Just the Right Furniture Arrangement Decorating Class

Did you realize that Mother’s Day is just around the corner?  Maybe it’s a good time to start planting the seed about what might be the perfect gift for you (hint, hint).  May I suggest my upcoming Just the Right Furniture Arrangement  class at my favorite Nashville furniture store, Merridian Home Furnishings?

Merridian Home Furnishings, Nashville 


Get ready for a fun evening of learning to decorate and arrange furniture on Thursday, May 9, from 6:30 until 8:30 at the beautiful Merridian store at Franklin Road in Nashville, TN.  If you are a professional decorator or home stager, or simply a design and decor enthusiast, this class is for you!

At this workshop, you will learn how to:  put together just the right arrangement for your furnishings and art, choose just the right upholstery and fabrics to work with your existing pieces, and create perfect vignettes for every room in your home.

I will focus on helping you learn to create amazing furniture arrangements that feel “just right” for even the most challenging floor plans, how to incorporate a few on-trend pieces to make your dated space feel current, and how to use my designer secrets to create a space that will look like a million bucks (for considerably less!).

Room arrangements that feel wrong are usually what I call “architecturally dissonant.”  I will teach you my method of working with the architecture of the room to create perfectly harmonious arrangements for furnishings, art, and accessories EVERY TIME in ANY ROOM.  My insider secrets will teach you to make every room of your house peaceful, inviting, and beautiful.

Let me reiterate:  there will be no holding back during this class.  I will share all of the secrets I use with my clients  to create just the right furniture arrangement, as well as art and accessory arrangement.  There will also be great goody bags, prizes, and hor d’oerves, of course!

I’m so excited to partner with Merridian Home Furnishings for this special workshop.  One of the reasons Merridian is my favorite Nashville furniture store is because of the great people who work there!  They are knowledgable, helpful, and so down-to-earth.

    Wish it could be through the internet slso, i live in Kansas and would love to attend by long distance?

    • Kristie Barnett

      It may be possible to webcast it, I will think on that!

      • Christine

        I was going to ask the same thing, since I am in Maryland and have no plans of visiting your area. A webcast would be great!

      • Sharon

        Kristie, I, too, hope you tape this for those of us who do not live in the area but want to learn from you!

  2. Lex

    I sure hope you video tape this like you did the paint series! I would be one of the first to buy it!

  3. annie

    Sounds wonderful! Will you be taping it for us like you did the color workshop? I loved that one and I would enjoy learning from you again!

  4. Kelly Berg

    This looks amazing, Kristie! Congrats!

  5. Arell

    I wish that I lived in the area! I hope that you will film your class as you did with the “Just the Right Paint” class and offer it to us folks in other states! The house that we live in has a very awkward living room. Our furniture is from our old house and is all wrong. I would love to hear all of your advice and tips. I will keep my fingers crossed that you will offer the videos later!!

  6. Kelly

    Sounds wonderful Kristie! I did something similar a couple years ago at our design center. You will probably sell out quickly- be sure to save a couple tickets for a last minute drawing! Good luck!!

  7. Mel

    Yes! I’m sure this will sell out quickly. Too bad we’re so far away. It would be nice to pay a “yearly membership” amount and have access to the taped classes whenever we needed a refresher or replay at another time during the year. Thanks again for all the helpful information thus far!! I’ve sent my email request for an “e-consultation.”

    • Kristie Barnett

      Hi Mel,
      If you purchased the Color Workshop video, you have access to it indefinitely whenever you like. Look forward to working with you!

  8. Chez

    I would love to attend this class if I lived in-state. Please please videotape it! Also is it still possible to purchase the color workshop video people are referring to? I’ve just found you and want to learn all that I can!

  9. Donya

    Dear Kristie,
    I would have loved to come to this! Like many in the comments I live too far away. Your father-in-law told me all about your site, he went to seminary with my husband and we have enjoyed being friends with your in-laws for many years!

    I love your blog! Thank you for so much for so many amazing hints and suggestions.

    Donya Kesler
