Coastal Fog continues to provide interior design and other services such as workshops using fresh Christmas greenery collected from nearby woodlands; refinishing classes; wine and cheese tastings; and table center- piece tutorials—all drawing fans from nearby and farther afield.

"All that you will find in Coastal Fog is a reflection of the lifestyle we hold close to our hearts." Greenville and neighboring communities find it's one worth embracing.
