Spring Fruition The Board of Directors was in a “New York State of Mind” in early January for our first board meeting of 2014, thanks to the generosity of our industry partner, Hansgrohe. We visited the new AXOR showroom in Chelsea, and spent time learning about new products as well as seeing

and being in new interior environments. And it is always fruitful to have extended time to converse with other design professionals.

The upcoming spring calendar is full of opportunities for New England design professionals to meet and network: a trip to Portland, Maine; a bus trip to the Shelburne Farms in Vermont; and of course, the annual Gala will be a highlight again this year on the 1st day of spring. We are excited to announce that our national CEO, Randy Fiser, will travel to Boston to attend as our

Board Messages and colleagues and celebrate ASID membership at an Industry Partner sponsored party.

Lisa Buyuk, ASID President-Elect Winter is typically a time to re-generate and hibernate. However I am happy to say that the Interior Design profession is wide awake and plowing its way through to spring. On a national level we have been working to strengthen the organization’s core structure through new offerings for professional development and clearer branding strategies. On a local level we are reflecting our growth through our partnership with Fuso and Four for the first ever Boston Design Week where all facets of ‘Design’ will be celebrated. Our partners at the Massachusetts Interior Design Coalition are also alive and kicking. Now more than ever, with our continued support, they are inching closer to passing legislation for the practice of Interior Design in the state of Massachusetts. 2014 just might be our year! I invite you to take the time to see what MiDC is up to… Take the time to join us at our Awards Gala in March and attend an event during Boston Design week. Forget what the groundhog said… Interior Design in Boston is wide awake. Spring is here!

Cheryl Morrison, Allied ASID

I look forward to chatting with you at any of the Chapter events. Be sure to look me up.

Jill Janasiewicz, Allied ASID Director of Professional Development As we start our new year with our chapter, I want to thank you all for your support, attendance and feedback that I received this past year. Our events were successful, informative and fun. I hope that the members who attended the “I” on Design Business Conference came away with new facts, new vendors and new friends. As was mentioned, January 2014 starts a new reporting period and with that, an increase to the required credits. Please note that the new requirement is 1.0 (or 10 hours) of IDCEC approved programs. We are planning new events for 2014, both educational and social so please visit our website. If you have any ideas or suggestions or would like to help out, please contact me at jillj1@verizon.net. I hope to see you all and continue to meet new members throughout the year.

Director of Finance Greetings to all of our Membership! Some of you may be wondering why I am back reporting on the finances for our chapter. I was asked to come back to the board and fill in when the new Finance Director had to step down. I will be filling in until such time as a new Finance Director is appointed. If anyone would like to fill this position, please contact Jeanne Finnerty, our President and have a chat with her. In the meantime, I am delighted to report that our chapter is financially sound. I expect that we will continue to remain so throughout the coming year. The current board has a lot of exciting activities planned for the upcoming year and I hope that you will support them by participating as much as possible in the events that are offered. I plan to attend as many as possible and hope to see all of you there.

Sheryll Strohl-Hammett, ASID Director of Membership Spring is such an energizing time of year and a great time to make and meet goals. On my ASID list of what I’d like to accomplish for the New England Chapter members is to meet and connect with as many of you as possible. I’ll be calling you new members to say “Hello” and “Welcome”. I also am planning to update our website Membership and Industry Partner Directories. Planning the ART WALK & MEMBER CELEBRATION for June 5, 2014 will soon be underway. The Emerging Professional Affairs Chair, Eric Haydel and I will again be co-chairing this event. June is designated as MEMBERSHIP MONTH so plan to celebrate your ASID membership and put the June 5 date in your planners. It promises to be great fun, inspiring, and full of treats for the eyes as well as the palate. After the “Walk get festive with friends

I wish you and your families a lovely spring after what has proved to be a trying winter. Stay warm, stay safe, and may 2014 bring you happiness and much success.

Molly McGinness, ASID Director of Communications Hello ASID NE! I am looking forward to spring and all the member events that are being planned. The ASID NE Awards Gala on March 20th should kick off a warmer season of lively activities. The Art Walk in June is especially appealing. Please stay tuned and check in with the website calendar for updates. I encourage all members to "socialize" with ASID NE on Twitter and our Facebook page. These social media avenues are a great way to connect and share design experiences and industry ideas. If anyone is interested in helping with our website and social media efforts, please contact myself or any board member. Thank you and happy spring!

Eric Haydel, Allied ASID Emerging Professional Affairs Chair Spring is on its way (so I hope very soon) and I encourage you to let us know when you are having events, show houses and other community events that you and your business are involved. We as a board want to celebrate and support your accomplishments and pass them on to the national office. Do not forget the deadline to submit information to NCIDQ if you are interested in sitting for the exam this coming fall. That deadline is June 2. If you

The ASID NE board members started the year off with a board meeting in New York City. We were very fortunate to be hosted by Hansgrohe at their beautiful flagship showroom in Manhattan, a stop I highly recommend for everyone. During the bus ride to the city, some of us were tired, some of us were under the weather, and some were just drained from sitting on the bus for hours, but when we hit NYC we all came to life. The power and the energy of design, in every aspect, just overwhelmed us; the skyline, architecture, shop windows, signs and advertisements, street fashions, staircases, jewelry, doorknobs, and flooring made of pennies. I could go on and on, there was something to marvel at wherever you looked. We turned into kids in a candy shop. It was so unexpected and refreshing to have this feeling of discovery and excitement. What made this experience particularly gratifying is that we were sharing it together as a group. I feel very fortunate to be a member of our ASID community where like-minded individuals realize the power of the design and how it enriches our lives and the lives of our clients. We all get caught up in the reality and demands of our jobs and often lose sight of what has brought us here in the first place, but it’s nice to get a reminder every once in a while, and even nicer to have someone to share it with.

Jessica O'Regan, Student ASID Student Representative to the Board I want to first thank all those who attended the student event in the fall. I was glad to see students of different schools come together and network with professionals, as well as to meet one another. I also want to thank those at William Hodgin’s office for welcoming us to tour the inspiring space and Poggenpohl for providing us with a fabulous reception. This semester I have had the opportunity to visit students at several of our design schools to discuss the benefits of membership. Becoming involved and attending events is a huge part of membership and I look forward to seeing you all at upcoming events. I also encourage you to bring classmates who are not yet members of ASID so they can see the value of becoming a member. For details, please visit our calendar at asidne.org, as well as our Facebook page and Twitter posts.

F I N E A R T L A M PS

For the spring, I have tried to incorporate a balance of educational, networking, and social events. If any professional members are interested in offering their time to students I would be happy to assist in making arrangements and as always, I am open to ideas from students for planning future events.

Editor’s Welcome By Diana Kennedy, Allied Member ASID So I’m sure that more than a few of you are surprised about our cover subject – the Massachusetts Interior Design Coalition. I know this because whenever I have brought up the topic of legislation in the design industry during various conversations in the last month or so, there is an instant, visceral reaction. Mostly a lot of guarded “oooooh”s, followed with a warning that perhaps I don’t want to go there because the subject is too controversial. This magazine is called “Design Community”. That means that this magazine is about us. About what defines us as an industry. And what defines us is not just about what unites us, but also what divides us. With the difficulty we have had as an industry in defining and promoting our own profession, this is not something that we can just sweep under the carpet. I have sympathies with both sides of the debate. Overall I am for the recognition and promotion of interior design as an industry, both legally and otherwise. I know how hard we all work and the talents we possess. I also am acutely aware with how we are perceived by those who do not appreciate our contribution and commitment to the ASID mission to “demonstrate and celebrate the power of design to positively change people’s lives.”

The State of Things: MiDC and the Interior Design Industry By the Design Community Staff As the economy continues its slow recovery, designers find themselves in increasing demand. But they also continue to battle misconceptions about their background and expertise. Currently, interior designers do not work under any sort of legal recognition (including licensing, certification, or registration) in the New England states save for Connecticut and Maine. There are strong voices within New England who, through the Massachusetts Interior Design Coalition (MiDC), are working within legislative channels to hold design professionals to the same standards as licensed architects and general contractors. ASID National has been supportive towards movements to effect legislative change.

Current MiDC Efforts In May 2012, MiDC hosted a very successful "Meet and Greet" for Senator Cynthia Creem. Senator Creem has been one of MiDC’s most active sponsors, as one of three legislators submitting legislation on behalf of MiDC, colloquially known the "Interior Design Bidding Bill". At the “Meet and Greet,” Senator Creem helped lead a discussion of how bills are passed. She also offered the group a chance to speak with her about the design profession, and in turn MiDC members expressed appreciation of her ongoing support. The Interior Design Bidding Bill is currently the only designer-centric bill pending at the State House for consideration. The MiDC believes that passing the bill would create efficiency and cost savings for Massachusetts by allowing nationally certified Interior Designers to be eligible to propose design services on projects that do not require a licensed architect or engineer. This bill does not create a separate license or registration for interior designers, mirrors the Federal service model, and has been passed by both branches of the legislature in previous sessions. This most recent version of the bill is currently with the House Ways and Means committee.

The Future Generation of Massachusetts Interior Design On September 25, 2013, students from all over Massachusetts congregated at the grand stairs of the State house with professionals and industry partners

to help support Legislation for Interior Designers. While the legislative process can be a bit intimidating for some, these budding professionals paired up and knocked on the doors of many of the state's legislative members. The students excitedly shared their experiences in various interior design programs, in addition to relaying their goals within the industry. The energy and buzz in the state house that day is one that the next generation of interior designers will not soon forget. On Friday October 18th, 2013 students from all over Massachusetts once again came together, only this time to speak with professional interior designers at The Interior Design Career Days. This is an annual event that is supported by ASID, IIDA, NKAB in addition to other industry organizations, with the goal to introduce students to professionals through forums, lectures, and tours. This multi-faceted day allows students to engage with professionals in a more casual and approachable manor. This year Christina Oliver, President of MiDC, delivered one of the key forums. Oliver discussed specifics about MiDC’s mission as well as the Interior Design Bidding Bill. Attending students received an introduction to the legislative process and started to understand future choices that they might have to make as professional designers.

Speaking Out for Change In the January/February issue of Design New England Magazine, Jean Verbridge, one of this year’s Gala Award judges, made her support known for MiDC’s legislative efforts. She stated, “What we do involves life (health), safety and welfare .... I am committed to this profession, and the more professional the profession, the happier I am.” Verbridge’s link between professionalism and happiness frames the debate in a way that ties it into the current state of the industry. It’s not just the happiness of the designer at stake, but for clients as well. While designers hold themselves to high standards, the legal confirmation of their skills and status will not only enhance the reputation of individual practitioners, but also lead to a more educated, informed, and appreciative public. MiDC is currently seeking members, volunteers, and donations. For further information, please visit their website at www.supportmidc.org.

Allied Industry Partners Designer Bath Hold its 2nd Annual “What’s on Tap” Event By Jill Janasiewicz, Allied Member ASID

On January 14th, ASID Industry Partner Designer Bath in Beverly hosted its second annual “What's On Tap” event. Product representatives of several of their lines were on hand to share some of their new products, their features and their benefits. Participants were divided into small groups and we visited each of the five stations for a 10 minute presentation. The groups consisted of design and building professionals.

Products that were featured were facets, sinks, a wall mounted toilet and shower systems. It was very educational and a great networking event. And as usual, the food and beverage portion of the evening was delicious.

Danvers Historical Society Presents

A Designer’s Holiday Show House Fundraiser Celebrating 50 Years of Stewardship of The Endicott Mansion at Glen Magna Farms By the Design Community Staff In 1963, the Danvers Historical Society saved the Endicott Mansion and Glen Magna Farms from demolition. Fifty years later, the Society celebrated that legacy with a Designer Show House and fundraiser, held on the grounds from December 1-15th, 2013. The event’s proceeds were designed to fund the restoration of the National Historic Landmark 1794 Derby Summer House (sometimes known as the McIntire Tea House, named after venerable designer Samuel McIntire) on the Glen Magna Farms grounds. The show house was the brainchild of Chairperson Sandra Biondo, who requested proposals for 15 rooms in the mansion. After a lengthy selection process, 18 designers and artisans were selected, including ASID members Donna Terry and Diana Kennedy, in addition to Yvonne Blacker of ASID Industry Partner Designer Bath. The site serves as a wedding and event venue throughout the year. The designers and artisans revived the décor of the mansion with that directive, as well as the building’s historical importance, in mind. The designers were encouraged to use furniture from the Danvers Historical Society museum collection in their spaces as the newly designed rooms would continue to be shown and used in the mansion’s daily activities. Influenced by wedding day colors and vintage clothing, Yvonne Blacker of ASID Industry Partner Designer Bath (working under Yvonne Blacker Interiors) designed the lounge formerly known as the Smoking Room as well as the adjoining powder room and hallway. An intimate and glamorous “away” space, it is the perfect spot to catch one’s breath after a spin on the dance floor, enjoy a bit of bubbly, idly converse, or whisper about the party in the main hall. The lounge featured historic wallpaper from Farrow & Ball and the powder room delighted visitors with a charming, woodsy mural.

The Bride’s Bath was designed by Diana Kennedy, Allied ASID, who created an updated Victorian look with both Parisian and Chinoiserie elements on display. Utilizing the room’s substantial height, Diana painted the walls with wide stripes of cream and beige. She then framed it with trellis wallpaper on the ceiling, softened the ambiance with a lovely skirt on the pedestal sink, and added a reupholstered ottoman from the museum collection along with a gold bamboo étagère. The result is a warm, dreamy space that combines traditional charm with a modern feel. Inspired by the beautiful carved fireplace that the Endicotts brought back from Egypt in 1932, Donna Terry of Boston Design and Interiors, Inc. set upon creating an Art Deco room design for the Drawing room with Neoclassical/Egyptian Revival roots. Howard Carter’s discovery of King Tutankhamen’s tomb in 1922 inspired a renewed passion in Egypt and the exotic, and Donna’s design accentuates that period’s newly inflamed interests. With decorative details such as loveseats in ballet slipper pink, custom artwork, and impressive Egyptian Revival sconces, Donna has created a drawing room that is both gracious and dramatic. ASID Industry Partner Landry & Arcari loaned their gorgeous rugs for display for a number of rooms during the event, and Designer Bath donated fixtures from their showroom as well. The Show House not only demonstrated the considerable design talent in the area, but also breathed new life into a historically significant building. The Derby Summer House’s past has been preserved, but its future looks brighter than ever.

ASID President Selected as a 2013 LEED Fellow for Distinguished Contributions to Green Building Innovation The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has selected Rachelle Schoessler Lynn, FASID, CID, LEED AP BD+C, as a member of the LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Fellows Class of 2013. Schoessler Lynn is president of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID); a senior associate with Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle in Minneapolis; and an adjunct faculty member at the University of Minnesota. LEED recognizes best-in-class building strategies, provides third-party verification of green buildings and establishes rating systems for projects designed to achieve LEED certification. LEED Fellows are accomplished individuals nominated by their peers and distinguished by the caliber of their contributions to advancing the field of green building. “The 2013 class of LEED Fellows is an extraordinary group of thought leaders, innovators and green building professionals dedicated to a healthy, sustainable future,” said Rick Fedrizzi, president, CEO and founding chair of USGBC. “Their commitment to LEED is transforming our built environment. We are honored to present these highly accomplished individuals with the LEED Fellow designation.” Randy Fiser, executive vice president and CEO of ASID, characterized Schoessler Lynn as a national leader on sustainable design solutions. “Rachelle has long championed design’s essential role in creating green buildings that improve lives and protect the environment,” he said. “The leadership and staff of ASID applaud USGBC for recognizing Rachelle’s tireless efforts and the critical role interiors play in sustainability. We congratulate Rachelle on the breakthrough her Fellow designation represents.”

Appointed by the governor of Minnesota, Schoessler Lynn served two terms on the licensing board for the State of Minnesota and has received numerous professional accolades, including ASID Minnesota Designer of Distinction and recognition from the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal as one of “40 Under 40.” Several of Schoessler Lynn’s projects have received national and state design awards, including her design of the Red Stag Supper Club — the first LEED-CI Silver certified restaurant in Minnesota. Schoessler Lynn was inducted into the ASID College of Fellows in 2009, presented with the 2011 Design Achievement Award from Iowa State University, and recognized as the 2004 Designer of Distinction by the Minnesota Chapter of ASID.

The New England Chapter of ASID Welcomes our Newest Members The following are those who have joined our chapter since the publication of the Winter 2013 DESIGN COMMUNITY.

Many Congratulations to Barbara Stemau On December 11, 2013 Barbara Stemau became a Professional Practitioner in The American Society of Interior Designers. The New England Chapter is thrilled for you!

Industry Partners Schoessler Lynn is one of only 51 accomplished sustainable building professionals to be selected as LEED Fellows this year. To earn this designation, LEED Fellows must have at least 10 years experience in the green building industry and hold a LEED AP with specialty credential, among other requirements. The LEED Fellow Evaluation Committee conducts the evaluation process, which the Green Building Certification Institute supports.

In the December issue of Interiors & Sources magazine, Schoessler Lynn offers her insights into the issues of transparency and product selection in sustainable design: “As a sustainable designer … I'm encouraged by the gains the industry has made around product information. Upgrades to LEEDv4, the Living Building Challenge and Architecture 2030 have been designed to take a more holistic approach to sustainability, especially with regard to the overall impact of the products we specify. Tools such as the 2030 Palette, LCA (life cycle assessment), EPD (environmental product declaration) and HPD (health product declaration) help to move beyond single-attribute considerations to an integrated systems approach that enables designers to better understand product impacts and select materials that perform well and look fantastic, without doing harm to the environment and people.”

While ensuring a comfortable, convenient and thoroughly enjoyable experience for my clients, she has the talent to enrich each space with wonderful pieces of art that put the final touches on a project.” – LESLIE FINE, LESLIE FINE INTERIORS

“We were very novice art collectors, and Jacqui did an outstanding job understanding our vague description of what we liked and how we envisioned our historic Back Bay home. She presented a tremendous selection of works. Jacqui reiterated the importance of ‘loving’ what we purchased, and we do!” – M.F., BOSTON

“Jacqui understood my client's esthetic immediately and brought over wonderful and affordable art that my client purchased. Jacqui was great to work with and the installation was flawless.” – CHRISTINA OLIVER, CHRISTINA OLIVER INTERIORS ASID NE Chapter President,2004-2005

January Board Meeting of the New England Chapter of ASID Board of Directors in NYC By Sheryll Strohl-Hammett, ASID

The New England Chapter of ASID Board of Directors meets once every month to check in, report Board-related activities of the various directors and chairs, and discuss Chapter goals, issues, and plans both long and short term. Typically these meetings take place in the fifth floor ASIDNE office at the Boston Design Center; however, the venue for the January meeting was a surprising and exciting change.

Industry

Partner

Hansgrohe and our Hansgrohe contact Jen Bruno organized a Hansgrohe sponsored trip for the ASIDNE Board of Directors to meet in New York City for the second year in a row. A private bus left the Boston Design Center the

members and arrived in the early afternoon in Lower Manhattan (The Meat Packing District) the location of the only Hansgrohe/AXOR showroom in Northeastern USA.

Our generous hosts registered us in the ever so posh and beautifully designed Standard High Line Hotel where once our bags were settled in our rooms we gathered for an ice skating party at the hotel ice rink. We then were escorted to dinner at the “Old Homestead Steakhouse”, an appropriate choice given the neighborhood. The next morning the ASIDNE Board met in the conference room at the Hansgrohe/AXOR showroom after a catered breakfast in the showroom. A most productive and lengthy meeting ensued. Then Jen Bruno presented a CEU to us about the internationally celebrated designers Phillipe Stark, Antonio Citterio, Patricia Urquiola, JeanMarie Massaud, brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Germany’s Phoenex Design, Sweden’s Front Design, and Japan’s Nendo, who have all designed innovative and exciting fixtures for Hansgrohe’s AXOR Division.

Lunch with our hosts followed at the French Bistro styled “Fig & Olive”. The group had a few hours to wander the neighborhood before the bus departed for Boston.

To Jen Bruno and our wonderful Hansgrohe hosts we say thank you for a most memorable meeting of the ASIDNE Board of Directors. As hardworking volunteers we feel so very grateful for the gift.

The Student Affairs Committee: Here to Support the Future of Design

modern traditional transitional

By Jessica O’Regan, Student Member ASID As many of you know, ASID is the largest and most historical professional association of interior designers in the world. The Society has 36,000 members; 10,000 of which are student members. In New England, The Board of Directors recognizes today’s students as the future of interior design. The Board encourages Professional, Allied and Industry Partner Members to become involved with students and for students to feel comfortable reaching out to professionals. Professionals and students alike are often too busy to even think mentorship, but I think it can be beneficial to both parties. The Student Representative to the Board (SRB) represents the voice of the students, serving as an ambassador between students and professionals. The Student Affairs Committee Chair (SACC) supports the SRB, ensuring the value and relevance of student events from a professional perspective. As your SRB, I would like to introduce this year’s SACC, Sarah Campernel, LEED AP, Allied ASID. Sarah Campernel is a New England Chapter member who both practices and teaches interior design. Sarah owns and operates Campernel Design Studio, based out of Portsmouth, NH, where she provides design and consulting services for residential and commercial projects, as well as event design and coordination. In addition, Sarah is an Assistant Professor of Interior Design at Endicott College in Beverly, MA. She holds a BFA from Montserrat College of Art as well as a BS and MS in Interior Design from Colorado State University. Sarah's area of expertise lies in evidence-based design, through which she uses environmental psychology as a foundation for all of her projects. For more information please visit www.camperneldesign.com or email sarah@camperneldesign.com. Sarah Campernel and I are here to support the students and to help students to pave the road to professionalism. Student involvement is very important to our design community and the Board welcomes students to join us at all events. Getting to know professional members is a great chance to develop your network and pave the road to professionalism. Professionals, please contact me if you are interested in sharing your background, stories, skills, etc. We are open to hearing any suggestions for student events in the future. I am also available to help students better understand the value of membership. Please visit our website for more information on spring events or contact Jessica O'Regan at joreg511@gmail.com
