Special features from the Edmonton Fall Home Show include sustainable living at The Greener Side, ideas for a mini ski lodge at Home on the Hill and design decisions with Jennifer Woch of Edmonton by House of J Interior Design.

Design Decisions will model three furnished and decorated rooms that feature three different interior design styles. One will illustrate a graffiti style, while another will feature Mid-Century Modern. The third room will be concocted in a Scandinavian flavor.

The room layouts are a starting point for bigger conversations with show visitors about how to refine a design style they love.

“People can see a particular style all together. But in reality, when you put a piece together, you can borrow elements from other looks. Your home can fit your personality while still being on-trend,” she says. “If you like something and it’s not trending, or you’re mixing two or three different trends, go for it.”

Woch has already shared his expertise with Edmonton’s home salon audience. There’s a thirst for information on trends, the latest paint colors and what’s coming in the future.

“I always say if they don’t know what trend is resonating with them, they should go to Pinterest or Houzz and start collecting. A common theme should come up and if they can’t see it, they could hire an interior designer to help them figure it out,” she says.

When Woch visits clients’ homes for consultations, she goes straight to their closet.

“I see the colors and styles they like. It doesn’t always translate into the house, but it shows personality,” she says. “A designer can help guide people and refine those tastes and flavors.”

The best design, regardless of trend, is when someone can step out of a mold and be true to what they love. When people literally gasp and say, “Oh, I really like that, but I’m scared to do it.”

“That’s what you should do. The stuff that sings to your soul,” she says.

The Design Decisions feature is on display throughout the three-day home show at the Edmonton Expo Center, open Friday, October 14 from noon to 9 p.m., Saturday, October 15 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, October 16. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the door or at a discount online at edmontonfallhomeshow.com
