10 Southern Decor Essentials We Love from Kolter Homes at the Ponds

We recently took a tour of the Designer models by Kolter at the Ponds in Summerville SC. These homes are not your average model homes. They have so many beautiful upgrades and design elements — we had to share our list of 10 Southern Decor Essentials We Love from Kolter Homes at the Ponds.

Not only are the homes beautiful  — so is the neighborhood which “combines authentic Lowcountry charm with an unparalleled list of modern new home amenities. Located in Summerville, South Carolina, it’s just a short drive from Charleston, yet a world away. Here, over 1,000 acres of preserved land include ancient moss-draped oaks, historic trails, ponds, lakes and acres of open recreational spaces.”

They  always have fun community events like Food Truck Fridays, which takes place on the 4th Friday of every month. At the event, be sure to check out some of the best food the Lowcountry offers and take a stroll through these beautiful homes.

We loved  everything about The Ponds, which happens to be in my hometown. These homes are move-in ready and perfect for the design enthusiast who lives a busy life because they come with designer lighting, outstanding upgrades and custom curtains that I wanted to purchase myself. You can even buy the designer selected furniture and decor at a deeply discounted rate.
