Karen McCartney: The Alchemy of Things

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

17 Nov 2018

Explore the homes of 18 global creatives who take an eccentric, whimsical, curated and clever approach to their living space with Karen McCartney. McCartney will speak about her new book The Alchemy of Things: Transforming Interiors Through Objects. The book details a series of eighteen fascinating homes that come from a truly creative place, transcending conventional notions of collection and display. This new beauty taps into a craving for a personal space with rich layers, a little bit of oddity and an irrepressible joie de vivre. A mix of artists, interior designers, architects, collectors, gallerists, stylists, furniture designers and vintage retailers open the doors to their own homes – many for the first time.
