I was happy to see Vesta Fort's name in the March-April Southern Accents. (She styled an alfresco vignette for Julia Reed's story on spring dining.) To help spread a little more spring fever, I thought it would be nice to round-out the week with Gustav Schmiege's pretty picture, above, and an image of a Miranda Brooks-designed garden, below.
The great quote I share in hopes of inspiring some weekend interior rearranging -- or just optimistic dreaming -- it comes from Patrick Dunne, same issue of Southern Accents:
"...I share in some small part the headstrong human instinct to order and embellish and evoke that guides every mortal sensible enough to know that we are the species in all creation most adept at decorating."
