Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) November 4, 2004
Calling all of New York CityÂs style-conscious but design challenged: there is finally hope for your loft, in-town apartment, townhouse or condo! Interior designer and author of City Living: Creative Ideas For the New Urban Home (Rockport), Sharne Algotsson, will be in the Big Apple during the month of November to share her high-end dÃ©cor secrets with everyday people wondering just how to make their space look fit for a celebrity. ItÂs all part of her ÂTwist in the CityÂ four-city media tour which kicked off in Philadelphia last month.
The idea behind ÂTwist in the CityÂ is to take SharneÂs upscale interior design knowledge to the city streets where everyday people have common, in-town living, design dilemmas. The media tour was conceived to answer the cry of suburbanites-turned-urbanites who have found themselves a part of the gentrification trend, which is taking over in even some of the most unlikely cities in the United States.
The media tour is named for the hip furniture, lifestyle and design boutique called Twist in Philadelphia, PA, which she co-owns. It is nestled in the heart of a cozy and trendy district in Center City on Pine Street. After the Philadelphia show, Sharne will visit New York in November, Los Angeles in December and a select city in the south, yet to be determined, in the New Year.
Sharne will give your viewers, readers and listeners tips on
-Modernizing and upgrading older structures
-How to ÂtameÂ large spaces
-How to make small spaces look larger with furniture
-Using lighting, color and mirrors to manipulate space
-How to select the right furniture to create the right feeling in your home
-Tapping into the senses: using color, aromas and fragrances to create a mood
-How to make your place look like youÂve spent a million, but you really havenÂt
-How to keep your home fresh and free from the outside world
Sharne has been featured on HG TV Network, African Design in American Homes, The Discovery NetworkÂs Christopher Lowell Show, B. Smith with Style and HG TVÂs Design Basics and Smart Design.
