Because we’re blogging from Atlanta on ATDC, we’re feeling the need to explain why we belong here. The most obvious reason is that DC is the closest AT comes to covering a distinctly “Southern” region. That got us thinking about whether a distinct regional style below the Mason-Dixon line and east of the Mississippi River even exists. Much of Southern Style could just as easily be called “traditional” — or “kitschy.” Although we gave up kitsch after college — and we’ve always been a tax bracket or two removed from Garden Club glamour — we still think there is such a thing as Southern Style. So we got started on a partial list of objects that are sometimes associated with it. What do you think? Are these Southern? Are they stylish? What would you add?
Anything else? What does Southern Style mean to you?
