SOLD OUT | Lecture Series | Thursday, March 23

NOMA’s Lapis Center for the Arts

This year’s speakers are two powerhouses in interior and floral design.

Amanda Lindroth, a go-to interior designer and author of Island Hopping: Amanda Lindroth Design, is known for airy, relaxed, indoor–outdoor living and is an expert in the style of island charm. Lucy Hunter, based in the United Kingdom, is an acclaimed landscape and floral designer and author of The Flower Hunter. With a style that harks back to the early 20th century, Lucy’s work is constantly looking at ways in which we can soften and meld the boundaries between the inside and outdoors.
