Rich tones, colour blocks, a touch of black and big flouncy florals are what’s to come this autumn and winter.


Spring is a particularly fun season lending itself to bolder colors, more vibrant patterns, and generally more playful looks than its seasonal counterparts. And, fortunately for us all, this year is definitely no exception.


Take a cue from the freedom of the season and go against the grain for fresh summer decor do’s to try. Often more free-spirited, you’ll find that a renewed approach to every summer interior design trend this year calls for the unexpected most welcomely. 


When it comes to the fall season, it's all about experimenting with rich hues, ranging from brown to orange. To bring these colors to life for the season, consider a mix of patterns, textures, and creative layouts for an inviting space.

I'm a Santa Barbara Wedding Planner and have been working with the Tent Merchant for years. I always love to support local businesses and the Tent Merchant is one of our top rental providers. They have a huge variety of rentals including place settings, furniture and unique props. They are often willing to source new items for us if not already available and even built our clients a stunning custom built circle bar. Sherine, John and their team provide our clients with the best service. I highly recommend hiring them for all of your event rental needs. They are AMAZING!

Thank you so much for all the hard work you and your crew put in to ensure a successful orchid show this year. I know it could not have been easy to orient yourselves to the layout, etc. for the first time, but I have heard nothing but compliments from our staff about The Tent Merchant! It has always been a pleasure to work with you folks!

Lauris Rose, Santa Barbara International Orchid Show President

When throwing a party, it’s important to have a bit of flair. Thankfully, there’s the Tent Merchant to help with that. From props to lighting to furnishings to tents and canopies, the event rentals company has anything and everything a person needs to add flourish to their function. Indy readers agree, as The Tent Merchant was voted Best Event Rentals this year. It’s an honor owners John and Sherine Leenhouwers appreciate, saying, “To us it means we are loved and people like what we do.” As for what the future holds, the duo recently opened a home store on State Street, so “given our imagination, who knows what we will be up to,” they said, adding, “We enjoy every moment of what we do.”
