Idyll Bound’s Must-See Hot Spots in Greenville, SC

Today on the blog I’m sharing my favorite local inspirations in my own backyard. Join me on a tour of the southeast’s fastest growing city and just 15 minutes away from where Idyll Bound calls home - the luscious Greenville, SC. Spoiler alert - you know I’m a sucker for anything with greenery! I’ve chosen spots that aren’t just insta-worthy, but are admirably designed and incredibly well thought out.


Juniper’s floral galore entrance and oversized greenery makes for the city’s hottest photo opp right now. A girls’ night paradise, you’ll see tons of photos on Instagram of best-dressed girlfriends near the front surrounded by flowers or by their iconic mirror wall. Described as an “intoxicating rooftop garden” Juniper’s interior has me ready to throw on my brightest sundress and grab dinner among plush tulips and hydrangeas. From a design perspective, the wooden floor and mix of patio-esque furniture (see striped booths) is simply refreshing when it comes to a one-of-a-kind experience.

Residence Inn and SpringHill Suites

Another nature-inspired space, the downtown Residence Inn and Springhill Suites highlight the beauty of wood tones and tree-like accents. Paired with luxurious lighting and inviting smells, walking into either one of these side-by-side hotels feels like home away from home. You won’t find typical boxy hotel furniture here, especially in the lobby where boho-inspired swinging chairs make you feel like you’ve found the world’s most glamorous treehouse. Between the two hotels, the theme takes on many different forms with robust wooden structures in some areas, and delicate twig-like lighting in others. The variety of design makes Residence Inn and SpringHill Suites one of my favorite inspirations of threading together details based on a big, bold theme.

The Village Grind

Named by the NY Times as one of Five Places to Visit in Greenville, SC, The Village Grind is one of the most insta-worthy coffee shops downtown. Nestled in the Village of West Greenville, it’s become a pillar of the community to gather for a cup of coffee or hunker down to work. In a way, they implemented the rustic + greenery aesthetic before it was cool, and the paint color for the green accent wall is even a popular FAQ (it’s Rainforest by Behr, btw.)

With vintage furniture, a reading nook, and plants hanging from every corner, it’s almost like an urban sunroom with an espresso bar. The exposed brick and earth tones make this interior one to replicate if you’re looking to bring a cozy atmosphere to your home office. You might not be able to fit in an espresso bar, but the vibe is certainly worth it!

Ink n Ivy

Ink n Ivy’s atmosphere brings a little bit of everything from luxury chandeliers to homespun wall art. While a lot of places usually stick to one clear theme, they’ve really done eclectic right with abstract decor, fun colors, and a myriad of tchotchkes. Truly, they brought the whole shebang. Described as “funky-chic digs” they nail the everything-but-the-kitchen-sink design in a way that feels like an old speakeasy got an American fare makeover. A place that feels like home and high-class all in one, there’s a little something for everyone to love. With three floors of style, you never know what you’ll see next!
