    Having completed a fashion degree and taken both color theory and interior design classes, I'd love to attend this design camp and learn more by immersing myself in this exciting bootcamp.

    I am a new designer, just got my certificate from George Brown College in Toronto, and really want the opportunity to learn and get inspired by all these amazing and talented designers!! Plus, with a 4 year old and a 3 month old, I could use a little get away in Seattle ;-)

    Going to Design Camp would be an invaluable opportunity – especially at this point in my career. I'm finishing up my masters degree, and my ultimate goal is to work in trend and design direction in the home industry! It would also be so helpful as a design blogger (emereeroad.com) since I'm already blogging about interiors and trends. This would be just the opportunity to start up my career in a field that I love! Thanks so much for hosting! :)

    I want to go to design camp because I'm in the arts, and my home doesn't reflect it… I need someone to help me find a place to start

    Onalaska WI…are you thinking where is that? lol! That is home for me. I have been decorating for 9 years but never was professionally trained. I am doing my best with what talents God gave me! I have had many clients tell me they felt like they are on an HGTV show after I am done with their homes. I would be bouncing off the wall with excitement to have an opportunity to learn from some of the best!

    Our son joking calls our house the "bomb shelter"because I have painted the walls so many times! I love to decorate but I could use some instruction, direction, and inspiration. As a recently retired high school teacher, I would love to help others design their dream spaces. Design Camp would be a dream come true.

    When an established boomer- community decided to update their sales approach with more contemporary interior designs, they decided to sell their 'older models'. Those of us (older models in our own right) who bought these lovely, but slightly tired-looking, models have considered ways to update with more contemporary ideas to match our more contemporary attitudes, and the belief in an active, vibrant life after age 60. We've just got to learn some helpful tips from the experts without the experience costing us a bundle. Ideas I could share with others here at Soleil from my Design Camp experience would be just the ticket (literally!) to our fountain of youthful design!
