My Honorary Degree of Doctor of Fine Arts!

I am so proud and happy to report that I recently received an honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts from the New York School of Interior Design (NYSID).  NYSID was founded in 1916 and it remains today, New York’s only private, not-for-profit college devoted exclusively to interior design.  It’s guiding principle is that the interior design profession assumes an important role in ensuring that these spaces are beautiful, functional, healthy, safe, and built in a socially and environmentally conscientious way.  Many extraordinary designers have passed through this prestigious school’s doors and I was so thrilled to be notified that I was chosen, along with three other distinguished individuals, as a recipient of an honorary degree at NYSID’s ninety-fifth commencement exercises, recognizing my influence and contributions to the word of entertaining and style.
