Fall Break- Charleston
I love visiting Charleston, SC and seeing the historic homes on the Battery. I love the old southern homes from the 1700's with the wrought iron and wood details. These homes strongly influence my design style today. I'm still a southern girl at heart.
This visit I was able to do some house tours which I have never done. I especially enjoyed a tour of the Calhoun Mansion which I do not have any pictures of, because they do not allow photography within the home as it is still a private residence. The Calhoun Mansion is ecclectically decorated almost like a museum, with decor from all around the world including some pretty creepy taxidermy on the 3rd floor.
