Consumers are exposed to a never-ending slew of design and decorating trends, but which ones stick? In this session, interior stylist and decorator Chris Carroll will examine why Aussies are less adventurous than you think when it comes to decorating. By understanding which trends customers gravitate to, you'll be better placed to stock the products that speak to them - and which styles to avoid. An informative session that wades through the noise and gives you what you need to succeed for the year ahead.
