Mom and Dad are keeping cool in beautiful Quebec City, Canada this week, while we’re savoring our last week of summer at the beach. So, yes, it does get a little warm in the Carolinas in August, but we love it all the same.

Whether it’s furniture, china, or art, things that have been handed down from family seem to usually make an appearance in Southern homes. For clients who have certain pieces that are of significant meaning or importance, Brewton said, “we start there.”
