Join our expert panel as we discuss the delicate balance and how to master the fine art of high/low!
Magazines write about it; bloggers blog about it; and HGTV has a new show dedicated to it. But inquiring minds want to know, is the look for less really possible? Further, how does one know when to spend and when to save?
Kelley Proxmire - Designer and look-for-less extraordinaire. In her 20-year career, Kelley Proxmire has developed a matchless eye for crafting what she describes as "tailored traditional" interiors. Her projects suffuse warmth and hospitality while maintaining excellent balance, proportion and scale. Her love of color is combined with an appreciation for the fresh sophistication of white and the daring elegance of black. Adept at mixing traditional pieces with unexpected finds, Proxmire creates environments that are attuned to the client's world and faithful to the architecture and setting of a home. Participating in 17+ show houses since 2001 with her projects garnering national attention, Proxmire was inducted into the Washington Design Center Hall of Fame in 2009.
Leah Moss - Blogger, designer, and DIYer. Leah is a native Washingtonian who grew up in a family full of artists. Her passion for interiors started early in life, but she made her entrance into the DC design industry filing away textile samples at the Washington Design Center while secretly dreaming up elaborate design schemes. In 2008 she began translating those dreams into blog posts for Apartment Therapy, and soon after into material form for a broad spectrum of residential and commercial clients around the DC area. She has a passion for salvaged materials, and focuses much of her decorative energy on finding innovative ways to harmonize the creative and the practical.
(Note: Outside of NYC, all of our Apartment Therapy Design Evenings are volunteer based and aimed at helping people by connecting them with great design and great local resources. Find out more and join us here.)
