From the bricks of Montevallo to the cobblestones of Savannah, GA, home is never far away.

University of Montevallo alumna and Hoover native Linn Gresham has begun a venture with design partner, Leah Bailey, on a potential new HGTV show titled “Vintage Savannah”.  The design duo works together to “restore Savannah’s antiquated homes into contemporary treasures.”

In a press release from the University of Montevallo, it was said that Gresham became interested in design because of the campus – which we totally understand as Thrillist recently named it as one of “The Most Beautiful Public College Campuses in America”. Gresham received a BS in interior design and furthered her educated at the Savannah College of Art & Design, earning an MFA.

Fun facts: Gresham was a member of Chi Omega and the Female Gold Side Leader in 2001 – it was a GV (Gold Victory – for those unfamiliar with College Night)!

Fast-forward to 2015, Gresham and Bailey found their way into a surprise TV audition via Skype for an HGTV show. Production loved it, and subsequently filmed two pilots for “Vintage Savannah”.

The labor of love for this kitchen is one that we will remember for a lifetime! The first time we laid eyes on it, the demo, the planning, and installing the incredible details. All for a family that is beyond grateful. This is why Linn Gresham and I do what we do. It’s our passion, it’s our life, and it’s in our bones! Hope we can share more life changing projects with you and HGTV! Stay tuned for another airdate! -Leah // Retrieved from official “Vintage Savannah” Facebook
