Have you ever been to Charleston? Everyone who goes seems to fall head over heels for this picturesque southern city, and after years of wanting to pay a visit, I’m excited to be heading there this August! The trip will be for The Blog Societies’ annual conference and to say I’m looking forward to exploring the city and its dining offerings is an understatement!
If you’ve seen photos of Charleston (highly recommend following Annie Reeves and her Instagram for a solid highlight reel of the city), it won’t come as a surprise that a boutique hotel that looks like Zero George exists. It’s situated on what used to be two historic plots of land known as the “Federal Green,” and the property as it stands today is actually made up of five buildings. I think it strikes the perfect balance of homey, crisp, and southern–what do you think?
This is the dreamiest fireplace setup…the detailing and gold mirror! Oh, and the duchess chair and coffee table. I’ll take ’em all.
Pretty accordion side tables (Urban Outfitters of all places has very similar ones under $80). If you haven’t picked up on this now, I love mixing traditional + modern elements. Zero George does this so well because the hotel draws on Charleston’s history, incorporating two styles: the “British Trade” (“classic and tailored”) as well as “French Romantic” (“light and soft impression.”)
The hotel has just 18 studios and suites, so it’s no surprise that no detail goes unnoticed. All of the rooms/suites have private piazzas overlooking the courtyard and each room contains the building’s original architectural elements. I’m convinced that this is the reason why well-maintained boutique hotels consistently catch my eye. After years of staying in large chain hotels (nothing wrong with that, just a different experience!), I’m ready to experience the boutique life a little bit more!
These sconces!! Something about them just instantly pulls a room together, not to mention preserves valuable nightstand space.
I don’t normally love stark white decor, but am a serious fan of this bathroom. That cross handle faucet is to die for.
This room has the perfect amount of minimalism for a living space…also, that’s a great way to display two pieces of art together.
Zero George’s outdoor space has rattan, which is one of my favorite materials and is seriously underrated. I mean, these brown chairs…
The hotel restaurant is apparently incredible, and I’d imagine it’s hard not too stay at the hotel without taking a few walks around the property or enjoying a drink al fresco in the courtyard or on a patio. It’s safe to say you’ll see some IRL photos when I’m in Charleston this summer but for now, either book a stay or start dreaming of one!
