April 10th – Decorate a Room Around Your Favorite Piece of Artwork
Shawna Taylor, Taylored Interiors

Art can provide the inspiration to create an environment that reflects your individual taste and personality. Your room is your ‘blank canvas’, Shawna will draw design inspiration from a favorite piece of art. Students will see how to dissect a piece of artwork to identify colors, texture, and style to create a color palette and design an entire room. Your art will look better and have a greater impact in your room when the decor “supports” the art versus “match” the art.   We will discuss ways to get inspired, support the art and get your room “Taylored” to perfectly fit you.
