Barbara’s Picks has declared October Love Your Home & Lifestyle Month. After all, loving your home and lifestyle, is loving yourself! For one day only, Saturday, October 15, 2016, more than 30 design and lifestyle vendors will assemble at Allstate Appliances at 15250 N. Hayden Rd. in Scottsdale to showcase all their products and services to the public. Known as Barbara’s Picks, each of these vendors are hand selected by Barbara Kaplan, an industry advocate and one of the valley’s leading interior designers. The public is invited to meet the owners and key consultants for expert answers to every design question from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. From ceiling to flooring—this event has you covered!

There will be live presentations, demonstrations and industry experts, giving advice and guidance. Interior designers will also be available for individual consultations. Bring your design projects to experts for answers. Barbara Kaplan will also be on hand to offer her own advice and tips.

For those in attendance, vendors will have special event offers for products and services.

Throughout the event there will be drawings for some amazing prizes. A grand prize valued at more than $1,000 will be drawn Saturday at 4 p.m. You do not need to be present to win.

Surprise visits from local celebrities are also planned.

A “must attend” event when planning to build, remodel or improve your home and lifestyle. There is no cost to the public.

“I and other professional designers admire and work with these companies. They are reliable, quality companies that I have confidence recommending to you (my name is on the site!),” said Kaplan. “They are picked because they are the best of the best. After 30+ years in the design industry, I can recommend with confidence these vendors who provide luxury products and services. They have proven themselves.”

Barbara’s Picks provides a Resource Directory to help you find the “best of the best” professionals in design and lifestyle.
