Barbi and Nolan Rushing’s beautiful antique-filled countryside estate can be found in our April issue and the outdoors are equally enchanting. Our color inspiration comes from the beautiful ‘Peggy Martin’ roses that frame their patio seating area. These roses are named after a New Orleans Garden Club member who discovered this variety and was the only one at her home that survived Hurricane Katrina. “I grew up in the Heights, but I have always loved gardening and we had a longing to move outside the city,” says Barbi. The home’s garden features more than 200 rose bushes, including many David Austin roses. ‘Old Blush’ rose bushes are abundant on the property. This is the setting the couple has dreamed of inhabiting for years. Be sure to read the full story online here or find a copy of our April issue on newsstands.
