Southern Home Tour – Part 1

Let’s take a southern home tour! Whether it is a historic home or new build, we love the architecture of the south. Our team member and resident photographer, Mary Miller, fills her Instagram (@glimpsesofthesouth) with beautiful southern homes that highlight their architectural details, gardens, and holiday style. She features Historic Marietta homes, Charleston homes, Downtown Woodstock homes include farmhouse style homes, cottage style and old southern mansions – we love them all!

Southern Home Tour …


Southern Home Tour Historic Marietta Homes

We start our southern home tour in beautiful Marietta, GA.  Like many Marietta homes the Historic James T. Anderson House goes all out for the 4th! We love the classical details on this home Рionic columns, dental molding and that gorgeous wrap around porch!

One thing that is consistent about southern homes is their beautiful front porches. We love the details on this one.  Pops of red and blue look wonderful against this white painted home in Marietta.

Christmas in Charleston is full of charm and history. In order to not detract from their architectural beauty, residents style their homes with simple decor.
