Design journalist to toop-drawer decorator, Ruby Ross Wood's (1880-1950) mantra of simplicity and "common sense" resulted in words and rooms that continue to influence to this day. After writing on decoration under her own name and as Elsie de Wolfe's ghostwriter, Wood put her words into practice and created interiors distinguished by their crispness, comfort, and eclecticism. In this lecture, Mitchell Owens will survey the colorful career of this American tastemaker who was hailed by her protégé Billy Baldwin as "The Finest Decorator Who Ever Lived."
Mitchell Owens is the special projects editor of Architectural Digest and an acclaimed writer on interiors, gardens, antiques, architecture, and high style.
