This book highlights distinct southern design elements associated with a warm climate and southern history: slipcovers, monograms, wicker-rattan-cane-bamboo furniture, antiques, painted floors, dressy curtains, portraits and collections.

There's a fun section on reinventing the old: before and after, decorating a bedroom three ways and furniture face-lifts. I never tire of seeing great examples of Grandma Agnes's chair redone attractively in a fresh fabric, some nail heads and paint which accent its great lines and improves its look. There are some stylish examples in this book.
