Overview

The Southern Cosmopolitan looks at the tradition of style shaping the South’s architecture and interior design. A selection of luxurious houses from Charleston, Savannah, New Orleans, Atlanta, Natchez, Georgetown, and Alexandria celebrates the sophisticated side of southern style with a mix of modern art, antiques, and exotic textiles. Featured in tantalizing color photographs are select residences decorated by leading southern tastemakers, including Thomas Jayne, Amelia Handegan, Nancy Braithewaite, and Hal Williamson.An immaculately restored mansion in Natchez and a collector’s treasure trove in Alexandria reveal the South’s love affair with historic European and American architecture, art, and antiques. A classic re-do of a Colonial Revival home in Georgetown and a modern Atlanta condominium decorated with French antiques and contemporary art showcase the southern blend of old and new. A Greek Revival house filled with exotic textiles in Charleston and an Italianate townhouse in Savannah display the South’s fascination with foreign and exotic decorative objects. A perfect summary of southern taste for those charmed by both the grandeur and intimate details that make these homes so hospitable.
