app (I’m using Garden Plan Pro) and an iPad,
I’m plotting what goes where, when and
under what conditions. Two new books to
inspire are featured in Design Notes on page
52. Bunny Williams on Garden Style is a reissue
of her 1998 classic, enhanced and updated.
This woman does no wrong in my book. And,
Highgrove: an English Country Garden, written
by the Prince of Wales and landscape architect
Bunny Guinness, is an extraordinary look at
one of the most celebrated organic gardens in
the world — and certainly the most stunning.
It’s quite remarkable to return from minus-10degree weather and towering snow banks to
Houston, garden tillers and seed sites, all in
one weekend. This must be what it feels like
to experience a clear-cut change of seasons —
and just in time for our March issue.

Inspired by boots from
Cairo’s Old Bazaar, the
classic Desert Boot,
designed by Nathan
Clark 65 years ago,
became the statement
shoe for off-duty
British army officers.
To celebrate this iconic
boot, the 190-year-old
British shoemaker brand
Clarks has launched an
artist-initiative limitededition Desert Boot
collection, Clarks:
ReBooted. Dallas’
favorite international
curator, Filippo
Tattoni-Marcozzi
(formerly of The GossMichael Foundation)
worked with Clarks’
creative team and 14
artists and designers to
create the collection.
“Shoes are the one
thing that always fit
me, so I could not
say no to helping to
design 14 versions
of one of my favorite
classics: Clarks’ Desert
Boot.” The collection,

I
’m just back from a snowy long weekend
in Hyde Park in upstate New York
visiting dear friends Michael Dupree
and Michael Fleischer, and I can’t get
the Dionne Warwick theme song for
Valley of the Dolls out of my head. The
magical lane leading to their home looks
just like the one Barbara Parkins (Anne
Welles) walked along in Lawrenceville in her
Revillon princess-cut fur coat, stick in hand.
Gotta get off, gonna get, have to get off
from this ride. And, yes, we also watched
the movie late one night. Back in Houston,
we are putting the March issue to bed as I
write, and the balmy weather expected this
weekend has me perusing tillers to at last
begin cultivating a 20-by-40-foot garden at
my farm, now named Pond Hollow. Michael
Dupree in Hyde Park is a master gardener
with a degree from Cornell, and I know what
beauty lurks beneath his snow banks. So any
scraps of knowledge he strews, I jot down
immediately. For online seed and plants, he
recommends Van Engelen Farms and John
Scheepers flower bulbs and kitchen garden
seeds (operating since 1908). I also love
Spring Hill Nursery and White Flower Farm
online nursery sites. Armed with a planting

and a little bit naughty. The new barware collection by Houston native
Bailey McCarthy of Biscuit Home and irreverent New Orleans-based
artist Ashley Longshore is just that. “I started collecting Ashley’s work in college and
wanted to get more art and original works in the store,” McCarthy says. “So the idea
of a capsule collection really made sense for both of us.” The collaboration was born
of their long-time friendship and mutual “badass female admiration,” adds Longshore,
whose recent collabs with Anthropology and Blake Lively have catapulted her following
into a different stratosphere. With this third collaboration, she has total creative license
— in other words, anything goes. The limited-edition collection (which consists of Lucite
trays, a glass champagne bucket, rocks glasses and a catch-all dish) will be introduced to
the public at a cocktail party at Biscuit Home Thursday, March 26, 6 to 9 pm, alongside
original full-scale pieces of Longshore’s art. The collaboration, priced $75 to $300, will
be available in-store and online the next day. Biscuit Home, 1435 Westheimer Road,

urious about how
collectors live with
art? Take a peek
into six intriguing
residences, guided
by insiders Star
Massing of
Boulevard Realty (she’s known as
the Realtor to the art, architecture
and design communities, plus she’s
married to Art Guy Jack Massing) and
Catherine D. Anspon, PaperCity’s
executive editor, visual arts + features.
The home of Leigh and Reggie Smith
The duo have crafted ArtHouse.001,
a two-day, private-bus tour to exceptional and fascinating Houston collections.
On tap for the River Oaks/Montrose tour on Sunday, March 29, are the PaperCityfeatured homes of Leigh and Reggie Smith, Michael Landrum and Pepper
Paratore, and The Cherryhurst House. The Heights itinerary on Saturday,
March 28, encompasses the folk art collection of Victoria Harrison and Jay
Wehnert; the studio, home and gardens of artist Dixie Friend Gay; and the
historic Victorian castle of preservationist Bart Truxillo. Each afternoon wraps
with a toast and meet-up at a unique, surprise venue. Tickets may be purchased
for one day or the entire weekend — but book soon, because there’s limited
seating on the bus. Both tours begin at 1 pm. Single day $30, both days $55,
through yourblvd.com/arthouse; more information, Star Massing, 832.640.1628.
