Local News: Trends Talk Next Week!

In March I posted about a trends talk I was working on that was rescheduled. Time has passed and it’s next week!


So, I’m busy putting together the final touches (and by “final touches” I mean – gulp!) of my talk on Interior Design Trends that I’m presenting on Saturday March 13th, as part of Wicked Local University in Natick.

Wicked Local is a brand of the local media group Gatehouse Media. For readers not from this area – “wicked” is our local slang meaning “cool” or it can be used to enhance a descriptor, such as in the movie “Good Will Hunting” when Ben Affleck’s character describes Matt Damon’s as “wicked smaht” – aka exceptionally smart.

So, Wicked Local produces themed “University” days (it’s from 8:00AM – 12 Noon) where attendees can select courses to take based on their interests. They did a health day last Fall and this upcoming event is all about “Home”.

Topics include:

Keynote Speakers:The Outdoor Room Dean Marsico & Derek Stearns, Plymouth Quarries


Trends in Interior Design Linda Merrill – Linda Merrill Decorative Surroundings

Upholstery 101: Covering the Basics – Kevin Kennedy, Upholstery on Broadway

Creating Your Own Edible Landscape Ben Barkan – Home Harvest – Edible Landscapes and Construction

Simple Home Repairs – Bryan Tucker

Mass Save: Your First Step to Saving Money and Energy in your Home – Steve Dzindolet, Mass Save

Choose Color with Confidence – Linda Varone, Nurturing Spaces

My talk will include trends I saw at the Kitchen and Bath Industry show last month, reports I’ve read from Maison et Object in Paris and High Point and how these “runway” looks translate into home decor. I’ll also be talking how not to become a trend victim. Hint: there’s a lot of color, metallics and natural elements coming our way! Plus, think pink!

Click here to register. It’s free and I hope you’ll join me – it should be a fun and informative morning!

xoxo Linda
