UCLA Extension Arc_ID would like to congratulate our soon-to-be graduate, Michelle Aitala, (pictured right) who has received a special award from Botique Design for her beautiful work at Morel’s French Steakhouse and Bistro at the Palazzo in Las Vegas. Michelle is a project designer with Ralph Gentile Architects. You can read her comments on the design process and approaches in Boutique Design (link) magazine this month!
We would also like to recognize ARC_ID Advisory Board Member Darrell Schmitt, ASID and his Design Associates for their Hospitality Design Award based on work for the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills. They will be honored on Thursday, June 4th at the Hudson Theatre at the Millennium Broadway Hotel in New York. The work will also be published in the May/June issue of Hospitality Design magazine.
ASID Allied Member and Arc-ID Student Rachel Winokur invites you to join her on a Green Decorator Showcase in a LEED Platinum and Green Point Rated home this July. The Showcase house will be part of a week full of highly publicized design events prior to the house tours. You can team up with a professional designer in each staging area to decorate, a set-up similar to the Pasadena Showcase or Greystone Mansion. The basic finishes and light fixtures in the house will already be completed, so decoration will primarily focus on wallcoverings, furniture and accessories. (www.ettadesigns.com)
