Trend spotting at Autumn Fair 2018 – here’s what we found

Team Ideal Home were invited along to talk trends, so it was only right we went on the look out for on-trend buys

Earlier this week the team attended Autumn Fair to give a presentation on Home decor trends Autumn/Winter 2018/19. It would have been rude not to enjoy a browse of all the latest home accessories while we were there right?!
