I am just going to tell it to you straight, if I could add another career right now, it would be that of a set decorator. I have spent the last couple of years working with Set Decorator Society of America members and they are an amazing group. Many also work as interior designers but make no mistake, these two disciplines are very different.

Following are three amazing set decorators who, combined have worked on some amazing projects. You know their work, titles include; Cheers, The Abyss, Gone In 60 Seconds, Basic Instinct, Seinfeld, Threes Company, Married With Children, Judy Moody and The Not Bummer Summer, this is just a few, a sample.

Laura Richarz, Don Diers and Melinda Ritz are giants in the biz. Andrew Linde, a Convo By Design segment producer caught up with them. Enjoy.

Fall has come and I for one, am thrilled. Fall in Southern California means the weather cools. Yes, it cools elsewhere in Fall but here, it takes the edge off of summer and the tourists have mostly gone home which leaves the beaches empty, a great time for a second, cooler summer. It also means WestEdge is coming.This will be our 5th year as a media partner and our fourth year hosting live conversations. This year, we have some special things to share so I hope you can make it out October 19th through the 22nd at Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar.

As we prepared for the show this year, we found a conversation from last year that you haven’t heard before on Convo By Design. This conversation is moderated by Veronica Miller of Modenus and features Beth Dotolo and Carolina Gentry of Pulp Design Studios, as well as Lori Gilder and Rebecca Reynolds of Kitchen Design Network. I enjoyed this conversation a great deal and I’m happy to share it with you. This is Reimagining the Classics for Modern Living. This is all about influences and influencers of the past and creating on success, breathing new life into classic work.

This is Part two of Reimagining the Classics for Modern Living. If you like what you hear, And, I hope you do, please, go to iTunes and off to the left, click subscribe.
