When it comes to the decorating, Jenny says it’s about the mix. “Rooms in Charleston have a personal, collected look that is rich with layers of history,” she says. “If you don’t include those traditional pieces, such as an antique secretary, you’re cheating all the people who lived in your home before you.” Along with antique furniture, hand-painted wallpaper is a unique Charleston tradition. “You can find beautiful wallcoverings as far back in Charleston as you can date,” Jenny says. “Today’s twist is to pick a classic pattern in a fresh color.”
