Storytelling comes in all forms-including in the memorable interiors pictured
in the November/December 2021 issue of i+D, as well as in the related content and
insight penned by our authors. Such unique narratives, from different design periods
to stage and set planning, can transport us to the past, present, or future,
just as effortlessly as this edition (and our contributors) explain.
- Linda K. Monroe
1. Danine Alati, The Aspen Idea
Since she once worked on Aspen Peak magazine, it's
no surprise that Danine has a long-standing fondness
for the city. " But, " she admits, " when I visited Aspen
for the first time this summer, my infatuation turned
to love! Just breathing the Aspen air conjures such a
sense of calm and inner peace. And all of my sources
for this issue's 'Design Pulse' (p. 16) seemed to echo
my emotions, citing how the mountain landscape;
convivial community; and world-class dining, arts,
culture, and design scenes all converge to make this
city with a small-town feel a truly remarkable place
to live and work. " When asked about the most
impressive performance place she has visited, Danine
points to New York City's United Palace theater.
" I wouldn't think it would be exactly my style
-as it's overly opulent, borderline ostentatious-
but there's something about the ornate interior that's
moving and simply awe-inspiring, " she asserts.
2. Anna Zappia, Review, Reflect, Revise
Art Deco is one of Anna's favorite design periods:
" From the furniture to the architecture and the
fashion, there's such a vibrancy that I appreciate, "
she explains. " The geometrics and the colors are
bold and have a sense of movement that captures
the spirit of the time. " Likewise, Anna appreciated
the insight she gained while writing her article on
business assessments and future planning (p. 26).
" While focusing on business and gaining new clients
are always essential, the professionals I spoke with
talked about the importance of taking time off and
making sure that breaks are part of the process, "
she says. " They noted that if creatives can recharge,
they come back to work refreshed and with a wealth
of interesting ideas. ... It's a good reminder for
all of us that rest and relaxation should be included
in our daily routines. "

3. Diana Mosher, In the Mix
As a fan of elements " from different design periods
and eclectic interiors that mix them up, " Diana was
the perfect choice to pursue the article on borrowing
design ideas from different eras and areas (p. 32).
" There is always a time and place for authentic
antiques, but reusing found objects-sometimes from
the client's own home-is an equally important talent
worth cultivating, " she offers. " These pieces can be
repositioned with a fresh coat of paint or lacquer in
an unexpected hue or neutral that helps pull together
elements from varied regions and time periods. My
interviews also confirmed that collections are in the
eye of the collector, and you only need three [items]
to have one. " Diana's eye, though, is most attracted
to the mid-century modern period " with its low
profiles, geometric shapes, and pops of color, " she
says. " Also, mid-century modern is said to have a
nearly equal emphasis on form and function. "
4. Jesse Bratter, Mise-en-Scène
With a history of performing, Jesse instantly related
to her article on stage and screen influences on
design (p. 40). " I'm intimately familiar with stages,
sets, and costumes, and how they all support the
story, " she shares. " But, I was really intrigued
by Charles Pavarini III's explanation of how
intertwined fashion and furniture design are-how
it's important to study fashion when designing a
period set in order to understand how the furniture
of that time was designed to accommodate certain
kinds of clothing. " In her real-world travels, Jesse
made yet another connection with a story that
began in the year 1221: the Santa Maria Novella
apothecary in Florence, Italy. " A field of flowers
suspended from the ceiling transports you as you
walk down the entrance hallway, and it only gets
better once you're inside, " she recalls. " From
intricate millwork to vaulted ceilings and frescoes,
the ancient perfumery is romance personified. "

5. Ambrose Clancy,
ICONic Profile: Sheila Bridges
" Having lived in Dublin, I fell in love with Georgian
architecture and design, " reveals Ambrose, when
invited to share his personal style preference. He
further notes how Georgian architecture " must be an
echo of reason, classically ordered, and work not just
for the comfort of the resident, but to communicate
with the spirit. " He adds that he is partial to churches
as well, " not so much for a religious reason, but for the
feeling of quiet, of a hush that comes into you, where
memories can find words, and a story begins. " In fact,
according to Ambrose, his story on Sheila Bridges for
this edition's " ICONic Profile " (p. 48) " relies on her
great, ongoing education and ways in which she can
fluidly connect pieces of information into a delightful
conversational mosaic. " He adds, " I especially liked
her sense of Philadelphia nationalism and her assertion
that she doesn't sleep at all. "
6. Jessica Goldbogen Harlan,
The Heart of the Home
Although Jessica previously wrote about kitchen
design for the November/December 2019 issue of
i+D, she says, " It's been interesting to revisit the topic
(p. 50) and learn how the pandemic has affected how
people use their kitchens. " She elaborates, " I heard
from designers that since homeowners are now calling
upon their kitchens not just for food preparation,
but often for remote working and learning, they want
a space that's warm, inviting, and infused with their
personality. " A bit of Jessica's own personality is
revealed through her partiality toward mid-century
modern design. " I just love the shapes of the furniture,
the modular look, the fabric patterns-all of it! "
And, that excitement lends itself to an interesting
performance " venue, " she concedes. " I have trouble
paying attention to storylines when I watch TV shows
like Mad Men or The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. I'm too
busy drinking in every little detail of the sets! "
