KIAWAH ISLAND, SC

Decked out in primarily Fall hues, this Kiawah Island home has a warmth that is appropriate for all seasons.  An upside-down floor plan gives privacy to the 4 guest suites below and allows for impressive ceilings on the 2nd floor.

With the early selection of the chandelier and the color palette for this room, it became clear that a painted ceiling would just not do.  A beautifully stained wood ceiling creates a moody cap for this room and makes a lofty space feel quite cozy.

A favorite spot for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening, this Living Room nook is a favorite of the homeowners.  Incredibly smooth calfskin leather chairs and unmatched Kiawah marsh views make this a nook that anyone would be reluctant to leave.

A custom-designed fireplace surround is accented by antique mirror and carved wood mouldings above, proving that placing a television over a fireplace does not mean relegating style.

The hand-dyed ,raw silk drapery fabric was the inspiration for the custom rug in this space.

As part of our contribution to the home’s interior architectural features, we added the truss beams for both visual interest and also, quite practically, as a place to suspend a beautiful light fixture.  Glass mosaic tile adds a contemporary edge to an otherwise traditional kitchen.

A beautifully, hand-painted Italian sideboard acts as the serious counterpart to a cheeky piece of art.

Expansive views of Kiawah’s well-preserved marsh sanctuary make this a coveted place to dine.  The table and hand-knotted rug are bespoke to fit the elliptical shape of the window bay.

A study in tone-on-tone greens, this guest bedroom is a plush, serene retreat.

A contemporary, Tibetan rug in saturated blue is deftly tucked under a rather ethereal 4-post canopy bed.  Banana leaf fan blades add island flair and are framed by the up-lighting that emphasizes the dramatic wood ceiling above.

Integrating a love for ferns into this bedroom was intuitive given the expansive foliage just outside.

Proving that purple can be for all ages, this shade of eggplant is both dramatic and sustainable.  A raised cut-velvet settee and ottoman make a perfect spot for curling up with a good book or to enjoy Kiawah’s marsh views.

Painted French furniture and fabrics with modern flair create a welcoming bedroom retreat.

A large-scale plaid in blue and green hues creates a fresh mood mixed with traditional furnishings.

A classic, French bed frame is modernized with a couture, striped linen fabric.

With distinct wallpaper, this powder bath sets a cheerful tone but retains a level of formality in keeping with the rest of the house.
