Over the Mountain Journal

The design experts at Issis & Sons Furniture Gallery feel strongly that your home should be a reflection of who you are. “Your rooms should have your personality – not the decorator’s,” said Nancy Gowens, the company’s operations manager. She and Issis & Sons owner and founder Steve Issis kept that philosophy in mind as they set to work transforming the great room in this year’s Decorators’ ShowHouse. The house benefits the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, so the pair created a harmonious space that sings with style. One piece in the room pays special tribute to the Alabama Symphony. Steve Issis brought in a Steinway baby grand piano that was hand-built in 1911. Musicians will play it during the tour.

Berlin to Birmingham isn’t a move many people make, but Venezuela-born Carlos Izcaray and his wife, Yolanda Serafimov, jumped right in, and after three years, Carlos says they’re settling right in to the Edgewood community of Homewood. “It’s very different. It’s a tight community,” he says, in a soft, hypnotizing accent that sounds like words rolling of his tongue like water. “It’s gone very nicely,” he says. “We don’t feel like newbies anymore.”
