Holiday at Home, Charleston Edition

Issue 67 · Bring on the Spring · April 8, 2013

Here’s a thought: This summer, avoid the stress of travel by creating a holiday vibe at home so great that you’ll never have the need to get away from it all. Having a swimming pool and cabana will help, of course:

If we were in such a position, we would be tempted to create a carbon copy of this pool pavilion in Charleston, South Carolina, designed by Heather A. Wilson Architect with interiors by Jen Langston.
