Event Details


Rachel Cannon Lewis

Rachel Cannon Lewis, Licensed Interior Designer

CEO and Principal Interior Designer of SoHaus Interior Design


Design Confidential is an interior design workshop created by licensed Interior Designer, Rachel Cannon Lewis, to show you how the pros make it look so effortless.  Whether you're a design junkie and want to learn how to improve on your natural talent, or a homeowner looking for a way to sort through the details - this workshop is for you! 


In this workshop, you will learn how to:


-Trust your own choices, without relying on the feedback and input of friends and family

-Choose color, fabrics, and finish materials with confidence

-Train your eye to detect inspiration in everyday life

-Embrace the fundamentals of the science of color so you can break away from the stand-by list of

neutral, safe, and boring color palettes

-Create a killer design concept during the workshop, which you can take with you to kick start your  next design project

-Free yourself from the tired ideas on DIY and Home Improvement shows, and learn how to create a timeless interior that isn’t tied to trends and fads

-Seek ideas from places other than design magazines and websites

Professional Interior Designers have the confidence to make hundreds of decisions on a daily basis, for multiple projects.  Wouldn't it be nice to know how we do it?  Many of you have asked me before, "How do you KNOW that something is right for a project?"  The truth is that a lot of what I do is intuitive, but there is a proven method to getting the best results possible for your project. (Hint: it starts with trusting your instincts!)  I want to show YOU how to turn down the volume on the external noise and opinions, and turn up the volume on your own decisiveness and preferences


1. Finding Inspiration


Wouldn't it be nice to know where to look for ideas, OTHER than on DIY television shows and home design magazines?  Your home should reflect your lifestyle, not be a knock-off of something you saw on tv or read in a magazine.  Designers find inspiration literally EVERYWHERE, and I want to teach you how to train your eye to see the world the way designers do.


2.  The Fundamentals of Color


There is a reason we all love neutrals so much:  they require very little courage for the commitment involved in using them.  However, designers have a knack for knowing how to choose the RIGHT neutral, and then work in bold color to reflect a clients' personality.  We make it look so easy, don't we?  It's time to break free from the standby list of neutral colors and really learn how to work with actual color.  I'm going to show you how it's done!


3.  Organizing Inspiration


How do designers filter the choices available to them?  Many homeowners dive right into a project without properly organizing their thoughts into a plan of action, only to find themselves completely overwhelmed with options at every turn.  In this workshop, you will not only see how we pull it together, but you will actually MAKE your own project inspiration board with the help of my "Camp Counselors" (more on that in just a sec!), using paint, flooring, fabric, and finish samples, as well as my arsenal of fashion and design magazines (remember, inspiration is everywhere!).  You'll be armed with knowledge and a plan by the time you leave the workshop!


4.  Identifying Your Personal Style


The final segment of this workshop will give you the discretion of a professional designer to know when a design trend will work in your life, and when a trend has become a fad (and when you should say no).  Avoid costly mistakes by using insider tips as you plan your next project.  You don't want to be the person with the "newly finished project" that is "so last year."  I'm going to show you how to be ahead of the trends, securely confident in your choices.


And as if that's not enough... 


I have assembled a dynamite team of design professionals who will be joining us as speakers and "Camp Counselors" for the day.  Each of these incredibly talented and experienced designers will be giving us their unique perspective on the different topics of our workshop.  Visit the SoHaus Blog for information on each one of these great guest speakers.  (http://sohaus.blogspot.com/search?q=meet+the+experts)
You will be learning from not only me, but other talented design professionals,
about the REAL process we use to create stunning interiors.
You'll have the unique opportunity to speak to them one-on-one in our hands-on approach to teaching!
Seating is limited, so sign up early!  As a registrant for this design workshop, you will be entered to win a copy of Barbara Barry's book, Around Beauty;  and Kelly Wearstler's book, Hue. We're so excited to be hosting this event, that we're also throwing in a Sherwin Williams color fan deck, a tote bag, and lots of other design goodies - all of this for just $300.00!  Similar design workshops can cost as much as $2,000.00, and working with a designer can cost thousands more...This is the one workshop that will change everything!
