The Home Issue
Whether you’re a propective homebuyer or a homeowner in search of ideas to spruce up your home, the annual Lowcountry Home & Garden Show and Parade of Homes Tour is the place to start for ideas, inspiration and the local professionals who know how to make it all come together. This year’s event will be held March 21-23 at the Buckwalter Recreation Center in Bluffton. Our Home Sweet Home section begins on page 60 with a tour of Dwight and Susie Emanuelson’s ’50s-inspired contemporary beachfront property in Sea Pines. From there you can MARCH your way through a few more home related topics. (See what I just did there? It’s March. Get it?)
