High Point Market Style Spotters Contest!

Posted by

Hello friends,
Today I’m writing to you from one of the most exciting places in the country right now, High Point Market!

A couple of weeks ago, Cheminne Taylor-Smith, VP of marketing at High Point,  shared the inspiration behind some of this season’s hottest trends. Today, I’m thrilled to be able to share some of the actual pieces I’ve found via my Style Spotters Pinterest board!!

Style Spotters is one of my favorite things about market. Last year, I had the opportunity to participate in the contest and ended up winning! Here’s how it works: I spot items I like on showroom floors, snap a picture and upload it to this Pinterest board to share with you. Then, I receive points based on the number of likes and repins each item gets.

It is like a treasure hunt!! I hope you’ll check out my board and like or repin the items you love.

Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what trends you are hoping to see emerge from market.

Happy Monday!
xo,

-Tobi

 

Pastels Popping Up Everywhere!

Last fall I had the great privilege of being a Style Spotter at High Point Market and ended up winning the contest!! I had such a great time walking around, snapping away to capture the latest trends. I was super excited when I was asked to spot some of this spring’s hottest trends for a recent story with High Point. Once again, going back to this 2012′s Pantone color of the year, Tangerine Tango, I spotted pastels being paired with this bold shade everywhere! I especially love this color with a soft lilac!

 

There’s something very refreshing about this combo. I think because it’s a balanced, yet vivacious mix that won’t overpower your space. Here are a few of my favorite finds from Serena and Lily that could bring this combo into your home.

1. Persimmon Wall Paint   2. Plum/Putty Diamond Throw Pillow  3. Lilac Wall Paint  4. Plum Herringbone Throw  5. Pimento French Ring Sheet Set  6. “Are You That Happy” Painting by Paule Dubois Dupuis  7. Rope Bin Collection – Orange  8. Pumpkin Border Frame Rug
