For the past few days, I have been honored to be participating in a press trip to Charleston, South Carolina, helping Urban Electric celebrate their tenth anniversary. Their beautiful fixtures are more than merely lights. A product of people and place, they fulfill a vision that celebrates the art of craft, the beauty of the handmade and the importance of community. Understanding the flavor of their city is an important part of the picture. From historic homes, to great food to a welcoming spirit, Charleston is an inspiring city that Urban Electric is proud to call home. Tag along for a quick walking tour we took “south of Broad” discovering this charming coastal city with a distinctive style all its own.
So glad you could join me – stop back for more from Charleston and Urban Electric.

Charleston is one of my favorite places in the United States (if not the favorite), and I recognize many of the houses and architectural elements you featured! Some are new to me, though – so beautiful.
I adore Charleston. They certainly know how to make an ‘entrance’ don’t they?
Gorgeous! So many beautiful houses. If you have a chance, stop in at John Pope Antiques. He is lovely, and his shop is fabulous.
I never tire of walking the streets of Charleston. Your photo essay is lovely.
Really beautiful pictures. Brings back memories of when I lived back east and visited Charleston. Just walking around and looking at the lovely details on the homes was one of my favorite trips.
Loved seeing Charleston through your lens! Beautiful! franki

We’re heading there over the holiday and from the looks of it, we won’t want to come back north! Charmeroony! Thanks for sharing.
I love Charleston, thank you so much for sharing this tour!!
Jealous! The most charming city bar none. And the food so sinfully good!
Thank you for the southern walk-about, Stacy. A perfect start for this cold and dreary DC day. The wrought iron work is spectacular. The contrasting stone and brick applications are wonderful. And all those window boxes! Has anybody done a window boxes book?
I hope your weekend and your Thanksgiving are full of fun and restoration w. loved ones.
Your pictures are lovely. If anyone is interested in seeing more Charleston pictures check out Designs in Brick on Facebook. My husband and son are the masons who do all the brick and stonework. They do a fantastic job and I am very proud of them.
