As an alumna of Cornish College of the Arts, Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty broker Marianne Francis is passionate about supporting her alma mater and the students that grace its halls. In autumn 2017, she was proud to co-chair the school’s annual gala, which helped raise $677,000 to fund student scholarships. True to the Cornish heritage, the evening’s entertainment included performances by Lady Rizo, a Grammy-winning performance artist and alumna of the Theatre program, and Amy O’Neal, an award-winning dancer and choreographer.
Your home serves as the outward expression of your inner-self, something of a vessel for your spirit. To capture that essence, clear structure, a thoughtful palette, and ambient lighting hold key roles; but it’s what you display in this space that makes it unique. Curating art for this blank slate is what makes a home uniquely yours.

From the October 2017 edition of Art & Home, Iyna Bort Caruso shows us that mid-century modern architecture isn’t just having its moment. It’s having an extended renaissance.
“It’s as if the mechanism that refreshes cultural trends every few years has developed a glitch,” wrote The New York Times.
The modernist style began in the late 1930s and took hold after World War II as new materials and building techniques became available that allowed architects to break with the past. Decades on, mid-century modern continues to feel fresh. And not just because TV’s “Mad Men” glamorized the style. It’s because the clean lines, open floor plans and expansive windows that characterize the style emphasize the “modern” rather than the “mid-century.”
“I’ve always been attracted to transformation,” designer Osman Yousefzada says casually. “When something breathes… you build an emotive relationship with it.”
It’s been a few months since Osman journeyed to Brazil to interact with a striking home and find inspiration for his 2018 line. The dress from the end of the video played a starring role, and it is something special to Osman. “There is just this sort of ease to the dress. You know?” says Osman. “You’re still the belle of the ball or a cool thing on the red carpet, but it’s easy. It’s confident.”
From the September 2017 edition of Art & Home, Iyna Bort Caruso shows us that a library can be a true reflection of your best self.
Walk into a personal library and you enter a realm, not just a room. No other space offers as much insight into a homeowner’s preferences, style and intellectual curiosity. They can feel intimate and consequential.
