Real estate agents new on the scene and those with years of experience gathered on March 4, 2020, at the Houston Design Center to learn about new design trends from Pamela O’Brien of Pamela Hope Designs. Pamela and various showroom leaders shared the latest in interior design trends and how locals can tap into design resources to best position homes on the market. Of course, these same tips can certainly be used by those just wanting to revitalize a home’s look or complete a full remodel. Participating showrooms include James Craig Furnishings, Thorntree Natural Stone & Fine Porcelain, Kitchen & Bath Concepts and MAI Memorial Antiques & Interiors.
“I was thrilled with the turnout,” Pamela said. “Despite a somewhat gloomy day, we had a large group of interested and engaged real estate and lending professionals. Everyone was eager to learn more about trends in interior design and take-aways they could use in helping their buyers and sellers.”
Of special interest at the Thorntree visit is the new, thin porcelain tile that is available in large sizes. It mimics the look of expensive, rare stone and can be overlaid on existing old counter tops. What a great way to update a dated kitchen!
Everyone loved the swivel chairs at James Craig Furnishings and realize that these chairs are great answers for today’s open floor plans. (Check out the 3992-01SW Swivel Chair by Lee Industries that’s available through James Craig Furnishings in shown in our “Leather and Fringe in Home Design” blog post.)
We extend a special thanks to our sponsors Robin Hargrove & Elizabeth Rankin Rice of First United Mortgage Group and Old Republic Title, pictured above at MAI.
Below are a few photos from the tour of all four showrooms and our wonderful guests.
