Transcript HOUSTON VOICE/ AUGUST 16, 19 Building Gets New Lease On Life Gramercy P!ac< The Grande Dame of Gramercy Place has just gotten a face lift, and is poised to enter Houston Society with a fresh new look and a delightfully old-fashioned attitude. Bell Park Antiques & Interiors Inc. now inhabits the historic building at 4817 Montrose in the museum district with an appropriate nod to its longstanding reign as the belle of Bell Park. Constructed I 1925, the two-story building flaunts the graceful lines of its European ancestors, and remains one ofthe few examples of belle epoch architecture which once dominated Montrose Boulevard. Although it appears to have been designed for a prominent family's residence, the building was conceived by the Bell family as the centerpiece in an innovative mixed-use residential and commercial development on the East side of Montrose between Banks and Bissonnet. The interior layout echoes that of a home, with rooms that suggest living, dining, and sleeping areas. However, a more in depth inspection reveals no closets, kitchen, or bathroom facilities were ever a part of the original design. Through the years the building has housed many types of businesses. It is perhaps its latest incarnation as a showplace for lovely antique store, mm Building has New "old" look nostalgic collectibles, and limited edition porcelain dolls that is most befitting its graceful heritage. Everything old seems new again. The proprietors are Donald Hender- shot and David Wood, who spent weeks recreating an interior ambience consistent with the landmark building's innate charm. The walls are painted in soft pastel shades of rose, peach, and dove gray; the homey hues are reflected in the glossy patina of natural oak parquet flooring. "We made an effort to showcase each room as though a part of someone's home," said Hendershot. "We hate going into antique stores and not being able to see whai things look like because they are all crowded together." With tall live oaks in the front providing welcome shade from the Summer sun, the belle of Bell Park seems once more to be decked out in finery.

Houston Attorney Honored The Stale Bar Association of Texas has awarded its 1996 Scurlock Award to Houston lawyer Mitchell Katine for his work in making free legal services available to HIV/AIDS patients who otherwise would not be able to afford even simple basic legal help. Katine has worked without charge for indigent HIV/AIDS patients since the mid 1980s and serves as the volunteer legal counsel for two Houston area AIDS agencies. Much of Katine's legal assistance has been to help people with HIV/AIDS in estate planning, insurance issues, and job discrimination complaints.
