11am  – Built-Ins…  Where to Begin?

By designer & craftsman Larry Northrop

Larry Northrop has been in the woodworking business for 40 years.  He has designed hundreds of built-ins, from custom kitchens and space saving solutions, all the way to cabinetry and desks in the executive office at the White House.  Learn what you should know before you begin, and a few tricks from the trade.  Please bring any questions you have.  Larry will make time to answer them.

There are all kinds of space saving solutions you can utilize with built ins.

This built-in is a white board, a table, and a Murphy bed!

12pm  -  The Psychology of Color Selection

By designer Denise Willard

Are you looking to update the colors inside your home this spring, but are overwhelmed by all the choices?  Do you want to learn some of the secrets professionals use in selecting just the right colors?  If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then this talk is for you.

Learn about the principles behind the psychology of color.  Learn why red is most often used in dining rooms and blue in bedrooms.  Learn how your body reacts to certain hues and how a local design professional uses this knowledge in selecting the right colors for her clients.

How does this room make you feel? Design by Denise Willard.
