Today, I thought it would be fun to give you a sneak peek at some of the things I’ll be teaching at Design Camp A to Z, this October 3-5th. As you may already know, I teach one topic for each letter of the alphabet, so for this preview I thought I would share the letters “R,” “U,” and “N,” because I think you should not walk, but RUN to sign up for Design Camp!
Alright, let’s start with R: R is for Repurposing!
There’s been a repurposing revival in recent years, and it can be such a disappointment when it’s not done properly. When you join me at camp, I’ll give you the key tips you need to take a time-worn piece from “blah” to “BAM!”
Now, it’s time to peek at the letter U: U is for Uniting Design Styles
This is one of my favorite topics, because I get to talk a little bit about how I work when it comes to my wonderful clients! Whether you client is yourself OR someone who has paid you to design their home it’s important to know how to translate differences in design opinion into design harmony, all while staying true to YOUR vision. Whew…that’s a BIG task, but I’ve been through it so many times, I will talk you through it!
And lastly, what’s behind the letter N?: N is for No-Nos!
I want to preface this by saying, I’m a pretty open-minded person. But some mistakes that are frequently made by designers with the BEST of intentions just need to be exposed! You know what I say: a mistake uncovered is a lesson learned by all. In that spirit, I’ll show you at Design Camp some of the most glaring–but unfortunately very common–design No-Nos.
I don’t know about you, but all of this Design Camp talk is getting me EXCITED! I can’t wait to meet you in my home studio and fill you in on these and all 23 OTHER letters, from A to Z!
