Art & Design Events…

  • It’s Nesting Month at Apartment Therapy!
    • This month we will be focusing on getting the apartment back into shape as the hot induced lethargy wears off
    • Next Month:
      I’ve Got Color!
      The Fall Colors Contest

      Color is powerful part of interior design, but few feel comfortable using it. We will be looking for bold, complex and totally cool rooms that employ the use of color on walls, textiles or objects.
