Southern Design Style

What’s your design style? In this series, we will explore several common design styles. Follow along and become inspired as you learn. Keep in mind that well-balanced homes often incorporate multiple, overlapping design styles.

Whether it is architecture or furnishings, a southern designed home prioritizes hospitality and it exudes warmth.  It can be casual, yet elegant.  It is inviting and at the same time has a twist on the traditional design style.  And don't forget about those deep southern porches, they are a place where people can sit and visit regularly.  There are several other hallmark characteristics of a southern home.
