Virginia native Grace Bonney, author of Design*Sponge at Home, shares how growing up in the South influenced her design style.
I think growing up southern has shaped me in a way that people only from the south can truly understand. It gave me a love and appreciation of the history that comes with the objects that are made in the South. It also gave me a love and appreciation for the things that came from my family. I really love things that are handed down, from whether it's a grandmother or a great-great-grandmother. Those pieces tell a story and give the character to a room that you really can't get with new things.
