At Paint with Flair, instructors kick down the barriers that traditionally stand between beginners and a paintbrush, starting by creating a comfortable environment. Couples on dates, coworkers looking to bond, or friends out on the town sip on BYOB drinks and snacks as they loosen up and get acquainted with the provided materials (classes for kids and non-drinkers are also available on the schedule). Teachers get groups chatting as they take them on a step-by-step walk through the brushstrokes, color selection, and witchcraft necessary to whip up their own fetching painting, whether it be a reproduction of Van Gogh’s Starry Night or an original design.
The Store for Furniture & Decor stocks an extensive selection of quality household adornments from designers such as Broyhill, Ashley, and Gramercy Park Designs. Refit guest quarters with new bedroom furnishings such as bed frames ($39+) or bunk beds ($229+) to hold up flat slumbering surfaces so dreamers can construct level fences for sheep to jump over. Accent pieces add an eclectic tough to stodgy chambers with drink-holding end tables ($99+), zebra-print vanity benches ($129+), and quaint jewelry armoires ($199+) that hide baubles in their drawers and folding cabinet doors. Living rooms and sparse dens welcome reclining furniture such as the Ashley leather home-theater recliner ($599) so homeowners can lounge while watching TV or listening to phone books on tape.
