heirloomed is a Southern, lifestyle blog curating things from the past to be preserved for future generations to enjoy. Heirlooms are not dusty things of the past – they are ever so chic & classically-inspired things with a wonderful story to tell, to be cherished for generations to come.
And so, my blog revolves around the things that inspire me – classics, family, the South.
