The Fall Season is upon us, and kicking it off, we've got a fabulous guest, the collecting guru from Martha Stewart, Fritz Karch. We're also going to continue doing what we started last month and cure one room a month with Group Apartment Therapy and provide time for lots of networking...
We'll start the evening with a ten minute presentation of one troubled room, which we'll post ahead of time, and get the audience to lend a hand. Interested? Head below...
Want to Submit a Room to Cure?
Send us 3-5 photos of your problem room, a floor plan, along with a sentence explaining what you feel your biggest challenge is by Monday. Please email saram @ apartmenttherapy . com and we'll contact the owner of the selected room next Monday.

All About Fritz!
"Fritz Karch's office looks just as you might imagine. It's piled high with his latest finds, a fascinating mix of exquisite things and intriguing oddities. Ask him about virtually any vintage item, and he'll tell you the story behind it. For our collecting articles, Fritz, who started at Martha Stewart Living in 1992 and is now the editorial director of collecting, chooses topics that educate and delight. He then arranges objects related to the topics and captures their quirky and beautiful personalities in photos. Collecting is about "reusing and recycling," Fritz says. "There's so much wonderful stuff in the world." In addition to being a lifelong collector (or, as he says, "hunter and gatherer"), Fritz is a dealer specializing in twentieth-century dinnerware, among many other things. His preference, he jokes, goes toward four categories: broken, large, heavy, and useless."
