Join color consultant Dee Schlotter for an in-depth discussion on how and why Frank Lloyd Wright selected the colors and materials for Fallingwater. You will learn how every specification for the house came from a source of inspiration with nature being the main muse, how engaging the senses influenced every aspect of the design, and how the materials selected continue to inspire architectural spaces. Retired from PPG after 29 rewarding years, Schlotter will also discuss her involvement in the creation of PPG’s Voice of Color palette inspired by Fallingwater.
