Step inside the living room of this 1830s, Federal-style home, and you know instantly you’re in Charleston. “This city has such specific architectural characteristics, no matter what the exact style of each home,” says Charleston interior designer Jenny Keenan, who designed this gracious room. Rooms are defined by their small size, symmetrical design, a fireplace with a carved mantel, cornices with elaborate details, large windows, and well-worn heart-pine floors.
