115 guests gathered at The Byron at Byron Resort and Spa on Thursday 30th June to hear Vogue Living’s editor David Clark talk about Design Trends, after his recent trip to Salone Internazionale del Mobile (International Design Week) in Milan.

The Northern Rivers’ design and development communities as well as guests from Bellingen to Brisbane made the trip to the  resort to enjoy two courses from Head Chef Gavin Hughes and hear David speak.

As to the trends, David pointed out that nowadays whilst there are always different movements from which people can be inspired and educated, design comes down to individual taste and one’s existing home.

He urges people to trust their judgment, take risks and enjoy the process of design, which does not need to be about budget.

“There are so many options these days, not necessarily expensive ones, and it’s important to trust your instincts,” he said.
