On the first show of @home we will be asking question after question exploring the meaning of home and how Interior Design reflects – who we are and who we want to be!
David begins the show by explaining what an interior designer does, and what goes into interior design. David tells the audience that the best designs for your life starts at home. He wants to understand that phrase better and how the interior design process reflects that. He goes on to discuss the need for beauty and comfort and how to turn a house into a home. David starts explaining certain rooms in a home by laying out how these rooms should be setup to ensure a positive and luxurious experience. David then lays out what he wants to talk about on this show, and explain what is beautiful and why is it beautiful to us? His goal with the show is explain the meaning and essence of interior design. David was always meant to be an interior designer in his eyes. As a young kid he was always in re arranging room, like his bedroom that he himself designed and where he found his style. David relives a time when he was a young kid at a play. The first number of the play really spoke to him and is a reason why he is here today sharing his experiences with interior design.
David starts off the segment by introducing his guest, architect Kyle Page. David asks Kyle what he believes is beautiful in a home that he surrounds himself with. Kyle talks about his new countryside house and a dining room table that he had installed. He got a local sawyer on site to cut down a dying tree and a furniture maker to turn this old wood into a dining room table. David talks about a collective of drawings he has in his house that were on recycled paper that are from an old letter or book, he loves the humanness of using something like a letter for drawing on. David asks kyle what his first design was, kyle mentions that he fell into architecture sort of by accident, and that his first design was when he opened up his office 10 years ago. David goes on to share his and Kyle’s first project working together. David also shares his first design, which was a pond that he created in his backyard. Kyle has always enjoyed the complexity of how things come together, which is why he found architecture so fulfilling.
The third segment starts off the with concept of process. When Kyle starts a project he pictures a snowball forming, in the beginning he must accumulate the different pieces and see how they interact with one another. He mentions, as that happen the different pieces start to feed off one another and form together. David’s process is a little different when it comes to the show. He explains that for the show he turned everything off and wanted to be alone with his thoughts while writing for the show. Whereas when he is working with interior design he likes to have music playing and feeds off his surroundings. David and Kyle go on to talk about what inspires them while working on projects, NYC being one itself. They feel that the city is a great place to grab ideas from and there are so many different aspects of the city that can inspire them. The two then move on to the topic of family. David asks Kyle how his children influenced his process of designing his new countryside home. Kyle explains that seeing his kids on the property and where they gravitated too played a big role in his design process.
The final segment is a question and answer forum where David pulls questions from twitter. The first question is “How do I even begin the design process for my new dream house?” David advises to start writing a list and collecting pictures to show and tell designers. Kyle recommends cutting out images from magazines even if it’s something that you don’t like or want because it can still be informative. The next question is “what is luxurious?” David says there are 4 things that make something luxurious.. customization, details, privacy, and comfort. David ends the show by thanking his audience for tuning in to the first show.
