How To Live In A House

About this Event

ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST Executive Editor Shax Riegler taps into a world of inspiration with Interior Designer Cathy Kincaid and Textile Designer Lisa Fine as the three discuss how to live in a house. Kincaid will debut her new book “THE WELL ADORNED HOME: MAKING LUXURY LIVABLE” (Rizzoli) while Fine will take us around the world with her new book “NEAR & FAR: INTERIORS I LOVE (Vendome). The panel will be followed by a reception at Waterworks.

An editorial favorite, Kincaid is renowned for her carefully nuanced color palettes and attention to detail. Her worldly taste in collecting art and furnishings, her intricate layering of patterns, and the customized details--from trelliswork to lacquered surfaces--she applies to every room are hallmarks of her style. Presented are varied residences, ranging from a ship captain's cottage in Old Lyme, CT and a 1920s Spanish Colonial in Texas to a family Mas in the South of France.

Lisa Fine is a whirling dervish of energy with her panache for worldwide travel throughout Europe and Asia, with a special love of India where she designs and produces her textiles.In her much-anticipated book, Fine invites us into her own homes in New York, Paris, and Dallas and takes us on a head-spinning tour of the most stylish and unique homes that have inspired her designs -- from the Mughal palaces and gardens of India to Svindersvik, an eighteenth-century rococo manor house in Sweden, from the whitewashed retreat of interior designer John Stefanidis on Patmos, decorated with a beautifully curated mix of Indian textiles, Turkish rugs, Greek embroideries, Anglo-Indian furniture, Venetian glass, and English silver, to the idyllic country house and garden of London-based designer Penny Morrison.

Evocatively photographed by Miguel Flores-Vianna and with a foreword by style editor Deborah Needleman, Near & Far not only provides a trove of design ideas but offers advice for anyone interested in giving full expression to their personal style. As Lisa Fine recently told House Beautiful: “I think in everything you do aesthetically, you have to go with what you love. . . . You just make it work—and that’s what makes it your own.”
