5 Reasons Why You Need to Attend Craft MNL’s DIY Interior Styling Session

Style your home on your own just in time for the New Year!


A new year means a fresh slate— to hope for better things to come and welcome change with a renewed perspective. Homeowners also take this opportunity to beautify their spaces—whether it’s going for a new color palette or buying new furniture pieces.

If it’s your first time to decorate and style the home, we’re sure that you have tons of questions and concerns! Luckily, team Craft MNL is starting 2016 with a DIY Interior Styling Session on January 9 (Saturday) from 2pm to 5pm. It is interior styling made simple so you can work on your space on your own and give it that distinct personal touch that only you can do.

So why do you need to spend one Saturday afternoon with our friends from Craft MNL and other homeowners? Here are five reasons why:

It is designed with new homeowners in mind

If you’ve just moved into your home, we’re betting that it’s a blank space waiting to be spruced up with your choice of furniture and color. But how do you make the right choices? What you will learn from the workshop will be extremely useful to your styling decisions. Those who want to give their homes a makeover are also welcome to join the session!

It will give you more confidence when it comes to styling your home

Since this is something new to you, you might be second-guessing your calls on materials to buy and use. This session aims to give you that much needed boost as you discover different design elements and learn practical tips to make your space your own.

It covers different topics to help you come up with a vision for your space

Some of the things that the workshop will cover include: color and concept, texture and pattern, warmth and lighting, and details and balance.

It will teach you how to create a moodboard and kick-start your home styling process

It’s not enough that you know about the concepts and how to apply each! You also need to create a vision that you want to achieve for your space. During the workshop, you will be given a chance to put together a moodboard that you also get to take home after the session.

Each participant goes home with a DIY styling starter kit complete with a notebook and measuring tools too.

To be able to work on the moodboard, participants are requested to bring additional magazines, swatches, and design pegs.

It gives you an opportunity to work with an interior designer

The fun workshop will be headed by interior designer Sharlyn Javellana-Nadal who led the last interior styling session of Craft MNL. Sharlyn will be giving valuable tips and helpful reminders to help you come up with a look that you can work on for your home.

Session fee is P1,500. Should a registered participant wish to bring a companion to work on the same board, an additional fee of P750 will apply.

The workshop will be held at Craft MNL’s Makati Studio at Unit 302, 926 Pasay Road Condominium (Pamana-Languages Building), Arnaiz Avenue (Pasay Road, behind New World Hotel), Makati City.
