Whether you are just starting out or looking to update your space, the workshops promise to help give you some ideas and guidance during a two-hour master class featuring a panel of industry professionals from Sherwin-Williams and Porch.

The first workshop on Aug. 8 from 6 - 8 p.m. is “Starting Out: How to Plan Your Space.” Designed to teach the fundamental elements of design and help you establish a home style, the event will cover topics including understanding what balance, proportion and scale mean in a space; identifying and creating the right focal point for any floor plan or room and developing a color palette that reflects your personal style.

The second workshop on Aug. 15 from 6 - 8 p.m. is for individuals looking to update their space. “Styling Up: How to Tie Your Space Together” will include the Designer’s Rule of Three to identify key areas of focus when upgrading your home style, creating and laying out the ultimate gallery wall along with completing a room using accessories, and playing with pattern and adding bold color .

After the presentation, the design pros will host one-on-one consultations to help attendees discuss and solve their biggest design challenges.

All attendees will receive 15% off all evening in-store, plus $15 off their purchase of $75 or more at Sherwin-Williams.
