Interior dialogues

If you've always wanted to know more about interior decorating - perhaps enough to tackle a project of your own - here's a chance to learn about everything from space planning to budget planning, from window treatments to upholstered furniture, from wall coverings to furniture styles. Those and other topics will be covered by the designers of Hale-Williams Interior Design in Ruxton in a series of five sessions at Roland Park Country School, 5204 Roland Ave. The sessions with Tom Williams and Robert Hale begin this Thursday and continue on consecutive Thursdays through Nov. 19, from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The cost is $65. For more information or registration, call Denise Harper at 410-323-5500, Ext. 3045.

New at Winterthur, something musical

A design reminiscent of those featured on Baltimore's "fancy furniture," painted wood pieces from the early 19th century, graces a collection of porcelain accessories from Mottahedeh & Co. The collection was created for Winterthur, the house museum that is the former home of collector Henry Francis du Pont in Winterthur, Del. The Fanfare design of musical instruments and sheet music is from an 1811 watercolor by Christian M. Nestell. The pieces are among new products for sale at Winterthur's shop. (Sale of the products supports education programs at the museum.) For more information about Fanfare or Winterthur, call 800-448-3883.

Have a seat

A series of tiny, funky chairs by Christopher Daniel Studio Inc. is inspired by designs by Picasso, Kandinsky, Miro and Frank Lloyd Wright. The "Clip Chairs" are cut from nickel silver, stand about 6 inches high and feature clips at the top that can hold a favorite photo, a postcard or memento, place cards, or perhaps a recipe card. They're available for $25 each at ZYZYX!, an art, craft and jewelry shop in the Festival at Woodholme, 1809 Reisterstown Road. For more information, call 410-486-9785.
