It’s been said that culture is the the science behind design. That is no more obvious than in architecture. A dwelling is a manifestation of the culture around it. Some ideas are groundbreaking and they fall flat because surrounding culture wasn’t ready yet. The same can be said for the overuse of architectural styles long after society has moved on. Ward Jewell is a Los Angeles based architect with a significant roster of celebrity clients including Madonna, Warren Beatty, Candice Bergman and James Cameron. He has been featured in Architectural Digest, Dream Homes and Luxe Magazine. What is truly remarkable about Ward is his ability to wrap his architectural vision around a cultural construct. He makes better use of historical reference than anyone. What I mean is, Ward is truly a student of architecture. This stems from his early experiences growing up in a Wallace Neff house and a fluid understanding of what makes architecture both relevant and capable of standing the test of time. Following is a conversation with Ward that took place at the WestEdge Design Fair. We spoke in the California Beach Follies tent designed by Kelley Jackson Interior Design and built by the Warner Bros. Property Department. The conversation you hear will be paired with videos on our YouTube Channel featuring many of the projects Ward and I discuss here.

I love the holidays! More time to spend with family and friends, tinker a bit in the studio and engage in the guilty pleasure of binge watching a lengthy list of tv shows and movies. You might feel the same, and while it is rare for me to binge watch, the holidays are the perfect time to do it. You are probably wondering why I’m telling you this. Well, it’s because after so many years working with set decorators, I can’t watch anything anymore without wondering who decorated the set? Which prop house did they get THAT sofa from or how would that lamp look in my living room. With that said, I thought this would be a great time to share a conversation from the WestEdge Design Fair this past November featuring set decorators and SDSA members Jason Howard, Jan Pascale, and Ann Shea, Ken Sharp VP of Modern Props, and Beverly Hadley Director of the Art Department at Universal Studios. The conversation was directed by Emmy Magazine’s Juan Morales. This part one of Behind The Design, The Art of Storytelling: a Set Decorator’s collaboration.

One of the things I enjoy most about the holidays is the amount of time I have without feeling guilty that I’m not working. Time to spend with family and friends, tinker a bit in the studio and engage in the guilty pleasure of binge watching a lengthy list of tv shows and movies.

In this episode, we pair two creatives with some common threads; Vision, passion, talent and gratitude. These are two remarkable individuals with crazy skills. I wanted you to hear from interior designer Cesar Giraldo and set decorator Beth Wooke. I wanted to juxtapose these two creatives against each other for a few reasons. Both are incredibly passionate, very successful in their respective disciplines and both come from a cooperative place with regard to their work, and getting it right for their client. They are appreciative of every opportunity to put their talents to work and it comes through in the way they discuss their career. At the same time, the manner in which they approach the work is very different because they are serving different masters. A set is designed for a script and a residential project is designed for an individual, couple or family. These require a completely different way of thinking, collaborating and at the same time, they both must capture the essence of the individuals for whom the space is created.

This is interior designer Cesar Giraldo and set decorator, Beth Wooke. If you enjoy Convo By Design, and I hope you do, please, go to iTunes and off to the left, click subscribe.

Convo By Design, presented by Snyder Diamond has an interesting offering for you this week. I attended the Modern Luxury Interiors 2017 Faces of Design event held at the Roche Bobois showroom in Costa Mesa, California. We are honored to be included in the 2017 group of California design influencers and I will be bringing you conversations from this remarkable event over the next few weeks. Roche Bobois is a part of the SoCo Collection, an oasis of design, fashion and food in Orange County. We had a chance to record from the event, catch up with old friends and make some new ones. This episode features interior designer Cheryl Kaye, Modern Luxury Group Publisher, Chris Gialanella and artist Hunt Slonem. Slonem, known for his new-expressionist work is also a collector of rescued birds and rescued properties. Kaye, as a designer uses shape, texture and color in a way that is reminiscent of Slonem’s use of oil paint. She is fearless which makes for a great conversation. Gialanella manages a number of titles here is Southern California. Chris is what most would call a “people person”. He is one of those rare individuals that connects the dots and works partnerships in an artful way. Three superior creatives, artist Hunt Slonem, interior designer Cheryl Kaye and publisher Chris Gialanella. Enjoy... And if you do, please, go to iTunes and off to the left, click subscribe.

Two Convo By Design staples merged recently... The West Hollywood Design Districts, DIEM programming curated by Frances Anderton and Mallory Roberts Morgan was live from the WestEdge Design Fair for a full day of talks and panels. This is the first of those conversations. KCRW’s Frances Anderton sat with architect Michael Maltzan about the current state of architecture and design in Los Angeles. Los Angeles has, over the past two decades become a major player on the world stage with regard to architecture and design. Los Angeles, once thought of as a second city when it came to all things arts related, aside from motion pictures, of course, is second to none. And that growth has not come without growing pains. Strained tensions from an abundance of building projects, traffic, congestion, loss of historic properties that have made way for new development. Frances and Michael have an open conversation about the growth and how to move forward in a way that works. Enjoy this conversation between KCRW’s Frances Anderton and architect, Michael Maltzan.

This week, we are going to explore a unique design house project in Santa Monica, California. Lagaspi Courts Design created a fantastic project house and it was produced by GC Collaborative. Here is what is interesting about this project, it was created as a design house that is also on the market. I suppose you could call this a spec home, but it really is so much more than that. This house was designed from the top down in a residential neighborhood in Santa Monica, with amazing views and a regional airport nearby. Often times, a design house project will be easy because the project producers only worry about creating a beautiful space for show. This house was created in the city of Santa Monica which is know for having some tough restrictions. It was produced close to a regional airport flight path and it was created with some elevation challenges. At the same time, it wasn’t just created for art’s sake, this home has to find a buyer. With all of these challenges, we have a remarkably close team consisting of developer Michael Farag, designer Edel Legaspi, architect, Christopher Courts and project producer, Ginna Christensen. This is a deep dive into a challenging project with a stunningly beautiful result. You can read more about it here: http://designontap.snyderdiamond.com/design-on-tap/2017/9/29/best-in-show-house-legaspi-courts and If you like this conversation, please go to iTunes and give the show a good rating, it helps with the show rankings which gets us more exposure.

Renovation and residential construction is exciting. You are designing your dream home, your sanctuary. But that process can also be one of the most stressful experiences of you life. If someone who knew the process inside and out, knew every tip, trick and hack came to you and said, “Listen, give me an hour and I am going to tell you the conditions necessary for an extraordinary build.” would you be interested? If the answer is “yes” then keep listening. Following is a conversation moderated by yours truly from the WestEdge Design Fair. This features Laurie Haefele, James Magni, Bart Mendel, Mike Grosswendt and Brian Biglin. You have every side of this challenge represented, design, architecture, construction and project management all in one place at one time with over 100 years of combined experience giving you exactly what you need.

As mentioned, this conversation was held at the WestEdge Design Fair where Convo By Design presented by Snyder Diamond offered a California Garden Folly designed by Kelley Jackson of Kelley Jackson Interior Design and built by the Warner Bros Property Department and custom work by their upholstery and fabric shops.

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.
