Colleen's Charleston Favorites
From a young age, I have loved and appreciated beautiful architecture and southern hospitality. I was also raised in a culinary family with the grand dame of French-Creole cuisine in my family, Antoine's Restaurant. So there is no surprise that my recent family trip to Charleston, South Carolina, was a delight in all facets for myself as well as my boys. Having spent so much time at home this last year we realized that there are so many places to get to know and love much closer to home than what we may have thought a couple of years ago.
To start, I gathered advice from trusted friends and acquaintances from Garden & Gun, Urban Electric Company, and Riloh Lighting (all based in Charleston) and cross-referenced everything in between!
