“what is your first memory of a room?”

THAT’S THE QUESTION renowned New York decorator and Dorothy Draper disciple Carleton Varney asks of each new client before he so much as shows her a fabric swatch. He shared this last March at the Dorothy Draper School of Decorating, a weekend-long retreat he hosted at the historic Greenbrier resort 1 (and at the Draper-designed, and equally storied, Grand Hotel on Michigan’s Mackinac Island in July). Weeks after I’d come home from this most fabulous of girlfriend getaways (the wallpaper! The lectures! The spa!), I couldn’t shake Mr. Varney’s question: What is my first memory of a room? The sunroom from my childhood home in Atlanta—with its rattan lounge chairs, shell-filled lamps, and always-dappled light—where I sat on my father’s lap while he read the paper? The screened porch at…

force of nature

ask Carrie Barratt, the new president of the New York Botanical Garden, to name a favorite collection on the grounds, and she demurs. “A bit like having to pick a favorite child: unfeasible and unwise.” Barratt, however, is quick to confess her passion for sowing the seeds of conservation beyond the garden gates. “Without plants, life on Earth would be impossible,” says Barratt. “My favorite NYBG project, because it can involve all of us, is our Citizen Scientist program,” which enlists volunteers to observe and record data about plant life in their natural surroundings. Here, she shares her (mostly) off-duty indulgences.CARRIE BARRATT’S FAVORITE THINGS1.

treille chic

When 17th-century landscape architect André Le Nôtre was commissioned to design a grand garden for King Louis XIV at his beloved Versailles, he did so with nearly a blank slate. The monarch’s palace was under construction at the time and didn’t have large hedges or mature trees yet. To help match the château’s soaring scale, Le Nôtre established latticework structures. “He relied on treillage to create instant grandeur and forced perspective,” says Philippe Le Manach of Accents of France, a company that designs traditional and contemporary treillage and was commissioned to work on the restoration of the Pavillon Frais at Versailles.Use of “treille” (latticework for vines) dates back to the Greek and Roman Empires. In the 12th century, French gardeners and farmers began fashioning it to support heavy climbers. “Early…
