    Can Interior Design Become Sustainable?

    Can Interior Design Become Sustainable?

    Building, renovating, and redesigning involves vast quantities of shipping, packaging, and waste but in the face of climate change, designers are beginning to grapple with sustainability. But what can a single designer do? Three experts—Katie Storey, founder of the Good Future Design Alliance, designer Laurence Carr, and Susan Inglis, executive director of the Sustainable Furnishings Council—outline simple steps every designer can take, strategies on how to involve clients, how to recycle, and why changing mindsets is even more important than revamping rooms.

    Expanded Family, Limited Space—the New Design Dilemma

    Expanded Family, Limited Space—the New Design Dilemma

    Even before Covid, housing shortages, high rents, and rising real estate prices were challenging the ideal of the single-family home. Now the pandemic has disrupted the living situation of thousands of elder parents and young adults, made clear the central importance of family, and led to thousands of multi-generational households. But what to do when a family expands, but its space doesn’t? Designers Janie Molster, Shari Francis, and Brynn Olson discuss how design can come to the aid of the newly enlarged household, why walls and doors are back, the importance of workspaces and private nooks, and why mother-in-law apartments may just be the next big design trend.

    Designing the Next Generation of Hotels and Restaurants

    Designing the Next Generation of Hotels and Restaurants

    After a rough year, hotels and restaurants are back. Gatherings are happening, and travel
    will continue, but has the pandemic changed what we expect when we go out, or when we
    check in? How do designers make people feel safe and cared for? Three top hospitality
    designers—Pamela Babey of BAMO, Matt Berman of Workshop/APD, and Adam Farmerie
    of AvroKO— share their insights on how business travel will morph, why outdoor spaces
    will become more important than ever, how the idea of service is evolving (but why robots
    are unlikely to be checking you in), and why the mini-bar will never be the same.

    Can Austin Boom and Still Stay Weird?

    Can Austin Boom and Still Stay Weird?

    Austin is perhaps the most creative, bohemian city in Texas—the state capitol, a college
    town, a hub for music, food, and fun. But it is also one of the fastest growing cities in the US,
    with an influx of tech companies and entrepreneurs. In the face of all the new wealth and
    gentrification, what is to become of the city’s design scene? Three passionate Austin
    lovers—designers Fern Santini, Avery Cox, and Malcolm James Kutner—weigh in on its
    changing culture, the growing sophistication of clients, and ways the town can sustain
    craftsmanship and collaboration and not lose its bohemian heart.
