on the hunt for what’s new, what’s trending and what’s Splendid for your Habitat at Americasmart in Atlanta.  Incase you didn’t know Americasmart during market week is where buyers, designer, manufacturers and the press converge to show and buy what you’ll see in stores and media outlets for the next season.

Since I attended the International Home Furnishings fall market week in Highpoint, NC also it’s natural to compare.  There were many similar trends and a few differences between the because Americasmart is tailored to a more regional audience and includes gifts.

However, I can confidently say the South has a world of design possibilities and Americasmart showcases it all and I’m sharing these trends first with you.
