Join Savannah magazine—the city's own child of the Nineties—the Telfair Museums and a young Winona Ryder/Ethan Hawke ensemble for an irreverent night of nirvana and arrested development. Tour the Jepson Center’s latest exhibition, “Come As You Are: Art of the 1990s,” jam out to a retro mix by DJ Phong Dang, sample some tasty “reality” bites by the Jepson Café, and be the first to vote on concept magazine covers by local artists. Then stay to watch a certain cult classic film as we celebrate the decade that gave us Savannah magazine.

[caption id="attachment_13992" align="aligncenter" width="683"]From the Portfolio of Anne Hagerty Interiors by Richard Leo Johnson From the portfolio of Anne Hagerty Interiors by Richard Leo Johnson[/caption] The Telfair Academy Guild invites local designers to think big in small spaces for its newest aesthetic affair.  Judy Bean takes us on a tour. On October 23, five distinguished local designers and a celebrity husband-and-wife team will transform the Jepson Center’s soaring lobby into six high-concept “Rooms with a View.”  The Telfair Academy Guild’s re-imagined annual décor event expands this year beyond traditional tablescapes to vivid, full-room vignettes, encompassing walls, furniture, flooring, visual art and, of course, six varying views on Southern style. “We invited each of these gifted designers to do something they might never get to do for a client: to interpret Southern style in their own, unique aesthetic,” muses Gail Lawrence, the event’s design co-chair.  “We asked only that they refer to Phoebe Howard’s book, The Joy of Decorating: Southern Style (Stewart, Tabori and Chang 2012), as a starting point.  After that, they had free rein.” The designers—who include “Mrs. Howard” (as the author is widely known) and her husband, Jim—have been reluctant to release too many details before their rooms are unveiled.  But we got a whiff of their inspirations and learned that these artists took big aesthetic strides in their vignettes, even though their literal spaces measure merely 8 feet by 8 feet.
