Coastal Chic

Charleston. We have it all. We are southern. We have charm. We are historic. The food, the shopping, the water, the sights. We are America’s #1 preferred wedding destination. (Not a shocker.)

Everyone wants to come here, and we welcome it. Tourism is booming. People are drawn to us in good ole’ Chucktown.

(My littles and me at IOP)


We live and/or vacay here because we are drawn to the mystery of the sea, ocean life, crabbing, boating, fishing, surfing, swimming, jumping waves, wind in our hair, and palmetto trees in the breeze.


No wonder folks are bringing the airy coastal Charleston outdoor feel indoors into their living quarters. Serenity, calming waves, sandy beaches, seaglass colors. Calgon take me away! (Wait, am I dating myself???)


Here’s a Coastal Chic Shaw Flooring round up to make you feel like you have your toes in the water and (ehhh) hands in the sand: (whether you live here or not.)
