Program Change: New Speaker Frances Schultz

Carolyne Roehm, who was scheduled to speak at the de Young for Bouquets to Art on April 7 at 10:30 am, has had to cancel due to illness. We are pleased to present journalist, author, and television personality Frances Schultz in her place. 

Frances Schultz has spent her career writing about all beautiful things. A tastemaker and world traveler, she has a refined sense of style and understands the power of making life pretty. Her book The Bee Cottage: How I Made a Muddle of Things and Decorated My Way Back to Happiness is part memoir and part home-decorating guide, intended to motivate readers through their own “great muddle” to discover their own truths in decorating and in life. Her popular blog is a revealing window into her lively and sometimes laugh-out-loud writing as well as her inspiring style and taste. 

Schultz is a contributing editor to House Beautiful magazine and former editor-at-large for Veranda. She has also written for the Wall Street Journal, Town & Country, and New York Social Diary, and has appeared on The Today Show, CNN’s Open House, and the Nate Berkus Show, among other programs. For six years, she was the on-air host of the award-winning cable television show Southern Living Presents. Please join us in welcoming her to San Francisco.

Note: To keep flowers as fresh as possible, the temperature of the Koret Auditorium may be cooler than usual. Please dress accordingly.
