Quick-Step’s designer partner, LA-based interior designer/style expert Erinn Valencich, will be conducting FREE Decorating & Design Seminars to teach consumers how to “stay within a budget and still create beautiful living spaces quickly, easily, and affordably”.  These free events are co-sponsored by Quick-Step and its retail partner Avalon Carpet Tile & Flooring.  The first seminar runs from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm at the Avalon Carpet Tile & Flooring retail store in Cherry Hill, NJ on Saturday, October 13.  The second seminar will be held from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm at the Avalon Carpet Tile & Flooring retail store in Deptford, NJ on Sunday, October 14.

Attendees are encouraged to bring photos of a room in their home that they would like to refresh.  During the seminar, Valencich will be working one-on-one with attendees to give them FREE, personalized design advice on these rooms.  Also during each seminar, a drawing will take place for a FREE Quick-Step floor (up to 250 square feet).  The winner may select any flooring product from the entire Quick-Step flooring line. 

Although consumers continue to be value conscious this year, they are still looking for ways to express their personal creativity and make their homes more beautiful – while staying within a budget,” advises Erinn Valencich, Los Angeles-based interior designer, style expert, and Quick-Step designer partner.”

“One of the most popular national mainstream trends right now is the ‘room lift’,” adds Valencich.  “Rather than trading up to bigger, better homes or embarking on expensive, whole-house remodels, today’s consumers simply want new ideas on how to ‘refresh’ their homes – quickly, easily, and affordably.”

During these FREE Decorating & Design Seminars, Valencich will walk attendees through effective design techniques to achieve “big style through small changes”.  These effective “room lift” changes demonstrate how to easily and affordably breathe new life and design flair into any room.  Valencich will provide practical advice on the use of color as well as several other key design principles.  Her room lift tips include easy, affordable DIY changes that are within the skill level of most homeowners.

The seminar is FREE, but space is limited, so attendees should register today at rsvp@avaloncarpettile.com.  Questions about the event may be asked by emailing rsvp@avaloncarpettile.com or by calling the Cherry Hill location 856-489-4996 or the Deptford location 856-812-6120.
