Coming Home: The Southern Vernacular House Book Signing

Saturday, November 10, 2012 - 1:00pm
James Lowell “Jim” Strickland, founder and president of Historical Concepts, an Atlanta and Peachtree City, Ga., architecture firm famous for southern vernacular architecture with historic precedent, will sign purchased copies of the firm’s new book entitled, Coming Home: The Southern Vernacular House at Acorns Boutique at Old Edwards Inn & Spa, Highlands, N.C. The event will take place Nov. 10, 2012, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST, and will be during the popular Highlands Culinary Weekend, a four-day event that involves an array of activities, shopping, cuisine, and cooking demonstrations. Acorns Boutique at Old Edwards Inn & Spa features antiques, new furniture, home décor, rugs, books, apparel, and art hand selected from around the world.
 
During the book signing event, Strickland will answer attendee questions about how to continue North Carolina and Southern architectural traditions, while simultaneously designing and building homes that accommodate the needs of 21st century homeowners. He will also answer questions about how he and the partners of his firm collaborated to co-author what many are calling one of the year’s most beautiful design books. Attendance will be free for the public, and books may be purchased on site and signed upon request.
 
Coming Home: The Southern Vernacular House, was published by Rizzoli in March 2012. Each home or building pictured and described in the book showcases meticulously designed exteriors and interiors with unified elements, resulting in a display of homes that are aesthetically pleasing from all vantage points and floor plans that reflect the various homeowners’ lifestyles. Each chapter provides a look at homes or communities that pay homage to America’s architectural heritage or the South’s thematic style.
