Santa Monica Public Library presents Secrets of Storytelling with Color and Light in Design, a hands-on color design session with Gloria Jaroff, AIA, on Saturday, June 17, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Main Library’s Multipurpose Room, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.

Need professional input for your home or office color palette? Interior Designer Gloria Jaroff leads an interactive, hands-on session with color and texture samples. Bring photos or printouts of your design problem – leave with a direction and a personalized color wheel you can take to the paint store. Gloria Jaroff, AIA, is an author, lecturer, East Coast licensed architect and interior designer. Using techniques from a new color system described in her book, The Nature of Color in Interior Design (available for purchase), she teaches storytelling techniques to express your own unique voice and personal brand of color.
