Does your house say “Love Me?”
It’s Valentine’s Day! Romance is everywhere, in the air, all around, all over town. So what would be more applicable to a real estate blog than the topic of romantic houses?
It took me a while to come up with a house I felt was “romantic,” but I have been reading Pat Conroy recently, and this house was in the movie version of The Great Santini. It is known as The Edgar Fripp House and located in Beaufort, SC. The Edgar Fripp House was also used as the home of Kevin Kline and Glenn Close in The Big Chill. Come to think of it, neither of those movies would be high on a Valentine’s Movie Marathon, but the house is beautiful nevertheless.

When I was a little girl, my mother had a book called “Color Me Beautiful” that categorized women as “seasons.” I always wanted to be a dramatic Winter and get to wear bright jewel tones and always fels sorry for the Spring models, who got stuck with the earthy colors I didn’t like.
I was reminded of that old book when I saw this post on the Coldwell Banker blog about choosing the colors for your home decor. Of course, I haven’t heard anyone use seasons to describe their skin tone in years, but I’m going to think of my apartment as a Summer anyway.
This is the view that greeted me upon arriving at work this morning. Here in Georgia we get a little excited about any amount of snowfall, no matter how small. In a normal year, I would not be working today, because if we get two snowflakes to fall simultaneously everyone runs to buy milk and bread and we shut down schools and businesses for the day and have a party. Snow is rare, folks, and we have to take advantage when we can. (more…)
