If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to meet a true southern belle, look no further than Hanna Seabrook. Just skim the GADABOUT Creative founder’s blog, and you’ll get a clear idea of her sophistication, charm, and classic sensibility. We’re huge fans of her clean and pretty work, so we were thrilled at the chance to peek inside the historic home she and her husband rent in downtown Charleston, South Carolina. We instantly fell in love with her light-filled house, and of course the impeccable style and southern roots that appear in every corner of Hanna’s space!

Tell us about GADABOUT, your work and how you got started.
I started the GADABOUT blog in college in 2008 and then followed up with a stationery company the following year. Though I am currently redoing the stationery line and the iPhone app (POST.) that accompanies it, it is totally responsible for my career in graphic design.
Customers began asking for custom illustration work for cards, and then logos and then websites. It all happened so organically that I steadily expanded my portfolio, small team and skill set over a 4 year span. I have gotten to the point now where I love every bit of what I do and truly feel like a professional. Most of my time is now spent solving creative problems through logo, web design and paper products. Bloggers, interior designers, and brick and mortar shops have made up most of my client list, though I love the challenge of getting into a new medium or project!
I love the southern style!! love her blog! thanks for the introduction!!!!
I’m from South Carolina too and she does such a good job of combining southern style with modern touches! Her home is beautiful!
I ADORE her home! Such a surprise, given her design style. Very cool. Especially taken with “The minute you finally get it right… when something has found it’s
proper place. It can be as simple as bringing a vase upstairs from
downstairs or switching two paintings, but it lights you up and makes
you feel complete. I adore that feeling.” Could not agree more! ox
Now we’re talking! This girl is so much more my style than a lot of the other modern homes that are being featured right now on blogs. I LOVE antiquing and am inspired to keep looking for little treasures after seeing this post. New follower of Gadabout.
What a great eye she has, I very much enjoyed this post.
The vase in Slide 15–Im sure is a vintage find. I am obsessed with the color/stars.
Love Hana!!! She is incredibly creative and talented! She did the logo for our photography business and we get compliments on it all of the time! Gorgeous house!!!

She has a beautiful home. I especially love the mint colored vase with stars that was featured- what an amazing piece! I also love that she has stacks of books all over :)

Such a beautiful home! It’s a dream of mine to retire somewhere south…live in a nice, big, airy house with neutral tones and amazing shuttered bay windows!
Bri – the skirt is by Sheridan French!
Ummm I am kind of obsessed with Hanna….she has amazing style and a great eye for design! And I always love a girl who is just as obsessed with vintage and quirky antiques as myself!
