Interior Design Master Class

From Rizzoli New York


Back in May of 2014 I published a post about a book proposal I’d written that was purchased by Rizzoli New York titled ‘Interior Design Master Class’. I’m grateful to say that nearly 2 1/2 years later the book is finished and has been released.

It features 100 essays by more than 100 principals of the finest interior design firms in America today, each examining one subject within the design discipline. Long standing concepts like Scale, Proportion, Color, and Floor Plans are illuminated — as well as meditations on more philosophical ideas like Psychology, Archeology, America, Film, and Alchemy.

In the short time since its release #IDMC has been applauded by Architectural Digest, Vogue, One King’s Lane, Cultured Lifestyle and Elle Decor’s Michael Bruno — who said “This book should be required reading for all design students and practicing professionals.”  I’m both humbled by the accolades and grateful for the support.

All of this brings me to the point of this post: I’m no longer going to be writing here on Instead, in keeping with Interior Design Master Class and its focus on design education,  I’ve created a blog based on the book and will be working to establish it as the go-to resource for ongoing design education. I hope you will join me there!
