What we know about Louisa Pierce
Featured in Architectural Digest’s AD 100, Pierce, her husband Austin Scaggs and their two children left their Nashville home with no idea where they would end up. The family had tried several cities across the United States until they finally found their home in Birmingham. Pierce had grown up in The Magic City but hadn’t returned since she was 18.
According to Architectural Digest, Pierce’s parents had recently returned to Birmingham and “amazed at how much it has changed for the better”. Today, Birmingham is home to thriving creative scenes, perfect for all poetic art and design needs.
Pierce and Scaggs’ Tudor-style home sits on a bluff overlooking Birmingham city center in an area filled with 1920s properties. Pierce shared his experience finding his family’s home with Architectural Digest.
“We both immediately looked at each other like, ‘This is it. Here’s the house.'”
The feature includes photos of Pierce’s home from the 1920s with a unique mix of vintage pieces that make each room feel like the family has been there forever.
