Design Talks: Planning for Your Home - Creating Liveable Living Rooms
Thursday, January 13, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
You're invited to the the first Design Talk of 2011: Planning for Your Home - Creating A Liveable Living Room! Join us as celebrated designer, Karl Lohnes, inspires us to enliven our living space!
The living room is the life of your home: this space can "double" as an office or a home theatre centre, and it is more than likely your primary entertainment venue. In short your living room is where you live - it should be lively, welcoming, and reflect your sense of style! Join us for our first Design Talk of 2011 when Karl Lohnes, Homes Columnist for Metro News and designer with This Small Space and Style At Home will help us to make our living rooms more liveable! Karl will teach us the "tricks of the trade" as he helps us learn to match patterns and colours in a room, measure a space for the right sized sofa and area rug, hang and display artwork effectively, find the right paint colour for your walls, and introduce us to the basics of window treatments. After the talk, don't miss the opportunity to have your decor dilemmas solved by this celebrated designer in our fun Q&A!
