Tobi’s Top Tips and my Design from A to Z Live Event

Posted by

Tobi Tip 1

We are just 5 weeks away from my VERY FIRST live event in Dallas. Yep, my Design from A to Z course is coming to Big D and it’s happening soon! So to celebrate, today I am bringing you 10 of my favorite design tips while I tell you all about my signature A to Z course and why you must join me for some super-sized design fun in Texas–because as we know everything is bigger in Texas.

Tobi Tip 2

I am so excited that we have moved our live events to Dallas this year making it easier and less expensive for many of you to join me and learn how to design your own home the way design professionals like me design our own projects. We have a special price running all year long for my events in honor of my 15th anniversary in business and it’s much easier to get to Big D than it is to our tiny airport in Little Rock.

If you want me to teach you my step-by-step approach to designing a floor plan that functions for you, creating a gorgeous kitchen design, selecting the perfect paints, mixing fabric colors and patterns with success (my specialty) then you MUST attend my Design from A to Z course on March 18-19 in Dallas.

I will also help you decide where to save and where to splurge in your home. I will help you think out of the box when it comes to your lighting plan and fixtures. I will teach you the biggest Do’s and Don’t to avoid in design. And just think…avoiding these mistakes alone will save you so much money that it could very well pay for your A to Z investment.

Tobi Tip 5

In Design from A to Z , I teach lots of the principles of design that I learned in Design School and I bring you techniques and “on the job training” that I’ve learned through my almost 20 years in the industry.

If you are into repurposing, antiquing and sustainability, you will love the section on how I have repurposed pieces to add unique style to my spaces while keeping more money in my pocket and being kind to the earth. A triple win!

Tobi Tip 7

I will even bring some sneak peeks of a few projects I am currently working on and you will get to see my design selections for some of these current projects (shhhh!….they’re top secret!) plus a few before and after images that will be hitting magazines and the internet soon but that no one has seen quite yet. How exciting, right?

Tobi Tip 8

So if you want to be on the cusp of what is happening in the the design industry in the way of colors and trends, if you want to have my REAL techniques for designing client’s home (and my own) that you can use in your own home or for your clients, and if you want to learn how to design interiors that are magazine-worthy the way top design professionals do…DO NOT miss joining me in Dallas in March for my Design from A to Z live event.

Tobi Tip 9

This course is for Designers and Design Lovers. It is for beginners and professionals. And unlike my creativeLIVE online courses (which are fab by the way), you are there with me LIVE and in person getting your questions answered by me and getting to interact with me and the other designers and design lovers at the event. You’ll be surprised at how much you learn from each other too. Tobi Tip 10

So what are you waiting for? Sign up for Design from A to Z today. We are going to have a ball living and breathing all things design from morning ’til night! We’ll be at the gorgeous and newly renovated Stoneleigh Hotel but space is limited, so grab your seat TODAY! Or tell your honey it’s the perfect Valentine’s gift. (hint! hint!)

I’ll see you there!

Design Tips with P. Allen Smith

Posted by


I spent the day recording a little “Tobi TV” with design tips for my amazing friend P. Allen Smith‘s television show. Or I should say shows…he has several.


If you don’t know my talented friend Allen, you should. He is one of America’s top gardening and landscaping experts. Plus he’s an author of several fantastic books, is a great cook, has a knack for decorating and is just an all-around talented guy.

And I am thrilled to once again be appearing on several episodes with him starting this September bringing my top interior design tips to his viewers across the nation.


Today we recorded segments on everything from hot design trends, to fun with paint, to showcasing your collections and heritage pieces. We pretty much covered it all!


It was an action packed day including wardrobe changes, camera crews, script ad-libbing  and photo styling. Plus we threw in a bit of horsing around to keep things fun.


So stay tuned for air dates for these fun and informative segments with P. Allen Smith on all things design.

And if you want to learn my top design tips, techniques and secrets for creating gorgeous and functional interiors in a work-shop, hands-on environment, join me in person for my signature event–Design from A to Z. Learn more about it and all of my FAB events for this Fall right here. We have an amazing line-up and can’t wait for you to join in the Design fun.

d350ae0cefde11e281cb22000a1f9a0a_7We just wrapped an AMAZING session of my Designer MBA event where 30 women from around the country came on site in Little Rock, for 3 life and business-changing days with my team and me.


As much as I love inspiring people to create gorgeous designs in my A to Z course, I think Designer MBA is the one that gets me most excited. Knowing that these creative women will finally start charging what they are worth, working with their ideal clients, building dynamic brands, and creating the business of their dreams thrills me to no end.

If you are dying to come to Designer MBA, we will be announcing the dates early next week for the next session that is coming this November, so you will want to stay tuned to my blog and social media sites like Facebook and Twitter for the big announcement!


And if it’s Design from A to Z you are interested in, so you can create gorgeous interiors for yourself or your clients, we are already selling tickets to that event here. And will be announcing our exciting guest speakers and partners for that event in the coming days as well. It’s definitely going to be an exciting Fall for our attendees, my team and me.

And before we even get to those big announcements, I have a free telecall this Monday, July 22nd at 1:00pm CST, to tell you all about several brand-new additions to my Mastermind Consulting Group, which is my year-long coaching and mentoring program for designers, manufacturers, and creatives that want to take their businesses to the next level. To join me on the FREE informational call, register here and we will send you the call-in information.

We are moving into our 4th year of mastermind in just a few months and the program just keeps getting better and better. So if you are thinking about joining Mastermind, hop on the call Monday and hear all the details and exciting new additions. I can hardly wait until then to spill the beans!


We have listened to our members and we are upping the ante on content, speakers, milestones and accountability features and much, much more. And if you join Mastermind, you get to come to my Designer MBA event for FREE! What a great value that is!!

And just for being on my FREE call on Monday, I will give you my “Tobi’s Top 5 Authentic Sales Strategies” during the call. These are tried and true tips that are helping creatives be more profitable by selling their services without being sales-y. Plus as an added bonus, I will email you following the call with my 3 Biggest Business Boosters that every small business needs to know to stay relevant and profitable in this new economy.

So lots of ways for you to join me in the coming days, weeks, and months in our events beginning with my totally FREE telecall this Monday at 1:00pm CST. So again, to register for the call, sign up here.

And I can’t wait to see you on that call or at a Tobi Fairley signature event really soon!

I just wrapped an AMAZING session of my Design Camp A to Z today. I think this was our best camp content EVER thanks in part to our fabulous special guests. After almost 3 years, our camps still keep getting better and better!

I promise to tell you all about our event here on the blog in the next few days. But first, while I rest and recoup from all the design fun, I thought I would leave you with this yummy space to enjoy by our friends John and Jason from Madcap Cottage that joined in our Design Camp fun!

With all that delicious color you probably aren’t surprised that I’m in “Madcap Love”!

See you soon! xo,
