Gullah Heritage Through Design: Home Decor in Beaufort, SC

Anyone who knows me knows I am all about showcasing your heritage in your home. In the Lowcountry, that heritage is all about the Gullah culture. From the sweetgrass baskets to indigo, Gullah Heritage through design is definitely a way of living and lifestyle. If you are looking to incorporate Gullah heritage into your home, you should be sure to stop by Ngome Lifestyle Afropolitan Boutique in the Beaufort County Chamber of Commerce complex building, run by the mompreneur, Donellia Chives. A beautifully curated boutique, this store is a one-stop shop for art, home goods, fashion and more. Full of black vendors and artisans, if you are looking to decorate your home and support a Black Southern Belle, be sure to make a trip to Beaufort and pick up everything you need.

A basket is a piece of art all on its own. Don’t be afraid to add color with a few of your favorite family heirlooms or art to create a unique vignette on your table or shelf.

Unique pillows and storage units are a great way to start adding style to your home. Don’t be afraid to mix textures and fabrics, a layered look is a great way to tell the story of your heritage and personality.

I am all about setting the table, even the table on the front porch. This beautiful black and white fabric made a perfect table runner for this setting for two.

Palm roses are a beautiful centerpiece or accent for a coffee table along with your favorite pieces of art and books. Don’t be afraid to style your porch tables as much as the indoor tables. Lowcountry living is all about enjoying nature and the warm weather (mixed with a little humidity and great wine)
