Plus Julia Berolzheimer partners with Pottery Barn for garden party ready designs

Perfect Match
Blogger and designer Julia Berolzheimer, formerly of Gal Meets Glam, has collaborated with furniture and home decor retailer Pottery Barn on an extensive summer home decor collection ranging from dinnerware and bed linens to bath towels and garden accessories. The designs reflect Berolzheimer’s romantic aesthetic with floral prints, a soft blue and green color palette, and natural elements inspired by indoor-outdoor living and entertaining in her Charleston home and garden. Pieces include her favorite, the ”Julia” potting station, as well as a ”Clementine” reversible quilt and ”Marigold” reversible duvet, both with matching shams, named after her daughters. Last year, Berolzheimer partnered with Hanna Seabrook of Gadabout Creative to launch lifestyle brand Parterre, featuring styles for women, children, and home. [321 King St.,]

Dive In
Local swimsuit designer Caroline Robinson has opened a flagship Citrine store and design space at the Shops of Mount Pleasant, just in time for the summer beach season. Robinson, who previously owned Drift Charleston boutique with her husband, said she had outgrown the nearby showroom, which had a smaller space and limited hours. The new retail store features bathing suits for women and children, as well as Teza Collection jewelry and accessories, a line Robinson founded with her sister. Shoppers also can pick up Havaianas flip-flops, Indego Africa straw bags, and Salt + Stone reef-safe sunscreen on their way to the beach. Look out for a Citrine collab with artist Jenn Griffith and for the Teza Collection to debut a ready-to-wear line soon. [320 W. Coleman Blvd., Ste. N,]

Marking a Milestone
Brackish—which started out with feather bow ties and expanded to include statement-making earrings and accessories for women in 2019—is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. The company was founded in April 2012, five years after co-owner Ben Ross gifted a turkey-feather bow tie to his groomsman, fellow Wofford College grad Jeff Plotner. To celebrate, Brackish has introduced its limited-edition “Cheers” tie, featuring the turkey feathers that launched the brand at the center of the design, as well as pheasant, goose, and guinea plumage, selected to represent the founders’ South Carolina roots.
