The Future of Living: Designing Multiuse Spaces in the Home

Moderated by Gillea Allison

Rooms that can "do it all" have become a significant focus in design, as more and more bedrooms are serving as offices, game rooms as home theaters and kitchens as classrooms. Utilizing square footage in clever and sophisticated ways present unique and exciting challenges as needs for the home expand. Design techniques in lighting, furniture selection, color and more influence how a dual purposed space comes together effortlessly. Join Gillea Allison, President of D Magazine Partners, as she leads a discussion with industry experts on the future of home design in multi-functioning spaces. Panelists to include Matthew Wilson of Palecek, Mark Hoesterey of SHM Architects and Amy White of Fagan White Design.

The Science of Design

Join Kelli Lamb and Danny Seo

We often see pictures of gorgeous rooms in magazines and pinned on our Pinterest page, but we're never told why the room looks gorgeous. Just like baking, having the right ingredients in the right amount is crucial for success. Join Kelli Lamb, Editorial Director of RUE Magazine, and Danny Seo, designer and Co-Principal of RUE, as they discuss the science of why a beautiful room works. It's not just about having good taste and an endless bank account, it's about knowing why certain things work, why they cost what they cost, and then how to use this information to transform your home into a pin worthy home. Stay after the session to meet Kelli and receive a signed copy of her book “Home With Rue” – limited copies available.
