We’re honored to share our historic Charleston project, the Branford-Horry House, featured in the Jan/Feb issue of Veranda. For this special home we were comissioned to take the Georgian-style home, originally built in the 1700s, into a new era for our longtime client Sarah Rose Johnson and her family. William says, “Sarah wanted a happy, relaxed house, where every room is used. Plus there was his client’s stipulation: no ornate chandeliers.” Thomas adds, “I remember decorating Sarah’s childhood bedroom with orange geraniums on white chintz. She shares our firm’s reverence for history, yet we both also believe that tradition is now, that traditional aspects can be brought forward in a contemporary way.” While it still retains its grandeur and classical features, no room is off limits, and wholeheartedly welcomes the family, guests and the family’s Australian Shepherd, Bear.
Thank you to the whole Veranda team for this wonderful story. You may read the story and see inside the home here. Our senior designer William Cullum also walks readers through the home’s Cypress Room on Veranda’s Instagram here.
