DESIGNER Q&A WITH DERING HALL

 Below is a sneak peak of Dana Lyon's Q&A with Executive Editor Dennis Sarlo of Dering Hall. They talk about the launch of her new book, " REFINED-Design for Living Well " and her wish list for future designs.   Q: How did you decide to write and publish a book?    A: I have always been a design book junkie. I’ve collected them for years and have admired so many designers’ work. I wanted to create something that was top quality and put a stake in the ground for refined interiors that are well thought out but also simple and edited. The silver and gold packaging for the book looks timeless on a coffee table as well! As designers, we’re all out there sharing our ideas one home at a time.   Q: Your firm is also known for making sure that clients are “living well.” What does this mean to you?    A: We look to clients for what inspires their daily lives and try to incorporate that into the home in a meaningful way. We also take into account the natural surroundings, space, and light and accentuate all the positives. Additionally, we try to incorporate technology in a seamless way to make our clients’ homes more comfortable. Our homes should be sanctuaries that allow us to enjoy life.
