How do today's leading designers keep a fresh perspective on traditional design? Combining distinctively classic taste with new ideas and engaging twists on well-loved themes and details, three noted designers: Allison Caccoma (San Francisco), Tiffany LeBlanc (Boston) and Ashley Whittaker (New York), share their tips and secrets on how to create tailored rooms that feel both familiar yet modern.  Traditional comfort continues to ring true, but engages our eyes with up-to-date color and patterns.  Bring your questions for a lively discussion, moderated by Boston Home Editor-in-Chief Andrea Timpano.


Allison Caccoma worked in finance on Wall Street before realizing her passion for design. She has been able to apply her finance background to running both her interior design business as well as her boutique home store in San Francisco.  She trained under Bunny Williams in NYC before bringing her East coast style to the West coast.  While majority of her projects are now California-based, she has a current project in Boston that she will speak to as well.

Tiffany LeBlanc, whose design studio is located in Boston’s vibrant SoWa design district, was nurtured by an artistic family and a lifetime of travel to exotic locations. Her designs are known for creating gracious architectural interiors that radiate warmth, harmony and comfort. Tiffany received her training at Boston Architectural College and her work has been featured in numerous publications. Tiffany was awarded “Best of Boston”, is on the Board of Governors for Gore Place and a member of the Design Leadership Network.

Ashley Whittaker, designer and author of the forthcoming book from Rizzoli, The Well-Loved House, reveals her fresh and modern perspective on traditional design and architecture in all of her work. The New York City designer’s interiors are characterized by tailored rooms that incorporate charming detail and engaging play on color and pattern. Listed on Elle Décor’s A-List of top designers, she has been published in The New York Times, Veranda, Southern Living, and more, and most notably, on the cover of House Beautiful on six separate occasions.
