Now that we are back in season there is no shortage of events and mixers to socialize and connect with local business professionals. Make sure and put the first Wine & Design Mixer for 2023 on your calendar for Wednesday January 25, starting at 5:30PM. This free event takes place at the Palm Desert Design Center located at 73-185 A, Hwy 111, Palm Desert (near Panera Bread & Carl’s Jr.) Come for the great networking while you enjoy complimentary wine, champagne, appetizers, and art

As a Realtor with Better Homes and Gardens Desert Lifestyle Properties I wanted to create an atmosphere where people and business owners could come together to socialize and support each other while  taking away good information on increasing the value of their home. During this two-hour mixer you will get the opportunity to collaborate with interior and exterior designers. Get tips on increasing your curb appeal or adding value to your property with a pool and outdoor BBQ area. If you’re looking for ideas on updating your kitchens and baths this is the perfect evening for you. Arus Melkonyan, owner of the Palm Desert Design Center will be offering a 20% discount on all design products during the mixer. They carry exclusive Versace products such as slabs and medallions in addition to cabinets, tile, flooring and more.

For January we are excited to welcome interior designer Andrew Graham. Imagine working with a skilled interior designer fully educated and versed in the principles of fine interior design and decoration with the added knowledge of your color choice and pattern. According to Andrew “Color is emotional, often stemming from childhood experiences or anchored in societal or religious beliefs.” He will share his education and experience in Color Consulting & Color Psychology.


If you want to envision your design project, Jose Garza with Garza Concepts will share information on concept design and 3D modeling for interior and exterior. Pablo Castro the owner of First Seed Landscape and Concrete will be on hand to inspire your landscape ideas and share tips on lawn care and concrete designs for your yard. Whether you simply want a fresh look or a complete redesign these professionals are here to answer your questions and inspire your design ideas.

At this mixer you can also explore art displayed by local artists and art dealers for your home or office. January’s event features amazing art from Desert Wolff Gallery at 73-151 El Paseo, Suite D, Palm Desert. Meet owner Lucien Wolff who will share his unique and eclectic collection of contemporary art, sculptures and decorative accessories imported from around the world.

Find everything you need for your interior and exterior all in one space. Some of the raffle prizes include 2 Full Experience Oasis Passes from Azur Palm Hot Springs Resort & Day Spa Oasis in Desert Hot Springs and a $250 gift certificate from Palm Desert Design Center.
