How to Win a Home Makeover From Ikea’s Home Tour Squad
The retailer’s roving team of design experts is heading to our area in June to redo one selected home.
If you’re the type who could spend hours mining an Ikea showroom for design inspiration, take note: The Swedish retailer has launched a traveling home-makeover program—and it’s headed our way.
Here’s the rundown: The brand has cherry-picked five experts from its 38 US stores—including Elizabeth Spencer, a graduate from Los Angeles’s Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, who hails from our very own Woodbridge store—to act as its team of design pros and go on tour for a year to meet with selected homeowners, scope out their design challenges, and install solutions in five homes along the East Coast. The resulting makeovers will be shared on Ikea’s YouTube portal and social media. Want in on the fun? Ikea started accepting applications for participation online today. To be considered, shoot a three-minute video showing your space and describing why you need the home makeover, then submit it through the store’s website. The deadline is May 2.
