In this third installment of our “The Design is in the Details” series, we take you through a home on Pawleys Island, South Carolina. This home will wow you from the moment you enter until the moment you exit with its unique patterns and fabrics draping the house to create a vibrant and intriguing story every step of the way.

Starting in the heart of the home, we designed the kitchen with a beautiful finish on cabinets that carries to the ceiling with crown molding wrapped around the top. The custom barstools mirror the cabinet finish, and the fabric on the seats and backs add a pop of red to this stylish room. The island overhangs on two sides to comfortably accommodate seating, and the island’s post lends a furniture feel to the space. A custom butler’s pantry adjacent to the kitchen and den showcases glass doors designed by CHD and fabricated using local resources in Charleston. A pop of red grasscloth on the inside of the cabinets is an intriguing surprise.

Adjacent to the kitchen, the initially small den absorbed a screened-in porch during reconstruction for a more spacious area. The showstopping antique English secretary was hand-picked by our CHD team. Pairing it with a custom-designed chair featuring vibrant fabric and a white finish in a Chinese Chippendale style is the perfect way to combine antique and modern touches for a transitional feel. This client loves color, as is seen in the custom built-ins flanking the fireplace and the matching mantel. The can lights, pendants, and library lights in the built-ins are all on dimmers to control the mood of the space. The sofa is a neutral color to allow signature fabrics to shine, such as the drapery panels and the backs of the recliners. A custom set of drapery panels in raspberry with jute ball fringe was specifically designed for this home.
With its pop of blue, this solo accent chair can be the star of the room! The drapery panels were completed in a solid color to allow the chairs and wallpaper to shine. Strong colors in the wallpaper and the chairs near the window are the center of attention that set the tone for this classic sitting room, while the other furnishings play supporting roles. The use of aqua on the inside of the drapery panels and buttons, the seats of the barrel back chairs, and the accent pillows is a unifying thread in the room.
Do you like the pattern as much as we do? These chairs in the parlor have a two-part fabric application: floral on the inside of the chair and a coordinating graphic print on the outsides.
Throughout this beautiful home, antique and modern items stand together to recreate the feeling you know only as “home.”
