I went to the Architectural Digest Home Show this weekend to see my former boss Vicente Wolf speak about 'The Zen Home' as part of the NY Times Designer Seminar Series. There were two other speakers with advanced degrees, one was a Feng Shui master, who spoke about symmetry, rules, and showed samples of their work.
Vicente, with no formal training, spoke about ignoring rules, following your gut, and learning to trust what looks and feels right for you. My friend and I commented on how Vicente's work was far superior to the other men's. Like his work, his speaking style was informal but informative, heart felt, and very funny. He speaks at design centers around the country, so if he's ever in your neck of the woods, be sure to see him, he doesn't disappoint!
