One of my favorite new shows is HGTV ‘Design Star‘ where budding interior designers compete for their own show. Each week they must compete in a particular challenge that showcases their design skills, and last week, they had to design a party lounge based upon a particular era in time or style. A few examples included Hollywood Regency, the Victorian era, Art Deco, and Midcentury Contemporary. Most of the themes were from days past, and the designers incorporated elements that brought together some fabulous furniture, colors, and accessories.
One of the trends we’ve seen a lot of in event design recently is the combination of classic and contemporary, paying homage to various time periods or styles. Check out this link of some favorites we’ve seen, including victorian chandeliers, milk vases, vintage typewriters, and more!
