‘At Home’ Writer Heather Young Shares What She Loves About Greenville

Who is behind the words of our monthly TALK articles? We sat down with one of our feature contributors to find out.

Heather Young joins our team of contributors this month as At Home Editor. Young is also a licensed real estate agent with Coldwell Banker Caine. She lives in the Dellwood neighborhood of Greenville with her husband, Walker, and 7-year-old daughter, Caroline. “My passion is to serve others and help our amazing community of Greenville. After living here for nearly 17 years, I can honestly say that I love this city more every day. It truly is a special place and I’m grateful to be here!”

What do you like most about Home?

This allows all of us to get a glimpse of the creativity and uniqueness of the people in our community. A home is where someone can truly show an outward expression of their inner self. I especially love knowing the “why” behind design choices because it adds so many layers to the story. Visiting a home is a chance to get to know the people of our community on a more intimate level!

What makes a great house?

The people who live there. Memories, traditions, art, books, photographs, antiques, memorabilia – it all intertwines to tell the story of these people and where they call home.

How often do you see ideas that you want to use in your home?

I see ideas that I want to use ALL of them. SINGLE. DAYTIME. The hardest part is breathing and figuring out how to apply them to my space. The best part of the design is that it’s fluid – ever-changing. So new ideas are always welcome!

What is your favorite neighborhood?

I think this is a trick question! Of course, there’s something to love about EVERY neighborhood. But of course, my favorite is my own neighborhood. The best part is that my parents live around the corner, which is priceless!

What’s your favorite hot spot in Greenville?

The options in Greenville are truly limitless, but without a doubt, the crown jewel of our city is Falls Park. It’s a must for every client I see in town. My family, a scoop of ice cream, and a walk in the park, that’s pretty much the perfect plan for me!
