Flowers of Hampton Park

February 23, 2018

It’s been a while since we visited Hampton Park, our local beautiful garden.   Only a few trips ago, it was covered in snow — hard to believe.   I walked through this park nearly every day of my pregnancy, and every evening afterwards with the baby strapped on until he got too big.  I’m always amazed by how beautiful it is, my friend says it’s the best keep secret in the city.  The park isn’t even in full bloom but still…

My Favorite Charleston Streets

February 22, 2018

There is so much to see and do in Charleston but one thing that cannot be missed is a tour of the historic district.   I don’t think that you need to sign up for any particular one, in fact I think the best thing to do is to grab a cup of coffee and to get lost among Charleston’s most beautiful streets and hidden alleyways, on foot or by bicycle.   I have a few streets that I never miss showing…

Building a French-Inspired Wardrobe

February 19, 2018

This is my favorite time of year in Charleston (or at least we’re just coming up to it!).   It’s beautiful, balmy and I’m already whipping out my summer clothes.   As I unpacked my old friends, I was pleased to see that I still love most everything that I invested in last summer.    My goal when shopping is to try to prioritize pieces that will work for more than one season, hopefully many to come.  I am increasingly aware of…

The Ultimate Valentine’s Day Table

February 12, 2018

I loved pulling this setting together so much!  It’s a combination of my favorite colors, textures and a blend of beach-y St. Barth’s vibes meets English Countryside (see pillows/tulips/garden stool).    Setting this scene was an afternoon of bliss, I love nothing more than throwing on my music (hello tropical house) and pulling from what I already have in the house.  This might be the most extreme example of that because I used the tiles which just arrived for our…

A Beginner’s Guide to Collecting

February 8, 2018

This post began as a plan to share some of my favorite things that I inherited from my grandmother and where to find them now.   I receive a lot of questions about where certain pieces of furniture, plates, glass, silver and fabric are from.  Most of them have been passed down from my mother’s collection that she inherited from my late grandmother.   I know that this isn’t a particularly useful answer in the context of wondering where something specific is…

Dreamy Routine: Charleston’s Best Kept Secret

February 6, 2018

Middleton Place is one of my FAVORITE spots to visit in town.  It’s about half an hour out of downtown and is such a reliable spot to capture something beautiful – like a sunset stroll, and a glass of wine with my husband.  The gardens are spectacularly maintained and never fail to impress whatever the season. We used to come here quite often while we were shooting for our wedding work but realized that we hadn’t visited in a while…
