WELCOME TO ANTIQUES AT THE GARDENS

Beverley Hoyt

Dear Friends,

Tom Underwood

It is our pleasure to welcome you to Antiques at The Gardens 2017! We are excited about all that this year’s event has to offer and greatly appreciate the work of our Chairs, Joy Grenier and Kathleen Roth, and their committee which has assembled an ever so impressive lineup of dealers, lectures and activities. The many wonderful things that we value and love about Birmingham Botanical Gardens wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our donors and members. As our largest fundraiser of the year, Antiques at The Gardens plays a critical role in our ability to fulfill our mission of educating people about plants, gardens and the environment. Birmingham Botanical Gardens represents a successful joint effort between our organization, Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens, and the City of Birmingham Park and Recreation Board. This public/private partnership is essential to keeping The Gardens free and a place where people from all walks of life can enjoy and appreciate the natural world. We are so pleased to have you as our guest for this unique event, and your generosity in supporting our work is greatly appreciated. We are thankful for Regions Bank, our presenting sponsor, for their continued support. Together, we are carrying on a wonderful tradition—one that gives back to the greater Birmingham community and ensures that this great treasure will continue to be a place of beauty, inspiration and education for generations to come. Please enjoy the show and we hope that you will take advantage of the opportunity during your visit to learn more about The Gardens. Yours very truly,

B E V ER LE Y H OY T TO M U N D ER W O O D Chair Executive Director

HONORING

DR. TOMMY AND YATES AMASON Dr. Thomas G. Amason, Jr. is a gardener. Well, Dr. Amason is a lot of things: a pediatrician, a Lt. Commander on a nuclear submarine, a founding member of the Discovery Place board (now McWane Science Center), a trustee of The Friends who also served as Board Chair from 2008 to 2010, as well as an avid gardener. He was a gardener when he was 12 years old, and he’s a gardener today in semi-retirement. He and his wife, Yates, enjoy spending mornings having coffee in their own garden and afternoons pruning, weeding and planting. Upon their return to Birmingham, Yates quickly became involved at The Gardens through her volunteer work with the Junior League of Birmingham. Her fundraising efforts with the Junior League provided the first docents for the early educational programs. The Junior League still supports these programs today, specifically our Discovery Field Trips. Not only was Yates involved with the education programs, but also she continued to raise funds for The Gardens by helping with the first Plant Sale ever held at The Gardens. “Cindy Bibb, Pamela Rediker, and I were the only three cashiers working the entire event with our pocket calculators,” Yates says with a laugh. The Amasons have owned two homes where their private gardens have been featured on Glorious Gardens tours. Yates visits The Gardens several times a week to walk the trails and admire the City of Birmingham gardeners’ work. “I love walking there because I love seeing how the plants and flowers are doing,” she says. “I saw a new variety of vinca and took that idea to our own garden. James [Horton, Director of Horticulture at Birmingham Botanical Gardens] is our guide and resource for new plant selections.”

Generous donations by the Amasons and other Birmingham–area families help Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens fulfill its mission—a mission statement Tommy worked on creating while serving on the Board of Directors: Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens promotes public knowledge and appreciation of plants, gardens and the environment and receives, raises and administers resources for these purposes. Education is at the heart of the mission statement. For nearly two decades, The Gardens has provided free, curriculum-based science education for over 140,000 Birmingham and Bessemer schoolchildren. A favorite Discovery Field Trip of Yates’ is the George Washington Carver experience where the children see how cotton and peanuts are grown and are able to touch cotton and pick a peanut from the ground. “This place is educational,” Tommy says. “It’s not just a pretty place. When we first planned out the mission statement, we wanted to establish that this is a place for education.” The Gardens’ blooms and plants may inspire the Amasons’ own garden, but their passion is for what Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens and the City of Birmingham partnership create: a space for children to experience hands-on education. “The Gardens is for everybody,” Yates says. “When I am walking at The Gardens, I see people from all over the city, county, state and world: young, old, every culture and every race. Donations to The Gardens go directly to education, which offers programming all year long.”

FOR THEIR PASSION AND GENEROSITY TO THE GARDENS, FRIENDS OF BIRMINGHAM BOTANICAL GARDENS IS PROUD TO RECOGNIZE DR. TOMMY AND YATES AMASON AS THE 2017 ANTIQUES AT THE GARDENS HONOREES. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMITMENT TO THE GARDENS! 6

TASTEBUDS REBECCA VIZARD Rebecca Vizard lives and works on Locustland Plantation in St. Joseph, Louisiana. Her specialty is repurposing damaged antique textiles as pillows. Her first work was sold by Bremermann Designs in New Orleans, and when a buyer from Neiman Marcus arrived and bought pillows for 22 of their stores in 1999, B VIZ was officially launched. Giving back to her community has become important to Vizard. She spent a lot of her youth trying to escape rural America, but upon her return, she employs only local workers and her community has become as integral to her life as her business has become integral to her community.

WORDS BY BLAKE ELLS

Vizard will be part of Tastebuds: Define Your Style presented by Flower magazine on Thursday, October 5 at 10:30 a.m. How much does the St. Joseph community mean to you? It’s turned into a full circle; at the beginning I was just trying to get out of town, but now I really love being home. I love that my business is helping the community. I just opened a shop in our little town; the only other shops are the Dollar General and Fred’s pharmacy and the grocery store. The people who work for me now have been sewing for me for years. It’s been really remarkable to be able to contribute to the area; it’s the poor Delta, a pretty impoverished area with very few opportunities for people. Now that drives me more than my desire to get out of town. I’d rather sit on my dock and read books and design pillows. How did this evolve from a small operation into this business that can hire an entire team? I was coerced into interior design, even though I was an art and communications major. But growing up in this little town, I knew how to sew and how to measure for things. When I lived in New Orleans, I’d help people with interior design for fun, and when I moved here—about three and a half hours north of New Orleans—people kept asking me to come back and help them pick out 10

sofa fabric. And that evolved into interior design. I was hired to do a job in New York, a fairly modern place for the early 90s. I needed one touch of age on a fairly contemporary sofa, and I was looking for an antique textile pillow. In New York, all of the antique textile pillows that I saw were heavily ornamented with a lot of trim. So I went down to the flea market and bought a textile and brought it back with me. I made the first one myself. It took me forever because I hadn’t been sewing regularly. And he loved it. I had enough material to make about eight more pillows. I took them to Gerrie Bremermann in New Orleans. She called back and said, “These are fabulous. They’ve already sold out. I need more.” I didn’t have time to make more. So I started hiring local people to make them. Do the designs come first or do you find the textiles and let them guide you? Textiles definitely come first. Sometimes I’ll find the textile, but it’s too big and won’t make a pillow, so I sell them. I don’t want to cut something that’s museum quality. I look for fragments and pieces that I can improve; I don’t want to destroy anything.

TASTEBUDS KINSEY MARABLE Several years ago, Kinsey Marable, an investment banker at Goldman Sachs, gave up securities trading to deal in a more exotic commodity: rare and out-of-print books. He is now, without a doubt, the premier American source for private libraries, furnishing distinctive collections for clients from New York and California to London and Paris. His services also include cataloging and organizing existing collections, providing conversation services and meticulous binding and leatherwork and purchasing entire libraries.

privatelibraries.com 202.329.8313 kinsey.marable@gmail.com

Marable will be part of Tastebuds: Define Your Style presented by Flower magazine on Thursday, October 5 at 10:30 a.m. Architecture, fine arts, gardening and biography get heavy play in a Marable-commissioned library, but there’s plenty of history, fiction, interiors, decorative arts and the classics. While Kinsey chooses every book for each collection, all of the libraries are a reflection of each client’s particular interests–topics such as astronomy, science fiction, mathematics, true crime and even alchemy. Clients include the likes of designer Donna Karan, hedge-fund manager Tom Marsico and others that run the gamut from the well-to-do to the wellinformed. For Oprah Winfrey, the ultimate bibliophile, he assembled a complete collection of first-edition Pulitzer Prize winners, and for another client, “The Best Books on Fashion and Style.” Many clients are referred by eminent decorators and architects; the late Albert Hadley, Richard Keith Langham and Thomas Pheasant are just a handful. Mark Hampton gave him the introduction for his first library. David Kleinberg of David Kleinberg Design Associates regularly introduces clients to Marable. “I love how Kinsey sort of rustles up a collection of books that can be from the most esoteric to the most common. They’re unpretentious. They are for people who actually take the books off the shelves.”

Charlotte Moss is another satisfied client. “We’re in sync,” she says. “We have a sensitivity toward certain kinds of literature. When someone really understands your reading preferences, that’s a home-run relationship.”

S E R I E S

AMANDA NISBET Amanda Nisbet has long felt a close connection to the South, despite spending her youth in the Great White North. She began her design firm in New York City in 1998, and last year, she expanded operations to Charleston, South Carolina. Her work has been featured in Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Coastal Living, New York Spaces, Oprah at Home, Traditional Home, Veranda, The New York Times, Town & Country and The Washington Post. She released her book, Dazzling Design, in 2012. WORDS BY BLAKE ELLS

Nisbet headlines this year’s Red Diamond Lecture Series. She’ll speak at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, October 6. She talks more about her style. How do you successfully mix function and style? Is it difficult? For the most part, it isn’t difficult. It’s my personal mandate in every job I do. I grew up in a really beautiful home and my mom had great taste, but a lot of the stuff was really pretty to look at and you couldn’t sit on the chairs. You couldn’t sit anywhere because everything was too precious. When I became a designer myself, it was innate that I wanted to focus on comfort and beauty not being mutually exclusive. Given that I had young children when I started designing, I didn’t want to have a “play room” so to speak and I didn’t want my living room to look like Garanimals. It’s really important to me to have comfortable, livable spaces. Why was lighting important enough to you to design your own line, and what void did it fill? With a lot of the things I’ve started to design, it’s because there is a void in the marketplace. I’ve ended up doing a lot of custom lighting for clients that led to two lines: one with Niermann Weeks and one with The Urban Electric Company. Good lighting makes the room. You need to have table lighting, standing lights, overhead lights; you need to have all three to have a really pretty 16

|

ambiance. I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for, something that was both attractive and functional. Why did you choose Charleston for expansion? I was married to a Southerner for 30 years, and I must have been a Southerner in another lifetime because I feel very at home in the South even though I’m from Montreal, Canada. I like to say I’m a Southerner—Southern Canada. My boys went to school at the University of Virginia, and we’d visited Charleston for years. It’s such a beautiful city. It’s so inspirational to be there, and obviously it’s booming. How do you distinguish a city design from a country design? There’s a little more dressiness in a city design. Not precious, but a dressiness, where you might have silk curtains instead of linens in the country. Or you might have more decorative furniture. The materials you choose are different: I use more natural wood finishes in the country, and in the city I might do more lacquered walls. It’s a different vernacular. amandanisbetdesign.com 212.860.9133 amandanisbet

RICHARD KEITH LANGHAM: SHOW AMBASSADOR What can we expect from About Decorating: The Remarkable Rooms of Richard Keith Langham? In a time where immediacy and change are too much with us, my book chronicles my career through showing classic and timeless rooms.

Richard Keith Langham was born in Brewton, Alabama, and earned a degree in interior design from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. He also studied at Parsons School of Design in New York and the Study Centre for the History of Fine and Decorative Arts in London. After an apprenticeship at Mark Hampton, Inc., he worked as an Associate Designer with Irvine and Fleming, Inc. for eight years.

What design projects have you been working on since we last saw you? Recently, I’ve worked on a Georgian townhouse in London for an energetic young family and a house on the dunes of Jupiter Island.

Keith started his own firm in 1990 and has designed residences around the country and abroad. His client list is as diverse as the rooms he puts together, from the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Mrs. William F. Buckley to Hilary Swank. With a love for clear color and real comfort, his stylish rooms are grounded in English sensibilities.

What are some of your current favorite trends? As my book hopefully will illustrate, I am not really the kind to follow trends, preferring tried-and-true design that acknowledges the past yet perhaps in a slightly modern way.

In addition to interior decorating, Langham has also designed party dĂŠcor; the black and white ball for the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut, as well as the Boys Club of New York at The Plaza Hotel. His work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Vogue, Veranda, W, House Beautiful, Hamptons Magazine, Palm Beach Cottages and Gardens and Southern Accents.

richardkeithlangham.com 212.759.1212 richard_keith_langham

He was named to the Elle Decor 2011 A List and the Ad Top 100 in 2012.

VINE GARDEN MARKET The brainchild of Bryce Vann Brock and Kelly Revel, Vine Garden Market is a shop on St. Simons Island, Georgia, that combines a retail space, landscape design firm and event planning services. It’s a one-of-a-kind concept that organically grew from their time working together at Sea Island Resort.

WORDS BY BLAKE ELLS

Brock and Revel will talk during Taste in Spades presented by Bradley at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 7. How did the work you were doing at Sea Island Resort evolve into your own business? BVB: At Sea Island, we had the landscape department and the container gardening and the wedding team and we started noticing a common thread between clients. Up until that point, all of those different businesses were under different management, but we pulled them all under one umbrella. KR: We found ourselves in client meetings where we would be discussing a landscape project and that would go into different events that they wanted to host—a dinner party or a wedding for a daughter. And that would evolve into, “Let’s go take a look at my backyard.” It was a very difficult concept to brand in the beginning. But now, our whole brand is surrounded by celebration. After a couple of years, it began to catch on and it’s been successful. Were you aware of anyone else approaching this unique concept prior to you? Have you noticed it imitated since? KR: No, and that’s been the problem from day one with all people involved with us: lawyers, accountants, business advisors. When you’re looking for real estate, you try to find a comp in your market. And there’s just not one for us. That’s a good thing, and it’s a challenging thing at the same time.

|

How did all of these components evolve together to form Vine Garden Market? BVB: We knew that we wanted landscape design to be a component, but we knew that we had to have a brick and mortar. We started with a pretty large retail space and quickly realized that our services were going to be more lucrative than the retail market. What is the line between clean contemporary and Southern charm and how do you walk it? BVB: The older Kelly and I get, the more desire we have for simplicity in our lives and in our look. And I don’t think that’s necessarily gone with the trend for Southern traditional. So it was hard to wrap the two together, but as we got more established and our client base became more trusting, they started allowing us that freedom to marry the two together. It’s actually pretty simple: using the traditional materials—like in landscaping, using the boxwood or in a garden using hydrangeas—but then pairing them with something a little less fussy, a little cleaner. Like an agave with the boxwood. KR: Even though we’re on a small island in Southeast Georgia, our client base is well-traveled. They have seen a lot of trends that don’t hit us as soon as it would in California. Bryce and I try hard to get exposed to trends and bring them here in a more subtle way. We want our designs to still have a Southern feel out of respect to where we are, but it doesn’t have to be the old-school traditional designs that have been around forever.

Lucas and Carroll’s talk, “Southern Sophistication,” is part of Taste in Spades presented by Bradley at 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 7. They will also participate in the Lunch and Panel at 11:30 a.m. Lucas spoke with us about their work. You focus your work on “perfectly proportioned rooms.” What do you mean by that? Planning perfectly proportioned rooms includes ensuring a balance of scale and drama, colors and clean lines, and finishes and textures that all complement each other. The balancing act results in a cohesive design with differing points of interest throughout the room. Every small detail, from tiny pillow fringe to the shape of the lampshade, contributes to the overall impact of the room. I hope that your eye is drawn to something different each time you walk through a room I’ve designed. Rather than noticing how great the couch is, you notice how beautiful the home is. How do you combine modern style with Southern sophistication? Pairing an heirloom antique piece from your grandmother with something new or modern that reflects the way we live today. For example: • Your grandmother’s old secretary doesn’t have to belong in the living room collecting dust as she always had it! Give it some new life and set up a sweet homework nook in your child’s room or home office. Fill it with personalized stationery and fun pens so our children don’t forget the importance of a handwritten note!

• Hang vintage china on the wall mixed in with new modern art to create a gallery wall. • Use your linens and silver, don’t just bring them out for Christmas! Entertain in a more casual way and bring your linens outside for a summer picnic! What is your favorite piece that combines both? I love my great-grandmother’s china. It’s been loved and broken over the years but the pieces that remain of the sweet floral pattern are fun to bring out in the spring and summer to use for casual outdoor dinners with family and friends. Why are you a fan of bright colors? It’s just my personality! The more color and pattern for me, the better. I know not everyone operates that way but when I am surrounded by the most beautiful colors and patterns every day at work, I thrive off them! Why do you love wallpaper? Wallpaper does something that paint could never dream of! It may be a little bit of the old soul in me but I would paper every inch of my house if I could! They give you the ability to have pattern, texture and depth in a room without any upholstery! The more layers the better and wallpaper always helps with that. Grasscloth to Gracie and everything in between!

Since launching her blog La Dolce Vita in 2007, Contreras has worked on beautiful projects in The Hamptons, Santa Barbara, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Orange County and Chicago. She is now based in Houston. WORDS BY BLAKE ELLS

Contreras’ talk, “A Modern Take on Traditional Style,” is part of Taste in Spades presented by Bradley at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 7. She will also participate in the Lunch and Panel at 11:30 a.m. What led you to the creation of La Dolce Vita Blog? I first heard about blogs around the time that I was on summer break before my last year as a teacher. In July 2007, I decided to start my blog, La Dolce Vita, as a creative outlet. Over the course of that year, I began to create a focus for the blog, centering it on my love of interior design. After a while, it took on a life of its own and I quit my teaching job. I am so grateful for the journey my blog has taken me on because it allowed me to carve out my own unique path, which eventually led me to start my interior design firm, Paloma Contreras Design, a little over four years ago.

have more personality. When every piece in a space is uniform in style or color, you end up with a page out of a catalog rather than a tailored, bespoke home reflective of the taste and story of the people who inhabit its walls. It is important to ground the room in one style and to have a unifying color palette and point of view. For instance, I like for a room to be rooted in a more classic style, but will layer in pieces to create tension with it; I might juxtapose a more modern chair silhouette with a traditional sofa style and then add interesting art and a really fabulous light fixture.

Has the growth of social media over the decade since made it easier to find your audience, or has it made it more difficult to distinguish yourself? Being an early adopter has been a huge asset. It would be so much more difficult to start a blog today and stand out among the millions of blogs that exist now. One of the things that I think has helped me to establish a voice and to grow and maintain a loyal readership is consistency. Consistency in the quality of my content and the frequency with which I share it has been a big factor in my success. I always say that consistency and authenticity are the most important tenets of social media.

Do you prefer each room in a home to have its own personality or consistency throughout the house? Every house has a narrative. Your home tells the story of who you are, your taste and the way you like to live. As such, I think it is very important for every house to have a unifying thread. One room can certainly vary from the next, but it is important to have a common thread to tie everything together. If every room in your house was a different style—for example, if your living room was super traditional and swathed in chintz, but your dining room was crisp white, stark, and very modern—the rooms would not relate to one another and would feel totally disjointed. It is important to make sure that every room makes sense through the same lens and has some unifying factor such as a recurring accent color to make each room feel like a page out of the same story.

What is your secret to combining vintage and modern pieces? Mixing styles results in rooms that feel more layered and 24

BARBARA WESTBROOK Atlanta-based interior designer Barbara Westbrook launched her own design firm in 1992 after honing her craft under the tutelage of Gandy-Peace. Her work has been featured in Garden & Gun, House Beautiful, Country Living and Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles among others. Her new book, Glorious Rooms, is available now.

WORDS BY BLAKE ELLS

Westbrook’s talk, “The Art of Gracious Living,” is part of Taste in Spades presented by Bradley at 3 p.m. on Saturday, October 7. Book signing to follow. What most influences your style? My love of antiques came from my childhood. My mom loves antiques, and I grew up shopping with her at antiques stores—not that I always loved that, but I got an education. I do like modern things, too, because of who I initially worked with here in Atlanta. I worked with Charles Gandy and Bill Peace, who had a more contemporary, modern look. Now, a lot of it comes from travel. You find inspiration on a trip to Italy. Sometimes it’s artwork or photography or something like that. And I find the architecture itself inspirational, because I feel like your interior design should be informed by the architecture of the space that you’re working on. You’ve been described as the “South’s most inviting designer.” Why do you think you earned that moniker? Our color palette usually has a very warm overtone. It’s not usually pastelly. We might use a lot of white, but it’s not usually pale, pastel colors. I think when you walk through a space and the colors are warm and inviting, there’s a welcoming feeling. And I think our spaces are—even in a more formal space, the pieces aren’t so precious that you don’t feel like you can sit down and relax. We hear a lot that our work is very warm and inviting and restful. I like dramatic spaces and I like to play with scale, but at the same time people want to use every room in the house nowadays, and I feel like it’s important to make sure that they can use every space.

There’s no formal living room that’s off limits. Texture is also very important; we don’t use a lot of slick silk or shiny fabrics. We use a lot of fabrics with texture like linen and wool and mohair and those kinds of things that I think give off more of a warm vibe than some of the more formal fabrics. What’s the most important room in the house? The kitchen is very important. The kitchen, the breakfast area, the family room—those all sort of go in sequence. Most people have those spaces open to each other. The vast majority of people—even though they do want to use every room in the house —tend to gravitate toward one or two spaces. What can we expect from your new book, Gracious Rooms? It’s a collection of ten of our projects, and I think it shows our range. There’s a modern house, a couple of lake houses, a couple of formal projects where the client likes things a little more dressy. I think it also shows continuity in our work. You can see how we use textural fabrics. I’m also very aware of light and how light flows through a space; I like to take advantage of that. Each chapter has a design principle that we apply in our work. I wanted it to be a very helpful book, too. For instance, there’s a chapter on paint colors and I show how to use different shades of paint.

Webb joins us for Southern Sunday presented by LICOA and ADAC on October 8 at 11:30 a.m. to chat alongside Jeffrey Dungan. through the world of decorative objects. Your aesthetic was formed by that level of experiencing education and cannot help but inform your stylistic tendencies.

Webb spoke to The Gardens about her unique design experience abroad and how she returned to the South.

How did you settle in Atlanta? I grew up on Lookout Mountain, TN, and spent the whole of my life going back and forth to Atlanta. After returning from London and New York, I moved to Atlanta and I lived there for several years working for an art dealer before moving back to Tennessee. I came back to Atlanta as I’ve always been a big city kind of girl. I love Atlanta and 20-plus years later consider it home. It has so many beautiful residential areas, just like Birmingham, and Atlantans care deeply about their homes, making it the perfect place to live for someone who loves interior design.

How did your experience in London influence your style? When I was in London I was attending the Sotheby’s Works of Art program, and that was unusual in that in lieu of the traditional classroom we were, for the most part, out in the field. It was a work practicum whereby we went from department to department within Sotheby’s and studied on site at places like the Victoria and Albert Museum, The Wallace Collection and various and sundry country houses seeing, touching and feeling our way 28

|

How did your beginnings in art evolve into your own full-scale design firm? I was a private art dealer so showed art from my house, and one night we had a dinner party. One of our guests worked for a large foundation that had just purchased an 1892 Second Empire house that they were transforming into their new offices. They wanted it to feel like a house rather than an office and were looking for a residential interior designer to do the job. He asked if I’d be interested, to which I replied, “But I’m not an interior designer.” He looked at me and said, “But you could be,” so hence a career was born.

His work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, Veranda, House Beautiful and Southern Accents.

WORDS BY BLAKE ELLS

McAlpine and his colleague Chris Tippett join us for Southern Sunday presented by LICOA and ADAC on October 8 at 1 p.m. to discuss design. Here, he shares more about what to expect. Do the designs you work on at your New York office look different than the designs you work on from your other offices? Are they less influenced by Southern traditions? We’re problem solvers. We turn whatever color of green we’re supposed to; our audiences change a little. We do work in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York City from that office, but also other locations like Salt Lake City. I think it would be in accord with who’s sitting before us as to what the work looks like a bit more than regionally what it looks like. People are so cosmopolitan these days; they’re well traveled and well exposed. They’re likely to want or need to go anywhere stylistically. What is your favorite design trend right now? I think the mixture of timeless traditional architecture and elements simultaneously walking hand-in-hand with modernism. Historically, that’s new–that there is a parallel universe where people love both things at once. We’re at the beginning of the integration of traditional architecture and modernism. It’s always been a little present in our work, but we feel like we have more license and need now to show it more. Rather than existing mostly in floor plan, we’re showing it aesthetically as well.

Do you find it easier to incorporate modern designs into an older structure or older designs into a brand new structure? The further apart they are, the better they blend. Something ancient really meets something very modern in a perfectly complementary way. They love each other; the extremes, the far left and the far right. It’s the middle that’s harder. The older and grimier and crustier something is, the more it’s going to love something that is clean and straight and modern. It’s the medicine, the thing that it needs and the thing that it loves. And the reverse works. A modern house loves antiquity. It loves things. It’s a museum aesthetic. If you build a sleekness and silence into the architecture, then it can be a stage or backdrop for antiquity. What can we expect from Poetry of Place, due this fall? Poetry of Place is seven years on from The Home Within Us. I’ve picked up a very intimate conversation, letting readers know what was in my mind and in my heart since we last talked. Part of what I’ve learned is the freedom to beg, borrow and steal whatever it takes from whatever culture or location or geographic styling to tell the story. Stories are increasingly complex these days. We’re crazy mixed-up people compared to how we used to be; our exposures and our appetites are different. To show that accurately, you have to pull upon a lot of things at the same time.

Vibrant blooms and foliage collected from the nooks and crannies of the Southern landscape are what define Blackwell Botanicals. Their meticulous preservation and artistic presentation are what elevate these found treasures into sophisticated, unique and highly stylized works of art.   Harvesting from the swamps of South Carolina, the gardens of Virginia’s countryside, the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, and the mountains of the Shenandoah Valley, artist and plantswoman Anne Blackwell Thompson first preserves foliage and flowers using centuriesold traditions, and then turns her bounty into beautiful, artistic compositions.   Working with a myriad of plant material—from hydrangea to seaweed to wildflowers— Anne’s passion to preserve beautiful flora and create one-of-a-kind compositions spawned Blackwell Botanicals in 2010. Her finished pieces juxtapose tradition with a modern flare, and reflect classical and contemporary styles. Her studio is appropriately located in Richmond, Virginia—a decidedly southern city steeped with tradition, but with a creative vibe all its own.   In addition to working with private collectors, Anne has partnered with designers and landscape architects on several large commercial projects and custom commissions.

WORDS BY HENRY HUGHES

Centennial Trees engages community volunteers to replant public places in Birmingham with locally sourced native trees. Begun in 2009 in partnership with The Garden Club of America, Centennial Trees is the only program of its kind at a botanical garden in the United States. Over 3,000 seedlings have been planted to restore historic parks, schools and neighborhoods, some damaged by storms, and the forested banks of Village Creek, Shades Creek and the Cahaba River. Two-year-old seedlings are grown at The Gardens with seed collected from trees known to be well over 100 years old. Remnants of Birmingham’s original forest, they are declining rapidly from lightning strikes, soil compaction and high winds. Once they are gone, they are gone forever. Aesthetically, Centennial Trees are as iconic to Birmingham’s cultural landscapes as its architecture. Good examples are the recently renovated villa at Avondale Park, framed by large native oaks and hickories, and Woodward Park in West End, its original community building surrounded by a natural stand of towering rare overcup oaks. Ecologically, Centennial Trees are adapted to Birmingham’s local soils and climate. Their growth is synchronized with the surrounding forest, supporting the insects upon which many birds depend for food. Centennial Trees very likely will stand the test of time and live well into the next century. Especially interesting, the 1,000 Centennial Trees to be planted in 2017 include: northern red oak, Quercus rubra, from Shades Mountain in Homewood; catalpa,

Catalpa speciosa, from the grounds of a business in Ensley and water hickory, Carya aquatica, from the Cahaba River in Irondale. If you or your community group would like to participate in Centennial Trees seed collection, greenhouse growing or seedling planting, please contact Henry Hughes, vice president of education, at The Gardens at hhughes@bbgardens.org.

A native of New Orleans, LA, Chad Graci received his Bachelor of Architecture degree from Louisiana State University in 2003 then continued his education at the New York School of Interior Design. Over ten years of experience with leading designers like David Easton, Michael Carbine, and the late Greg Jordan has honed his signature look. A traditional, glamorously approachable style defines Chad’s work. From living and working in Los Angeles, New York City and abroad, he has acquired a keen eye for juxtaposing high-style antiques and vintage finds alongside modern pieces, resulting in a rich, collected look. Drawing upon the influence of his architectural background, Chad understands the relationship and interplay between furniture, fabrics, accessories and a solid architectural framework as a necessary backdrop to great interior design. Graci Interiors has been named one of the New Traditionalists by Traditional Home magazine, has been featured in House Beautiful as the 2017 Next Wave Designer and has also been published in Architectural Digest, among other publications.

corbett scott Growing up in Birmingham, Corbett spent many weekends in Eutaw, Alabama – a small town in the Black Belt region. Running, biking, and sometimes climbing as a child in a small town ripe with architectural history had its impact. It sparked his interest in how buildings are informed by its inhabitants, purpose, and climate. He noticed how scale, composition and details all work cohesively to tell a story. These lessons were given formal reinforcement at Tulane University, where he earned a Masters in Architecture. After graduating in 2002, Corbett had the privilege of working with some of the most talented architects and designers in Birmingham and New Orleans. Building on these experiences, he started Corbett Scott Architect in 2015. From his office on Magazine Street in the Lower Garden District, he applies his lifelong love of connecting people to their buildings. With a respect for the relationship among materials, light, and spaces, he designs projects ranging from single-family home to restaurants. Each project strives to reflect what’s most important in his clients’ lives to make buildings that not only look good but are easily lived in.

WO R DS BY C ATH Y A DA MS

Birmingham Botanical Gardens is proud to partner with the Kingston Coalition, a consortium of concerned and invested groups and individuals led by the Kingston Neighborhood Association, the Mid-South Transdiciplinary Collaborative Center and the UAB Minority Health & Health Disparities Research Center (MHRC), in a new healthy living initiative—a community garden. Planning, planting and nurturing the garden addresses the Coalition’s identified goals of building relationships, improving communication, and increasing activities for children. This garden will help unify the community, creating an inviting and visible landscape, developing a love for gardening, educating and promoting healthy living and promoting civic, spiritual and environmental responsibility. Through grants from the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham and Independent Presbyterian Church Foundation and a generous donation of vegetables, herbs and flowers from Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Kingston Coalition stakeholders have installed garden fencing, efficient drip irrigation and 16 raised beds and row gardens on 44th Street North adjacent to Hopewell AME Church. Future plans include herb and flower beds and a butterfly garden for neighborhood children. Kingston Neighborhood Association president Lillie Cole and vice president Lovie Crawford are Community Garden Chairs. Groups working with the Coalition to implement and maintain the garden include UAB MHRC, Independent Presbyterian Church, the Birmingham Housing Authority, the Kingston Neighborhood Association as well as Friends 50

Along with a team from UAB, MHRC Program Coordinator Tiffany Osborne works closely with residents of the Kingston community in planning and budgeting garden programs. For Kingston Neighborhood president Lillie Cole the Community Garden represents the fulfillment of a long-held dream. “We recognize the problems of obesity in children and senior citizens not eating well, and we plan to have classes to teach residents how to cook with fresh vegetables and herbs as a nutritious and delicious alternative to fast food,” explains Cole. “The garden is moving forward to provide a great learning and teaching opportunity for our neighborhood. We hope to become a model for similar gardens throughout the city.”

mark thompson Mark grew up in rural Alabama with an interest in art and interiors from a young age. He tended his parents’ garden, and neighbors often would ask his mother which landscaping company kept the yard. Imagine their surprise when she answered, “It’s my 12-year-old son.” At 17, he served as a night manager of a local gift shop, and this is where his passion for retail truly began. Mark studied interior design at the Art Institute of Atlanta, and after college, he worked for a leading wall decor manufacturer as a product development and showroom designer, leading to a better understanding of importing and manufacturing. In 2009, Mark moved to Birmingham to work for Anthropologie and then went on to manage a local garden shop where he truly fell in love with the Birmingham community. In the fall of 2017, Mark branched out with Jay Draper to create SHOPPE, combining his passions of retail, gardening and design.

jay draper Jay’s recollection of his grandmother’s greenhouse during his childhood is still a vivid memory. The feel of humidity on his skin, the smell of moss growing on the brick floor, and the sight of green leaves stretching toward glass are elements that left a lasting impression in his then young mind. As he grew up, his mother carried on the tradition of keeping and caring for houseplants. At the age of 14, Jay got his first job, working at a local garden shop where he was able to cultivate his own relationship with plants and gardening. He studied history at Ole Miss and the University of Alabama, and has worked in garden shops across the East Coast over the last 16 years. Recently, Jay has focused his gardening passion into the art of the potted plant, with many of his designs photographed for national publications. He loves to find the right plant for the right spot to live a long, full, and healthy life. In the fall of 2017, Jay partnered with designer Mark Thompson to open SHOPPE, a retail home and garden store in the Forest Park neighborhood of Birmingham, Alabama.

katherinebramlett.com 205.767.6436 @katherinebramlett

Katherine Bramlett is a young designer based in Birmingham. While in school at Vanderbilt, she focused on the creative disciplines – falling in love with her History of Art courses and her time in the art studio. During these years, she had the opportunity to intern with several talented interior designers. These experiences solidified her desire to pursue a career in interior design as a melding of her creative mind and entrepreneurial spirit. Following school, she moved to Birmingham to work for the wonderful Marjorie Johnston and Company. In 2016, Katherine founded her own firm, Katherine Bramlett Design, based here in Birmingham. KBD is a full-service residential design firm, with ongoing projects in Birmingham as well as Tennessee, North Carolina, and on the coast. Katherine believes that “simplicity is beautiful” and applies that idea to the design process. For her, design is about creating & enhancing the spaces where her clients live everyday life. She thinks of home as the gathering spot for friends and family to live real life – around the dining table, in front of the fire, on the back porch. With that in mind, she aims to create spaces that are gracious and inviting. Because she is drawn to the simple and fresh, she looks to interpret her clients’ personality and lifestyle through the lens of ‘simple beauty’ – clean lines, timeless pieces, harmonious proportions. She hopes that her spaces serve only to further enhance the beauty of everyday life. Katherine has appeared in Birmingham Home & Garden, Domino, Style Blueprint, Glitter Guide, and several other national blogs. 2 017 A N T I Q U E S AT T H E G A R D ENS

A Seed Planted in Birmingham Flourishes Far Beyond Medical Properties Trust began in 2003 as the seed of a new idea – that the underlying value of a hospital’s real estate could provide much needed capital for its growth.

Fourteen years later, that seed is flourishing as leading hospital operators discover the power of long-term sale/leaseback transactions to provide capital for facility upgrades and acquisitions. And MPT has grown assets to nearly $9 billion while building an international portfolio of 269 hospital properties. MPT has also grown its investment in the community and is proud to support Antiques in the Garden again, as we salute all the volunteers who work to nurture the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

Her influence played a defining role in his decision to study landscape architecture, and he knew when he started his own practice, he would use his mother’s maiden name (and his middle name) and call it Golightly Landscape Architecture. John graduated from Clemson University in 1994 with a degree in landscape architecture. After college, he spent time in Atlanta and Connecticut with talented landscape architecture firms specializing in high-end residential design. During this time, John honed his skills on mostly formal gardens with an acute attention to detail.

In 2000, John jumped at the opportunity to work with the nationally renowned firm Oehme van Sweden & Associates, Inc. in Washington, D.C. There, he gained incredible experience working alongside the acclaimed German plantsman, Wolfgang Oehme. John and his family moved home to his native Birmingham in 2004 and started Golightly Landscape Architecture with a focus on residential master planning and garden design. John has designed gardens from the eastern shore of Maryland to Pensacola Beach, Florida. From tidy courtyard gardens and exterior renovations to master plans for new construction and estates, Golightly Landscape Architecture provides comprehensive, site-specific designs that are beautiful, sustainable, and practical. When not working, John and his wife, Brantley Fry, also a Birmingham native, often can be found on a sports field watching their daughter, Carlisle, play soccer and son, Walker, play lacrosse.

Birmingham Botanical Gardens partners with KultureCity I have this friend. Let’s call her Em. Em has a child with severe autism. She pours super-hero amounts of energy into working with her child for small but powerful achievements, like saying a new word or making it through a shopping trip. Things like that seem minor to many of us, but to Em and so many other families like hers, they are significant milestones requiring patience and persistence. Em also devotes her time to advocating for her son and other children living with autism. That advocacy is how I came to learn of an organization called KultureCity and how it helps organizations like Birmingham Botanical Gardens be more accommodating to families like Em’s.

What is KultureCity?

KultureCity, one of USA Today’s 2016 Top Nonprofits in the U.S., is a Birmingham-based, impact-driven nonprofit focused on helping autistic individuals realize their potential by providing tangible assistance and equipping businesses and the community to relate to children with autism and their families. “The KultureCity Sensory Friendly Initiative was born out of the desire to help businesses and community organizations better understand the needs of individuals with autism and other sensory needs. The goal is to allow these individuals the ability to see and experience all the things a community has to offer, without being overwhelmed by everything going on around them.” kulturecity.org

What are KultureCity and The Gardens doing together?

In 2016, KultureCity has provided The Gardens with an evidence-based sensory training program to help increase the knowledge base of our staff and volunteers. The training included an initial assessment of staff knowledge relating to autistic individuals, in-person training for staff by a licensed occupational therapist, access to training videos to be used with new or seasonal staff and volunteers and modification recommendations. KultureCity will also provide yearly followup for training purposes. Following the staff training, KultureCity performed a site assessment for The Gardens. Their assessment included a facilities walk-through, programs evaluation and further modification recommendations related to these topics. The site assessment included recommendations for placements of co-branded signage that will convey our partnership to visitors to The Gardens upon their arrival at main entrances and designate “Quiet Space” and “Headphone Zone” areas throughout. The Gardens will also receive recognition on the KultureCity website (kulturecity.org) as a sensory-friendly partner organization. WORDS BY BROOKE McMINN
