This past week, my mom, Mayling, and I ventured down South and explored Charleston and were blown away by it’s unique mix of history, beauty and charm. We stayed at the delightful 86 Cannon - a perfect blend of traditional Charleston with modern flair. The fully restored and chicly appointed Inn from the 1860s reminded us of JK Place in Rome and was an absolute gem - from the gorgeous decor to the most welcoming Inn keepers & adorable dogs Gus & Sully - staying there was the epitome of Southern charm and right up my alley design wise - a perfect melange of classic & modern.
We met and saw so many interesting people too - the city was truly buzzing. From local restauranteurs at Halls Chop House and the Ordinary to influencers from afar (think Blair Eadie & Julia Engel) - mom and I were quite literally welcomed with open arms. We fell in love with Charleston and can’t wait to get back. Stay tuned for a southern inspired collection by this incredible city!

One of the things I loved most about Charleston were the old, beautiful gas burning lanterns throughout the city.
Until next time…
