Coffee and a New Magazine....

Just another morning with a cup of jo and a magazine....
I just want to raise my cup of coffee to a new regional magazine that I found yesterday at Barnes and Noble.  Charleston Home.  The same publisher publishes Charleston Magazine and Charleston Weddings.  Unlike the other magazines from this publisher it is only published 2 times a year this issue being the Fall/Winter issue but the Spring/Summer issue has just hit newstands (evidently not here in Columbia yet:) !!!! The photography and styling is great, along with the overall design of the magazine.  It is rich on content and low on advertising.

to the Modest Kitchen Redesign of Kitchen Designer Dylan Gilliam,



I am dying over the backsplash here....gorgeous!


not to mention the Feature of Louisa Moore and her amazing Mount Pleasant Property,

Those Beams were salvaged from Camden SC...and the floors are from Orangeburg. 
I just love how she infused a bit of South Carolina into the whole home!


There is a bit of something for everyone.
 Coupled with Tips and Tricks on decorating, gardening, and cooking, to features on local artisans....

I never get bored of this look!

always looking for gardening advice

it really hits the mark. Let's just say,  I am a fan,  and will be running out to get my copy of the Spring/Summer issue...or I can enjoy it online.



For those of you up north that need a little Lowcountry Fix, I highly recommend it!
It leaves me wishing that it wasn't only twice a year...and that they featured more of what the Midlands of South Carolina has to offer.

 Bravo to Editor Ellen McGauley on a job well done.

Happy Reading.
