Southern Home (SH): We confess to being a little envious that you live in the Bahamas, have an apartment and shop in Palm Beach, and another boutique in Charleston. What draws you to live and decorate in coastal and resort communities? Amanda Lindroth (AL): I grew up south of Palm Beach in Boca Raton, and it just never got out of my skin. Although I went to college in Boston and lived in London, Paris, and New York in my twenties—and those cities still have enormous appeal—I think I always knew I’d find my way back to the water and a tropical environment. SH: Who has been your greatest stylistic influence? AL: One hundred percent, my mother. She was a really stylish woman of the ’60s and ’70s—she was young in Florida with…

culinary masterpieces

Gently burnished by time, antique copper cookware is prized for its mellowed patina that alludes to a rich past. But to fully appreciate its heritage, one must also delve into the history of modern gastronomy, for the two are closely related. For centuries, cooking was mostly done over an open flame and typically involved a cauldron or roasting spit. But two developments modernized cookery and subsequently led to the necessity of copper cookware: the birth of haute cuisine in 17th-century France and the invention of the cooking range in the 18th century. Naturally, it was the French who paved the way in both cases. A refinement of cooking that was groundbreaking, haute cuisine emphasized technique, such as braising and sautéing. Ingredients like herbs and butter resulted in the development of a…

relaxed revival

For Yancey Seibert Shearouse, preservation has been a lifelong passion. As a native of Natchez, Mississippi, home to the nation’s most distinguished pre-Civil War residences, accessibility to such historically significant structures instilled a reverence for classic architecture. “I didn’t have a normal upbringing,” says Shearouse. “In the third grade, I was talking about furniture. I completed my first real projects, a 1915 Colonial Revival and an 1870s Federal Greek Revival, as a college student.” Over the years, the designer’s inherited appreciation has helped hone the hallmark of her residential work—highlighting a home’s beauty while creating livable spaces. When her Augusta clients, a family with three young children, found their perfect abode in a 1927 Colonial Revival in the Federal style, Shearouse was enlisted to oversee a renovation of the interiors as…
