My name is Samantha Meighan and I am a Hospitality Management major at the University of South Carolina.

I spent my summer as an intern at The Bernards Inn in the hotel division. I was a front desk agent and was able to use what I learned in my classes in real life situations. I took “Hotel Management” as one of my courses which taught me all about how a hotel functions and the different terminology used for the front desk. However, working in an actual hotel versus learning about it in one of my classes made me so much more knowledgeable about the hospitality industry.

Did you know the term Rosé (roh-zay) is French for “pink” or rose-colored? This refers to the color of the wine. Things in common with all three Rosés: All are dry to semi-dry and are made from red grapes; all have a short skin maceration time, meaning time the skin stays in contact with juice and seeds—with most Rosés, this is usuall...

Apple Green Room
Two more rooms with fresh personalities have recently been renovated at the Inn. Similar to the recently completed Metro 14 and 15, Rooms 19 and 21 provide guests with elegance in an efficient space. I chose a fresh, uplifting apple green wall color for Room 19. The tobacco stained headboard and furniture is beautifully contrasted by crisp white accessories and mirrored frames. The green and naturalistic textures and fabrics are soothing for the stay, as are the fern details on the upholstery and accessories and the textural woven desk chair. In both rooms I strived to feature interesting wa...
