It has been a beautiful couple weeks in Charleston…cool, mostly clear and sunny with the exception of only the last day or two. The last of the glory days before summer settles in (PS this Southern Living piece is both hilarious and true!). So, if you are looking for something new to do in Charleston this weekend, consider visiting the 2017 Symphony Designer Showhouse at 36 Society Street. Over a dozen designers have taken over a the beautiful historic property and each has designed or collaborated to design a room or area of the home. Some of my favorites are participating this year, like The English Room, Catherine M. Austin and Taylor Burke Home who makes my favorite chair of all time. You can walk through the whole house and see every colorful nook and cranny and well-informed volunteers are on hand to answer any questions you might have. I thought I’d share a few of my favorite spaces in the house (there are many more rooms not pictured and it is really worth the in person visit!):
Definitely pop in this year’s Charleston Designer Showhouse if you can, there’s even a little courtyard cafe where you can sit an grab lunch with your friends. It is a great way to spend an afternoon downtown and it’s up for two more weeks… Congrats to all involved!
