A Southern Living Home

Robbie Fisher and Beth Mayeaux remember being enamored with Southern Living as little girls, “flipping through,” and looking at the different house plans the magazine has featured and sold since its first issue. Fisher was born and raised in Greenville, and Mayeaux in Jackson.


Doors of Hope: The Perkins Home

When Doors of Hope first approached Jessica Perkins and asked to feature her home in the Christmas home tour, at first she declined. She said she prefers to keep her and her family more private, and opening her home would seem to negate that; plus, she wasn’t planning to decorate too much because her family would be spending Christmas in the Bahamas. Naturally, she had a few reservations. But she mulled it over for a little while, and agreed.


Doors of Hope: The Walkington Home

Lesley and Brian Walkington met in San Diego at a swing dance class. The Mississippi-raised southern girl moved out there to pursue her master’s degree, and he had always lived in California.
