The Atlanta Decorative Arts Center, in partnership with Hearst Design Group— Elle Decor, House Beautiful and Veranda—is beginning the summer with a fresh look and invites designers and design enthusiasts of all levels to INSIDE DESIGN. The series of design-themed sessions will focus on the newest products in home décor, ways to define personal style, develop strong web presence and find inspiration from a group of leading design experts.

On Wednesday, June 19 and Thursday, June 20, editors from the Hearst Design Group, including Newell Turner, editorial director of the Hearst Design Group; Amy Preiser, editor of ElleDecor.com; and Leslie Newsom Rascoe, contributing interiors editor of Veranda, along with other special design guests, will speak to attendees on how they can make design fit into their lifestyle this summer.

“This is the first time ADAC and Hearst Design Group will bring together three established publications for two days of events. Designers and design enthusiasts will be able to hear from not just one, but three prominent editors who will share insights from each of their distinctly different perspectives,” said Katie Belveal, ADAC general manager. “By teaming up with Hearst Design Group, we will be able to bring the best of the national design community to ADAC.”

“I am always excited to come to ADAC, and am particularly delighted this time as I get to discuss the evolution of how we make sense of our lives through design,” said Turner. “From the earliest days of journal-keeping and scrap-booking to the new ways we scrapbook with Pinterest and other digital methods, I’m very interested in how people assemble and keep track of images that are important to them, whether they are favorite patterns or textures or photographs that inspire.”
