I just realized I never shared many photos of our home in Charleston. We lived in a condo that we absolutely loved. It was the perfect place to get our start as a married couple. We're now looking to buy a home in Beaufort. While we're excited for more space and a yard, we will always miss this condo and the view we had there!
Brandon and I share a very coastal, updated traditional, laid back, yet chic taste (ok, you got all that?). Our home has (had?) a lot of earth tones, mixed with fresh, more modern pieces.
I love mingling classic southern pieces with feminine touches.
Our dining table came with me from college. I revamped it by staining it dark and adding two different chairs (the wicker ones). If it's up to me, the first furniture purchase we will make once we move into our new home will be a big reclaimed table. This one is small, but it worked for us.
I loved our gallery wall because it included meaningful pieces - a couple of engagement photos, a drawing of Tillman Hall on Clemson's campus, and two Rhett Gallery pieces (a painting of the Beaufort River and one of the sandbar during The Water Festival).
One of our favorite things is this antique bar which belonged to Brandon's grandfather.
The painting on the table below (of the Heron) is a finger painting done by my talented Aunt Mary Ann. Yes, a finger painting. Amazing, right? Artistic ability runs in that side of the family and I'm amazed at their talent.
The book on the bottom, "The French Cat" is absolutely fantastic. If you're a closet cat lover like me (not very "closet" anymore), then you need it. There is a "French Dog" version too. Love. I snagged the William Shakespeare book at an estate sale for just a dollar or two.
Our master bedroom kind of got pieced together. It was never quite done. We bought the king bed and mattress when we got married, but truthfully, the bed is a little big for the room and a little big for the rest of the furniture we own. That's a project I want to tackle sooner than later. We need a bigger dresser and nightstands. I want to use distressed white furniture in our room to contrast the dark bed. Baby steps...
One of our nightstands has a framed drawing that my wedding gown designer did of my dress before it was created. That's so special to me. The painting next to it is a print of one of Claire Elsaesser's works. She's amazing.
...and our guest room. Not much going on there, but it gave a pretty soothing vibe.
This is the view I already miss!
Goodbye, little condo! You were good to us.
