Every inch of Patricia Altschul's 9,500-square-foot Charleston estate, which is called the Isaac Jenkins Mikell House, has an incredible style detail to admire. The Southern Charm matriarch's home, which she's committed to for life, was originally designed by her close friend, the late designer Mario Buatta, who was known as the "Prince of Chintz" because of his fun and incredibly ornate work — which made him a perfect match for Patricia, as she adores big, bold ideas and lots of humor in her home. Everything is worth seeing in the house, which is why we're always see excited when we get a new glimpse!
When Patricia shared an adorable picture of her new Pomeranian puppy tucked into the apron of her butler, Michael Kelcourse, to her Instagram feed, we were instantly distracted by the whimsy of her blue and white wallpaper behind them, which is perfectly Southern with its drawings of plants and flowers. Paired with curtains that match the pattern exactly, the wallpaper is a beautiful accent to the room's neutral furnishings and black stone fireplace.
Of course, Patricia has a flair for amazing wallpaper: There are a lot of different kinds in the Isaac Jenkins Mikell House, including a depiction of American independence by French wallpaper company Zuber that ended up in a Zuber design book.
Please, show us more, Patricia!
