Join us for another fabulous Lite Lunch at the Library Society, this time with incredibly talented interior designer, Marshall Watson. Watson is known for his European-inspired, richly textured designs, and for this program, he will discuss his gorgeous book, The Art of Elegance: Classic Interiors. The book shares his finest work, demonstrating that while each of these homes is as unique as its owner, they all adhere to principles that transform a mere series of spaces into a genuine, coherent home: warmth; light; peace; comfort; balance; proportion; livability; and last, but not least, appropriateness. This event is $25 for CLS Members and $35 for CLS Guests, and will include a delicious boxed lunch!
