Designer Profile: Lilian B Interiors, In Situ Design & Artist William Engel

Unlike the usual design sequence that ends in the acquisition of art, the artist executed his “pour” style paintings in a studio shared by the design team at the very beginning of the process. Vibrant colored paints shared layout space with like swatches of fabric, and materials while plans were being drawn in a dynamic and catalytic process. As the paintings materialized so did the rooms and as the rooms evolved so did the paintings. The art was both generative and responsive and not a decorative afterthought. Working together atelier style, the team literally lived and breathed the colors now on the walls and of the rooms at The William.
