Alabama born, Manhattan based Richard Keith Langham has been a force in the decorating world for over 30 years. After apprenticing under Mark Hampton and ten years with Irvine & Fleming, Langham founded his own firm in 1990. His keen eye and ebullient talent serve well in creating his signature rooms that speak to the past yet are brimming with luscious color, pattern and couture detailing. He is as adept at designing a sleek New York aerie as he is a log cabin in the woods and his clients are just as diverse—from the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to Hilary Swank. He has been named to Elle Décor’s A-List and Architectural Digest’s AD 100 for the past four years. His first book, About Decorating, published by Rizzoli, is to be released this October.

Susanna Salk is a designer, stylist, stager, as well as the author of many best-selling design books. Her first was the unexpected hit, A Privileged Life, Celebrating WASP Style which stemmed from her upbringing on Boston’s North Shore. Her latest book, At Home With Dogs and Their Designers: Sharing A Stylish Life is a pictorial celebration of the beloved dogs of some of the world’s top interior designers and the stylish life they share. Susanna also hosts the monthly “At Home With” video series on the Quintessence blog, which captures her visiting the homes of top designers and style makers around the globe. She lives in Connecticut with her husband and two boys.
