    Great post! I'm a huge fan of the low country. We vacation annually in Isle of Palms (Charleston, SC). GDC Home is a great store to get the "low country look". Have a great weekend! Lisa

  • I've always loved low country home plans and interior design. I dream of a home with a big front porch because of it. This region is one of my favorite areas of the South.
