Summer in the South brings so many celebrations that keep us on the go: Fourth of July fireworks, cookouts with friends, poolside dinner parties, and more. Yet it’s also the time to slow down and savor the simple delights of the season. For me, that means catching up on my sewing projects, puttering around my garden, and trying out new recipes (I have my eye on the frozen pineapple and coconut treat on page 109, just the thing to enjoy on a hot afternoon!). “WHO CAN FIND A VIRTUOUS WOMAN? FOR HER PRICE IS FAR ABOVE RUBIES.” PROVERBS 31:10 With my grandchildren out of school for the summer, this is also the perfect season to plan some fun get-togethers with extended family. I always welcome the chance to steal away for a…

southern sojourns

I love to travel, and while I’ve been fortunate enough to visit amazing places all over the world, some of my very favorites are right here in the South. The cobbled streets and row houses of Charleston; the split rail fences and paddocks around Lexington, Kentucky; the wild dunes of Georgia’s Cumberland Island—these destinations and others hold countless memories from years past and, I hope, many more to come. If you’ve been following along with our Southern Literary Trail travel series this year, you have enjoyed a glimpse into legendary writers’ homes and hometowns across the region. In this issue we take you to Andalusia in Milledgeville, Georgia (page 45), the farm where Flannery O’Connor lived and wrote during her last years. With the main house (pictured above) newly restored and…

secret retreat

Along the scenic Calibogue Sound at the southernmost tip of South Carolina, a private paradise awaits those fortunate enough to find it. The distinctive natural beauty of Haig Point, a remote sea island community with no hotels or cars, comes from a marriage of coastal wonder and Lowcountry charm. Long stretches of secluded beaches where dolphins frolic in the waves give way to live oaks draped in cascading Spanish moss that shades winding streets made for meandering by foot, bike, or electric golf cart. For centuries, Daufuskie Island has stood as a stunning, well-kept secret just across the sound from bustling Hilton Head Island. In more recent decades, Daufuskie’s luxurious 1,000-acre Haig Point community, only accessible by a 30-minute private ferry ride from Hilton Head, has lured residents with the simplicity…

life in color

While sitting at a rooftop venue in Rio de Janeiro’s famous Copacabana neighborhood, Shelby Dillon was mesmerized by the bright towels and umbrellas spread for miles on the beaches below. Her artistic instinct kicked in and she translated this bird’s-eye view into abstract and colorful paintings of umbrellas, a series that is currently in its third year. “I’ve always found inspiration in the world around me,” says Shelby, who is mostly self-taught. Having grown up in Hilton Head, South Carolina, her subjects tend to reflect her native surroundings, complete with palm trees and Lowcountry marshes—settings many Southern women are drawn to. “[My paintings] are often made out of memories and feelings, so they are a little bit abstracted and full of different colors.” Shelby’s distinctive style emerged when her husband’s job took…

seaside savvy

Tracey Rapisardi’s larger-than-life personality fills a room like a gigantic sun above a sparkling blue ocean. In a similar way, her gregarious enthusiasm for coastal design and love of the sea spills out on each of 164 pages in her new coffee-table book, Simply by the Sea. “The sea has always been a part of my life and my family’s life,” says Tracey. She and her husband, Richie, live in Sarasota, Florida, but grew up along the New England seaboard, the inspiration for the enchanting aesthetic showcased in eight projects in her book. Relaxed bungalow style with a pristine white backdrop allows vintage finds and the colors of the coast—turquoise, aqua, blues, greens, and sand—to shine in her designs. Punches of red and pink, bright like wild beach roses or softly muted…
