Building. Inspiration. Design.


Never Miss a New Post.



Welcome to my passion project: Southern Spaniel!

I'm a designer from Charlotte, NC that loves following ALL THINGS HOME. The mission of this blog is to share inspirations, mood boards, and home design projects. 


In addition to trend, my husband and I are in the middle of our own massive home renovation turned build project. This blog will serve as a creative outlet as well as share the construction chronicles of our journey. We welcome you to learn with us along the way of building our dream home.

On the Nightstand:

Looking for a Summer thriller to add a little fantasy to your days? Lucy Foley takes the reader on an Agatha Christy style whodunit that keeps you guessing until the very end. Set on a remote island off the coast of Ireland, the plot centers around a wedding of some of society VIPs...and a murder that overshadows it. Each chapter is told from a different cast member's point of view creating authentic perspective and emotional attachment to the characters. As it is often found in life, it's a small world and everyone is connected.


I've met a lot of wonderful people along my journey; would love to connect and meet you, too!
