Hi.

Welcome!  I'm Virginia, I started this blog as an outlet for my obsession of beautiful home design, landscape design, cooking, entertaining and DIY projects.  I hope that you will be inspired to browse my collection of photos and ideas that I have found in magazines, blogs and on-line to help you design or remodel you house, beach house or outdoor living area.  I love finding new interior designers or architects that impress me enough to blog about.  I have been a foodie forever and I love to create menus and entertain.  Also, I love beautiful tablescapes, fabrics, flowers and the list goes on....

 Herlong Architects

Their Philosphy

“Great architecture, like our house, is kind and reassuring to its surroundings and its inhabitants. Unobtrusively, it just belongs there, just as it is.”  We’ve come to adopt our client, Frank Middleton's words as a guiding principle.

At Herlong & Associates our goal is to set ourselves apart through our pursuit of perfection in architecture and interior design, and the entire conduct of our business.  This house in Charleston, South Carolina is a testament to Herlong Architects philosophy, the house did not overtake the yard, but looks like it complements the setting..so Beach Pretty.
