JOIN LEADING INTERIOR DESIGNERS TO DISCUSS "WHAT WE LEARN FROM DECORATING BOOKS" AT KIPS BAY SHOWHOUSE TOMORROW

by Marisa Marcantonio


In this age of fewer and fewer magazines, books are one of the best ways to study interiors. With glorious photographs, anecdotes, lessons and resources to learn from, their value is endless . A well- written tome allows a decorator to carry their ideas further, show more, and tell a story.

When: At Kips Bay Showhouse, 3:30 tomorrow, May 5th
Potterton Books, the great dealers oft seen at the best antique and trade shows, is sponsoring a book talk.

How much: $30 admission to get into the showhouse

Why: Hear what designers have to say about their vision, inspiration, projects and process.

Bunny Williams, Jamie Drake, Jeffrey Bilhuber, Juan Montoya, and Ann Pyne of McMillen will be led in a panel discussion, moderated by Annie Kelly, on the importance of decorating books "What we learn from decorating Books" or, what we wish to communicate with decorating books.

A group book signing will follow (they are giving 10% discount on all the authors' books to help off-set the entrance fee to Kips Bay).
