Arts Coun­cil to of­fer in­te­rior de­sign classes

Record Observer - - Real Estate -

CENTREVILLE — This spring the Queen Anne’s County Arts Coun­cil will of­fer work­shops that will teach mem­bers and guests how to make over a room. Par­tic­i­pants will learn how to use the fur­nish­ings they have to give a room a cer­tain feel — cozy, for­mal, rest­ful, en­er­getic — by adding color, chang­ing the place­ment of the fur­ni­ture, adding col­or­ful pil­lows or art­work, or in­clud­ing an ac­cent wall in a con­trast­ing color.

Queen Anne’s County res­i­dent and pro­fes­sional in­te­rior de­signer Deborah Scaggiari has been dec­o­rat­ing homes through­out the Mid-At­lantic for 30 years. Her finely tuned knowl­edge of color, func­tion, and de­tail al­low her to work in a range of styles, cre­at­ing a look tai­lored to re­flect her client’s space and life­style. Whether your taste is clas­sic or mod­ern, vin­tage or rus­tic, Scaggiari will use her sense of ver­sa­til­ity to help you achieve the look you want.

Mem­bers can take one work­shop for $55 and non-mem­bers for $60 or sign up for the series, in­clud­ing a visit to Scaggiari’s house, for $335 for mem­bers and $350 non-mem­bers. And all over a glass of wine and snacks. Work­shop I — Color Your World Wed­nes­day March 22 – 6:30-8:30 p.m. $55 for mem­bers and $60 for non-mem­bers In­struc­tors: Deborah Scaggiari and Rick Stritt­mater

Talk color with the ex­perts. What color makes you feel rest­ful, en­er­getic, hun­gry? What col­ors go well with other col­ors? Do you want to fol­low the color trends or do you play it safe? Work with a color wheel and color sam­ples to ex­plore new ideas for a room in your home. Work­shop II – Feel Your Way for a New Look Wed­nes­day March 29 – 6:30-8:30 p.m. $55 for mem­bers and $60 for non-mem­bers In­struc­tor Deborah Scaggiari Ex­plore how the tex­ture of a fabric or wall­pa­per can bring your room closer the one you have pic­tured. Are your ex­ist­ing cur­tains or drapes the best win­dow treat­ment to help you achieve the look you want? Are you tak­ing the best ad­van­tage of the bones of your house, es- pe­cially an old house, such as high ceil­ings or low beams? Bring a pic­ture of the room you want to redo and start a dec­o­ra­tor’s board to as­sem­ble sam­ples and pic­tures to use when you start your ren­o­va­tion project. Work­shop III – Ev­ery Square Inch Counts Wed­nes­day – April 5 — 6:30-8:30 p.m. $55 for mem­bers $60 for non-mem­bers In­struc­tor: Deborah Scaggiari Mill­work can ei­ther add to the com­fort and func­tion­al­ity of a room or can just take up space. Should you con­sider built-ins or book­shelves? Will mold­ing add to the look you are seek­ing? Can you in­cor­po­rate the wain­scot­ing in the re­design when you pre­fer a mod­ern look?

The fur­ni­ture in my house doesn’t match. How can I use the fur­ni­ture I have? I want to use my grand­mother’s side­board. Can that fit in a re­design? Add sam­ples to your dec­o­ra­tor’s board of dif­fer­ent fin­ishes that com­ple­ment the wood fin­ishes in your home Work­shop IV – Ac­cen­tu­ate the Pos­i­tive Wed­nes­day — April 12 – 6:30- 8:30 p.m. $55 for mem­bers and $60 for non-mem­bers In­struc­tor: Deborah Scaggiari Some­times the small­est and bold­est pillow can make the other col­ors in the room pop. I want to know if I should I add a con­trast­ing color some­where in the room. How can I add in­ter­est to the items in my china closet? How should I dis­play the art­work I have? Do I need to con­sider dif­fer­ent light­ing? Learn about how the small­est items in your room can make a big dif­fer­ence. Work­shop V – Pull It All To­gether Wed­nes­day — April 19 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. $55 for mem­bers and $60 for non-mem­bers In­struc­tor: Deborah Scaggiari Now that you have de­cided on the col­ors you might like to use and the win­dow treat­ment that will best high­light the ar­chi­tec­ture of your home and con­sid­ered adding dif­fer­ent fin­ishes and ac­cent pieces, let the ex­pert show you how to ar­range your room. You will use pre­mea­sured pa­per and a tem­plate to ar­range your fur­ni­ture to cre­ate the feel you want.
