Interior designer Yasmin Chopin would like to thank everyone who attended her four free interior design meetings at The George during March 2013.
Yasmin says, “Interiors enthusiasts came from far and wide (including Wellingborough and Peterborough) and many people came to more than one meeting.”
Here are just some of the subjects touched upon:
- carpets, curtains, blinds and lighting
- room layouts and flexible furniture
- being brave with colour and understanding neutrals
- the best colours to use in a kitchen
- how to deal with a dark hallway
- using texture to create interest
- where to buy interesting accessories
- using eco-friendly materials
- building your own home
- space-saving ideas
A number of people had never been to The George before although many had passed it on their way through the village. “It was a real hit so I am sure our local will enjoy new business as a result”, Yasmin said.
After the meetings, Yasmin conducted a short survey and, without exception, everyone enjoyed the chat and would like to do it again. She received a request to run some sessions during the morning for people who couldn’t get away in the evening so she would welcome more comments on this. To contact Yasmin, and to get on the list for her Talking Interiors newsletter, email email@example.com.
You are invited to come along to The George and chat with Spaldwick’s Interior Designer Yasmin Chopin. Yasmin will be offering four free sessions on every Tuesday during March, from 7.00 to 8.30pm. You can come and chat about everything and anything to do with house and home interiors. The sessions will cover any specific subject of your choice, and Yasmin will be happy to share her experience. So, please put the dates in your diary – 5th March, 12th March, 19th March and 26th March.
