We will discuss the focal point in the room and how to draw a floor plan to help you move forward in creating a well thought out and designed room. We will design your room using your existing furnishings and discuss how to budget for future purchases. The goal for this class is to help you see your room through new eyes.
Week 2 – 90 minutes: Blending Fabric Patterns
Our second class will feature tips, rules and guidelines on how to blend colors, mix textures and choose paint colors. Our discussion will include the psychology of color and how it affects our decorating scheme… and us. We will also discuss personal lifestyles and how to address these challenges during your design process. The goal of this class is to help you begin a color board for your project.
