For many, this time of year in the South can be summed up with one word—celebrations. Whether it’s a graduation party, a backyard barbecue, or a bridal shower, we always look forward to gathering together. Many times, these memorable events are held in the most special of places—our homes. So it’s only natural that as we open our doors to friends and loved ones, we want our homes to not only be a welcoming haven but also a reflection of us. It’s all about finding your own individual style and creating the home that best suits your family and your stage of life. In the May/June issue of Southern Home, we help you on that journey by featuring some of the most stunning and inspiration-filled homes from across the region. In Virginia, architect Richard Williams and interior designer Jim Hawes team up to bring unity to a 1925 stone manor house and its many outlying structures while still maintaining its historic character. When a retired executive and his wife move back to Birmingham and repurchase their old house, they call upon designer Sandra Lynn to create the leisurely feel of a retreat in keeping with their new, relaxed phase of life. And Washington, D.C., designer Mary Douglas Drysdale uses a modern, minimalistic approach to refresh and expand the interiors of a traditional, colonial-style house. In addition, Meg Braff extends an invitation to tour her most cherished design projects in her new book. And Darryl Carter shares his secrets to creating bold statements through neutral-themed interiors. Plus, as a tribute to Mother’s Day, we feature four of our favorite Southern design dynasties who have made their professions into a family affair. So join us in raising a glass to kick off this season of celebrations as you find inspiration for your own Southern Home.
