powerful memories

ONE DAY, I WAS HAVING LUNCH at my favorite Vietnamese place down the road from our offices in Birmingham when I ran into Art Meripol, a former Southern Living photographer. Art showed me a collection of pictures he had just taken of civil rights sites around the South for the Alabama Tourism Department, and I was astonished by what he had created. On one side were iconic pictures that captured the most dramatic moments of the Civil Rights Movement, and on the other were matching photographs from the current day. Art had used the same lenses as the original photographers, found the exact angle of each shot, and re-created images of the landmarks that lined up brick by brick, stone by stone. The effect was powerful, conveying the ordinariness and…

Color Theory The key to this lush arrangement? Layer the daffodil and crocus bulbs close together to create big, impressive blocks of color. Display options: A terrarium (at right) shows off the hyacinth blooms like sculptures. Forcing vases (below) reveal the hyacinths' rarely seen roots. Regardless of the container, turn the plant one-quarter every day so it will grow evenly and not lean toward the sun. BLOOMING BULBS BEAT BACK WINTER BLUES WITH FORCED FLOWERS Plant Your Bulbs IN SOIL: Use a mixture of potting soil, sand, and peat moss. Make sure the container has good drainage. Arrange bulbs close together with their tips sticking out of the soil. Make sure that the soil underneath is loose to encourage roots to grow quickly. Water the soil before placing the container to chill. Keep soil damp but…

Pebble Creek (1453) benjaminmoore.com 1. Clean and Cozy "This off-white is a perfect neutral. Thanks to gray-green undertones, instead of cool blue ones, there's a warmth to it. I use the color in an eggshell finish on the walls and semigloss on the trim." —ANNA BRAUND, Atlanta; annabraund.com 2. Easy and Serene "I haven't found a color palette that won't work with this peaceful shade. This hue goes just as well with deep reds and greens as it does with grays and peacock blues." —SANDRA ERICKSEN, Charleston, South Carolina; sandraericksen.com 3. Retreat Ready "For an enveloping effect, paint walls, ceiling, and trim this deep sapphire. Keep other elements simple: plain white bedding; natural-texture rugs; and luxe cashmere, velvet, or silk…

proud to be a rancher

Clean Slate Benjamin Moore's Timid White is Evans' go-to shade. It was a game changer in bringing this 1950s home into the 21st century. IT'S AMAZING THE DIFFERENCE a pseudo front porch can make. When Katie Bee and Seton Marshall first called on local architect Anna Evans to help them update their 1950s ranch-style home in Mountain Brook, Alabama, they hadn't met any of their neighbors—and they'd lived there for three years. It was obvious they needed to improve both their house and their good-neighbor status. So the Marshalls asked Evans for not only a "leaner, taller, and cleaner" look but also an easier connection to the outdoors. In thinking about tackling a ranch that had not been touched with much more than a paintbrush since the 1950s, Evans decided to work…
