Artful Harmony: Art as the Soul of Interior Design

Would you have a living room without a sofa? Or a bedroom without a bed? For Kelly Taylor Interior Design and Candita Clayton Gallery, art is simply a non-negotiable component of any interior.

Selecting that art can be a daunting task—but not when you have the right tools and team. In their decade plus collaboration, Kelly and Candita have honed the process of helping their clients learn to speak their souls and complete their interiors with art.

In this combination talk, Q&A and gallery show, they will share their secrets of integrating art with interior design. Joined by several artists and clients, this event will illuminate ways to not only get started, but to truly enjoy the experience, no matter your space or your price point.
