Ancient Greeks looking to redecorate temples would first consult the Oracle of Delphi about whether Zeus' statue looked better in mauve or chartreuse. Get better interior-design answers with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two general-admission tickets to Home & Design magazine's Luxury Expo (up to a $10 value each) and a two-year subscription to the magazine (up to a $29.95 value). The Expo is located at the Sheraton Premiere in Tysons Corner on Saturday, May 7, and Sunday, May 8, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
During the two days, Home & Design's Luxury Expo will stir up a potent mix of professional connections and interior-design project ideas. Today's Groupon gets ticket holders two days of access to the bustling exhibition floor, where more than 40 vendors will purvey home goods, including siding, windows, and multilingual robot butlers. Décor devotees can also slurp down sauvignon at a wine and cheese tasting, sift through a designer sample sale, or absorb professional design advice during seminars. Five seminars will be held each day, including a panel helmed by Home & Design editor Sharon Dan and two presentations by Jane Lockhart of HGTV's Colour Confidential. On Sunday, the expo will host a Mother's Day brunch, awarding the first 300 guests with amply stocked gift bags.
Groupon holders will also get a two-year subscription to Home & Design, which will help readers avoid design withdrawal by feeding eyeballs a steady diet of articles about Washington-area architecture and design. Its crisp color photos can inspire your inner designer or decorate the walls of your 90-square-foot urban tree house.
