Color fills our lives daily, and there’s no better place to express our love of it than inside our own homes. In this issue of Southern Home, we take a look at some of the region’s most beautiful houses infused with color—whether bold, subtle, or somewhere in between. In North Carolina, designer Holly Hollingsworth Phillips revs up the drama in a 1920s home with a spectrum of bright hues. A Florida retreat gets a Palm Beach-style makeover from designer Katie Scott with a dark green-and-black palette that deviates from the traditional coastal look. Atlanta designer Amy Morris creates a neutral backdrop using unexpected shades of purple that allow more daring colors to shine. And in Virginia, designer Kelly Schuler demonstrates the power of soft color in a sophisticated traditional home. Plus, Leta Austin Foster shares the mindset behind her color choices, as well as the unexpected inspiration that led to opening her boutique. So sit back and flip through the pages of this special issue—there’s no doubt you’ll find your true colors.
