At the start of this new year, Pinterest released its list of top 100 trends for 2016, and as far as home interiors go, grey walls has climbed towards the top of the list. I happen to love the color grey. Neither black nor white, but a spectrum in between, it’s non-commitall but makes a statement.
With the popularity of Pinterest still on the rise since launching in 2010, planning a wedding or special event has never been more accessible or imaginative. In fact, in a 2014 study, 70% of Pinterest users had created wedding-centric boards on the platform before even getting engaged. (Thank you, Secret Boards!) Not surprisingly, when it came time to actually planning a wedding, about 50% of Pinners decided they needed to be more realistic when it came time to doing those DIY pins. It’s true, planning a wedding is not easy, and nobody knows that better than an event planner. Shi-Shi Events shares some tips on getting the most out of an event planner and her predictions for wedding trends in 2016.

When I first laid eyes on one of these rugs in a catalog that wasn’t even selling rugs, I set out to learn how I could get my hands on one.
