HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Two University of Arkansas professors will present a workshop Saturday, July 13, at Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs.
The workshop, titled "Inside-Outside: Design Connections from Interior Residential Spaces to Gardens and Landscapes," will run from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Magnolia Room. Carl Matthews, a professor and head of the Department of Interior Design in the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design, and Scott Biehle, a teaching assistant professor in the Department of Landscape Architecture in the Fay Jones School, will lead the workshop.
During the workshop, Matthews and Biehle will provide examples and frameworks for creating cohesive design from the interior of a home to the garden and landscape. They will share precedents of various indoor/outdoor designs, with examples that include a classic 1930s farmhouse, a mid-century modern masterpiece, and a contemporary Ozark mountain home. The workshop will include a presentation but will mostly be hands-on design exercises. It will celebrate holistic indoor/outdoor living through color, texture, pattern, composition, form, style and structure.
Matthews received a Bachelor of Science in interior design from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma, and a Master of Science in interior design from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. He serves on the leadership group for the Interior Design Educators Council and on the board of directors of the Council of Interior Design Accreditation.
Biehle continues to practice as a landscape architect in the Northwest Arkansas area. He received a Bachelor of Arts in French literature and political science from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, and a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin.
