interior designer, historian, author
Paul Duchscherer (1952-2017) joined Artistic License in 1985 and distinguished himself through the design of historic interiors, and especially magnificent designs using Bradbury & Bradbury Art Wallpapers. A graduate of the Rudolph Schaeffer School of Design, Paul lived and worked in San Francisco for over three decades specializing in period-style projects for historic buildings. A proponent of historic preservation, his professional activities included lecturing, writing, and teaching about historic design. Paul’s expertise led to frequent appearances on various television programs, including the PBS series “This Old House,” and the HGTV series “Curb Appeal.” Paul authored numerous books, including The Bungalow: America’s Arts & Crafts Home, Inside the Bungalow: America’s Arts & Crafts Interior, and Outside the Bungalow: America’s Arts & Crafts Garden. For his luminous career as well as his tireless work in furthering the goals of Artistic License, Paul Duchscherer will be well-remembered, along with his kindness, his beautiful singing voice, and his signature laugh.
