The Room You Never Knew You Needed: Designers Dish on Spaces for Flower Arranging
But once the cut flowers are brought indoors, a hurdle arises: where to arrange them before transporting bouquets throughout the house?Mrs. Blandings, of Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House fame, installed a small flower-arranging room with a flagstone floor because, as she told her contractor, “it might be wet with flowers and things.” Marella Agnelli, that consummate and best-dressed hostess, has larger examples at her various residences. Martha Stewart (naturally) has a few, too, including one with oak paneling and zinc-topped counters at Skylands, her 1920s estate in Maine. Society architect David Adler specified flower-arranging rooms for his top-drawer clients in prewar Lake Forest, Illinois, as did many of his fellow practitioners.A combination laundry and flower-arranging room designed by Manhattan architect Gil Schafer, featured in his book A Place to Call Home.

Family, neighbors petitioning for crosswalk where Middleburg boy struck and killed
County Road 218 — on the same side as Omega Park — extending nearly two miles from Mimosa Avenue to Blanding Boulevard, also known as Florida 21. The $744,000 project should be completed soon.
“It’s a great concept … having that installed. But it’s on the opposite side of the street from where all the houses are. There really is no way for the children or anyone else to get across the street safely to it,” May said.
A subsequent safety project calls for the department to add paved shoulders to County Road 218. The county has continued trying to get funding through some of the department’s matching programs to four-lane County Road 218 because of the amount of traffic, said Kopelousos, who served as secretary of the Florida Department of Transportation from 2007 to 2011.
One challenge, county officials said, is whether installing the crosswalk with warning lights at the park might inadvertently make the situation worse. The concern is the potential for creating a false sense of security for pedestrians, while motorists become so accustomed to it being there that they no longer pay attention to it so they don’t slow down.
The middle child in a family of six siblings, Locke relished his role as big brother to his two younger sisters and looked out for them. He would wait on them and made sure they were safe when they walked the two blocks home from the school bus stop, which included crossing a dirt road. Locke loved to ride his bike, skateboard and play football. Pretty much every afternoon, he walked across County Road 218 to Omega Park to play with his friends, his mother said.
“It’s hard for me to believe this is real,” Gaddis said. “Because he was just becoming him. He was starting to figure out the things he liked and talk about the things he wanted to do when he got bigger.”
Also hard to understand, she said, is why existing flashing warning lights at Omega Park park aren’t used daily.
Those lights are at each end of the road, but they are only turned on when there are organized events going on there, according to Gaddis, May and others in the neighborhood.
“Since it is a park and a recreational area … I don’t understand why those flashing lights can’t come on every day from 2 o’clock to dusk because you do need to slow down in that area because most days there are children there playing in the park,” Gaddis said.
That issue is likely included in the Transportation Safety Team review.
“We’re going to take this seriously with or without a petition. … We owe it to the community and we owe it to the family. It’s our goal to try to make sure our transportation system is as safe as possible,” Kopelousos said.
But for now, the makeshift memorial for Locke stands alone to remind drivers, as well as neighborhood youngsters, to be alert, be careful and be safe.
