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. One of our favorite parts, no matter the season, is the beautiful city of Charleston and its corresponding Lowcountry–which is why we were so particularly excited to receive Historic Charleston and the Lowcountry!
Happy Friday, chic readers! Can you believe it’s the weekend already? It has been a pretty fabulous week around the blogosphere.

For Charleston designer Ginger Brewton, in life and in interiors, roots have always been important. When the Greenville, South Carolina-born designer moved to Charleston, she started a trend. The majority of her family—and their traditions—moved to the coast as well.
As it turns out, family and Southern style might have that in common. When it comes to design in the South, “there’s always some aspect of tradition,” Brewton said. 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.”
