Simplicity: Lecture by Interior Designer Nancy Braithwaite

Celebrated designer Nancy Braithwaite, author of the new book Simplicity, believes that a designer must not merely look—but actually “see” in an educated, principled, and disciplined way. In this talk, Nancy walks step-by-step through her design process, giving attendees a behind-the-scenes look at the fundamental design elements that inform all of her work: architecture, composition, proportion and scale, color, pattern, texture, and craftsmanship. Illustrating her message with photos of gorgeous homes decorated in an array of country, classic and contemporary styles, Nancy will discuss how she achieves her simplicity and will explain why simplicity, when done properly, is actually quite complex. Born and raised in Chicago, Braithwaite launched her career as an industrial designer after receiving her design degree from Michigan State University. Braithwaite’s work has graced the pages of numerous national shelter magazines, books, and newspapers, including Veranda, House Beautiful, Elle Décor, Town & Country, and The New York Times.
