Beautiful Design Ideas for Entryway the Story by Lesley Harris Colvett

Entertaining season is upon is, and from Halloween to New Year’s your entryway will be the first impression of your home. 4Memphis turned to our design experts for creating a well-appointed entryway. Allyson James Design

3566 Walnut Grove Road Memphis, TN. 38111 901.281.8687 allyson@allysonjamesdesign.com

We all know the importance of first impressions. The entry hall is the first interior room of a home and the perfect canvas to create a cozy, clever and unique atmosphere where grandeur and modesty live side by side. The vital combination of practicality and personality is why some homeowners put as much thought into their entryways as they put into the other rooms. When weighing different entry design ideas, I always start with one inspirational piece, whether it is a wallcovering, painted finish, a collected piece of furniture, accessory or art. Once inspired, I like to consider how each of these individual elements will be sympathetic to each other: Flooring If your tendency is to go bold, consider a colorful concrete tile like “Dandelion” in marine and bone by Marrakech Design, or a parquet floor with a bold, historical pattern. Area rugs not only provide color, but a buffer from bringing outside elements into the interior spaces of your home. Try an indoor/outdoor rug that resembles sisal for a more natural look that wears well. Wallcovering and Paint This is the one place that I like to go bold. Consider a handscreened wallcovering like Kelly Wearstler’s “Crescent” paper in teal and cream, or a faux bois painted finish that looks like you have paneled your walls in an exotic wood. For the paint lover, I like a high gloss enamel finish by Fine Paints of Europe. Furnishings Select an entry table or chest that is both functional and a conversation piece. An antique venetian hand painted chest adorned with modern accessories or a modern piece with an antique blue and white porcelain is always an interesting approach to balancing a variety of styles. Remember, this is most likely to be a catchall place, so a tray of some sort for keys or mail should be considered. A mirror for your guests to make any necessary last-minute adjustments to their appearance is

a nice consideration, but it also provides reflective, natural light from surrounding windows allowing light to bounce around, making the space feel larger. Lighting & Art Convert a piece of pottery into a lamp adding a custom-patterned shade for color for your entry chest. I like a small bell jar for lighting for a small entry with low ceilings. If your walls are bold, select something simple like framed charcoal sketches on white paper or collect a piece of fine art. David Lusk Gallery, Linda Ross, Jay Etkin, Robinson Gallery and Crosstown Arts all represent a wide range of incredibly talented artists, if you are interested in collecting. The entry is the one place that sets the mood of what is to follow, be it quirky and colorful or calm and simple. It is the introduction of the space to come, so give your guests a reason to knock on your door.

Cindy McCord Design

1289 South DuBray Place Collierville, TN 38017 901.610.3907 cindymccord.com

It is often said that a person’s eyes are the window to the soul and a foyer is just that - the “window” to a person’s home. It’s where we first receive our guests, so it’s important that it says “welcome.” Afterall, we never get a second chance to make a good first impression. Whether you are designing a new foyer, remodeling an old one, or simply enjoying the one you have, there are always things to consider when decorating this space. First and foremost it must speak welcome and warmth to your guests. You can achieve this with architectural features, color, furnishings, lighting and fresh flowers. Bring color in with a focal point of a piece(s) of art, a large scaled wall covering, or interesting area rug! Use a beautiful upholstered bench or console table with decorative pieces. Lighting is so important! My motto is you can never have too many lamps or sconces in a room! Soft lighting in a room (no matter what room) is the key to warmth and an inviting atmosphere. And finally, fresh seasonal flowers always say “welcome” and help with color as well!

A. Shaw Style

2485 Parkway Place Memphis, TN 38112 901.454.6200

The foyer sets precedence for the rest of the home, and as a designer I look at the overall scope of the house then decide the tone of the entryway. This space can have so many personalities- dramatic, subtle, relaxed. A good designer can reflect all while expressing the client’s from the foyer leading into the rest of the home. This space should be treated like any other room. I would look at flooring options, lighting, trim details, furniture, art, and paint or wallpaper. All of these elements are pieces that complete any space and are key to infusing it with character. The holidays are upon us and the foyer truly is where homeowners will meet and greet friends of old and new. I, as a designer, want to pick more classic objects and paper but with an edge versus trends that quickly become dated. Size matters! One needs to look at scale and determine if it is a smaller and intimate space that would allow for a console and artwork, or is it a large greeting hall where a center table and sculpture is possible? Bringing in mirrors is a great way to reflect light and add dimensions. Paint and paper can create a bolder effect- and those possibilities are endless. An entryway may be the first room a visitor sees, but it can truly encompass the personality of the home.

"La vie en rose" is French singer Edith Piaf 's signature song. It was released in the late 1940s and has been covered by artists dozens of times over the years. Most well-known versions are by Grace Jones and Donna Summer. Just like the famous song, the color pink has many different variations and can be worn by all kinds of women. And not just any old pink, but every shade from blush to rose to magenta to burgundy. The shades range for every woman to enjoy and to find her favorite hue. The really fun thing about wearing pink right now is that it is treated like a neutral and mixed in with every other color and print imaginable. Wear it alone or paired in a traditional color combo or throw it on with some leopard. It doesn't matter. Pink is being celebrated in every shade from baby soft to shocking babe and the following pages show just how easy it is to wear every single one. We shot our editorial in the gritty backdrops naturally provided by the landscape in South Main District's Washington Heights area. These seemingly neglected spots give the perfect foil to such pretty colors and styles and make for some interesting fashion. Tangled up in Pink Light blush and deep rose tie-dye beautifully and look even better with a dramatic matching wrap. Dress and scarf from Kittie Kyle. Necklace by Allie Rox and ring, both from Hollie Winter Fine Jewelry. Purse from Joseph. Boots, model’s own.

#4GALLERY

Literally more than any one person can take in, the offerings this month run the gamut. October is prime time, especially for outdoor events such as the Pink Palace Crafts Fair (can you believe, 46th year!), Art on Fire, and River Arts Festival. The latter is expanding in a big way, moving from South Main down to the water’s edge, which should add energy, scenery, and more parking options. The opera season kicks off (not that those 30 Days of Opera in September were exactly time off) with a beloved classic. Great jazz coming from Jeff Hamilton and Kirk Whalum. I won’t belabor the point with an overly long intro when there is a truly exciting list to get to. Please go and support the arts, the artists, and our community – I promise it will be enjoyable. - Ken Hall Kirk Whalum

Party on the Plaza

Church Health, Crosstown Concourse, 7pm


&

Greg Graber Suzanne Henley Book Signing

Church Health recently hosted a book signing in their Welcome Center in the West Atrium at Crosstown Concourse. Local authors Greg Graber and Suzanne Henley were the featured speakers for the event. In Slow Your Roll: Mindfulness For Fast Times, Greg Graber shares his practical, no-nonsense techniques for mindful living. Suzanne Henley’s Bead by Bead: The Ancient Way of Praying Made New offers a different approach to introspection. Both books are available at Burke's, Novel, and Amazon.

Q&A with the Party on the Plaza Planners:

Ken Hall

&

Janie Lowery 4M: How early do you start planning Party on the Plaza for Church Health? JL: I think we sent a "save the date" to last year's partygoers in April and started having meetings about the band and arrangements in May or June. KH: We also had to contract to rent the space even earlier. The enormous popularity of Crosstown means that various event spaces in and around the complex book up well in advance. 4M: What makes Party on the Plaza unique? JL: The setting is fantastic. Out on the plaza with the fountains and the ambient light of Crosstown Concourse as a backdrop, it just has a great look and feel. And it is the right size. It is not as large as some other events and is very comfortable for mingling with short lines for food & beverage. KH: Church Health has 31 years of community service in a very grassroots way; we have never really gone the route of the upscale gala, and this event is very nice but with a casual atmosphere. I think it fits with who we are. JL: Yes, also thinking about who we are as an organization - we are so appreciative of our friends in the restaurant community for supporting this event with food donations. Many, many restaurants workers are Church Health patients (as are musicians and artists) so this is a full-circle relationship in a sense. 4M: What's new with your second year of the event? JL: A new VIP experience with a great pre- and post-party and multi-media experience with our headliner. KH: This will be a night of Rolling Stones music from a terrific group called Black Jacket Symphony that Resource Entertainment Group found for us. They have an over-the-top multi-media show which I think will just blow everyone away. The second annual Party on the Plaza to benefit Church Health will be held on Friday, November 2, at Crosstown.

although

50.8%

of the United States’ population is female...

When women support each other, incredible things happen. the average woman earns only

$.82

for every dollar the average man grosses

When women support each other, the world is her oyster; truly anything is possible. That is why Memphis Girl Scouts created the National Stand Beside Her Movement to encourage women and girls to sing each other’s praises, to be each other’s best source of support and to be the ones who change the culture of comparison and competition among females. Comparison and competition formed on the playground often carries over to the boardroom and in the home, preventing women from reaching their fullest potential. When we waste valuable energy comparing ourselves to others, we miss the opportunity for growth in our own lives. Let’s create a world where all women and girls are appreciated for their talent, strengths and uniqueness.

and only

Join us and Stand Beside Her.

6%

of Fortune 500 company CEOs are female

Join us for National Stand Beside Her Week October 28 - November 3, 2018

and only

10%

5 Ways to Stand Beside Her 1

Invite a junior colleague for coffee.

2 Volunteer with women and girl-serving organizations. 3 Donate to nonprofits that improve the lives of women and girls. 4 Register to vote and be informed. 5 Watch your words. Avoid terms that stereotype women.

Created by Memphis girls for Memphis girls and women, The National Stand Beside Her Movement encourages girls and women to connect and support each other; to value ourselves and have the confidence to celebrate our own unique gifts and applaud the successes of others. We commit to change our current culture of negative comparison and competition and learn to celebrate and lift up each woman and girl so that we can change the world.

Salud! Cooking School at Whole Foods, Poplar Avenue Pumpkin Polenta with Roasted Root Vegetables Vegeta b les : 2 carrots, peeled and medium dice 2 medium parsnips, peeled and medium dice 1 red onion, medium dice 1 medium rutabaga, peeled and medium dice ½ pound Brussels sprouts, end trimmed, outer leaves removed and quartered 3 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 ½ teaspoon ground sage Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Toss all of the vegetables together with the olive oil, garlic powder, ground sage; season to taste with salt and pepper. Spread out on the prepared sheet pan in a single layer and roast until vegetables are crisp/tender and caramelized, about 20 minutes. While the vegetables roast, make the polenta: in a medium saucepan bring the stock, milk, butter, salt and pepper to taste just to a boil. Lower heat and slowly whisk in the cornmeal, constantly whisking to keep lumps from forming. Continue to whisk and cook until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Whisk in the pumpkin puree and brown sugar until heated through. Add in the parmesan and whisk to incorporate. Adjust seasoning as needed and keep warm until the vegetables are finished. In a small fry pan, coat the bottom with olive oil and heat over medium high heat. When hot, add in the sage leaves and cook until lightly browned and crispy. Drain on paper towels and reserve for garnish. In a large bowl, whisk together the Dijon mustard and apple cider vinegar; toss the roasted vegetables while still warm in the vinegar mixture. Drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of the sage oil over top of the vegetables and check for seasoning. To serve, place the polenta in the bottom of a serving dish and top with the roasted vegetables.

Mr. & Mrs. Walker Bartlett

Walker Bartlett and Katie Feehan met when they were freshmen in high school, so they are high school sweethearts! Walker played hockey and so did Katie's brother, Michael. They always say that hockey brought them together. They enjoyed 7 years of dating before getting married, and they consider themselves blessed to have spent all those fun years together. They went to college together at the University of Missouri and graduated 2 weeks before their wedding. It was a busy and exciting time! Walker says his favorite moment was when Katie walked down the aisle and she agrees! They had been anticipating this day for so long, so the emotions that came with that moment were so sweet. There is something indescribable about the moment before you get to marry the love of your life. They had a lot of out of town guests, so they wanted them to experience the city they love so much. Katie and Walker want to say thanks to all of their AMAZING wedding vendors--planning was very smooth and they helped create the day of their dreams! They went to St. Lucia for our honeymoon and stayed at the Sandals Grande St. Lucian! After the rush of the past year, it was the perfect vacation. They can't wait to go back for an anniversary trip!!

Engaged! Scovia Wilson & Brandon Rushing Brandon and Scovia first met through mutual friends at Hog & Hominy. Eventually, Scovia landed a job at the Memphis nonprofit, Operation Broken Silence (OBS), an organization that supports and empowers Sudanese refugees through education, storytelling, and advocacy, and where Brandon serves as a Board Member. They reconnected their friendship and for the next several months, Brandon and Scovia got to know one another better. Upon hearing that there was a young man interested in Scovia, her parents flew to Memphis from Belgium to meet him. Brandon asked Scovia's dad for her hand in marriage, and to Brandon's delight, this meeting went well. Fast forward a few months, Brandon and Scovia decided to surprise Scovia's dad for his 50th birthday in Belgium. Little did Scovia know that she too would be surprised on this trip. Brandon popped the question in Brugge, Belgium, October 31, 2017. Brandon and Scovia are grateful for one another and truly believe that God put them together for a reason and a purpose. They are absolutely ecstatic to tie the knot July 21, 2018, and are so incredibly thankful to the Lord for bringing their paths together.

Editor’s Note By: Langston Myers

In October, most people aren’t still thinking about summer camp, but I am. Of course I miss the fun activities like skiing, banana boating, and the view that I am convinced cannot be beaten by any other camp, but these aspects, which can be found at any camp in America, were not what left an impression on me. This camp was different. This past summer, I spent three weeks in Malibu, British Columbia as a part of Young Life’s Work Crew staff. When I signed up, I had no idea what I was getting into, in both good and bad ways. Before I arrived in Canada, I knew very little about what I would be doing. I had been to Malibu before as a camper, so I assumed that the work crew experience would be moderately similar to that of a camper. I was wrong. Soon after I arrived, I found out a couple of specifics that I wished I had known before I agreed to spend twenty-one days of my summer working. I would not get a single day off or be able to participate in any camper activites. I would be working in the rain 50% of the time and would eat the same set of meals for three weeks every week (including the curry that my friends on the kitchen staff should not have attemped to concoct); but most importantly, that I would be a part of the only staff crew that doesn’t have any contact with campers. Work crew staffs are divided up into the dining hall staff, the pits staff, the retail staff, the housekeeping staff, and the outdoors staff. Dining hall staff serves the campers food every day. Pits staff washes dishes and runs out to help serve during lunches and dinners. Retail staffworks the camp store and sees campers 24/7.

<<designed by : Mary Grace McAuley

Housekeeping helps campers when they need new sheets, pillowcases, towels, etc. But I was a part of the outdoors staff, which meant that I had to actively avoid campers so that the sound of my lawnmower or leaf-blower wouldn’t bother them. Working with campers may not seem important to most, but when you are volunteering for a month further from home than you’ve ever been and you’re running on five hours of sleep every day, recognition for your hard work can be the difference between a good or a bad day. Campers were the source of all praise and because of this, I quickly realized that I was jealous of my friends on the other staffs who were in the camper’s line of sight and were constantly validated by them. This made me realize a lot about myself. I wanted attention for doing something that was supposed to be selfless. As time went by, I realized that I was actively thinking this and decided to find motivation in other ways besides recognition. I found it in scenery, in the people I worked with who made me laugh even when days were long, but most importantly, I found it in myself. There was absolutely nothing I would get out of working diligently and trying to do well at my job. I would not be graded. I would not be reviewed for performance. But while I was there I remembered that serving other people can bring you so much joy, and that made me want to give my all even doing the jobs I hated.

Forever Friends By: Ella Coffey

Every year St. Agnes Academy’s Pep Club and Forever Friends Club come together with the students from Madonna Learning Center for a night of friends, food, and football at a CBHS football game. Madonna Learning Center is a day school for individuals with special needs. The students range from age 5 to 30 years old. Madonna’s goal is “to enable children and adults with special needs to enjoy a productive and satisfying quality of life” despite their disability. I have been able to work with the Madonna students in a number of events and it is amazing to see the bonds formed between the students at Madonna, St. Agnes, and CBHS. All of these students come together for a fun Friday night!

October 2018

Together the students attend a tailgate and enjoy a night of football. The night of this year’s event, the Brother’s played Kipp. It was amazing to see the Madonna students cheer on the football players, especially on a night with such a big win. This football and tailgating night is the hallmark event of the St. Agnes Pep Club for good reason. From my experience this event is eye-opening. Watching my buddy’s face light up every time a football player would high five him was so rewarding. It’s at these moments, that I know we are doing something good for these students and that even little actions can make a big difference. At the game, the students from Madonna get to socialize with teens their own age and make new friends with the students from CBHS and St. Agnes. The Madonna students were so fun to talk to and I enjoyed getting to know them and introducing them to my friends! These students have taught me to be grateful for the little things and cherish those moments.

Relax & Rejuvenate By: Haley Clift

Halotherapy, otherwise known as dry salt therapy, is beneficial for a wide variety of health issues. It has been known to aid in the soothing of allergies, asthma, coughs, colds, the flu, cystic fibrosis, ear infections, psoriasis, eczema, acne, sinus infections, sinusitis, snoring, sleeping problems, stress, anxiety, fatigue, COPD, emphysema, and bronchitis. After hearing about the various advantages of the salt therapy, members of the Impact staff and I decided to try it out for ourselves.

<<designed by : Mary Grace McAuley

The room itself is designed so that you are able to relax as quickly and as easily as possible. Initially, the other staff members and I were very talkative, but we soon found our conversations slowing as the salt helped us to relax. Being in the Salt Cave not only physically benefitted us, but also allowed us to be in a present state of mind. Overall, the Salt Cave is a great place to go to simply relax, especially with all of the stress that comes along with the school year. Continue to follow the 4Memphis Impact Beauty Staff as we explore more of what the Salt Cave has to offer!

WHO TO WATCH by Kara Kane

Fall is in the air, and football season is in full swing. These players have not taken a break and have been preparing for this season since June. Here are a couple of people you should be looking out for in the class of 2019.

#77 WILLIAM NORTON CBHS One of these you may already know- William Norton 6’6” is defensive end for Christian Brothers High School and has been committed to the University of Georgia since March 2018. Norton is prepared to take on any opponents this upcoming season that may try and stand in his way. Norton looks forward to his final season by building on his successes from the previous year.

v

#18 MAURICE HAMPTON MUS

Next on the endless list of senior prospects is Maurice Hampton from Memphis University School. At 6’0” and 185 pounds, this corner-back is the second ranked prospect in the state of Tennessee. Hampton has been an all-star athlete since he began his high school career and that will not change anytime soon. He plans on attending LSU to further his football career in the fall of 2019.

#1 ERIC GRAY LAUSANNE Taking it outside the SEC, Eric Gray is a 5’10” running back for the Lausanne Lynx, who are two-time defending state champions. Committed to the University of Michigan, Gray has the opportunity to shine with his outstanding statistics achieved while playing with the Lynx. Going into his final season, Gray is the nation’s third-ranked all-purpose back and the 2018 recipient of the Division II-AA Mr. Football award.

#14 KEVEON MULLINS WHITEHAVEN With eight touchdowns and 52 receptions for 1,011 yards, Keveon Mullins, Whitehaven wide receiver, is ready to improve on his accomplishments from last season. Mullins is a four--star athlete and is the state’s 12th ranked prospect for the 2019 class. Recently, he has committed to play football for the University of South Carolina. With his tremendous stats from the season before, there is lots more energy and enthusiasm to expect from this Whitehaven Tiger.

That is only a few of the numerous prospects for the 2018-2019 season. This season is going to be a wellfought battle between these athletes as they approach the state tournament and their final games of their high school career. 4memphis.com | October 2018

The Art of eyes “Y By Mary Kate Thomas

our dad does what?” is usually the response I get after telling someone about my dad’s job. My dad is an Ocularist. An Ocularist is a person that fits and fabricates custom artificial eyes. Both my father and grandfather, Rob and Bob Thomas, work together in their practice, Thomas Ocular Prosthetics here in Memphis, Tennessee. They also have satellite locations in Johnson City, Tennessee, Little Rock, Arkansas and Jackson, Mississippi. My dad is often asked what made him go into this field. “I always enjoyed going into the office with my father when I was younger and seeing the impact he had on people’s lives”, my dad said. My grandfather was introduced to the field when he was a dental-tech in the Navy. He even went into prosthetics while still serving. Out of the Navy, my grandfather worked in New York City until moving to Birmingham Alabama in 1972. While in New York, he had the opportunity to work with both Sammy Davis, Jr. and Peter Falk. Both of these men were celebrities that suffered an eye loss. Each eye is custom fit to the individual’s socket. An impression mold is made of the socket and then a wax shape is used to fit the prosthesis. After the shape is converted into acrylic, the eye

<<designed by : Mary Grace McAuley

is hand painted to match the fellow remaining eye. This is where the eye starts to look real in appearance. The red veining is made from red thread, and a series of washes with a pigmented paint is used to match the patient’s remaining eye. The process of making an eye has often been described as both medical and art: medical, because the eye is made to fit the person’s socket; art, because the eye is hand-made, custom fit and shaped, and painted to match the natural eye as close as possible, even down to the pupil. Some individuals say they feel like they are sitting for a portrait. Memphis is known to have a major medical community with UT Health and Science, Le Bonheur, and St. Jude. At St. Jude, they research and treat childhood cancers. One cancer that they treat is retinoblastoma, a childhood cancer that occurs in the retina of the eye. Many times the eye has to be removed to save the life of that child. The doctors at St. Jude refer those families to Thomas Ocular for the artificial eye and they continue to be seen there during their scheduled return visits to the hospital. “We like to see a patient every six to twelve months for proper care and maintenance of the prosthesis”, my dad tells me. With little children, as they grow and develop, the prosthesis may have to be adjusted or enlarged to help develop the socket until it’s time for a replacement, which is every five to seven years. Some patients started seeing my grandfather when they were just two or three years of age and are now in their forties with families of their own. So many of their patients live normal lives and don’t look at the prosthesis or loss of an eye as a disability. Many live normal lives with their friends and family not realizing they are missing their natural eye and wearing a prosthetic eye. Some will say that often times a family member will forget they can’t see out of that eye. “Restoring a person’s appearance and giving them their self-confidence back is an amazing feeling”, my dad says. Today, there is such an emphasis placed on social media with pictures and appearances, no one wants to feel or look different. It is amazing the impact a piece of plastic can have on a person’s life. Both my father and grandfather enjoy what they do, but it’s when their work goes unrecognized that they feel the greatest fulfillment.
