The first crisp breeze of fall is a welcome reprieve from summer’s heat and brings fresh inspiration for our interiors and lifestyles. Whether your autumn to do list includes a hayride and pumpkin picking or walks among the leaves and hot apple cider, coming home to cozy décor and hues can be the best part of the season. The cooler weather gives us a chance to slow down and enjoy quiet moments at home, and the Southern Home team hopes this new issue—filled with grand estates and historic abodes—brings a little extra beauty to your days. Within these pages, you’ll find yourself at the captivating Merryhill house in Virginia where a designer honors the home’s rich past while giving it a functional update. Get an up-close look at a classic Neel Reid-designed abode in Atlanta and the team that worked to remodel it. Take a trip to Amelia Island and discover the Mediterranean charm of a revamped duplex. We hope you enjoy the glorious autumn weather and find new ways to add style and happiness into your home!
