Design Royalty: Stephen Sills S tephen Sills — a member of the Architectural Digest AD100 and 30 Deans of Design, as well as the Elle Decor A-List — is one of the foremost designers in the world, known for his intellectual interiors. His designs not only achieve beauty and innovation, but also create a pervasive sense of luxury and calm. When approaching his third book, he told interior designer and writer David Netto — a contributing design editor to The Wall Street Journal, T - The New York Times Style Magazine, and Town & Country — that he wanted it to be a teaching book. The result, Stephen Sills: A Vision for Design (Rizzoli), is like a master class in Sills' design process, including mood boards, in-depth looks at projects, essays on architecture and landscape, and rumination on Sills' own style evolution, not to mention a foreword by Design advice: "Don't you think curiosity is everything? In life, in art, in work, and just living? I've never been afraid to change. The invention is what excites me about doing interior design. Never think of the challenge and discipline it takes to create new work that doesn't look like anything else you've done as work. That's the most important part." — Stephen Sills longtime client and friend Tina Turner and a conversation about gardens with friend and neighbor Martha Stewart, cementing the book's status as a resource for design lovers for decades to come. What, When, Where: Stephen Stills in Conversation with David Netto, Monday, September 19, 4:30 to 6:30 pm, at Wells Abbott Showroom, 1025 N. Stemmons Fwy., Suite 749, Dallas Design District. In a Naples, Florida, house designed by Stephen Sills, a column screen divides the semi- circular entrance hall, with a midnight-blue– painted ceiling.
