September 29 - October 1, 2017
Here's the Plan:
Friday Night at 6:30pm -
You're welcome to arrive and check in to your Boutique Hotel Room any time after 3pm. We've booked your room at Glendalia at 11 Village Square in Glendale, OH. Make yourself comfortable, and relax. We've got everything ready for you. Click here to read a little about this historic boutique hotel.
Take a short walk around the square to Piccolo Wine Room at 6:30pm.
Join us as we 'UnWined' for the evening with wine tasting, nibbles, and connecting with friends. We'll learn a bit about each other, and the redesign plans for the weekend.
Saturday at 9am -
Another short walk to A Village Gift Shop and Agricola Redesign Studio Training (ARTS) at 3 Village Square, for a quick course in Interior Redesign & Color. We'll have coffee, fruit & bagels to start the day.
Feel free to bring any photos of "troubling rooms" in your home. Classroom time will cover a few basics before we head out for a Hands-On Redesign in a local home. You're going to be amazed at how this process works in any decorating style.
We will have a lite lunch before traveling to the Interior Redesign home. Bring "inside shoes" to change into for the hands-on redesign (like clean gym shoes) so you can be involved in the creative change. Wear clothes you can move in, like yoga or active wear, because we'll be moving furniture, hanging artwork, and accessorizing to give this home a complete makeover.
Afterward, we'll head back to the hotel so you can clean-up before our Dinner at the Culinary Studio (just like TV only better ... we'll eat what we create with their help).
6pm Cooking Class at Culinary Studio
We bet you've never had a cooking class like this one. The chef is welcoming and helpful, and you can do as much, or as little, as you like. We'll sit down to a wonderful meal, with a yummy dessert, and a few bottles of wine. Lots of fun & laughter happen at this Culinary Studio.
Sunday at 10am -
Go ahead and sleep-in on Sunday morning ... or get up and take a walk ... it's your time. We'll meet at 10am at A Village Gift Shop and ARTS Studio for a morning of Resources & Secrets that Professionals use in their own homes. You will learn a few tips on accessorizing and creating interesting mantels, dining tables, and more.
We've got to a 'Special Vendor' to give you deals since you're our new friend and redesigner, after your experience on Saturday at the interior redesign home. This will be a Lunch & Learn, so you can gather as much info as you want.
Historic Tour 1 to 2pm
Did you know that Glendale was a "Planned Community" in the mid-1800's. You'll love seeing the old historic homes and the beautiful garden landscapes. We might have a surprise or two along the way.
Hugs Goodbye -2:30pm
We'll wrap-up the weekend by 2:30 pm, so you can begin to make your trip home. We hope to see you again in December for the Chicago Magnificent Mile Retreat.
