"This is a kind of typical Charleston garden," says Peggy Rash, filled with classic Southern plants like crape myrtle, camellias, sweet bay magnolia, azaleas and tea olive as well as pittosporum, boxwoods and Italian cypress.
This lovely historic three-story Charleston home, the William C. Gatewood House, is one of the city's most beautiful. Owner Sarah Horton has done a meticulous, historically-thoughtful interior restoration of the home with noted New York architect G.P. Schafer. Like the interior of the home, Horton and husband Ozey's garden is framed by gorgeous old oak trees and planted with an array of classic Southern plants and a design by famed New York landscape designer Deborah Nevins.
Designer Julianne Taylor,, author of DesignHER and her husband Chris live in a charming Charleston home filled with color and artwork from their travels abroad. The family spent 10 years overseas and their three children Grant (Spain), Kate (China) and Blake (Australia) were all born abroad.
Anyone who's strolled down the streets of historic Charleston, S.C., knows that behind every gate or wall lies a picture-perfect garden. These matte black doors are no exception, marking the entrance to a charming courtyard on lower King Street.
