Richard Keith Langham

Originally born in Brewton, Alabama, as a child Richard Keith Langham felt inspired by " beautiful houses and genteel people " in there. The person who made the biggest impression on him was Barbara Blount Lovelace, an heiress to a family fortune and owner of a magnificent household: "Southern ladies just know how to run houses. They all do beautiful flower arrangements." - he said in his interview for New York Social Diary.
