sneak peek: harper of proud mary

by anne

first we had molly‘s place, and now it’s harper’s (the other half of proud mary) turn. her fabulous apartment is on king street, the main drag of downtown charleston,sc in a completely charming area. the 200 year old building that was formerly a bank and hotel was recently renovated, and all i know is that i’m crazy about all the great exposed brick. don’t miss the rest of the sneak peek which continues after the jump, and click here for more images of this great space. [thanks so much, harper!]anne

My favorite seat in the house.  A perfect spot for reading and having morning coffee. The batik doll is from a recent trip to Jamaica. Pillow is Proud Mary


My dining room also serves as my office.  The light in incredible and the huge window looks out onto King Street and my neighbor whom we call “Halo Boy” (he plays a lot of video games).

My husband’s office and standard Ikea bookshelf


I had the duvet and pillows made with a purple ikat from Reprodepot and a soft pink from Mood.  The dream catcher is from a recent visit to Wyoming, my husband says it gives him bad dreams!

The drawings on the stairs were done 30 years ago by my grandmother’s friend.  They are all of Pawley’s Island and Georgetown, South Carolina.

The “Bertoiaesque” chairs on the terrace were picked up on the street in Brooklyn.  We’re trying to stick to palms and succulents … much harder to kill!
