Lecture Feature: Jane Schwab and Cindy Smith

Jane and Cindy

The 2014 Art & Antiques Show is thrilled to welcome speakers, Jane Schwab and Cindy Smith of Circa Interiors & Antiques.

Join us on Saturday, December 6th at 1pm to hear about their new book, The Welcoming House, and to learn more from these Charlotte-based interior experts and tastemakers.

Welcoming House

“In their first book, THE WELCOMING HOUSE: The Art of Living Graciously, Schwab and Smith present beautifully arranged interiors in which the trademarks of their style—subtle color palettes, graceful furniture, an emphasis on comfort and entertaining— harmonize to create fresh yet timeless spaces. Walking the reader through homes with their characteristic Southern charm, they share their vision and process, from big-picture topics such as room flow and furniture plans, to the importance of entryways and setting a beautiful table. The lessons also extend from the interior to the garden, as Schwab and Smith discuss how outside spaces can become natural extensions of the home for entertaining. Throughout the book readers will find ideas for arranging rooms to welcome one, two, or four people as comfortably as fifty, establishing multi-functional, adaptable gathering places that are both gracious and functional for the family of the house as well as their guests.”
