Tune in for Leslie's Weekly Design Series

What is Wallcovering Wednesday?

Wallcovering Wednesday is a weekly Youtube series originally curated by Leslie purely for the purpose of practicing her design skills. After a rep from Sanderson sent gorgeous new samples of their latest wallcovering line, she looked at one and said "this paper is so stunning I could build a whole room out of it." Never letting a good idea go to waste, LHD created the series as a way to hone her craft. Each week, she chooses a wallcovering to feature and builds a scheme for a different room with furnishes & finishes to highlight the paper. 

What is T/NAT?

T/NAT is an acronym for Thing / Not a Thing, a term coined by Leslie about a decade ago as a communication tool for clients. Her first book, Remodeling Your House Without Killing Your Spouse, features a homework section to help clients explain their décor and design style preferences using images from magazines and the internet. Clients are encouraged to curate a collection of styles & rooms that they enjoy and find pleasing to the eye. Next, clients curate a collection that is a NOT a Thing. 

You can tune in for a weekly T/NAT post every Tuesday on Leslie's Facebook page and join in on the subjective fun for each query. (The commentary is lively and the responses for each "Bonus Points" post are a GenXer's dream!)
