Craig Conover and Paige DeSorbo Reveal How They Separate "Work and Our Private Life"
The Southern Charm and Summer House crossover couple finds plenty of time to relax when they're not hard at work.
Southern Charm and Summer House couple Craig Conover and Paige DeSorbo are back at it again. After working together on a small collection of home accessories for Craig's Sewing Down South brand, the duo have teamed up for another collection and are spilling all the pillow filling about the collaboration.
When chatting with PEOPLE magazine, Craig said: “Our first collection was a limited capsule collection and it sold out so fast. Working together is a big step in our relationship, and it was fun enough that we wanted to do it again!”
While dishing with the outlet in their joint interview, the couple also opened up about how they keep work separate from play in their long-distance relationship.

The fact that Paige is based in New York while Craig lives in Charleston actually informed the couple's latest project. “We got to be explorative with the designs, but keep it in Paige's wheelhouse of that black and white palette,” Craig shared. “We're fortunate that we have the two areas that we spend time in."
He continued: "We've got New York fashion, which I'm still trying to figure out. I'll be so uncomfortable in what she puts me in and I'm like, ‘There's no way that people wear this in public,’ and then I'll get outside and I'll be like, ‘Okay, I look pretty cool.’ And I think Charleston gives Paige a canvas to play with and be a little different. There's certain things down here that you just don't see in New York.”

Though they don't live in the same state full-time, Craig and Paige see a lot of each other. And when they do hang out, they like to keep it cozy. "“We love being at home — I am a couch girl — so I think we are really good at staying home and separating work and our private life,” Paige told PEOPLE.
Craig elaborated: “In our downtime, I think we appreciate it the same because we have similar jobs, and we enjoy getting to navigate life together. I think that's the dichotomy of our relationship is we do work together, but that's our life. We get to share it with everyone, which is really fun most of the time, unless I'm crying on camera.”
