Southern Style Now offers a fresh take on interiors from the next generation of Southern decorators, those rising design stars who’re giving their region’s conventions a bold, yet respectful new spin
By combining family heirlooms with flea market finds, antiques with Ikea, grandmother’s silver with flashing neon signs, this latest crop of Southern talent is redefining the country’s most tradition-minded territory. Southern Style Now runs the gamut of tastes and talents, from Washington, DC, to Palm Beach, from Darryl Carter to Celerie Kemble, from the mountaintop retreat of Brian Patrick Flynn to the Birmingham bachelor pad of William McLure. Illustrated with original photographs by Brittany Ambridge and exquisite watercolors by Caitlin McGauley, each chapter explores the range, variety, and possibilities of Southern Style Now. The book’s also rich with essential design wisdom supplied by such classics as Bunny Williams, Charlotte Moss, Lynn Wyatt, Richard Keith Langham, Lois Chiles, and Gerrie Bremmerman, whose talent and flair inspire the young guns of Southern design.
