Country Living House of the Year

Emily Henderson is a designer, TV Host, and super fun blogger. I check out her blog as often as I can because she just makes me smile. Her style is typically much more modern than mine. However, she’s such a happy soul that I totally want to be her friend. And I would definitely let her redecorate my house for me if she wanted to.

Anyways, she was picked to do the Country Living magazine’s House of the Year. It’s a remodel, and I feel like it’s exactly the way I would decorate a beach house if I had one.

Anyone notice the metal red bar stools? Um, I did. Such a happy space! Can’t wait to see the full spread when the issue comes out in September!

 

South of Market

I’ve mentioned my absolute love of the home interior shop South of Market in my “Less is More” post. Their oversized light fixtures and seating are so unique, and they have a way of using unexpected items as art. When my mom and I were in Charleston this weekend, we got the opportunity to visit their store on King Street, which is coincidentally, South of Market street.

The darling gal working at the shop allowed me to snap some shots for our blog, which I greatly appreciated!

Lately, I’ve seen them use a lot of Emerald green, the Pantone color of the year for 2012. This light fixture would be so amazing in someone’s dining room!!

There was a whole section that featured rich orange. I love how they gather oars on the wall as art.

I must admit that although I loved the colors they’re using right now, this was my favorite. I adore the distressed table, large cream chairs, and massive galvanized light fixture. I so wish I could have ordered it on the spot!

My first interaction with South of Market inspired me to turn a large lampshade into a hanging light fixture. I hope this darling store sparks creativity in you as well!
