Georgia is about as down-home southern as it gets, and we love it for that! Friendly neighbors, patio weather all year ‘round, “y’all” and “bless your heart” are heard daily, and the food is finger-licking good. This is especially true if you’re living in one of our beautiful McDonough or Union City homes— you’ll know the true strength of that southern hospitality. But how do we get that sweet southern charm in our homes? Being from the south ourselves, we’ve compiled some great tips to get you started on creating that perfect Georgia home!
Front Porch Living
When you think of the south, you might think of sitting in a rocking chair on the porch drinking a cold glass of sweet tea. Many of our homes offer front porch designs that you can choose from so you can decorate that sweet outdoor porch however you’d like!
We all know the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where a family comes together to cook and eat together. You can add a bit of southern charm to your kitchen by splurging on the details and adding rustic drawer handles, floral curtains, and plants to give life to your space!
A Hearty Living Room
The living room is where we entertain guests, relax after a hard day of work, and spend time with family. Add a little something extra to your interior design by choosing a theme and sticking with it. We love the rustic elegance of dark woods with accent furniture pieces.
Bring the South Inside
The south is bustling with southern artists that create just what they see. Decorate your walls and inspire your guests with local artwork from Jekyll Island or Savannah to give your harm true southern charm.
Bring the South Outside
Plant trees and beautiful flowers that are native to Georgia. Nothing says “welcome to the south” like pulling into your driveway to see beautiful magnolia or peach trees right in your front yard. When the magnolia trees bloom, it’s truly a sight to behold. And who wouldn’t love a fresh peach from the tree? Peach cobbler anyone?
A Comfortable Bedroom
Create a southern oasis in your bedroom and bathroom by adding full-cushion accent pieces and big, soft pillows and down-blankets. The bigger and more comfortable, the better. Go one step further and fill a refurbished antique trophy or vase with local flowers for an added touch of charm.
