Did you ever walk into someone’s home and just say “wow” and wonder how they did it? Do you like beautiful things but are just not sure how to pull them together? Do you want to freshen up your living space but don’t know where to start? Begin the New Year understanding how you can create the home you’ve always wanted.
Enjoy a night out and join Paula Grace in the enlightening and informative seminar Design & Dessert. We’ll savor desserts while discussing the guiding factors in quality interior design known as the Principles and Elements of Design. The principles are the ideology that evaluate each element in a design (magnificent vs. mediocre, right vs. wrong) and will help you make beautiful selections and arrangements for your home. The elements are used by artisans of all types including painters, sculptors, photographers, and interior designers. They have been discovered and refined over the course of history and are considered elementary and critical to shaping the way we experience each selection and the design as a whole. Understanding the Principles and Elements of Design will give you the confidence you need to create a beautiful, functional home that your family and friends will enjoy for years to come.
