Forged out of aged barn wood siding, the floors in this home give a historic quality to the interior and fit the home’s river-front scenery.

The transoms over the windows are made from trim and mirrors to visually link them to the windows.

This antique French garden-edging tile is used as decoration above and below the television.

PAWLEYS ISLAND, SOUTH CAROLINA

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.

This beautiful antique English secretary was hand-picked by our CHD team for the client’s new den. A custom-designed chair with vibrant fabric and a white finish in a Chinese Chippendale style is the perfect way to combine antique and modern touches for a transitional style.

The kitchen was designed with a beautiful finish on cabinets that carry to the ceiling with crown molding wrapped around the top. The custom barstools mirror the cabinet finish, and the fabric on the seats and back adds a pop of red. The island overhangs on two sides to comfortably accommodate seating, and the island’s post lends a furniture feel to the space.

Adjacent to the kitchen, the initially small den absorbed a screened-in porch during reconstruction for a more spacious area. This client loves color, as is seen in the custom built-ins flanking the fireplace and the matching mantel. Can lights, pendants, and library lights in the built-ins are all on dimmers to control the mood of the space.

We chose the sofa to be a neutral color to allow signature fabrics to shine, such as the drapery panels and the backs of recliners.

Do you like the pattern? We do! These chairs have a two-part fabric application: floral on the inside of the chair and a coordinating graphic print on the outsides. The drapery panels were completed in a solid color to allow the chairs and wallpaper to shine.

With its pop of blue, this solo accent chair can be the star of the room!

The wallpaper sets the tone for this classic sitting room. The strong colors in the wallpaper and the chairs near the window are the center of attention, and the other furnishings are supporting players.

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.

A custom butler’s pantry adjacent to the kitchen and den showcases glass doors designed by CHD and fabricated using our local resources in Charleston. A pop of red grasscloth on the inside of the cabinets is an interesting surprise.

This raspberry beauty is a custom set of drapery panels with jute ball fringe designed specifically for this home.

ISLE OF PALMS, SOUTH CAROLINA

Come along with us as we walk you through the fourth installment of The Design is in the Details blog. This time we’re on Isle of Palms, South Carolina.

We maximized seating within this large open floor plan with an oversized coffee table to center the room. The layered rugs add texture and style to the design, and the calming coastal palette is ideal for a comfortable and intimate gathering place. The Crypton Performance swivel chairs and modern white sofas allow for easy viewing of the waterfront scenery.

A modernized fireplace adds a crisp, updated look to this Lowcountry home.

A unique statement piece will get a conversation started in any sitting room.

This upgraded kitchen blends a bold color to highlight the center island complimented by the soft, coastal whites of the cabinets and backsplash. Cabinets and drawers are finished with a sleek bronze hardware, and custom counter stools are covered with performance fabric. Statement pendant lights over the island add interest and dimension.

The custom dining area is designed to pull the coastal feel throughout the home with the deep ocean blue tabletop, seafoam pigmented white seating, and a uniquely designed light fixture.

Adding patterns and bold colors to this wet bar brings excitement into a smaller space.

The hanging chandelier amid this elegantly designed staircase illuminates the center of the home with style and grace.

In this installment of the Design is in the Details blog series, we introduce you to a remarkable Pawleys Island home with a warm coastal feel and Lowcountry vibes throughout the property. Customized to the owner’s dream and vision, this stunning home will amaze you from the moment you step inside.

blue chairs sitting area

This client loves the outdoors and wanted it to be brought into their home. All the fabrics and finishes have a Lowcountry coastal feel to them proven by the natural grass mirrors and the batik fabric on the chairs in aqua color.

blue cabinets kitchen

With a marsh grass vibe and oyster shells, this chandelier is the star of the room and the lamps were added for additional lighting effect. Designer tip: add surface-mounted outlets for easy access!

dining room high stools

This custom gathering table is the perfect casual dining spot in this open floor plan.  The upholstered bar stools done in a performance fabric add the perfect, custom touch. Planning ahead by the designer allowed for pendants to be hung from the beam above!

blue dining room chairs

The accent wall in this dining room was an Audubon print replicated onto wallpaper for high-impact wall art! The dining chairs were designed with a 2-part fabric application with the inside fabric on the seat and back in a performance fabric to protect from stains and the skirts and backs of chairs in a more decorative leaf pattern.

four poster bed

This master bedroom is designed predominantly grey and taupe with pops of green and violet as seen in the ottomans and accent chair. The wallpaper accent wall behind the bed is a perfect counterbalance to the ceiling and drapery panels.

Bar and livingroom

This backsplash carried all the way to the ceiling is quite a work of art! Completed with flanking art and art lights sets the tone for the rest of the room.

The tiled pattern on the floor centers the primary bathroom, drawing your attention and complementing the room’s other elements. This gives an open, stylish feel to a calm, natural design.

star bathroom

Vanity mirrors do not have to be boring! This bathroom’s beauty is in the special details between the acrylic vanity hardware and the fun makeup stool! Check out the gorgeous arabesque shower tile in the reflection as well.

CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA

Come along as we take you through another installment of the Design is in the Details blog series. This historic townhome, South of Broad in Charleston, South Carolina, makes you feel welcome as soon as you step through the door.

The client wanted a customizable family room layout as a subtle passthrough from the foyer to the kitchen.

We gave the living room a modern look using eclectic-style guest chairs with strap detailing. The two low-back chairs were handpicked with designer fabrics to add pattern to the neutral seating arrangements.

A custom made ottoman with luxury fabrics, leather cording, and a custom-sized area rug pull the room together. The rug is 100% jute with mitered edge tape border layered under a hand-selected champagne cowhide to add texture.

Hanging behind the low-back guest chairs is the client’s oversized statement artwork and the two chests near the window add symmetry.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a breakfast nook that adds a rustic twist to the area. Antler sconces, a chandelier, and customizable art give it a minimalistic appeal.
