She has recently completed her first book inspired by her many years of teaching and lecturing entitled "The 100 Most Often Asked Interior Design Questions".
Natalie has recently launched the Natalie Weinstein Home Decorating Club for Long Islanders who would like to use designer sources at a discount, get a little design advice, but would essentially like to go it alone. She has also established a "Members Only Resource Center" at 176 Second Street, St. James to allow members to purchase designer fabrics and wallcoverings at a 30% discount. Membership will be free for a year, with no obligation.
The Club "official" launch will be at the new Suffolk Community College Sports Complex and Convention Center (Exit 53, Wick's Rd., Long Island Expressway) at the Home Improvement and Design Expo, on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, September 28, 29, and 30. Please join Natalie there along with many of her sources.
