Good Morning Arkansas

Posted by

I am very excited to be doing a series of television spots on KATV Channel 7’s Morning Show, Good Morning Arkansas.  The last Wednesday morning of each month for the next six months, I will be bringing viewers the latest and greatest in interior design basics and the hottest design trends complete with all the steps for creating these sames looks at home.

When designing spaces for my clients, I do what my staff and I refer to as “Design Time”.  This is the very creative time spent in my studio and fabric workroom brainstorming, drawing, selecting and creating each and every detail of my luxury design schemes.

For these fun TV segments which I will refer to as “Design Time with Tobi Fairley”, my hope is to bring a bit of this same creative energy to the viewers and help them to create inspired interior design at home. Each Design Time with Tobi Fairley segment will be highlighted here on my blog and this is where I will get into all the details of these fun and easy Do-it-Yourself projects so that Good Morning Arkansas viewers (and my loyal blog readers) can bring great style to their own spaces without breaking the bank!

Stay tuned for today’s Design Time with Tobi Fairley blog post coming up this afternoon right here.  And if you are in the Good Morning Arkansas viewing area, be sure to catch my five minute segment on the show this morning between 9:00 and 10:00 on KATV Channel 7.

    Great to see you on GM AR! How do you get the paint to stick on the SLICK flea market lamps you showed???

    Thanks for the comment. To paint fleamarket ceramic lamps, rub them a bit with sand paper so that the finish sticks to them well. Then use a primer and follow up with paint. These particular lamps were painted with an eco-friendly latex paint but if sustainability isn’t a major concern, use can use an oil based paint for longer lasting results. Also for the most smooth finish, spraying on the paint is the best option as opposed to brushing on the color.

    You can also paint metal finishes like brass, Just consult your local hardware or big box hardware store for the best primer for metal surfaces.

    Happy Decorating!
