As the days get longer and the nights get warmer, we feel called to open up our spaces and let in the glow of summer. From lush greenery and manicured lawns to daily family meals and iced tea on the front porch, this time of year inspires us create happiness within our own homes. The Southern Home team hopes you’ll find your own slice of summertime happiness within our vibrant July/August 2020 issue and that it may bring you even more joy as you create new memories this season.
We’re featuring bright and happy houses shared by families across the South. In Nashville, a designer dressed an elegant home in a crisp, classic palette for a busy mother of three. A transitional New England-style residence is given a modern update to match its tranquil setting in Wilmington, North Carolina. A colorful haven with island flair comes together in Jupiter, Florida for a young family living in a charming neighborhood.
