By Elizabeth HutchisonThe Sporting SouthJanuary 30, 2015

Each February, we watch from our office windows in Charleston as the big white tents go up across the street in Marion Square. For three days (February 13-15), the annual Southeastern Wildlife Exposition is as close to an outdoorsman’s paradise as you’ll find this side of a duck blind.

“Southern style has always been relevant,” says Atlanta-based blogger Jennifer Boles, of The Peak of Chic. “It melds the best of the past with what’s new and modern today. It is rooted in history, yet updated for our modern way of living. I think that sense of nostalgia is always appealing.”

By Elizabeth HutchisonBelow the LineJanuary 23, 2015

Interior designer and 2014 Made in the South Awards judge Celerie Kemble was born and raised in Palm Beach, Florida. A principal in Kemble Interiors, the design firm founded by her mother, Mimi McMakin, who still calls the island home, Kemble splits her time between New York City and the Florida isle, retreating to the Southern beach town and its slower pace whenever she can manage. “For me, the island is about a stripping down of action,” says Kemble.
