Gaillard Center

From January 29th through the 31st, Charleston’s newly renovated Gaillard Center was host to one of the Lowcountry’s most popular events, the Charleston Home + Design Magazine Home Show. For this Winter’s show, scores of local vendors came to showcase the latest in appliances, architecture, landscaping and much, much more! If you had a hankering to improve your homestead, this show was for you. Many in attendance, including us, left with more design inspiration and ideas than we came with.File_001 (3) (2)

So, if you weren’t able to pop in, here’s a quick recap…in pictures.
