An intrinsic and creative force, design is alive in Charleston. It is historic and modern. Young and mature. Established and emerging. Entrenched and ever-evolving. A place without geographic or inspirational parallel. As much a part of life as time and tides, design is the undercurrent that animates daily life for those who call the city home, and the lure that keeps newcomers arriving. From our vantage point in the middle of it all, we explore some of the interiors, tastemakers and visionaries whose visual bounty is heightened by the proximity to talents of all disciplines.
Seven of Charleston’s most innovative and prolific interior designers open the doors to the places they call home. The result is a rare visual feast, an all-access tour into private rooms and personal spaces as eclectic and exciting as the visionary women who occupy them.
