May/June 2021 Issue Preview

With spring in full swing and summer just around the corner, we find ourselves dreaming of hosting pool parties, barbecues, and family get-togethers. While these gatherings may need to be more intimate and simplified this year, we can still find ways to let in the fresh air and find joy in the season. Celebrating the everyday and making small moments special is something we can all focus on while enjoying the warmer weather. The Southern Home team hopes this vibrant May/June issue brings you some extra happiness as you flip through its pages and glimpse how others have embraced their spaces. We wish you all a wonderful, safe, and joyful season.
