When it comes to learning from the best and being inspired, few designers resonate as far and wide as Michael S. Smith. He has just written his 5th design book, The Curated House: Creating Style, Beauty, and Balance, with Rizzoli, where he shares his homes along with those of clients living around the globe. I have the great honor of sitting down to discuss the new book with Michael next week, when we will dialog about his design philosophy and distinctly Californian sensibility. Join us at 12pm at the D and D Building showroom of John Rosselli and Associates on Tuesday, November 10th, where I will engage Michael in a lively conversation. From art and antiques (he has an encyclopedic knowledge in both) to his Jasper and Templeton fabrics and furniture design, spark your creative imagination and learn from the best. I look forward to seeing you there!
