Charleston is beautiful and their style, when not overly antiqued, is quite chic and neutral. Very relaxing.
Everyone here keeps telling us the best places to get "lowcountry" food - so far we figure this consists of shrimp and grits (neither of us even remotely likes grits so we haven't indulged), she-crab soup (really yummy when made right), and white hushpuppies (ultra tasty!). (I don't really count things like fried chicken and mashed potatoes 'cause we eat those at home all the time.)
So, back to design. I haven't been to many art galleries yet - saving them for tomorrow! But I did pick up a copy of Charleston Home magazine, and I really like it! So enjoy this home of a local artist from their most recent issue.

I have finally embraced white, and, in my next house, I'm definitely painting all the walls white! This is such a peaceful space!
