Southern Springs for Spring Home Refreshment – Garden & Gun

Around this time last year, I noticed an increase in fresh produce from home decor companies in the South (and beyond), and that movement hasn’t slowed down, likely due to the attention and interest in interior design brought on by the pandemic. All new ideas make me feel inspired and excited for future projects. Here are some of my favorites for Spring 2023.


I fell in love with the patterned floor tiles of studio of joy a few years ago (they were finalists for the 2015 Made in the South Awards). This spring, designer Sally Bennett presented the company with a brand new range of 100% New Zealand wool rugs featuring the brand’s signature designs.


Grasscloth removable wallpaper

North Carolina native Roxy Owens leads the Social Society furniture empire, which has just launched a collection of wallpapers with Nuwallpaper of very credible and also very removable grasscloth wallpapers. Anyone who has ever installed wallpaper, and especially grass, knows how difficult it is to remove. I am really impressed with the reality of this temporary grass. And it’s so fun to think you could take it all off in twenty minutes without damaging the wall. Great.



I love Florida native Anna Rifle Bond’s hand painted floral designs for her Rifle Paper Co., and I’m thrilled you can now enjoy it on an upholstery line. I particularly love the English sofa with brass wheels in its timeless blue and white pomegranate print.



Charleston designer Cortney Bishop was inspired by her Greek ancestry to create Kalos, her second line of textiles for Harwood House. The small prints are particularly beautiful, especially Ziggy from the new collection.



I own two of the put-them-anywhere-and-they-work stuffed cubes from Coley Home, so I know how practical and fun their pieces are. This is exactly why I think their latest introductions are so smart, especially the slipcover sofa, which, like all of their designs, is made to order in North Carolina.
