Welcome to HomeWorkshop.com
Thanks for stopping by on our inaugural day!
HomeWorkshop.com is a vibrant, community site for people who are into home decorating and design. So if you dream in paint colors, hyperventilate while strolling through IKEA, or if you can’t wait to hit the garage sales to find your next piece to refurbish, you’re in the right place.
I call us “Design Junkies.” HomeWorkshop is where we share our designs and creations, and where we inspire one another to make our homes wonderful, comfortable, uplifting and personal spaces for ourselves and the people we love. I’m Chief Design Junkie, Kathy Barlow. You can learn more about me and the site here.
HomeWorkshop is built in a blog style so that each day you’ll read a fresh post covering design and decorating basics, trends, how-to’s, and interviews with designers, artists and craftspeople.
The unique element and soul of the site is the weekly Challenge. Each Wednesday you’ll see an inspiration project around a given theme. Some will be simple, others more involved. Visitors will have 4 weeks to post their photo and description of their project. Then we all get to see and give feedback on each other’s work. Read more about our Challenges here.
If you haven’t frequented a blog before, the beauty is in the interaction. With each daily post and with our Challenges you are encouraged to add your comment to the group discussion. It’s fun and educational.
So fellow Design Junkies, come on into HomeWorkshop with me! I can’t wait for us all to meet, to have lively conversations, to drink in our designs and to see what we’re doing with our homes. Grab a cup of coffee, your paint chips and your colored pencils. I know that we will inspire one another to do great things.
