Theory Design’s Vice President of Design Ruta Menaghlazi, Lead Designer Adriene Ged, and interior designer Cynde Thompson have finalized the interior designs for Seagate Development Group’s two new furnished models at Esplanade Lake Club. Esplanade Lake Club is a 778-acre resort lifestyle community being developed by Taylor Morrison. The gated community is positioned on a 352-acre lake and is attracting significant homebuyer traffic. The new models feature Seagate’s Santorini and Genova floor plans. Both models will debut in April 2021. The designers also created the interior for Seagate’s completed Monaco model that is now open for viewing and purchase at Esplanade Lake Club from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
For more than a century, Frances Hodgson Burnett’s “The Secret Garden,” first published in 1911, has endured. It remains one of the great classics of children’s literature, a book that deftly combines the dreams and nightmares of childhood. Its balance of dark and light, death and rebirth is still powerfully moving in its rare harmony.
Mark Mundan’s adaptation, which STX Films will release on-demand Friday, struggles to burrow into the interiors of its characters. It’s sluggish at times and too withdrawn for such a vibrant tale. But it stays nevertheless in tune with the spirit of Burnett’s book, and by the time it reaches its late crescendo, this “Secret Garden” blooms nevertheless.
“The Secret Garden” has been adapted many times before but only once as a major movie, in 1993. Agnieszka Holland’s version, a superbly crafted family film, remains a classic in its own right. Produced by Francis Ford Coppola,
