The Set Decorators Society of America (SDSA) will take their expert knowledge of mid-century art and design to Palm Spring’s annual Modernism Week this February.  Modernism Week is an all-encompassing celebration, punctuated with a modernism show and sale, films, lectures, signature home tours, modern garden tours and much more.

Partnering with WestEdge Design Fair, the Santa Monica-based event that will occur  November 3-6, 2016, SDSA will present a panel entitled Hollywood Designs on TV & Film. The panel will take place on February 14, 2016 from 1pm – 3pm and will focus on the ways set decoration and design in film and television have had an influence on American style.

Jeannine Oppewall, production designer of Academy Award® nominated films including LA Confidential and The Good Shepherd and Ellen Brill SDSA, set decorator of Emmy Award® nominated TV shows including American Horror Story and Nip/Tuck, will participate in a conversation moderated by interior designer and noted author on style and design, Cathy Whitlock. The panel will reveal their key influences, anecdotes and inspirations as well as exploring Hollywood’s continuing contributions to modern style.

A champagne reception and book signing of Cathy Whitlock’s “Designs On Film”  will immediately follow the panel in the Elle Décor Lounge, giving attendees a meet and greet opportunity with the panelists.
