William “Willie” Riddle is the executive director of the Venetian Arts Society and the president of Inspired Interiors of Fort Lauderdale. Although these days he focuses primarily on organizing concerts and other cultural arts events throughout South Florida, the reputation he has developed over the last 20 years as an interior design consultant precedes him. According to Willie, we often craft a public persona, one that’s reflected in the way we dress, the cars we drive or even the company we keep. But it’s the place where we rest our heads and recharge that best represents who we really are. “There is definitely an art to living a fulfilling and serene life by finding common ground between comfort, style and personality,” says Riddle.
