On Tuesday, May 10, at 1:00 p.m. E.T., AD global editorial director and U.S. editor in chief, Amy Astley, kicks off the digital programming with “A Profile in Style,” a keynote conversation with designer Justina Blakeney. A breakout star and trailblazing entrepreneur, Blakeney will reflect on her unconventional path to success, offering fresh insights for emerging talents and established peers alike. Tune in as she and Astley reflect on making an impact in a crowded field, the future of the industry, how to expand one’s brand, and more.
Of course, as any good designer can tell you, success lies in the details. Colin King, a leading stylist and frequent AD collaborator, knows that better than anyone. On Wednesday, May 11, at 1:00 p.m. E.T., King sits down with AD global features director Sam Cochran for “Finishing Touches – Life Lessons from a Top Stylist,” the first of Global Design Talks’ four interactive workshops. The topics covered—from tips on arranging objects to new ways of looking at a space—will help you hone your eye and finesse your craft as a designer.
The next day, the learning continues with “Open Invitation – Designers’ Own Homes as Calling Cards.” Throughout the history of the decorative arts, designers’ own homes have remained at the forefront of innovation, offering laboratories for leading talents to test new ideas and concepts. On Thursday, March 12, at 1:00 p.m. E.T., designers Martin Brudnizki and Brigette Romanek share hard-won insights from their own home transformations with Mayer Rus, AD’s West Coast editor. If you’ve ever considered making your own pad a showcase for big ideas, you won’t want to miss this one.
Wellness and healthy living remain top of mind in design for today’s pros—and clients’ standards are higher than ever, particularly when it comes to air quality and ventilation. In a panel conversation sponsored by Zephyr, AD PRO editor Lila Allen speaks with design luminaries Mandy Cheng, Noz Nozawa, and Shalena Smith about creating healthy interiors—ones that go beyond aesthetics to consider the effect of layouts, materials, smart technology, and more, on well-being. Join them on Tuesday, May 17, at 1:00 p.m. for “Breathing Room: Interiors for Better Living” to stay up to speed on creating a space with wellness in mind.
