It’s time again for a biggest home and garden uncover of a year: The 16th annual Low Country Home Garden Show takes place Jan. 29-31.
The weekend eventuality facilities a latest in interiors and outside vital trends, and guest can try some-more than 4,000 block feet of gardens, landscapes, pool and spas, cabinetry, countertops, interior pattern displays, DIY seminars and more.
Guests will also have a possibility to accommodate luminary Jeff Lewis during 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Jan. 30.
Lewis is a eminent interior engineer and star of Bravo’s “Flipping Out,” that facilities Lewis’ singular poise of flipping houses. He has some-more than 20 years of pattern and restoration knowledge and is famous to have grown some of a many desired homes in Los Angeles.
In 2013, he also launched a paint line called Jeff Lewis Color that offers a palette of 32 pale neutral shades.
And regulating those neutral colors, Lewis says, is a simplest approach for newbies to get started on DIY paint projects in their possess homes.
“My biggest square of recommendation is to go neutral,” he says. “Painting is an easy plan to do on your own, though we aren’t going to wish to re-paint repeatedly. A neutral tone will yield a backdrop for a categorical event, that is your furniture, art and accessories. You can move in pops of tone with accent pillows, throws and rugs. Those are easier and reduction disorderly to switch out down a road.”
And if we are a some-more seasoned home designer, Lewis can assistance with those worse questions, too. His knowledge has taken him opposite a country, and he says a few things come to mind when asked what projects make him proud.
“Getting to pattern a House Beautiful Kitchen of a Year in Rockefeller Center was a privilege,” he says. “I also recently finished and sole a residence on Gramercy Place (in Los Angeles), that was featured on ‘Flipping Out.’ That was a special plan and a home that we loved. When we spend as many time as we do on renovations, any home becomes special.”
Lewis admits he’s never been to Savannah, though “it’s always been on my bucket list. we am looking brazen to saying a design and experiencing a culture. And we hear we make good cocktails.”
If we are informed with Lewis’ critical appearance on his show, we don’t need to worry that we will run into that chronicle of him during a expo.
“This might be startling to most, though we indeed like people — generally with large personalities. we find it engaging to accommodate and speak to people from opposite tools of a country. There is a moderated QA during a commencement of a event, and afterwards we open adult to questions from a audience. No doubt is off limits, and it’s never dull.”
