Design San Francisco 2012


Design San Francisco 2012
Feb 1 – 3

Design San Francisco 2012 is the premiere annual event for design professionals. If there is one theme that unifies this year’s keynote addresses – and many of our seminars and workshops – it’s the theme of change. Our three keynote speakers are all outstanding examples of just how much can be accomplished by embracing change.

TRINA TURK, a luminary first in fashion and now in interior design reveals how her career in fashion has informed and inspired her exuberant indoor and outdoor home fabrics and accessories. Turk will sit down with California Home+Design Executive Editor Erin Feher for a frank, funny and insightful conversation about finding your style, building your brand and why California is still the land of risk-takers and tastemakers. RSVP here.

KEITH GRANET, heads Granet & Associates, a management consulting firm for the design industry. Keith talks frankly with designers Michael Booth and Douglas Durkin about their experiences being “transitioned” from large interior design firms to venturing out on their own. RSVP here.

MICHELA O’CONNOR ABRAMS, founder and publisher of the iconic design magazine, Dwell, moderates a panel of cutting-edge interior designers who are harnessing the power of social media to grow their client base, define their brand and get their ideas published. RSVP here.

Do join us!  We hope this year’s Design San Francisco will inspire change in you too – and help you achieve new levels of creativity and professional success.  Get your RSVP’s in now. Click  here for a full schedule of Design San Francisco events.

Spotlight on Geoffrey De Sousa by Decorati Access


Photographer: Matthew Millman

Decorati Access posted a wonderful article on Geoff De Sousa, Co-owner of the highly acclaimed De Sousa Hughes showroom in the SFDC Showplace.  According to Decorati “Since launching his eponymous firm, Geoffrey De Sousa has made a name for himself creating urbane, artful spaces that reflect his curatorial mindset.

Whether a high-rise pied-a-terre or historic residence, De Sousa’s interiors are cosmopolitan and feel consummately modern. De Sousa’s projects include homes in San Francisco, Palm Springs, Boston and Manhattan, a 10,000-square-foot Pacific Heights home by Robert A.M. Stern and a five-star Sonoma B&B. His work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Departures, Traditional Home, House Beautiful, California Home + Design and many other publications.”
