She Said, She Said… Inside & Out

10:00 AM – 11:00 AM | Walters, Suite 538

When it comes to indoor/outdoor living, everyone wants to extend their distinctive personalities beyond the doors of the home. What’s your design mindset? Are you swinging traditional or modern? Do you design on the edge? Join Cindy Allen, Editor in Chief of Interior Design as she hosts a lively chat with two unique design luminaries—and friends—Alexa Hampton and Ghislaine Viñas. Join in as they each bring their own larger than life perspective to the design dialogue, as they talk the ins-and-outs of indoor/outdoor design. The forecast will be sunny and bright!


Garden Design in America’s Playgrounds

1:00 PM to 2:00 PM | Michael Taylor | Jim Thompson, Suite 1640

To kick off summer, please join NYC&G (New York Cottages & Gardens) Editor In Chief, Kendell Cronstrom for a riveting presentation with one of the country’s leading landscape architects, Mario Nievera. The discussion will focus on the sumptuous gardens from Nievera in the Hamptons, New York City, and Palm Beach and their various similarities and difference, as well as how he successfully balances color, light, form, texture, detail and harmony to create understated elegance in outdoor spaces.


Familiar Motifs, Modern Forms

4:00 PM to 5:15 PM | Patterson Flynn Martin, Suite 632

With his first outdoor furniture collection outfitting patios this spring, interior designer Thomas O’Brien brings his modern view on classic design into the al fresco. Listen in as Traditional Home Editor in Chief Jill Waage interviews Thomas about the sources of his inspiration—both practical and fine—and how he translates them into his unique vision for design. His product lines and client works are artful, elegantly tethered to history, and yet oh-so-modern. Don’t miss the chance to hear his words on how rooms can relax and live well, inside and out.
