Talking about good design…

Boscobel

“Boscobel Style: Inspired Interiors & Exteriors for the 21st Century” will be the focus of the Spring Lecture Series at Boscobel House & Gardens.

The elegant early 1800s historic Hudson River estate on Route 9D in Garrison will serve as the fitting backdrop for the talks devoted to interior design, architecture and landscape.

In a release announcing the series, Boscobel’s executive director Steven Miller says, “Boscobel is all about style, beauty and design. The elegance of its architecture, its immaculate collection of Federal period furnishings and its breathtaking gardens all come together to create the perfect venue for a series of lectures focused on Federal interior and exterior décor.”

Thomas Jayne, principal of Jayne Design Studio, will kick things off April 10 with “Living With Antiques, A Quarter Century of Interior Design.”

The series will continue with:

  • April 24 – “The Art of Building,” with John Paul Huguley, principal of Building Art, LLC and a founder of the American College of the Building Arts.
  • May 8 – “The Language of Landscape: Simplicity, Scale & Structure,” with James Doyle, founder and principal, Doyle Herman Design Associates; and Kathryn Herman, principal, Doyle Herman Design Associates.

All events are from 6 to 8 p.m., with reservations required. Lecture seating is on stairs and chairs in the site’s historically upgraded grand entry hall. Wine-and-cheese receptions, sponsored by Munder-Skiles Garden Furniture of Garrison, follow in the Carriage House. Guests may chat with the speakers and purchase books for signing. Admission for nonmembers is $20 per lecture. Boscobel membership, which includes free admission to the site and all lectures throughout the year, is $40.
