    Designing a happy marriage between decorator, architect - February 27, 2015 by admin

    On Monday, interior designer Elissa Ellie Cullman will join architect Allan Greenberg in an intriguingly named program at The Society of the Four Arts The Uneasy Marriage of the Architect and Interior Designer.

    Cullman founded New York City-based Cullman & Kravis 30 years ago and has designed interiors for a number of Palm Beach homes. Greenberg runs his eponymous firm, which has offices in New York City; Greenwich, Conn.; and Alexandra, Va.

    As a preview, the Palm Beach Daily News asked Cullman for a little insight into the delicate relationship between those who build houses and those who decorate them. Heres what she suggests, in her own words.

    *

    The success of a professional marriage between an architect and an interior designer (and often the client, not to mention a long list of other design professionals like painters, contractors, landscape architects, lighting designers and art advisors) is based on the same principles as any personal I dos collaboration, support, teamwork, open-mindedness, mutual respect, flexibility and harmony:

    * Building a strong team from the ground up is the secret for success. A complete team can consist of an architect, interior designer, landscape architect, painters, contractors, lighting designers and on and on. Every detail must be addressed and analyzed from so many different perspectives, so a talented team of pros who work together in a spirit of harmony and flexibility will result in a much stronger final product.

    * The designer and architect should be engaged at the floor-plan stage because the decorators perspective about such important details as furniture proportion and placement has an critical impact on the architects scheme such things as the height of a chair rail in the dining room or the length of a wall in the bedroom to accommodate a king-sized bed and two night tables are good examples of when the decorators input to the architects plan are invaluable.

    * Lines can be blurred between each partners domain when the partners collaborate on each others choices and challenges, the results are seamless and effective. There is no good decorating without good architecture, the good bones that make a decorators work sing.

    * The clients vision is the inspiration in the professional marriage: Architects and designers dont work in a vacuum. Teamwork wins the day. If a client has strong directives and opinions, the pros must team up to make it work for everyone.

    Stylish return: Erdmann among decorating veterans at American Red Cross Designers Show House - February 27, 2015 by admin

    As she embarks on her third decade in business, interior designer Lisa E. Erdmann follows an every-other-year schedule to decide when she will decorate a room in the American Red Cross Designers Show House, an annual fundraiser that benefits the charitys Palm Beach Treasure Coast chapter. On alternate years, she focuses on a different organization, from creating a table setting for a benefit at the Norton Museum to helping the Center for Family Services renovate its West Palm Beach offices.

    But this year, shes returning her time and design talents to the 39th annual Red Cross Show House at a historic lakefront home in Lake Worth, which hosts a preview party Wednesday before opening to the public the next day for a month of tours.

    My parents raised me to always know it was our responsibility to give back if we had the means to do so, Erdmann says. So picking a charity is important in my makeup, and working with the Red Cross is a pleasure. Its so well received that it helps expose our design talent, and it benefits them, too.

    Land-development ties

    Giving back is not the only way of thinking Erdmann learned from her family.

    Her livelihood centers around homes and design, and she comes from a land-development family with a name certainly familiar to Palm Beachers. Her grandfather, E. Llwyd Ecclestone Sr. an early proponent of building luxury homes clustered around golf courses developed the South Florida luxury communities Lost Tree Village and Johns Island. Her father, Palm Beacher E. Llwyd Ecclestone, developed PGA National and Old Port Cove. Her brother, E. Llwyd Ecclestone III, meanwhile, has just finished work on a pair of houses he developed on speculation on the North End.

    Erdmann graduated from Middlebury College in Vermont and attended Parsons School of Design while working in the design industry in New York City. Having also studied at Florida Institute of Technology, she founded Lisa Erdmann & Associates in 1994. Its based at her familys development offices in West Palm Beach but has also long maintained a Palm Beach address.

    For this years show house, Erdmann is cooking up something special for the living room of the 1925 Mediterranean-style house known locally as the Birthday Cake Castle, although its formal name is La Florentia.

    The 7,000 square foot house, recently bought by Scott Levine, was originally built by Sherman Childs. It received its Birthday Cake Castle nickname when former owner Upton Close gave the home to his wife, Margaret Fretter Nye, as a birthday present in 1954. With slender candle-like pillars, plaster swirls that resemble icing and graceful curves, it even has a birthday-cake stained-glass window in the stairwell.

    Its grandly scaled rooms, casual spaces, and nooks and crannies of various shapes and sizes will be the basic ingredients for 20 designers, who will adorn them to create their own slices of decorating magic.

    Victorian killer jailed for 18 years - February 21, 2015 by admin

    A man who murdered a prominent Melbourne interior decorator he'd been in a relationship with for 16 years has been jailed for 18 years with a minimum of 13.

    Victorian Supreme Court judge Elizabeth Hollingworth said Michael Anthony O'Neill, 48, had 'snapped' and killed Stuart Rattle in the heat of the moment after Mr Rattle called him a frigid bitch.

    O'Neill spent five days pretending nothing had happened, telling friends and co-workers Mr Rattle was feeling unwell, before setting fire to their South Yarra apartment.

    Justice Hollingworth said O'Neill had trouble coming to terms with the fact he had killed the man he loved.

    'There's plenty of evidence that you are devastated by what you have done,' Justice Hollingworth said.

    O'Neill admitted to killing Mr Rattle by bludgeoning him over the head with a pan then strangling him with a dog leash after police found inconsistencies in his original story - that Mr Rattle had died in the fire. Mr Rattle begged O'Neill for his life, saying 'Michael don't do this', as he was strangled, Justice Hollingworth said.

    The couple had a tense relationship and Mr Rattle would often complain about O'Neill to their friends, saying he didn't satisfy him sexually, she said.

    'He would call you lazy, a parasite, he threatened to send you back to where you came from.'

    But she added this in no way justified O'Neill's actions.

    Mr Rattle's family said in witness impact statements his death left an enormous hole in their lives.
