The Style Rooms are a unique area of the Festival, using products from around the event, our professional stylists will select their favourite pieces from the huge array of products available and use them to create stunning living spaces. In 2016 the Style Rooms celebrated summer living with the three room sets, created by the UK’s most admired interiors and lifestyle bloggers Martyn White, Interior Style Hunter and Flat 15. Each blogger was chosen for their unique style, eye for detail and captivating storytelling. The theme of this years Style Rooms is to be shortly announced, so come back soon to find our more.
2016 STYLE ROOM BRIEF
It encompassed British lifestyle and enjoyment of the summer months – whether that’s in the city, country or the suburbs. The rooms were there to inspire visitors to redecorate and style their homes after the cold and rainy months, inject personality into their interiors, be bold, brave and express themselves.
- Bloggers MUST only use products sourced from around the Festival
- The brief was open to bloggers’ interpretation, to create something that expresses their style and will appeal to their blog audiences
- Bloggers could decide to style the rooms as a bedroom, living room, drawing room, dining room, family room, study or a garden room
- The Style Rooms could feature current trends e.g. tropical, copper, blush pinks, or the bloggers can look beyond what’s currently on the market and define future trends themselves
