See How Charming Southern Style Can Be In The New Book, Arriving Home

Southern hospitality is famous for a reason, and these charming homes exemplify that welcoming vibe with big porches, comfy furniture and lovingly displayed heirlooms. Arriving Home: A Gracious Southern Welcome includes 10 projects by Georgia designer and author James T. Farmer III, which illustrate how this decor style plays out not just in a columned Alabama mansion, but a farmhouse or mountain retreat, among other projects. Antiques mixed with new upholstery, collections and art displayed against pattern and textured wall coverings, punchy color, and layers of jute, sisal and wood grounding the floors are pillars of Southern decorating. Pour yourself a sweet tea, and let’s get the tour started!
