Did you catch the rundown of our Southern Living’s 75 Most Stylish mini-series and celeb chef Hugh Acheson in Part I?  Onto Part II– featuring on stylish gentleman– Ronnie Rashon Carraway.

Mr. Rashon Carraway, decorator of Rock Hill, South Carolina, keeps himself busy.  Whether he’s decoding your guy’s space on your local TV program (what does his room say about him anyway?) or selling his unique vintage menswear finds on The Carraway Concept, Carraway injects the southern style and flair for which he has become well-known.

From Southern Living: “Southern style is distinctive in that often times it complements the manners of the South,” says Carraway.  “It is warm, bright, and welcoming—the same as a true Southerner.”

We actually hadn’t heard of Carraway prior to his inclusion in the Southern Living piece. But we were so taken by his confident yet classic sartorial sensibility that we had to learn a little more.  So what does Rashon Carraway’s home look like anyway?  You got us– we have no idea.  But our Director of Design, Shelby Girard, came up with a lovely little room design based on Carraway’s Southern Living Look:

Yes, this is an imaginary room.  And yes, we’d move in right away.  Really like the clean & crisp tables from Safavieh paired with the more traditional elements of the room.  And how about those vintage New Orleans prints from Wendover Art?  If you love them, let us know– happy to order them from Wendover for you.

For more information on Ronnie Rashon Carraway, check out his blog, Mr. Goodwill Hunting.  His mantra?  “It doesn’t have to cost a lot to look amazing.”  Cheers to that!
