Southern Accents: Sad to See You Go; Glad You Are Staying Online

Posted by on Aug 9, 2009

When I first read the news last Thursday that Southern Accents was discontinuing its publication, my first thought was, “What about the Southern Accents Showhouse?” I look forward to that issue every year.  In fact, my favorite house of all time, which happens to be near where I grew up, was the Southern Accents Showhouse of 2005, “Old Dominion”.  As a tribute to Southern Accents, and perhaps to give you some decorating inspiration as well, feast your eyes upon my dream house.

Be sure to pick up the Sept/Oct issue as this is Southern Accents last.  I hope this years 2009 Showcase house will be featured; it is in Fort Worth, TX.  If you would like to see photos from other Southern Accents showhomes, check out Rachel Halvorson’s post today at www.nestegg.typepad.com.  Since Southern Accents will remain online, perhaps it can print again in the future.  So long my favorite….I’ll miss you.

If I ever build custom, this is what my house will look like

If I ever build custom, this is what my house will look like. Well, perhaps this outline with a modern spin.
