An obstacle for many businesses in the Interior Design&Lifestyle field today is

“How to get concise information about future trends that are relevant to my business?”

And once industry specific data is gathered, the next major question is: how to involve our teams to transmit up-to-date trend information to end consumer channels?

A certainly compelling and entertaining way to bring this information to life is through an in-house trend talk giving clients the confidence to make the right decisions.

Mood board sessions can be offered to work on tailor-made trend decisions to gain clarity during a creative process and to use this technique to communicate with third parties, being internal (in-house departments) or external (end consumer).
