    Home. The definition of what makes a house a home may not have changed, but the disruption caused by the global health crisis has upended how we live in, feel about and use our homes. As designers, you play a vital role in helping your clients transform underutilized spaces and incorporate colors and materials that help them create a sense of well-being in their homes. This course will explore the dynamics impacting residential design in the COVID era, identify the role that paint technologies can play in helping promote better indoor air quality, review how intrinsic color is in the wellness discussion, and identify design elements that harness the power of nature to promote physical and emotional well-being. Join Shane Jones, Designer Account Executive for Sherwin-Williams, as she presents this webinar! A question-and-answer segment will follow.

    Not all designers follow a straight and narrow path to their career. In fact, many of the most gifted designers explore various creative genres before finding their true calling. Similarly, many interior designers find success and gratification in the design of products and special events. True creators often find a singular focus simply too limiting.  This panel explores the diverse careers of four successful designers and in doing so reveals the true essence of creativity itself. Join Mike Ragan, Celia Barrett, David Santiago and Gary Inman for this entertaining and informative discussion.
