trends seminar February 10
A seminar focusing on the hottest interior design and home building trends is scheduled 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on Friday, February 10. Participants will be exposed to information about the newest design trends, textures, finishes, colors, and their uses.
Those who are planning to build a new home or remodel an existing home will benefit from the insights to be offered by a panel of experts who understand the array of decisions that home building or remodeling entail. The seminar will take place at the Middle Tennessee Home Builders Association (HBAMT) headquarters in Brentwood.
Those planning to sell their present home will also benefit from knowing what the experts believe will help sell a home, by adding value to the home without unnecessary expense.
The five-hour event will include plenty of time for questions and answers. Lunch is provided.
