Connected at the 2015 PNA Home Design & Remodel Fair
The Connected Community:A Whole Neighborhood Under One Roof
In her five years of attending the PNA Home Fair, Rebecca
West has certainly gotten to know a lot of neighbors.Though many of those conversations have
resulted in projects for her company, Rebecca West Interiors, it isn’t just the
great business results that keep her coming back.

has always been drawn to the great people she inevitably meets throughout the
day.“The clients I’ve met through the
Home Fair are so wonderful,” she says, “that they make the jobs themselves a
Eddie Uehara and Michael Smukler had been coming to the Home
Fair since 1998 and had been stuck for years on how to redecorate their home.After asking Rebecca for a little help last
year, though, the project came to life quickly. Michael chalked up the success
not only to Rebecca’s expertise, but to the local focus of the Home Fair as
well.“People are there to offer help
with the kinds of problems that are pertinent to the homeowners in this neighborhood,” he said.
Another of Rebecca’s clients, Cathy Swift, echoed those same
sentiments. “A lot of the other home fairs have so much that I can get
overwhelmed and paralyzed,” Cathy said.“The PNA Home Fair felt like it was digestible.And I loved the fact that Rebecca was just
down the street and a part of the community.”Not surprisingly, the fateful connection soon resulted in a beautiful
bathroom renovation that Cathy had been dreaming about for years. She finally
found it simply by striking up a friendly conversation with one of her
neighbors at the annual PNA Home Fair.
