Summer is almost here, and a brand new season of Shop the Show is just around the corner at AmericasMart! As a preview, we’ll be checking in with each of our talented influencers, including lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose. Ashley is the creative force behind Sugar & Cloth, a popular destination for all things DIY, entertaining, recipes, home décor, and travel.
Ashley’s effervescent, pastel-hued aesthetic and expert level DIY projects have made her a respected voice in the industry and an in-demand brand collaborator. Her “Shop the Show” expedition at AmericasMart will allow this entertaining expert to curate a collection of all her favorites in home, fashion and gift merchandise, which she’ll share at market via social media, live events and more!
We got the details from Ashley on what inspires her aesthetic, and what this trendsetter will be scouting at market for 2019 and beyond. Read on for more from Ashley!
Fun Facts: I’m originally from small-town Charleston, West Virginia. As much as we travel, I really, really don’t like to fly. My Dad is the one who taught me about all things DIY.
Inspired By: I always love some good Dorothy Draper flair!
Top 3 Things Every Event Needs: I’m a big fan of the little details during an event, but you’ll always create a memorable party with a hero element like a custom backdrop, a statement hanging installation, or a focal point runner. Combine that with a classic menu item and signature drink, you’re all set.
3 Must-Haves for Next Season & Beyond: Natural wood Rattan Terrazzo
3 Go-To Colors for Next Season & Beyond: Blush pink Golden yellow Burnt orange
What’s New: Imperfection is the new curated.
