Happy Tuesday, chic readers! We hope you had the most amazing Memorial Day Weekend and got some time off to celebrate with family and friends–even if it was via Zoom! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this incredibly fun interview with architect extraordinaire Ken Tate and his son–author and sales and marketing manager Duke Tate. 

 

 

This dynamic father-son duo is overflowing with talent. Listen in as I chat with them about what it’s like to work together in a family business, what project Ken still has on his wishlist and get insight into one of the most fascinating creative processes I’ve ever heard–that actually inspired some of the storytelling in Ken and Duke’s latest collaboration, The Alchemy of Architecture. Check out more of Ken’s breathtaking work below.

Check back next Tuesday when I’ll be talking with New York Times bestselling author Mary Kay Andrews not only about her incredible novels but also about the design style that has inspired more than one story!
