On Saturday, November 13, 2010, Customers Will Get Decorating Advice First-Hand From Summer Baltzer, Known for Her Work on HGTV's "Design on a Dime" Show and TLC's New Hit Show "Unhinged"

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - October 11, 2010) -

In celebration of Jerome's 56th Anniversary, Jerome's Furniture (Jerome's) announced officially today it is hosting celebrity interior designer Summer Baltzer for a free in-store event as part of the company's "J Club" initiative, which offers in-store designer resources to customers. Titled "Home for the Holidays: Maximizing your Personal Style on a Budget," the event is expected to draw crowds who want to spruce up their homes to prepare for guest visits and holiday entertainment. Because Summer is known for her expertise in designing homes that reflect the personal style of her clients, Jerome's thought she would be the perfect expert speaker to share her tips with customers on how to create the home of their dreams on a dime-sized budget. 

Summer's philosophy is that all design rules are meant to be broken.   She believes that good design is about finding your own personal style and making it work to your advantage. Her main goal has always been to empower people everywhere to create designer inspired looks in their own homes.

Known for her role on HGTV's "Design on a Dime" and TLC's new hit show "Unhinged," Summer Baltzer's energetic personality and down to earth style has won her millions of fans all over the United States and abroad. Summer has established herself as a woman not afraid to pick up a tool, paint brush or needle and thread to create innovative and one of a kind projects. She has inspired women and men everywhere to grab hold of the reins and take chances with their own personal style.

As a licensed general contractor, business owner, TV personality and mother, she understands how difficult it can be to juggle the events of day-to-day life while trying to create a warm and inviting sanctuary for oneself.

On television, Summer specializes in creating one of a kind, high-end interiors on strict budgets! She also loves helping people work with what they have and then teach them how to add, revamp and revitalize to create stylish, low cost and unique interiors that reflect the personality of the client. Summer's clients not only have the benefit of her overall vision of a project, but they also get the hands-on skills and expertise to "pitch in" and get the job done. This personalized touch puts the "stamp" on a project and makes a house a home.

Jerome's Furniture promises low prices every day, or "Jerry's Price," so customers don't have to wait to get the best deals or navigate through retailer gimmicks and promotions. The showroom features departments filled with furniture for homes of all shapes and sizes. Departments include: Kidz to Teens; Leather; Dining; Jerome's Dream Shop (mattresses); living room; entertainment; home office; and a clearance center. The store's popular "Room Packages," on prominent display in the showroom, are known to make it easy for shoppers to select a coordinated room ensemble. At the event, Jerome's will unveil Summer's favorite finds and top tips to create a home for the holidays and into the new year that reflect one's personal style on a tight budget.

"Having a beautiful home doesn't have to cost a bundle," said Stefanie Navarra, Buyer at Jerome's. "I think a lot of people are surprised when they come in the store because we have so much merchandise that looks and feels close to high-end shops, but at much lower prices. It just takes a keen eye to know what's really going to work in your home. That's why we thought it's time to bring in a well-known designer so that our customers can get to hear first-hand how to create the home of their dreams... it is within reach!"

Attendees from all parts of southern California will walk away with a new perspective on home decorating and will be energized by Summer's spirit, enthusiasm and budget-saving tips that make real home interior design accessible for the masses this holiday season. They'll also walk away with a gift from Jerome's for their tool chests. She is expected to speak to a full-house at the Jerome's showroom, located in Morena Design District in San Diego, California.
