With the arrival of spring comes a burst of color that Mother Nature displays for all to enjoy. What better way to celebrate this season of renewal than by bringing those vivid hues inside your home? Our annual color issue helps you do just that with inspiration from beautiful homes across the South. In Maryland, Kelley Proxmire creates a sophisticated—and vibrant—design scheme inside a 1923 Tudor (page 25). For Atlanta homeowners with an abundant art collection, Barry Dixon pays homage to the historic style of their residence while also adding a bit of glamour and an array of bold Fortuny fabrics (page 41). Palm Beach designer Jackie Armour demonstrates her mastery of color in a lively home that perfectly fits a young family’s lifestyle (page 53). And in Virginia, designer…

Southern Home (SH): How did growing up in Atlanta impact your perspective on how to decorate? Miles Redd (MR): What I love about the South is that there is an elegance and a way of doing things that’s pretty and hospitable, and it doesn’t matter whether you’re a CEO or just right out of college. It’s the attention to detail and the cherishing of tradition that continue to influence me. Decorating can be such an expensive endeavor, but if you’re clever—and I think the South is very clever—you can always find a way to make it beautiful on a relatively reasonable budget. SH: Give us a few words that best describe your decorating style. MR: Colorful, fantastical, curious. SH: Who or what instilled in you the flair for the dramatic that we see in…

fresh perspective

A connoisseur of historical styles, Steven Gambrel creates stunning spaces designed for today but deeply rooted in the past, making them testaments of timelessness and elegance. His daring palettes of bright pinks, emerald greens, deep grays, and cerulean blues, along with his tactile surfaces from shiny lacquer to rugged matte, provide an exciting textural contrast to the elegant antiques and vintage furnishings that he seamlessly mixes into his work. “My perennial quest is to reinterpret tradition with intriguing twists and irreverent juxtapositions,” says the New York-based interior designer. “It is also important to me that my design for each project draws inspiration from local references and resonates with the character of the building.” Divided into two sections, “Town” and “Country,” Gambrel’s highly anticipated second book, Perspective (Rizzoli, 2019), invites readers into…

in pursuit of passion

For Bunny Williams, every project is an affair to remember. In her newest book, Love Affairs with Houses, the New York-based interior designer and Parish-Hadley veteran presents 15 of her recent projects in a story-filled monograph that tells the tale of each unforgettable fling, including a cozy weekend retreat on Long Island, a sprawling manor house near Richmond, and an elegant Caribbean estate. “Each one is like a new romance,” says Williams. “There is the initial getting-to-know-you phase; the discovery of how people live, what their dreams are, and what inspires them. Each stage has its exciting moments, as well as its anxious ones. Throughout, there are the ups and downs of delays, budget overruns, and sometimes anxiety about the results. But when installation day comes, the trucks are emptied, and…

natural beauties

The use of tortoiseshell as a decorative finish has a history that is as richly layered as the material itself. Once obtained from the scales of the marine hawksbill turtle and made malleable when heated, tortoiseshell was believed to have first been used as a furniture veneer in ancient Rome, where wealthy citizens sometimes reclined on and dined from tortoiseshell-embellished dinner couches. Later, in the 17th century, European craftsmen pushed the art of enriching furniture and decorative objects with tortoiseshell to dazzling new heights, often using the finish in tandem with other luxury materials. French cabinetmakers, especially the esteemed André-Charles Boulle, perfected an elaborate form of marquetry called Boulle Work that combined tortoiseshell, pewter, and brass. A few decades later, Neapolitan tartarugari, or tortoiseshell workers, crafted their own decadent style…
