ASID American Society of Interior Designers 2 – design orange county Letter from the President “All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves.” --Anatole France Dear Members, This is my final presidential letter, as my term is officially complete the end of September, and Sheila Hupp, your new president, will be sworn in at installation on Saturday, September 18th. It will be a wonderful evening, as we honor those who have served us this year, and welcome Sheila and her vision for the coming year. The icing on the cake, of course, will be the announcement of our Design Excellence Award winners. This is graduation and the academy awards all wrapped into one! I have truly loved serving you all this past year, and, in many ways, I have wished for more time just for ASID, in order to fulfill every idea I have thought might improve our service to you, our members. The challenges of attempting to meet the needs of demanding clients in our current climate of imported goods, diminished quality control, and overex- tended trades, however, have brought me quickly back to reality. Though I cannot have that extra time, I will leave a part of myself behind forever with ASID, and I will continue to serve you as past president, as ethics chair, and as part of the nominating committee for 2005. We have been fortunate to have a multitude of our visions for 2003-04 realized. We have enriched our friendships and respect for our fellow designers, and learned that it is possible to have differing views on legislation and still benefit from the good that we each have to offer to our chapter; we have enriched our resources through our outstanding fall trade show and our tabletop events; we have enriched our future though sharing our knowledge and skills with our students at our student career day event; we have enriched our status in the community through our exposure on TV design shows, our 2004 Design House, and Orange County Home and other local shelter magazines; we have enriched our knowledge of our profession by learning something new at our programs and sharing our knowledge and sources with one another; we have enriched our financial success through the opportunities to expand and showcase our practices; and we have enriched our professional status through testing and advancement opportunities in greater numbers than ever before! Clearly, professionalism is on our collective minds, and we, your leaders are cognizant of that and are planning to expand your professional image through your involvement with ASID. This is the second of our quarterly newsletters to keep you informed, bring you new sources and opportunities, and provide new venues for your participation. Our newsletter is also available on our website, with interactive ad capability, allowing you to really take advantage of the featured advertisers who provide web links. The web site itself is currently under re-construction, after a long year of research and evaluation, and promises to provide so many wonderful services to all levels of membership. If you have not taken advantage of the portfolio feature of the website, you are allowing those of us who have to enjoy the business that could be coming your way! We will have another tool for you this winter as well, as our directory will be published by a new company, providing additional income to our chapter, allowing us to offer more services to you, our members, and an additional benefit to our valued IP members. By the time you read this, construction will have begun on our new ‘storefront’ ASID office, located between California Style and the new Cisco Brothers showroom at the Laguna Design Center. While the space is still small, at just under 500 square feet, it will provide a new presence for ASID in a design center that caters to both the public and the design community. Our visible presence provides a forum for new referrals for our designers, and a vehicle for positive, continuing communication with our friends and vendors within the center, as well as a convenient place for our committee gatherings. Many thanks to Rita Brown, ASID, who has been assisting us with this project! As I look back on all we have done this past year, I see the faces of all those who have assisted to make the changes possible. I’ve been the cheerleader, they’ve been the team, and I could not have asked for a better one. My sincere and heartfelt thanks to “THE TEAM”: Harriet Rogers Sheila Hupp Marianne Kreter Linda Leach Diane Sparacino Sandra Corbitt Debra Croll-Bailey Carol Lamkins Bunny Sutherland Jerry McKnight Beth Whitlinger RoxAnn Johnson Mike Echolds Jamie Namanny Kathleen Kaiser-Rifken Georgia Walling Linda Enochs Tamra Mundia Susan Wesley Jill Scheetz Mary Swift Deirdre Eagles Barbara Belote LeAnn Tamaribuchi Bridget Raney Many thanks to all of you for your support throughout the year!

ASID American Society of Interior Designers 4 – design orange county Letter from the President-Elect Dear Members, What an act to follow! Beverly has been such a gracious and dedi- cated leader of our chapter that I look forward to the upcoming Presidency of our chapter with anticipation and a bit of trepidation! During this past year I have had the opportunity to work on a number of chapter projects including the 2004 Philharmonic House of Design, and both of our community service projects: the Phoenix Project and the Ronald McDonald House. What has struck me the most while involved in these projects and the other workings of the chapter is the incredible dedication of our members to their profession and to our chapter. The adage “If you want something done, ask a busy person” has certainly proven to be true. I know that despite our hectic schedules, those who have taken the time to contribute to the chapter in large and small ways have benefited in ways they had not anticipated. New friendships have been formed, old friendships have been strengthened and we all have grown. There are so many rewards for taking an active participation in the chapter. Not only do we have the opportunity to serve our chapter and the community, the networking done while engaged in these activities is invaluable. Discussions of common problems, sharing of resources, job leads and even referrals by fellow designers are some of the things that regularly occur when working closely with our associates. To those who ask “What is our ASID chapter doing for me?” remember that what you get out of an experience is usually parallel to what you put into it. How have you contributed to your chapter this past year? We have such a divergent group of designers with such an incredible wealth of knowledge to share, I challenge you to take part in your chapter and reap your rewards! Do you realize that if each of our professional and allied members gave just two hours a month of their time, we would reap approximately 7,200 hours of volunteer time? This is an incredible amount of time that could benefit others, distribute the burden of work from just a few, and reward us all. This upcoming year is going to be filled with many opportunities for you to become active in your chapter. Not only will we be participating in the 2005 House of Design and other showcase events, we will be given an opportunity to present ourselves to the public in many new ways relating to our new ASID office and its visible presence in the Laguna Design Center. Our new updated website is going to inform and educate our members like never before and present us to the public as the professionals we are. The new “branding” of ASID and its promise “Where Design Comes to Life” will help us all to grow and evolve as better designers and stewards for our clients, the profession, society and the environment. I look forward this year to meeting our many new members, and to working with all of our dedicated members who give so generously of their time. If you have not been active in the chapter before, won’t you join us this year, and see how much your organization can give back to you with just a limited invest- ment of time from you? Regards, Sheila Hupp, ASID,CID President Elect American Society of Interior Designers ASID fall 2004 –5 “Labor of Love” Project - The Orange County Ronald McDonald House Cont. from page 1 Our project progress, since its official beginning on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2004, has been remarkable! The color palette, consisting of twelve handsome tones of green, purple, blue, yellow and white, was selected by the ASID Steering Committee - Beverly Stadler, Bunny Sutherland, Jamie Namanny and myself. The floor products were painstakingly selected. The designers and associates took these begin- ning pieces of the project puzzle and created magic! They selected their fabrics, furniture, light fixtures, and accessories for their individual spaces. They introduced their designs on beautiful presentation boards to the Labor of Love group. Later, the these boards were carefully reviewed by The Ronald McDonald House Oversight Committee, consisting of Deborah Levy (Executive Director), Susan Marty (House Manager), Bill O’Keefe (Original Architect), Mike Harrison (Board Member and Original Contractor), Beth Phillips (Original Interior Designer), Chuck Lee (Original Superintendent), Linda Paternie (Board Member), Debbie Lawler (Vice President and Board Member) and myself. Are you exhausted yet? Wait … there's more to the story! Jill Sheetz, and Bridget Raney during their presentation at our meeting. Not only are our pro-bono Labor of Love Volunteers providing their time, designs and specifications, but they are also generously funding, along with the Décor, Sterling Carpet, Smith Brother’s Floor Contractors, Konni Brooksher, House, their spaces!

House of Design By Marianne Kreter ASID, CID, IDS Chair, 2004 Philharmonic House of Design I hope everyone has seen the wonderful coverage of the 2004 House of Design that appeared in the August issue of Orange County HOME magazine. Martin King’s photos are wonderful and the magazine editor chose Martin’s spectac- ular picture of Lori Hankin’s Dining Room for the cover!!! Congratulations to all the designers for a really outstanding event and thank you for your commit- ment of time, energy and tremendous talent! ! I only wish the magazine had space to feature pictures of ALL of the rooms and ALL the designers. Hopefully these will be shown in the future. I hope our members will save these fabulous pictures so that you can look at them in the future and savor special details. It is by learning and growing with each other that we continually raise the quality of design in Orange County. This House contained special lessons and ideas absolutely everywhere! The members of the Philharmonic are now looking for a house for the 2005 season. If you know of an appropriate property, call me and I will get the word to the chairperson of the search committee. Now is the time to start to think about getting involved in the NEXT house! I know that this year’s designers found their participation to be a valuable asset to their business. If you have questions about participation in the future, volunteer activities or a special aspect of the whole project, please call me at (949) 644-8766 or one of the designers. “ What A Difference!” “ What A Difference!” Since 1987 Features Since 1994 Features Fabric Protection & Cleaning Colorless & Clear, Liquid U.V.

Brown, ASID, CID By Jamie Namanny, Allied Member ASID, Awards Chair Orange County ASID Chapter is honored and fortunate to have Rita Brown as a participating volun- teer. Rita is currently overseeing the new Laguna Niguel ASID office construction and furniture dona- tions. The new ASID office will benefit greatly due to Rita’s extensive back- ground in commercial interior design. Rita Brown has an impressive background in experience and education. Rita’s current employment is with Hoag Memorial Hospital in Newport Beach as their interior designer for the medical facility and support offices. Rita is an instructor at the Interior Designers Institute in Newport Beach teaching space planning, commercial and residential design. Previous employers were Citibank, Roy Jorgensen Associates, Union Bank of California, Sheridan Design Group and Xerox Corporation. She holds degrees from the University of California at Irvine and the Interior Designers Guild of Newport Beach. Rita is associated with ASID, IIDA, IFMA, NCIDQ and is a CID. ASID achievements have been Student Liaison (developed Mentor Program), Ethics Chair, past Vice President, Strategic Planning Committee, past NCIDQ Proctor and Chair and past NCIDQ test grading. Rita’s goal is to become LEED certi- fied. Rita Brown expresses a memorable experience of meeting William Rishebarger, who became her mentor and taught her to achieve her best and pursue inte- rior design and architecture as an interacting force. He said she should always remain true to herself and not compromise decisions to create the best design possible. Rita’s greatest reward is in seeing a client’s reaction to the completed project. Rita’s interests are reading, needlework, cooking and traveling overseas. She wishes to learn to play the piano, paint and to pursue more traveling. She also has a future goal to become involved in animal rescue centers. While living a very active life, Rita allows time to care for her aging/medically challenged parents.
