Imagine, Dream, Explore

December 4, 2017

I briefly mentioned last week that K. Renee is kicking off its first School of Styling workshop in a series of six home-related sessions.

We are super excited about this!   Not only do we enjoy helping you style your home but we also want each of you to feel more confident and comfortable changing it up yourself now and again.  It’s our job as stylists to help you Imagine, Dream and Explore.  


Here is the upcoming schedule of events...

  • December 7, 2017:  One Room, Three Different Ways
  • February 8, 2018: Unexpected Ways to Add Interest To Your Space
  • March 29, 2018: 5 Ways to Take Your Home From Winter to Spring
  • June 7, 2018:  11 Tips for Effortless Outdoor Living and Entertaining
  • August 9, 2018: Create Your Best #Shelfie: Tips for Styling Shelves
  • October 11, 2018: 12 Hacks for an Elegant, Yet Stress-Free Holiday Entertaining


Yes, our first workshop is this Thursday evening, and there is still time to register for this fun-filled interactive styling session.    Kelli and her talented team of stylists, Stacie Schulz, Lisa Wood, and Gina Ross will be tapping into their creativity and will demonstrate how to create three very different looks using the same foundational elements.

 Sofa and Chairs

In each version, they will use three consistent pieces of upholstery.    Now, I don’t know for sure, but I am guessing the three (one sofa and two chairs) will be a light neutral.  (Shocker!)  But that doesn’t mean you can’t achieve the same flexibility with a darker neutral (grey, tan, brown) or even with a classic pattern.    

You’ve heard us say once, if not twice, that is is always a good idea to choose foundational pieces that are neutral and timeless because it gives you the freedom to play with the accessories and less expensive items that surround your basics.    

 Accessories

We are out to prove that you can change the whole look of a room without replacing your core furniture every three or four years.  It’s all about changing up the placement and layers (rug, art, pillows, throws, accessories.)   Just look at the drama a new rug has the potential to create...

Rugs

You might be asking...

Why on earth do I need to change my decor up once I get it done?    

 

Well, we naturally do it anyway.    We tend to want our homes to reflect the different seasons.   Right now, most of our homes have been transformed into a holiday oasis.    Come January; we are going to tear all that down and either put it back exactly like it was...or get a little creative and change things up a bit.

And I think it's important to get used to changing things up now and again, even if it's still working.    It's an extreme case I know, but a woman in Toronto decorated her house in 1945 and hadn't changed a thing since.

 Home that hasn't changed

While 72 years later this house seems kinda cool, in most cases a home that stays the same year after year just becomes tired, outdated and uninspired.   

 In need of an update

Making small changes to your home can help you break the bad habit of getting stuck in a rut.  (I need that.)

It also encourages BRAIN CREATIVITY (we all need that!)  A new look or pop of color might just inspire other new ideas for yourself and your home.

When the energy of your home gets tired, so do you.  It's like an old but classic suit.   Sometimes you need a new shirt, belt, or bag to help you get you excited to rock it all over again.

So join us Thursday evening and see for yourself how easy it is to breathe some new life into your home.     And another great reason to attend?  This amazing occasional chair will be present at our workshop, and one lucky attendee will be able to load it up and take it home.   

Enter to Win

Beautiful as an additional chair in your living room, bedroom or even foyer. 

We are a laid back group, so know that you will be able to enjoy a glass of wine during class and a few small bites.    Come and enjoy some refreshing new ideas and the K. Renee take on some holiday cheer.

Have a great week, and I hope to see you on Thursday evening where we will all imagine, dream and explore one room, three ways.
