We are so excited because, at our house anyway, summer is here! Everything feels fresh and new and alive. And we don’t have to wake up early for school! That’s perhaps the best part of all.

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.”
