The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Biography of James Swan

Category: Guest Writers  |  Permalink

Published: Tuesday, June 15, 2010

James Swan is head of New Wall Enterprises, LLC a Beverly Hills-based design and lifestyle group focused on delivering smart-design-daily to consumers across the country and around the world.  As a lifestyle leader he has been featured in House & Garden Magazine, House Beautiful and the Los Angeles Times.  He has chronicled a Trends & Shopping column for House & Garden Magazine, as well as his own design blog, The Design Quotient (www.designquotient.com). Adding author (with the soon to be published 101 Things I Hate About Your House) and speaker (NeoCon West) to his accomplishments has further broadened his influence.  A recently launched pre-publication Facebook Fan Page features "101 Things I Hate About Your House" (http://is.gd/aYq5r) with inspired interaction from a growing following of Swan's work.   Swan's career took off back in Northern California at a noted San Francisco architecture firm, where he managed residential interiors. After that, Los Angeles beckoned, specifically the prestigious firm of Frank K. Pennino & Associates, where as senior designer he managed high-profile projects, and earned a reputation for refined classical design that succinctly reflected his clients' lives.  In 1999, Swan opened his own firm in Beverly Hills.   Recently his talents earned him VoxVodka/Out Magazine's Designer of the Year Award.  In April 2009 Ballard Designs (www.ballarddesigns.com) announced their first collaboration with a nationally known designer, James Swan.  His first 40 piece signature collection of home furnishings and accessories (James Swan for Ballard Designs) will debut in March 2010.    From 2005-2009, Swan has been a member of the Executive Board of Directors of the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund.  His other community commitments include PAWS/LA, which assists with the care of pets for people living with disabilities, and KidSmart, an art education foundation for inner-city youth.  In his free time, Swan may be found indulging his passion for gardening, skiing and travel.  Currently he divides his time between Beverly Hills and Pemaquid, Maine.
