Charleston Recap

Happy Monday, and I apologize for the radio silence last week!  Our firm was swamped setting up our atelier at Fritz Porter last week in Charleston, and by the time we got home I had to play catch up with work in New York and life in general.  If you follow my instagram, you know how much I was loving the sunshine and curb appeal in the holy city, and I wanted to share a little recap of photos here on the blog!

A gorgeous home right in downtown Charleston:

Setting up our atelier with custom pieces from Amanda Nisbet, including our Positano wallpaper in lime green and our Palm Chandelier from Niermann Weeks:

The floral window boxes and pretty shutters abound around downtown Charleston.  I couldn't get enough of them:

We celebrated Amanda's birthday with dinner at The Penisula Grill.  They surprised her with a few amazing desserts:

The second night, we had dinner at the infamous 0 George Hotel.  Talk about charm.  If you go to Charleston, you must must must eat here and have the truffled deviled eggs.

More curb appeal...

I love all the palmettos growing around the city:

A glimpse of our atelier after we finished getting it all set up!  You can shop Amanda's favorite products, artwork from the Quogue Gallery, and vintage furniture pieces through the month of May at Fritz Porter.

Although I have only been to Charleston a handful of times, I have started a list of my "must dos" and "must sees" for anyone who might travel that direction.  For a more complete guide, check out Chassity's list or Natalie's list!

Sam's Charleston Travel Guide


Nice Restaurants
167 Raw - best lobster roll ever- very small bar/restaurant but also has a cute outdoor area.  Also, the bartenders were very nice looking when I was there!  Priorities.  :)
0 George-  If you don't stay here you still must have a meal here. DIVINE.  They change the menu regularly but the deviled eggs appetizer is a must.
The Peninsula Grill- Fancier, white tablecloths and men must wear jackets, but so beautiful inside and outstanding food.

More Chill Restaurants
The Daily- very casual sandwiches, coffee, etc- best avocado toast I've ever tasted!  
Mercantile and Mash- Cute gourmet grocery/coffee bar/restaurant at the Cigar Factory with delicious breakfast sandwiches, coffee, wine, fresh bread + cheese, etc.
Pearlz- Get the oyster shooter! 
Tattooed Moose- Really casual bar with outdoor seating, great vibe 

Best Shopping
Lola & Bess- adorable antique store with great finds
Fritz Porter- amazing furniture and decor with several individual booths. 
Candy Shop Vintage- Cutest vintage jewelry shop, just off of king street. 
Walk down King Street for other cute, local shops!

Go walk around and take pics- seriously, the city could not be cuter and wandering around the streets downtown is one of my favorite things to do.  Be sure to see Rainbow Row

I hope you guys have a great week!


  1. These pictures are great! Especially the yellow chairs!

  2. I loved FIG, and Peninsula Grill's coconut cake was delicious. We wanted to try 167 Raw but didn't get a chance. Now that I know about the hot bartenders it's top of my list for next time :)


What say you? I'm all ears.
