We were down in one our most favorite Cities in America recently. The Queen City Herself, Charleston South Carolina. We just love Charleston and Charleston has always been a DrapeStyle kind of town! It’s no wonder, the homes in Charleston are simply to die for. We toured some of the Cities most historic homes and then went out to look at some of the new homes being built in communities like Ion in Mt. Pleasant. Amazing Low Country homes with huge porches on two and three levels overlooking lovely town squares and parks for the children. We were joined by a Designer who we have worked with for years and had a chance to see some of the custom window treatments that we have made for her and her Clients. We love the style of Charleston and we love their taste in custom drapery.
After Touring Ion and Mt. Pleasant we took a ride over the Wando River to one of my most favorite places in the United States, Daniel Island, South Carolina. We fell in love with Daniel Island back in the late 90’s when we almost purchased a home site there. We discovered it when Coastal Living Magazine had their “Showhome” on the Island. At the time they were just developing the Island and I thought that it would be a great location for a custom drapery store (this was pre-DrapeStyle). I remember touring some of the model homes and loving the wide pine planked floors and lovely porches. It seemed like there was a golf course at the end of each street. Back then you could buy a “premium” lot for about $45,000. And that was just too much money for us.
Today we visit Daniel Island whenever we are in the Charleston Area. We would love to find a Home in Charleston or Daniel Island that we could use for a Catalog Shoot at some point but in the meantime we’ll keep shipping our drapery and Roman Shades down there. The Folks in South Carolina also love their Valances as well. So, if you are in Mt. Pleasant, Charleston, Daniel Island or anywhere in South Carolina we really appreciate your support of DrapeStyle and ask you to remember us when your are next in the market for your gorgeous set of custom drapes!
