Southern Living with Gal Meets Glam

If you’re one of the millions of follows of Gal Meets Glam, you’ve probably seen glimpses of the Charleston home of founder Julia Engel and her husband Thomas Berolzheimer. Now you can see the entire house that was renovated by architect Beau Clowney and decorated by interior design Olivia Brock of Torrance Mitchell Design in Southern Living. The pastel colors of the home mirror the favorite clothing colors of Julia who has parlayed her style into her own multi-million dollar fashion empire, Gal Meets Glam. Because the duo is not based in Charleston proper but across the river, they have much more room inside and outside which also includes a back dock and beautiful sunsets.

One of the rooms not included in Southern Living is the nursery for the baby girl that Julia is expecting soon. The pink and green color scheme is especially charming and I’m not even a fan of pink.

To read the entire story, check out Southern Living. I’ve included Instagram photos from @juliaengel to round out a look at the house.

The front porch might need a railing after the new baby starts crawling.

The house exterior is Benjamin Moore’s Simply White and with Blue Porcelain shutters and porch floor. The vintage plant stand was found at Petersham Nurseries in London.

The bamboo-lattice porch furniture is Brown Jordan Calcutta.

The foyer floor was hand-painted by artist Suzanne Allen.

Tower bookshelves flank a reupholstered sofa in the living room.

The formal dining room features a Milo Baughman burled-wood Parsons table and French-style chairs from Ballard Designs upholstered in a Cole & Son fabric.

The family room opens up to the kitchen and includes a Henredon Miramar Rush Chair.

The vaulted kitchen includes a La Cornue range with a tall patterned backsplash of Tabarka Studio tile that matches the pale blue cabinets painted in Farrow & Ball Parma Gray No. 27. I really appreciate the painted outlet on the island too. I really hate when interiors are pocked by white outlets and light switches.

The woven rattan pendants and backless counter stools are from Serena & Lily.

The Light Blue Island Wrapped Glassware and Pitchers are from Amanda Lindroth. The pastel blue toaster is from Smeg.

The blue scalloped rim dinner plates are from Aerin while the green plate is Dodie Thayer for Tory Burch. The green batik placemats and Arya napkins are from Amanda Lindroth. Similar wicker wrapped thermal carafe available here.

The loft guest room features sheer embroidered Colefax and Fowler’s Melina fabric and antique bird prints.

The guest bath includes Phillip Jeffries vinyl grasscloth wallpaper.

The dreamy lavender-and-green master bedroom featured the iconic Bowood chintz from Colefax and Fowler while the draperies are in Quadrille Volpi fabric. Similar Aquazzara Powder Puff Mules are available here.

Similar hand-painted lilac brushstroke gourd lamps are available here.

The classic overnight bag is available here.

The master bathroom vanity was painted in Farrow & Ball Pink Ground.

The master bathroom also includes a freestanding tub.

Photos of the new nursery designed by Olivia Brock were posted on Instagram and not part of the Southern Living feature. The wallpaper is from Style Library and the glider is from Lee Industries and upholstered in a Brunschwig & Fils Carsten Check fabric. The rug is from Stark Carpet. The Moses basket is from Camomile London and the diaper bag is a regular bag from l/uniform.

The pink paint color is Pink Ground from Farrow & Ball. The green is possibly a shade from Benjamin Moore. Olivia said she’d get back to me with the exact color.

The baby’s closet is already full of fabulous fashions.

The playroom is filled with pieces from Serena & Lily.
