Maybe I haven’t mentioned this before, but Robert and I are jet setters.
Or at least we pretended to be for a weekend. (It’s not too hard for me to get much more glamorous from the usual life of yoga pants and messy mom buns.)
But since Robert and I had hit the 5 year marriage mark and we’d never ever been to this city, we hit up Savannah, Georgia. If you’ve never been before, it oozes Southern charm, y’all! And there was so much beauty all around us the entire trip that I just had to share it with you guys.
This was in our gorgeous hotel lobby at The Bohemian Hotel.
There were so many yummy restaurants footsteps outside the door on the riverfront, and I think we ended up eating the entire time. Huey’s had the best breakfast complete with melt-in-your-mouth beignets that you could swear came straight from a cafe in New Orleans.
But along with the eating we walked. A LOT. Because the houses and architecture in the city are all works of art with compelling history.
This porch had me at hello.
And Robert was all goo-goo eyes over this pair of American flags on the wrought iron facade. That’s his thing to look for everywhere we go. (Hence his office wall art.)
These shutters made me think of Scarlett O’Hara’s green velvet dress for some reason. Fiddle dee dee.
We walked what felt like miles to find St. John’s Cathedral. The inside is even more spectacular than the exterior. (But I didn’t take any pictures and said a prayer instead.)
We spotted this cute little door covered in vines on a side street. It was shorter than I am.
Inside one of the many many shops we visited was this chic staircase. Someone on Instagram pointed out to me that it almost looks like a shape of a person in the brick on the right side of this shot.
We popped into The Paris Market per Rhoda’s recommendation from Southern Hospitality and oh. my. gracious. alive! There was so much eye candy in this place, including that silly guy in the mirror there. (Wink wink.)
It was like Ballard Designs and Anthopologie had a baby and it was the prettiest baby in the entire home decor world.
And now I’m convinced we need a pineapple statue in our house. Along with giant moss balls. That I’m pretty sure our three year-old would try to play soccer with, but it’s nice to dream.
Oh, and to go with the pineapple statues, every place setting from now on will have its own personal garden gnome. And as long as those awesomesauce chairs come with them, it’s a done deal.
Pineapple and gnome jokes aside though, this chandelier there really was a showstopper. Those oyster shells even glimmered a little bit in the light.
There were so many lovely textures everywhere like these old suitcases on display at a vintage hat shop we visited.
And this French apothecary display was total perfection.
But the pretty, shiny shops didn’t hold a candle to this place…
This was just one tiny corner of a huge antique warehouse called Jere’s Antiques with furniture shipped in from Europe dating all the way back to the 16th Century. Seriously. There was room after room after room of furniture. It was like walking through a museum, and we got a history lesson and everything.
We took a ghost tour in a horse-drawn carriage too, and as terrified as I am of horror movies and ghost stories, it was really a great laugh and so much fun.
None of it would have been nearly as wonderful without this guy by my side. We had a total blast.
Were you inspired by anything too? Have you ever been to Savannah before? We’re already thinking we need another trip to check out what we missed. It’s one of those cities that makes you wonder, “If cobblestones could talk…”
