Designer Inspiration: Our Trip To Charleston

This weekend, Katerina, Rob and I traveled to Charleston, South Carolina where we attended the ASID Carolinas Chapter conference and award ceremony.  While there, we got a chance to explore the sparkling city and get inspired. Here’s what we saw:



Katerina’s friend and mentor, Jill Muti, gave us a tour of Ashley Hall, a historic all-girls school located in the heart of Charleston’s peninsula.  There, we discovered a preserved mansion from the antebellum era, currently in use as an administrative center.  But our favorite part of the school was a former aviary, a small outbuiling completely covered in local conch shells.  Delightful!

During the day, we explored Charleston’s extensive street markets and antique stores.  Among the treasures we discovered were ancient Italian artifacts and local artisan-made goods.


As the sun set, Charleston became even more majestic.  With gourment restaurants and world-class bars, there were endless opportunities for entertainment.  Among our favorite eateries were Husk and Magnolia’s, where we indulged in local fare.

But the main purpose of our trip was to recieve an award on behalf of Design Lines for our work on the Chancellor’s Residence at NC State University.  We were honored to be chosen as winners among our talented peers from the ASID Carolinas Chapter.

We look forward to visiting this gem of the South sometime soon!
