An Evening of Inspired Design

with authors Julie Goebel & Caitlin Flemming; featuring stylist Jill Sharp Weeks

Please join us at Wild Life next week for an exciting evening with bestselling authors Caitlin Flemming and Julie Goebel to celebrate the release of their latest book, Sense of Place: Design Inspired by Where We Live. This highly-anticipated compendium of style chronicles how top designers and creatives envision their own living spaces by drawing on the inspiration of “place”. From the English countryside to the coasts of Mallorca to the deserts of the Southwestern US, Flemming and Goebel reveal the natural harmony found between homes and their exterior surroundings – along with practical tips for styling your own. 

Event Details

The authors will be in-store on Friday, October 20th from 4 to 7pm, for a meet-and-greet and book signing, followed by a panel discussion  at 5:30 – joined by interior designer and stylist Jill Sharp Weeks.  

During the event in Wild Life we will be serving hors’ d’oeuvres alongside a curated tasting of wines from the Willamette Valley in Oregon, a region hailed for its rich, contemporary viniculture. At the same time in Santa Fe Dry Goods and Workshop, we will be releasing a few special collections from some of our favorite designers, including Bokja, Kaval, Biyan and Uma Wang Runway.

We look forward to seeing you there!
