Southern Chic Interiors

It wasn’t until I moved away for college, that I realized not everyone smiles when passing people on the street, or makes small talk with the person in the check-out line. This contrast in personality also finds its way into our interiors. You would be hard pressed to find someone relaxing on a porch swing in Manhattan, or designing chic lacquered cabinets for a Louisiana kitchen.

I love how southern culture has a hospitable, relaxed approach, but sometimes I feel that style is compromised in smaller cities, perhaps due to lack of exposure and access to current products & trends.  For this reason, I attend High Point Furniture Market twice a year to stay current on Interior Design and color trends.  Manufactures showcase their new spring and fall introductions months before they make it into retail stores, and if you want the first sneak peek at new products introduced last week, head over to my Pinterest board HERE. (And if you’re feeling really generous with your time, feel free to pin and like all 25 products on this board…there is a pretty big contest going on!)

Make a statement  on your bookshelves or coffee table with this new Shops book series. This company reconstructs old books with white parchment to create the look of old vellum, graphic designs, antique script and antique engravings.

So what exactly is Southern Chic?

  1. elegantly and stylishly fashionable.
    synonyms: stylish, elegant, sophisticated, dressy, smart

Southern Chic interiors are elegant without being pretentious….sort of a Chanel meets Kate Spade.

Southern chic interiors are stylish without being too serious.

    LOVE southern chic. It is relaxed elegance-kind of european. I eagerly await my monthly subscription to magazines like Veranda for this reason. Used to love Southern Accents magazine-what a shame that this is gone.
