Southern Design Is on the Rise with Black Interior Designers at the Forefront

Southern Design Is on the Rise with Black Interior Designers at the Forefront

There is something special about the home of a southern woman. Great care and consideration are made into making the home stylish, gracious but above all hospitable and welcoming. All this is true of a Black Southern Belle home but there is also great care taking into adding Black culture and heritage into their residences. From the furniture to the art and even the family photos, a statement of heritage, history, and culture is constantly at the forefront and mixed within southern classics, modern living and a dose of good old fashion southern hospitality.

Whether it is creating an inviting kitchen or setting a formal dining room table, southern interior design is distinctive and helping to set so many trends and black designers are a large part of that reason. From the designers based in the South to the ones with Southern roots paying homage from afar, these southern sensibilities are making waves in the design industry and it is having a ripple effect. We have curated a list of a few of the names of the organizations, brands and black women making the difference in the southern design industry. Be sure to add these organizations to your list to support!
