70’s Revival- Sorry We’re Not Sorry.

 From egg chairs to waterbeds, ’70s design has long been derided as tacky. Those who lived through hoped and prayed that they could leave those recollections of bellbottoms and feathered hair in the past.  But as always, trends come full circle, and the 70’s are now a source of great inspiration, in fashion and design. At […]


A Balanced Life: Interview with Susan Colwell

Bursting with verdant plants, with neutral landscape paintings hung throughout, and the meditative sound of a trickling waterfall in the background, Susan Colwell’s home exudes feelings of natural stillness and quietude- like her paintings. Upon greeting me at her door, I was not received by the pensive person I thought I was about to meet. Susan is energetic and full […]

Quiet, grounded and contemplative, Tom has found tranquility and comfort in a woodsy, serene […]

“You Better Belize it”

On a recent trip to Belize, Gallery Director Sarah Miller had the chance to see Mayan ruins- still standing strong despite 3,000 years of wear and tear. The architectural feat alone is something to write home about- but the preserved art and inscriptions are equally as interesting. These angular, geometric shapes with ancient roots have become […]

Snake Charmers

Snakes are symbols of creative life force. Appropriately, the skin of these animals is a material that represents luxury across worlds of fashion and design. From python to sea snake, we love how these skins often act as neutrals, and add subtle style to any room. In both large and small doses, here are some ways to revive your reptilian decor […]

Something’s Fishy…

Here in the Low-country, fishing is a favorite hobby among many. We love the sport for its calming powers and the satisfaction it brings. The repetitive motions and being encompassed in nature produce the greatest serenity. We think it is super important to engage in something like fishing as a pastime to recharge- away from the […]
