So today’s post is all about “how to create your own style”.
First, an interview: If you ever wanted to know “how an interior designer works”, check out my friend and colleague James Justus’ recent interview of me, in his blog Objective Planning LLC. As a financial planner, James really knows how to get to the heart of the “value” of what I provide. We all know putting together a home can cost some bucks, and James wants you to get your money’s worth! Of course, my interview ended up being all about “how to find your own style”, because that’s what I’m passionate about! But James really emphasizes, in a fascinating way, how doing this can really save you time and money!
Second, I’m finally going to be giving a workshop on the topic: “Create Your Own Style: A Home Interior Design Workshop”.
Here’s what you’ll take away:
You will learn about 4 major design styles:
and the values/priorities/life commitments that underlie them.
You will identify your own major and minor design style, and what values/priorities/life commitments underlie them.
You will learn the building blocks of a “timeless and classic base”, for you to use to put together your own your home furniture and décor in your own “style”.
Bring your own home interior design project or “trouble spot” to class, and I will work with you to pull together possible solutions, that incorporate your own design style. If you don’t bring your own project, you will work on a “typical living room project”, to begin to apply your own design style to a real life home interior.
At the end of the class, you will have begun to create your own “style notebook” which you can keep and add to as you go along, to create your own dream home/dream life.
The class will be held on February 2nd as part of the University School of Nashville’s Adult Education Classes. If interested, you can register online at USN Evening Classes (class No. 505 in the Home and Garden Section).
