What is Southern Home and Hospitality all about?
- It’s about decorating and entertaining with Southern style wherever you live.
- Creating a home that exudes elegance, charm, and history.
- One that’s classic yet comfortable.
- And a place that embraces and welcomes family and friends.
The warmth and zest for life that southern homes or gatherings possess aren’t confined to a geographic location. So even if you’re not from the south, you’ll still feel at home here.
Southerners are welcoming, laid back, approachable, inviting, and just plain friendly! We are not in a huge hurry, can strike up a conversation anywhere, and love a good time. Family is everything. And we are obsessed with making our friends and even strangers feel welcome, comfortable, and like family in our homes.
We feel connected to earlier generations through the furniture and heirlooms passed down to us and work them into our decor. New Southern style design is more comfortable and always mixes in modern fresh twists but maintains its feel of classic beauty, charm, and grace.
The size of your home and budget shouldn’t matter when hosting. Southern food and gatherings most of the time are not fancy, but the memories made are rich. We embrace any opportunity to go big, add special touches, and show off that southern hospitality that we are known for.
