Stephan SardoneBlog, ShowcaseLeave a Comment

The other day I heard something interesting about humankind: that we’re all just little historians. Meaning, we collect the past, even if it isn’t our past. We gather. We reminisce. We can’t help it. We must keep our great grandmother’s antique broach and fully document every special occasion for later recounting. To our cores, we place emphasis on certain items … Read More

Summer is upon us, and we’re all getting into vacation mode. Everyone I know is buying tickets, booking hotel rooms and taking time off. Me? I’m reminiscing about vacations past, making checklists of where we’ve been and a new list of where we’d like to go.

As a southerner, I’ve found it intriguing over the years to see “southern design” at the top of trends lists for interior decorating — sometimes even exterior.
