Home Decor: 2009 will be the Year to GO GREEN. Floral design trends should follow Fashion design trends in colors, textures, and patterns. As a professional event planner I follow all design trends in order to provide a wide scope of options and design advice to my clients. My company is based on modern innovation and creativity.
Some of the design basics for 2009 are as follows:
Design arrangements will be more commonly taller and grander, due to the economic challenges people tend to stray away from conforming to the obstacles faced. If a person is going to invest in an event they will ensure they get the best for the dollar. Taller arrangements set a sense of elegance and grandeur. Multiple colors that complement each other are also a big trend in 2009. Colors that blend in the same color family will be more commonly used in 09 (ex. A Deep purple will be mixed with a plum, violet and rose color).
Fresh Flowers is still holding strong in the #1 floral spot - most would think that during these rough economic times people would opt out for silk flowers, but there are some sacrifices worth making. Fresh flowers have and always will be a must.
