Yesterday, The Devoted Classicist had the great honor to present his talk "Classicism: It's Not Greek To Me" to the Belle Meade Garden Club. Showing examples of my work, I explained what an influence classicism has in my designs for architecture and furniture. Because of the specific audience, I geared my comments more towards the ways that the houses relate to the landscape setting. Many thanks to the program's hostess, interior designer Linda Kay McCloy, for the invitation to speak and making possible such an elegant luncheon reception afterwards.
