Money Raised through ‘Antiques at The Gardens’ Provides Educational Opportunities for Children
It’s that time again, time for one of the most exciting events held in the Birmingham area every year, ‘Antiques at The Gardens’ at Birmingham Botanical Gardens. This annual event Oct. 5-7 is the largest annual fundraiser for Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
The money raised helps the Birmingham Botanical Gardens provide Discovery Field Trips, an educational program which is science-based, to Birmingham and Bessemer City school children.
Red Diamond Series Features New York Designer Amanda Nisbet:
New York Interior Designer and Stylist Amanda Nisbet will be the featured speaker at this year’s Red Diamond Lecture Series at ‘Antiques at The Gardens.’ Nisbet opened her design firm in New York in 1998. Since that time and as stated on her website, she has become one of New York’s most sought-after creators of refreshing, abundant elegance.
Nisbet is well known for being directly involved with creating homes with her clients that are livable, but creative and stylish. In addition to her design work, she also sells her textiles line in New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles and Australia. She has partnered with The Urban Electric Company on her lighting products and Studio Four and Kyle Bunting on her rug designs. She launched her first comprehensive furniture and lighting collection with Neirmann Weeks in 2014.
The designer’s signature bold embrace of pattern, color and texture, all held in exquisite balance, has enlivened exclusive residences in North America and Europe, and resulted in gracious, welcoming interiors that express Nisbet’s special alchemy of refinement and livability.
Nisbet’s design work has been featured in several publications including Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Coastal Living, New York Spaces, Oprah at Home, Traditional Home, Veranda, The New York Times, Town & Country, and The Washington Post. She released her book, Dazzling Design, in 2012.
In addition to a recent move to Richmond, Virginia, Nisbet expanded her design operations to Charleston, South Carolina.
“We hope you’ll join us next Friday, October 6th at the Botanical Gardens, Red Diamond is excited to bring the delightful Amanda Nisbet to Birmingham to shares her vision of comfort and beauty in design. She insists they are not mutually exclusive, and will show us how she creates comfortable, beautiful livable spaces,” said Steva Austill, Director, Brand Management, Red Diamond Coffee & Tea.
