Chippendale chairs, herringbone floors, and gilt chandeliers: Step inside the secret world of Southern sorority houses, where having professional decorators is the new norm.
Down South, Greek life has a long, celebrated history and the power to unite generations. Inside the beautifully decorated walls of Southern sororities are the daughters, granddaughters, and nieces of the members who came before them. The same pride that creates family loyalty to particular Greek letters also inspires active members and alumni, alike, to keep their brick-and-mortar hubs a notch above the rest. From a Southern Kappa Kappa Gamma house where the organization’s two signature shades of blue appear everywhere, including in floral upholstery and over-sized ginger jars, to Chi Omega’s cardinal-and-straw-clad foyer, or the stacked porches that frame the white-washed brick walls of a Phi Mu mansion, the elevated decor of these homes makes them among the prettiest sorority houses in the nation. Take one look and you’ll know just what these organizations are all about— time-honored tradition.
