After two days of inspiration, creation, and innovation, theres only one logical question to sum up the American Made workshop: Whats next?
That was the topic tackled by a team of five of the top names in the blogging world in the last panel of our event. Editor-in-Chief ofMartha Stewart Living Pilar Guzman hosted the roundtable discussion of whats on the horizon for food, design, and lifestyle bloggers. Heres what they had to say:
For food trends, Im seeing a lot more natural styling. When food is heavily styled, it may make a magazine look good and pretty, but it doesnt make people want to cook. -Deb Perelman ofSmitten Kitchen
Im seeing a return to color in decor. Strong colors like bright pink or fuschia. I think people were depressed and scared a few years ago, and when youre scared, you dont take risks. Color is a risk. But now these are risks people are willing to take. -Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan ofApartment Therapy
I look a lot at the actual design of blogs, and Im seeing a lot more joy, more sparkle in blog design. Its a more definitive step in the blog itself. -Stacy Morrison ofBlogHer
People putting type on their photos! Its the thing, and its doing really well on Pinterest. -Gabrielle Blair ofDesign Mom
DIY is now its own vertical. And Im excited to see that the people, the innovators, are not a specific demographic its a psychographic. These are all people who want to make their life more beautiful and fun. More people are creating their own worlds. -Erica Domesek ofP.S. I Made This
