Graciousness is a quality that has a special resonance in the South. Whether in charming interiors, architectural style or hospitable entertaining, the distinct aesthetics and traditions of this region have affected the entire country for more than two centuries. SOUTHERN STYLE presents a relaxed approach to living that is as warm as the climate and suggests ways to bring the South's flair for comfort and elegance into your home. In this lavishly illustrated book, the editors of Southern Accents showcase the living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens and bedrooms that have appeared in the magazine, revealing some of the best examples of design today. A chapter on accessories shows how to incorporate individual touches that say 'welcome' in a way that only the South can. In addition to interiors, the editors consider the architecture of the South, particularly how its stately style has evolved for modern living. The lush Southern landscape provides ideas for 'bringing the outdoors in' as well as creating elegant gardens in the region's diverse climates.
Southern Accents is a sophisticated magazine focusing on Southern interior design, lifestyle, and gardens.
