Our most recent event, the unveiling of designer Amy Schuermann’s “Urban Oasis” design star room definitely reflected the energy of the summer season! It was an evening of colorful characters indulging in the company of friends, wine & hors d’ouvres, and the beautiful collaboration of art & design.

Amy’s “Urban Oasis” room is an indoor/outdoor retreat that captures and showcases the best parts of summertime. Her space transitions from a bold, bright & modern space to entertain guests to an evening wonderland reminiscent of sunset. The warm orange and purple, grounded with earth tones, are a stunning color combination! They pop with energy when the sun spills in, but soften in the evening—creating an inviting ambiance. She also brilliantly balances nature-inspired textures of wood and metal, that work together to achieve a contemporary & urban outdoor oasis
