Jim Strickland, Founder and Senior Partner at Historical Concepts and co-author of Coming Home: The Southern Vernacular House, will headline the group of well-known designers, authors and media pros for the informative panel that will explore all things related to Southern Vernacular Architecture and Southern Interior Design. The panel will be held at 1:30 p.m., Oct. 18, 2012, in the seminar room at ADAC, the preeminent design center of the Southeast for residential and contract furnishings. Following the panel at 2:30 p.m., the Holland & Company showroom at ADAC (Suite 238) will host a group book signing and “meet and greet” reception with the panelists / authors. 

The renowned panelist members will also include Phoebe Howard, co-owner of retail stores Mrs. Howard and Max & Company, and author of The Joy of Decorating: Southern Style with Mrs. Howard; Kimberly Grigg, founder of Knotting Hill Interiors, guest-host “Stylebroker” on ABC affiliate WPDE TV 15, and author of the upcoming book, Livable Luxury; Carolyn Hultman, founder of Carolyn Hultman Interior Design and featured in books such as Paula Deen’s Savannah Style and Historical Concepts’ Coming Home: The Southern Vernacular House; and very special guest panelist Lindsay Bierman, editor-in-chief at Southern Living magazine. 

Coming Home: The Southern Vernacular House, by Strickland and his firm’s partners, showcases Historical Concepts’ expertise in reinterpreting the roots of southern vernacular design. Beautifully photographed, the book offers readers a range of southern inspiration through a number of homes, buildings and communities the architecture firm has designed.

Paula Deen’s book, Savannah Style, offers tips on how to bring southern charm into all aspects of the home. Hultman collaborated with Deen to design and furnish two guest cottages on Deen’s riverside estate, which are prominently featured in the book. In The Joy of Decorating: Southern Style with Mrs. Howard, the grace and elegance of Southern interior design in many stylish spaces are featured and organized by theme. Copies of the three books will be available for purchase and can be signed or personalized by the authors at the event.

As part of Bierman’s panel participation, he will offer insight from his experience driving the editorial vision, content and direction for Southern Living, the country’s seventh-largest monthly paid magazine as well as his vast knowledge of architecture and design.

We are looking forward to this event and hope to see many of our fans and followers at ADAC, Oct. 18.
