Hi y’all, I’m Val, owner of The Charleston Home.
When you were little did you ever grab and look through those little booklets of houses for sale from the grocery store?
Well, that’s pretty much how my obsession with home and design started. I was probably about 8. I think I’ve been designing my dream home ever since.
I moved to Charleston in 2011 after spending a good nine years dreaming up a way to move here. Charleston has always spoken to my soul, and still makes my heart pitter-patter, 7 years later. I started my local-focused Charleston home and design Instagram account in September 2017 and started a more long form version, The Charleston Home Blog in November 2018.
You’ll find lots of features of local shops, artists, designers, and makers, along with general home, décor, and design—pretty much anything I am loving at the moment. My husband and I (plus our dog, Luna!) recently bought our first home- a super cute fixer upper just a couple miles outside downtown Charleston. So you’ll also see updates of what we are working on; creating our own dream home, one DIY project at a time.
By day, I sell Charleston real estate full time, so I am literally living my absolute dream, every single day. I hope you will follow along on this fun and crazy ride!
