TONY AVENT attended North Carolina State University and graduated in 1978 with a degree in Horticulture Science. He studied under the renowned horticulturalist J.C.Raulston, who instilled in him the quest for the newest and best garden plants from around the world.
Tony worked as a weekly garden columnist for Raleigh’s News and Observer newspaper from 1987 to 1998. He established
Plant Delights Nursery and Juniper Level Botanic Gardens in 1988, and by 1994 the business allowed him to resign his state job and become a full-time nurseryman.
Tony is a plant breeder who is best known for his Hosta breeding program. In addition, he travels the world on plant hunting expeditions in search of the new, rare, and unusual.

LAURA REDD studied interior design in Germany. In 1998, she began her design career with Laura Redd Interiors in Raleigh. After relocating her company to Greensboro in 2003, she worked for other design companies to get the lay of the land, quickly realizing Redd Interiors does design like no one else. What sets her business apart is Redd’s belief that not every project should be a total removal.
Redd gets to know her clients and their style and builds a beautiful room around their key pieces, how they live and what will work for their individual home.
Redd creates innovative interiors that express who the client is and how they live, using fabrics and materials that are family/pet friendly and styles that are current, fresh and fun.
