Next week’s Fall Southern Home & Garden Show sponsored by Stock Building Supply will feature the work of four interior design pros at an exhibit called Dueling Designers. A great new show feature, Dueling Designers is a friendly and fun competition where everyone wins, especially local charities.
Interior designers from Bogari, ID Studio Interiors, The Galleries of Brian Brigham and SH Designs each will tackle a 15-foot by 15-foot space, putting their best ideas forward in a design competition that will benefit The Meyer Center, Susan G. Komen Foundation, US Green Building Council’s Veterans Assistance Program and the American Cancer Society. Visitors to the Sept. 28-30 show at TD Convention Center can ‘vote’ for their favorite design vignette by making a donation to the designer’s chosen charity.
For Bogari, the goal is to create sophisticated, elegant, yet comfortable living space by mixing textures and finishes and adding an unexpected twist ofcolor, according to owner and lead designer Ivet Ivanona. “Our design promotes a sleek, spacious and simple environment for family and guests to enjoy total relaxation,” Ivanova says.
At the ID Studio Interiors vignette, visitors will get a peek at what designer and co-owner Amy Emery has done in her own home. Design elements include: fun pillows that add color, texture, and pattern; a Persian Rug with rich colors and pattern grounding the room; a distressed and reclaimed wood coffee table; and Mid Century modern inspirited chairs and accessories.
“We’ve utilized brands and designs that we recommend to our clients,” said ID Studio Interiors Principal Kim Jackson. “A cozy rich paint color, local art and a fireplace as a focal point create a livable feeling for friends, family and pets.”
The Galleries of Brian Brigham describes its design space as ‘new age meets vintage with an industrial flair’. “Our design is a departure from what you typically see at The Galleries of Brian Brigham,” said owner and designer Brian Brigham Lehman. “It’s an unexpected look that you can have a lot of fun with.”
SH Designs also will offer a new perspective, designing a study that is ‘old but new’ and includes masculine and feminine touches. “Staying timeless with neutrals, we’ve also added in a color most people would stay away from,” said owner and lead designer Sandy Hankins. “And repurposed things are my deal, so we’ll use a mix of interesting items.”
In addition to the design booths, our designers will host a Designers Sample Sale on the show floor offering at or below wholesale
pricing on furniture and home accessories. I hope you will make plans to attend the Fall Southern Home & Garden Show next weekend at TD Convention Center in Greenville. For more show information and a list of exhibitors, visit www.HBAofGreenville.com.
