Workshops

Our mission is to inject joy into people’s lives through the power of interior design. And our passion is to empower people to create spaces that they feel proud of and that hug them every time they walk in. To achieve this, we have created a number of online workshops, as well as in-person workshops at our Design Lab.

Featured workshops: Our signature hands-on design workshops cover the basics of design and styling. Held recurring throughout the year.

 Book ahead! We only have space for 6-10 people per workshop

 

Online workshops: Our designer mini-workshops highlight unique and fun styling opportunities alongside special days of the year.

In-Person Design Workshops Calgary

Fundamentals, Finishes, & Flatlays

 Do you have the design itch? Ready to mix things up in your home? Want to tackle those projects that have been on the ‘to do list’ since you bought the place? Tired of walking into ‘that’ room and feeling stress instead of joy? Maybe you are flipping a house and want to make sure the finishes you choose will attract the widest audience!

Styled Vignette

How do those HGTV shows curate such beautiful centerpieces, or perfectly position coffee table books with flowers and a sweets bowl (do people even use that sweets bowl?)? What about those entry table items that welcome you in and look like they were plucked out of a magazine?

This workshop is a hands-on learning experience teaching the key fundamentals of vignette styling for creating moments in your home.
