Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 11, 2011 by Lowcountry Boil

On an enhanced site, Charleston’s Eclectic Interior Design Group has recreated its creative design blog. The updated site is easier to navigate and has an overall look and feel that is more in line with the company’s personality and design aesthetic. The inventive blog offers segments that include Decorganizing (decor + organizing which illustrates how form and function meet by organizing your home in an attractive manor), Designer Peeves (design pet peeves), Pro or Con? (topics where readers and other designers discuss), This Week I… (the day to day life of an interior designer) and Before & After (inspiring before and after photos of unique projects). Additionally, the Eclectic Finds site was also relaunched featuring one-of-a-kind finds and to-the-trade items including fabrics, furniture and accessories plus some custom creations that were designed with local artisans.

“On my blog and online shop, I share with my readers and clients quality designs, useful information and unique products that they might not normally have access to discovering,” says interior designer Sidney Wagner. “I get inspiration in various ways by scouring design magazines, blogs, books, shops and catalogs. Through researching new products and studying industry trends, I showcase functional yet well designed spaces.”

After years of extensive work in the industry, Sidney Wagner developed Eclectic Interior Design Group, a Charleston, SC full-service interior design firm specializing in both residential and commercial spaces. Sidney’s passion for design drives her to continually study market trends, research new products and search for unique pieces to complete her custom interiors. Sidney’s organization, creativity and attention to detail can be seen in every one of her designs, regardless of how grand or small the project may be. She named her company “eclectic” as it can be defined as “pulling elements from a variety of sources”. Eclectic Interior Design Group embraces this philosophy by blending pieces from various styles and periods to create beautiful and unique spaces that aptly reflect their clients’ personalities.

Charleston Artist Collective is an innovative online gallery that showcases Charleston artists outside of the conventional gallery scene and allows collectors to purchase affordable art all while giving back to the Charleston community. Each month, the Collective has a theme and the talented artists each paint their interpretation. Collectives are significant to the artist’s practice by combining creative minds, disciplines, ideas, and approaches. The themed paintings are offered in four sizes and sold unframed. 20% of the sales each month go to a local cause or charity to give back to the community and keep connected to supporting Southern Roots.

Allison Williamson founded Charleston Artist Collective in 2010. Her passion for art led her degree in Art History at the University of the South, including courses at Parsons School of Design in Paris and an intensive study on pre-historic caves in the South of France. Her passion for collecting original art came about during her five years managing a gallery in Park City, Utah that specialized in Russian Impressionism. During Allison’s years there she organized and directed art shows in Palm Springs, Philadelphia, Charleston and San Francisco. She also had the amazing experience of going to Russia to visit artists in their studios and select art for the gallery. In 2006, her twin boys were born and her family returned home to Charleston where she started a business helping local artists orchestrate their shows. After helping a group of artists put on three annual shows of their sketches, studies and practice work, Allison realized she had talented artists eager to step up the hours they spent practicing their craft as well as an ever-expanding group of people interested in buying their work. The blending of these two discoveries is what you will see, an online art gallery that shows and sells the work of the artists involved in the Charleston Artist Collective.
