Design lecture set for May 18
Thomas Jayne will speak on Friday, May 18, at Boscobel in Garrison about his book, Classical Principles for Modern Design, in which he discusses lessons learned from Edith Wharton and Ogden Codman.
Using examples from his own work, Jayne will explore how Wharton and Codman’s The Decoration of Houses, published in 1897, is still a go-to guide for room design. Tickets for the 6:30 p.m. event are $15 for members, students and practicing designers and $25 otherwise.
