ver the holidays, I think about baking Christmas cookies with my mom. It's one of my fondest memories and it all happened in what many refer to as the heart of the home; the kitchen. Our annual kitchen guide showcases dozens of the Lowcountry’s top kitchens, completed by professionals you’ll find right here in Charleston. Speaking of kitchens, if you haven’t eaten at Lewis Barbecue, JL’s Southwest Brisket Burgers, or Rancho Luis you're missing out. These Charleston hot spots each feature cuisine inspired by the pitmaster’s home state of Texas. In our cover story, John welcomes us into his downtown dwelling where he’s constantly brainstorming new ideas to bring to his restaurants. We talk about John’s Texas

childhood, how he brought some of that Southwestern flare to his Lowcountry home, and of course, barbecue. This issue also gives you a sneak peek into some of Charleston’s newest, most stylish restaurants. The food scene is one of the biggest draws to the Lowcountry and restaurants recognize that; sparing no expense on design. You’ll be able to shop the look throughout this feature to help bring these fabulous designs to your own home. Throughout the following pages, I hope you’re not only inspired by the beautiful photos but also by the stories of the human experience. Happy reading!

A Shower Sure to Suit Sit down and chat with Benjamin Smith, KBRS’ Charleston manager about how they started and how they improve Lowcountry bathrooms. What sets you apart from your competitors? Our ability to manufacture a shower base to any size, shape, or drain location. We also don’t tie the customer into using a drain; as long as we know the model of the drain they prefer we can make our pans work with any drain imaginable. With our glassing technology, our pans have the highest PSI ratings in the industry, which means zero limitations on tile size.

Story by Micaela Arnett • Photography by Callie Cranford

What does it mean to be "Hard Core" like KBRS? KBRS shower system components are built with "Hard Core" in mind at all times. From our product materials to our people, we appreciate the passion, strength and commitment needed to be the best. To us, "Hard Core" is more than a tag line, it is a way of life. "Hard Core" is a beacon to homeowners, installers, builders, and architects who are not only passionate about providing the very best solution when it comes to home water removal management, but also passionate about pushing the limits on life.

Tell us about what KBRS does and why it is beneficial? We are a local custom manufacturer that fabricates waterproof shower bases and mortar replacement slopes. Our custom manufacturing process allows us to build for any application in any size. You can choose from one of our 25 existing stock sizes or custom leak proof designs to fit your needs.

Your website highlights surfing. Can you explain the connection? Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is the core of many modern professional surfboards. We start with a 3lb EPS core and then add a combination of epoxy and glass fibers to the exterior of the core which we call glassing. This gives you an extremely durable and lightweight product. Just as you would shape a surfboard, we use the same process in shaping our custom pans to your desire. For more information, call KBRS at (805) 709-5771 or visit

Planning and Purpose at the Cornerstone Builder Anthony Wiedemuth and Michelle Almeyda-Wiedemuth of Cornerstone Estates discuss their favorite features available in a luxury home build.

He Said: Light programming. I like the convenience of being able to shut off and/or dim the interior and exterior lights, using your phone and/or another voice operated integrating devices from anywhere. These features can also maximize energy savings.

The home theater is a feature I’ve offered since 2003. It is definitely a luxury item that many have found to be a life saver in this last year. Some of the features I’ve included are fiber optic lighting to create a ceiling with constellations and shooting stars and massage chairs.

Steam room. This is a great therapeutic feature for the home with so many physical and mental health benefits. Installing one in your home will give you the ability to unwind from a stressful day and create a spa-like environment within your home. When installed in your shower, it will become a convenient part of your day.

She Said: Favorite Luxury Feature?

Home Theater or Wine Room?

Home Gym or Steam Room?

The ability to control everything from one device no matter where I am. One of my favorite features is being able to control the temperature well before I arrive home. While most thermostats have a program option, a smart home allows you to make adjustments remotely.

Anthony and I love entertaining at home and over the years we’ve developed a love for wine. In fact, when we discover one we like, having our own wine room gives us the ability to buy in bulk. The opportunity to protect the quality of the wine is important to wine lovers and collectors. A dedicated wine room allows you to do this by keeping the temperature consistent.

While home gyms are an obvious investment in one's health, I also find them to be an investment in time efficiency. A home gym never closes, so you can get in a work out whenever it fits your schedule. Customizing your home gym allows you the ability to select equipment that is specific to your fitness goals, interests, and preferences.

At Home With

Jennifer Ferrell of Riverside Designers By day, Jennifer Ferrell of Riverside Designers brings together Lowcountry homeowner’s dream interiors. By night, she’s making memories with her family in their carefully designed home with unique touches that make the space functional.

Story by Alli Steinke • Photos by Julia Lynn


1 Jennifer has found in recent years clients are straying away from formal dining rooms, however, she wanted to maintain a separate space that could be used for dinner parties and holidays, as well as casual family meals. In the dining room, Jennifer played with scale, texture, and color to bring together a space that would draw people in.

2 The wet bar is Jennifer's one-stop shop for all things beverage and

entertaining. This space offers everything needed from morning coffee to evening cocktails. The family’s beverage center, as they like to call it, truly has it all; ice, a beverage fridge, a second dishwasher, a trash/ recycling rollout, and loads of storage.

3 In the living room, art was the main focus. Jennifer didn’t want to draw

attention to the television but instead highlight the art. And to do so in a way that still felt like a comfortable living space for her family. She kept the original wood mantel, marble surround, and elegant mouldings but added a contemporary touch with the furnishings and color palette.

Crafted with Love Meaghan Jackson of Yankee WoodWorks crafts a variety of custom wood pieces for Lowcountry homeowners.

The Craftswoman Meaghan has always enjoyed crafting. She finds immense pride in her ability to envision a custom piece fitting in that particular space. Her journey to opening Yankee WoodWorks began about five years ago after her youngest child was born. She needed a new dining table but couldn’t find anything that fit her taste and needs; with the help of her tools, she built her new table with a wooden base and tile and epoxy top. After encouragement from her family and friends, Meaghan decided it was time to start her business to bring other people custom pieces that would fit their style and space the way her new table fit hers.

Her Process with a vision. It’s always helpful to at least have some idea of what you’re looking for when you start a project. Once Meaghan and her client are on the same page, she begins planning what materials and tools are needed to complete her client’s request. To build the product, Meaghan uses a combination of drills, saws, and glue. Based on the client’s ideas, she’ll use a variety of finishes. When she’s creating something on her own, Meaghan likes to let the wood guide her. “It will let me know what it wants

it to be,” she notes. The end result could be custom made furniture, live edge charcuterie and cutting boards, built-ins, or a laser engraved piece.

Southern Sustainability These days, there is no need for anything to go to waste. Check out how some of these locals prevent waste with these sustainable alternatives.

No Tree Left Behind material for new and creative ideas, creating an eco-friendly woodworking process. Each artisan has a different style and approach to their projects but one thing is for certain, moisture resistant materials are best for Charleston’s humid weather and proximity to the sea. Wood, when properly maintained, can last a lifetime despite the Lowcountry’s weather conditions. Will recommends coating your piece with a seal to avoid water stains or cracking.

For more information, call Artisan Woodworking at (843) 247-3178.

Local artisan and woodworker, Will Witherspoon of Artisan Woodworking, makes sure to sustainably source as many materials as possible, trying his best to source wood from suppliers with existing products in their showroom. Will chooses materials that are readily available and already sourced from its origin. He also supports local companies instead of ordering from a mass corporation. After each project, Will saves every bit of scrap

Growing Green

Story by Micaela Arnett • Photography by Ebony Ellis

Shipping containers carry a variety of functions that many people don’t think of; pools, pool houses, storage, and even greenhouses. Containers are water tight, insulated, and carefully inspected to ensure top quality for. In addition to insulation panels, heating and air units are available to maintain a consistent temperature and reduce energy loss. Because the Lowcountry is considered Coastal Plain, leafy greens are difficult to grow naturally here. How could an old shipping container solve this problem? Vertical Roots, operating the largest hydroponic container system in the country

at Tiger Corner Farms, teamed up with Carolina Mobile Storage to create a series of mobile greenhouses equipped with hydroponic systems for controlled growth. Carolina Mobile Storage’s ability to modify their containers gives customers endless options for customization. Through the use of alternative use of shipping containers and hydroponics (growing plants without soil), Tiger Corner Farms has been able to consistently produce an abundance of leafy greens for locals to bring to their own homes; or to grow on their own land with their own shipping containers.

How to Style Built-In Shelves Tiffany Miller of Home Etiquette gives five tips on how to style your shelves to ensure they don’t compete with the ambiance and experience of your home.


White Space


Color Palette


Do NOT Do One Shelf At a Time

Before you begin, think about white space. Start with a blank space to make sure the built-ins work together as a whole.

It’s crucial to have a color palette. This is key to making your home look pulled together and cohesive.

Story by Alli Steinke • Portrait by Leah Treiber • Photo by Nick Cann

You need to consider the entire space to create a consistent yet interesting and eye-catching space. Shapes and sizes of all items need to come together as a whole.




Add the Pretty

Be sure to gather a good mix of items in different sizes, height, and textures before you begin. You want the built-ins to feel interesting and full of life.

Make sure you love the items throughout the shelves. Add in wood elements and mix ceramics, metals, etc. to give it an effortlessly curated look. For more information, call Home Etiquette at (843) 818-3232 or visit

Let's Talk Surfaces There are so many things to consider when deciding on countertops for your home from the finish to the edges and the surface itself. Here’s a breakdown on some different terms to become familiar with.


A slab is a large piece of stone or quartz from which the countertops will be cut. The number of square feet and ability to match seams affects the number of slabs a project may need.


A fabricator goes to your home to template or measure the cabinet countertops for a selected stone or quartz installation. After carefully measuring they know, by using a laser or template material, how each surface piece is to be cut. It accurately provides exact square footage used to create a total price for material, fabrication, and installation.


A stone wholesaler has thousands of slabs stored in a warehouse to peruse. A homeowner typically chooses a slab to be cut and installed.

78 • CH+D • Winter 2022

Waterfall Edge

When countertops have a waterfall edge, the material runs vertically down the cabinets to the floor as a solid piece. The fabricator “bookmatches” the horizontal portion of the countertop using a mitered cut with the vertical surface so that the two adjoining surfaces mirror each other, like an open book.

Honed Finish

When a countertop has a honed finish, the gloss of the stone is removed for a matte look. This reduces the reflection of overhead lighting and provides an organic, raw look.


Countertop installation occurs when the surfaces are placed and secured to the cabinetry in your home. The install work includes adhering the sink and cutting holes for plumbing fixtures.

Building Blocks



Why did you want to become a custom home builder? I went to school for civil engineering because I love architecture. My dad was a custom home builder and I have the entrepreneurial spirit in me as well. It seemed very natural to me to pursue custom home building.

What makes this particular project unique? This particular project is more of a classic Charleston home with great design. Most homes we have the opportunity to build are more of a modern coastal style so this was a fun change for us.

How long did this project take to complete? Is that typical for a project of this scope? This home took 12 months to complete. This was quicker than normal which we credit to the homeowner and designer being very involved; we had a great team. Homes this size and magnitude usually take 16-18 months to complete.

What advice do you have for homeowners looking to start the build or remodel process? It is always a great idea to choose your builder before you start the design process. The builder then has the opportunity to know the plans as intimately as the homeowners when the bid process begins.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job? The completed project is the most rewarding; to be able to step back and see what your team’s hands have made.

Architects + Archetypes


David Hill I N N OVA A RC H I T E CT U R E

What makes this home unique from your other projects? It’s a house with two identities: a retreat for my clients that had to check a lot of boxes, in terms of how they wanted to use and enjoy this unique beach house, and a functional, profitable, and sustainable rental unit for all kinds of different potential users.

How did you design this home to be sustainable? In addition to energy, water, and other utility savings from the geothermal system, we carefully considered lighting, appliances, water heaters, and every other system in the house to maximize efficiency. We also selected the best doors and windows along with a very strong structural system that provided enhanced performance in terms of strength, thermal insulation, and noise control.

How is designing a beachfront home different from other homes? There is a different flow to the lifestyle of a beach house; how people gather. Those things need to be thoughtfully incorporated along with the client’s budget, hopes, and dreams. Beach homes are reinforced structurally and elevated as required to protect it from flooding and high winds in storms.

You’re both a builder and an architect, correct? Talk about the benefits that offers potential clients. I was both a builder and an architect, but transitioned out of construction a couple years ago, not too long after finishing this home. Having a builder and an architect on board gives many advantages such as cost control from the very beginning. I work with a builder early on in the process; they start developing a preliminary budget and suggest some building materials and approaches that might fit best with the design as it develops.

Inspired Interiors



What inspired you to pursue a career in interior design?

Ever since I was a little girl I always moved my room around and painted it. My mom would come home sometimes to the whole house rearranged. When it was time to go off to college it was obvious what I was going to major in.

How do you marry your own style with a client's wants for a space? When working with a client I really don’t marry my own style into their space. My job as a designer is to make their home a reflection of them. I laugh and tell them I am the bumper pads that keep them in the right lane.

Why is it beneficial for homeowners to work with an interior designer? It is so beneficial for homeowners to work with a designer. My job is to do all the leg work and research. This can be very overwhelming for a lot of people. Being in the industry for over 25 years, I can take all the heartache and frustration out.

What is the most challenging aspect of a project? Challenges in some projects are making financial choices. I try to advise my clients where to put their money and then do the project in phases; rather than make rash or regrettable decisions.

What are your favorite elements in this home? Some of my favorite elements of this project are the use of color and mixing patterns with the wallpaper choices. My client has very unique pieces that we incorporated and then we created new ones to add to their collection. We designed a coffee table that was custom built for her living room that fit perfectly and can take the wear and tear from grandchildren, of course adults too!

Storage Tips from ShelfGenie

The Setting A cluttered kitchen. The mess of drawers, disorganized containers, and leaning stacks of pots and pans make a recipe for overwhelming chaos and inefficient use of one of the most lived in rooms in the home. Sound a little too familiar?

The Problem Minimal drawer and cabinet storage, zero counter space, and poor accessibility seem to be standard problems with most kitchens looking to declutter and reorganize. Unfortunately these challenges are unavoidable if you use your kitchen even semi-regularly. Kitchens surely seem like a mess magnet! A point of concern for homeowners who enjoy spending time in their kitchen is whether or not this storage solution can fit everything, from the counter to the cabinets without hassle. How could anyone possibly store everything they need when one meal requires a plethora of gadgets? While putting things away is the name of the organization game, efficiency and accessibility are the keys to maximization. It's as important to have easy access to these culinary tools as it is to optimize the space you store them in.

Honoring Charleston's History Pro on the go Will Smith of Lowcountry Iron and Woodworks let's us take a peek into the life of a custom iron and woodworker.




Will begins his day by loading up his materials and consulting with his crew before heading off to the first job site of the day.

The crane arrives and straps are attached to lift the iron spiral staircase over the entire house from the street to secure on the back sundeck.



Will touches base at another job site he started a few days prior to check on progress and touch up a wrought iron door and its handrails with industrial grade, oil based paint in the popular “Charleston Green” color.

At the first job site on Daniel Island, a custom spiral staircase is getting installed on the third floor of a classic Charleston style home.

Finishing touches are welded into place and the crane is cut loose and on to the next job.


The team arrives at job two of the day in Mt. Pleasant. This time to install structural supporting iron flitch plates and columns to support a cantilevered front deck. Will gets many requests from architects and builders for structural steel.

4:00pm After a long day of building, the team heads back to their shop in North, South Carolina near Orangeburg to finish a day’s work on a piece of custom metal artwork. It is going to be a surprise for his daughters and wife. His team gladly helped complete the last, most important project of the day.

1:00pm After lunch, it is time to meet the next homeowner for a one-on-one consultation. This family was looking for an iron fence and gate to be installed; something that mimicked the historic gates often seen downtown.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives

What would you say to a homeowner considering outdoor lights?

It’s not just about the accent, it’s a safety aspect as well. A combination of the beauty of accent lighting and the safety and security your family has knowing they are not being targeted [by burglars who are typically attracted to darkness]. With Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, it always looks like somebody is home. All of our systems are LED and very energy efficient. You could run your lights all day and night and you won’t see but a dollar increase in your power bill. Plus you’ll save some money on the back end because you don’t have to run your porch lights [and other exterior lighting not meant for extended illumination].

Talk about the process of buying stone countertops.

Our showroom houses over 130 different bundles of quartz, granite, dolomite, quartzite, and marble. Once you select your surface we come to your home to template the kitchen, bathroom vanities, outdoor kitchen, fireplace, or other application. The job is then pushed to production for our expert cutting, utilizing the fewest seams, while matching veining to continue the flow of the product. Our expert installation team then installs your product using the latest technology and seals it, We polish the edges requested by the customer.

Why do architects and builders have siding encapsulated?

We receive the siding from the local lumber yard. Once the material is ready to be coated and it’s been staged, we moisture check all of the material to make sure it is dry enough to be fully encapsulated. Once moisture is checked, the material runs through a machine and goes through a series of brushes that push the paint or stain deeply into the material. Once it goes through the machine it is placed on drying racks for at least 24 hours and allowed to dry naturally, which allows coating to penetrate deep into the material stabilizing, the material on all sides. Once dry, it is rebundled and shipped back to the lumberyard and off to its final destination or jobsite and installed for many years of low maintenance and enjoyment for the homeowner.

How do your products hold up in a climate like Charleston?

We have a variety of garden ornamentation that we offer from aluminum garden furniture to lead statuary and fountains; we have some bronze sundials and we also have cast stone ornaments which are fountains, finials, and statues. All of our garden furniture is cast aluminum and is heavy. People will mistake it for being iron, but with aluminum there is no rust occurring. For example, one of our more popular garden chairs is 25 pounds. That is a good hefty weight for a chair which is also going to help with windy situations. You won’t lose your chairs and they will pretty much stay planted. The aluminum is finished with a primer as well as a paint and a top coating of glaze and lacquer so those layers are enough to protect from the salt air.

Out of the Closet

Universal Marble and Granite now exclusively operates using the newest innovation in seam setting technology to erase the look of unwanted lines where the slabs meet upon installation. Universal Marble and Granite is able to smooth marble and granite edges seamlessly every time with a better grip than standard machines. Their steam setter removes 80 percent of the seam material to get a better epoxy bond, then finely polishes about a quarter of an inch away from the surface to create an invisible seam and the grand illusion of one large piece of stone.

PROJECT FILES Out of the Ordinary These homeowners envisioned a truly unique pool in both size and style.

Story by Mary Marshall • Provided by Blue Haven Pools


lmost every Lowcountry resident has most likely daydreamed of diving into a refreshing backyard pool and looking out onto the marsh on one of the many scorching hot days when you just can’t escape the heat. Maybe your daydream includes family and friends laughing and splashing around, creating memories that will last a lifetime. Lowcountry pool professionals were able to make this dream a reality for these Daniel Island homeowners. Nestled into a marshfront property on the island is what Brian Peppin of Blue Haven Pools & Spas describes as the “rolex of pools,” which he had the pleasure of seeing through from start to finish. Designing the perfect pool for a client is no quick process. First, the Blue Haven designer develops a relationship with the clients to establish exactly what it is that they want and desire out of their backyard project. “They wanted something bold and sexy, modern with clean lines, and something out of the

ordinary,” says Brian. The client’s vision of this luxurious entertainment bringing family and friends together was inspiring to the Blue Haven team. They set out to create something spectacular. This particular property has beautiful views and expansive space. It was important to the team that the renovation didn’t interfere with the stunning natural surroundings, but rather to enhance the beautiful environment of the backyard. A vanishing edge was installed to allow your eyes to keep looking beyond the pool to the Lowcountry waterfront view. Still, when the attention is brought back to the pool it is easy to be struck by how magnificent the project is, and how both areas complement each other without competition. “This pool project is completely one of a kind, like no other pool around,” notes Brian. It is over 59 feet long with the vanishing edge spanning about 80 feet long. It’s been

Of course obstacles are bound to arise and this project was no exception. The main obstacle during this specific process was a lack of space on the property. The Blue Haven team had to demolish existing raised patios to make room for the new pool. Transporting the materials to the secluded backyard was a

Masterful Collaboration

A custom home builder and local building material supply company collaborated on this project to give these homeowners a well-constructed, durable Lowcountry dwelling.


he design process is crucial when beginning a custom home build. During this process, custom home builder Roy Mahshie of Mahshie Custom Homes worked with his team to determine center points for can lights, supply registers, speakers, etc.; essentially anything that was going to be seen once the sheetrock was put up. They also examined the reflective ceiling and trim details to determine layouts. This in turn dictated the layout of the floor joist, rough-in materials, and anything else that prohibited them from getting a flawless home layout. “Symmetry is very important to us, so proper planning is critical before we start building,” Roy says.

112 • CH+D • Winter 2022

Since each home is custom, every experience is different. The selections Roy makes change, finishes are different, and styles are unique to each homeowner’s lifestyle. However there is one constant that Roy brings to each build: quality. “Quality is what all of my homeowners are looking for and that is what they get,” he notes. Typically, a custom home like this one takes between 14-16 months to complete. In this instance, the project began in 2020, a time with long lead times for products and materials needed to complete the project, so it took 18 months, however, Roy credits a great team of material suppliers for overcoming those challenges. “Every home presents its

own set of challenges,” Roy begins. “Having great material suppliers such as Buck Lumber, and highly talented trade professionals working together makes navigating through them possible.” Roy also notes that he’s very transparent on his expectations and level of perfection he demands on his homes so trade professionals he works with know what they’re getting into. Many of those professionals Roy works with, such as Buck Lumber, have been working with him for over 10 years. “I have spent a great deal of time putting together a team that shares a common goal: to give it our best in order to be the best,” he adds. Joel Gardner with Buck Lumber speaks on Roy's dedication to building the highest quality homes. “The details that are implemented into these homes show you how much Roy values his company,” he says. “With this process, it's amazing how much you can learn about building a home. I’ve been very fortunate being able to work on homes like this with Roy.” Building a custom home is not for the faint of heart. It’s a long process and having trust between the homeowner and builder is the key to a successful build. “Things in the construction industry change every day, even more so these days,” Roy explains. “Knowing your builder is looking after you should never be a concern and having an open line of communication is key on both parts.” ✴ For more information on the custom home build, call Mahshie Custom Homes at (843) 200-8253 or visit For more information on the siding, call Buck Lumber & Building Supply at (843) 795-0150 or visit

One Home at a Time

Story by Alli Steinke • Photography by Shallah Dozier

This Lowcountry couple flipped their first home and started their business at the same time.


early six years ago, Katelyn Irizarry of Polished Renovations & Design purchased her first home and started dating her future husband Kyle. The two embarked on the renovation process together and brought on Kyle’s friend Ben to help with carpentry and build projects. The group worked so well together they began dreaming up their future business and were ready to start concentrating on custom work. When the three got together, Kyle recently purchased a home so they were in the process of renovating two homes at once, all while trying to get their business off the ground.

Capehouse, the home that Kyle purchased, would become not only the couple’s first project but also their first home as a married couple. “Renovating houses is a passion and it’s such an awesome way to express our creativity,” Katelyn begins. “It’s so much fun, and patience-testing.” As the couple began tackling the Capehouse project, they knew it wouldn’t be their forever home, but a home they’d be in for a while. It was designed with casual living in mind.

116 • CH+D • Winter 2022

Both Katelyn and Kyle had specific things they wanted in this home; Katelyn an antique brick herringbone vent hood and Kyle cypress shutters. They worked with it and made it up as they went. They got creative with their ideas which they still do today, just with more planning and guidelines involved. The Capehouse project was just the beginning for the Irizarrys. “We learned so much doing everything by hand,” Katelyn explains. “While we understand the value of hiring someone else to do the fine custom finishings, we would never have had such a good understanding if we didn’t ever do it ourselves.” When they begin a project now, they start with an on-site consultation where they walk the property with their client and talk about their ideas for the project. They ask for inspiration photos and probe for information about how they live so they can incorporate that into the plans. After the first site visit, if there is drafting or structural work

involved, the Irizarrys and their new general contractor and project manager Bradley head back to the property to gather all necessary information to formulate a plan of attack. If structural work is not involved, all information is gathered during the first meeting. Once the plans are together, the PRD team takes a few weeks to develop a detailed design package which includes the scope of work, purchase list, and 3D renderings. During that time, their estimator is looking at those documents to turn them into a proper estimate. Next, it’s time to present the client with the proposal. “They are presented with an entire project package,” Katelyn adds. “We work through any adjustments needed, and once a contract is signed, we select a start date and move onto the design phase where we get to do the fun things like fixtures and finishes.”

mildew issues, an old roof, an awkward layout, an outdoor laundry room, and green turf in one of the rooms were just some of the challenges they had to overcome. However, they were able to visualize the possibilities and didn’t let the challenge deter them from building a stunning home which included German smear brickwork, shiplap wainscoting, a 10-ft kitchen island, and so many other unique features they loved. The Irizarrys have sold Capehouse and are now embarking on a new home journey which also includes a design studio for their team. Though they loved Capehouse, they have now found their forever home. ✴ For more information, call Polished Renovations & Design at (843) 4758856 or visit

Big, Bold, and Beautiful With a desire to find bold vintage rugs in varying sizes for her home on Wadmalaw Island, this homeowner contacted Zuma to assist in sourcing authentic products.


owcountry homeowner Hailey was looking for unique vintage rugs with interesting designs and unusual colors for spaces throughout her home. With specific sizes and designs in mind, Hailey called upon the team at Zuma to source the rugs for her home. Hailey’s initial question for Elyse and Zuhal, owners of Zuma, was if they preview the home and sample rugs in order to see if they fit for the spaces. Luckily for her, this is common practice at Zuma. “We work with interior designers on a daily basis and love helping them find rugs for their projects,” Elyse says. “Hailey does her own design

Regular cleaning is necessary to ensure they last a long time. “We recommend not using a beater vacuum but using a floor setting instead to clean and maintain the rugs,” Elyse explains. “Professional cleaning is great every few years.” Elyse also notes that Zuma has the capability to repair damaged rugs. If Hailey hadn’t been able to find everything she needed from the current inventory, Elyse and Zuhal have the ability to work with their team members in Turkey to find the perfect fit and have it shipped to their warehouse in Mt. Pleasant. “We have an amazing team we work closely with in Turkey,” Elyse adds. “They are constantly sourcing for us when we aren’t there and we talk to them almost daily.” With open communication and a distinct design direction, Hailey found truly special and one-ofa-kind vintage rugs to complete her Wadmalaw Island home. ✴ For more information, visit

Rental Property Charm Moving with comfort and ease throughout the space was of utmost importance when designing the cabinetry for this Edisto Beach rental property.


his rental property on Edisto Beach was an investment for the sisters who purchased it. As realtors they had a pretty good idea of what they were looking for when it came to design, but they knew they couldn’t do it on their own. Their builder and friend Jonathan Ghant of Jonathan Ghant Homes + Construction introduced the pair to the team at Mount Pleasant Kitchen and Bath and the project took off. “We start with an overall description of the feel the owners want,” begins Peter Munzer, owner of Mount Pleasant Kitchen and Bath. “We talk about how they live, how they entertain, how many

cabinet options including color and style. This step also includes appliance selection. “We build a kitchen around the particular equipment they want to cook on,” Peter explains. “Our design creates zones for the owners; we want everyone to feel comfortable so they can move with ease in a space.” In this particular home, budget was a big concern since it was an investment property. “We wanted it to look fantastic on a budget,” Peter recalls. In order to achieve this, the team looked at the multiple levels of cabinetry Mount Pleasant Kitchen and Bath offers. They have options that are more economical without compromising quality. In addition to selecting those more economical options, they also kept accessories and internal storage solutions to a minimum. “We were careful on how we designed the cabinetry,” Peter adds. Working on a budget didn’t hinder these sisters from getting the cabinetry they needed for their rental home to be functional and stylish. Color was incorporated along with multiple countertop types and combo vanities which are built as one unit. This Edisto Beach rental is available through Atwood Vacations & Realty and offers guests a custom design that will be functional for family meals throughout their visit. ✴ For more information, call Mount Pleasant Kitchen and Bath at (843) 901-2506 or visit

Shut Out The Storm A home without hurricane protection is vulnerable to damage from windborne debris.


ithout hurricane impact rated shutters, homeowners run the risk of avoidable wind damage when a storm comes through. This home has hurricane protection installed in the form of several colonial and Bahama shutters along the front and sides and motorized rolldowns on the back porch, as well as accordions in selected areas around the house. Windward Shutters has been protecting homes in the Lowcountry against hurricane damage since 1996 and this Mt. Pleasant project was no different. Their goal of service is to fortify your home’s existing structure

by reinforcing areas vulnerable to severe weather conditions. Take care of the outside of your home like you do the inside and install shutters to serve as a buffer between your home’s exterior and the elements. For these Mt. Pleasant homeowners, this was their first time purchasing shutters. Tim Smith of Windward Shutters, was able to consult and draft a design that would ensure structural safety as well as meet the style requests of the owners. Tim knows for certain, “Shutters will always elevate the look of your home." Upon his professional recommendation, he suggests using

a paint color that contrasts with the home’s exterior in order to really make it pop. The shutters featured on the front porch are painted a classic red whereas the accordion shutters and the motorized rolldowns are white to seamlessly blend into the white trim for optimum beauty. During the design process, it is important the plan meets the homeowners’ aesthetic as well as their practical needs for safety. “The initial meeting with the homeowners is always the most important so they can carefully consider which products will best fit each and every

window and door.” This is in order to maximize the home’s fortification while also complementing the home’s historic Charleston architecture. Tim mentions this home lends itself perfectly to exterior shutters because of its traditional layout. Homes of this design tend to look bare without shutters. Classic colonial shutters were installed on French double doors on the front porch, “making it even more welcoming” he says. This Southern home features ample porch living space to enjoy the seasonal views of the ever changing intracoastal waterway marsh on

which it sits. This project was finished earlier than planned with minimal setbacks. Two openings presented clearance issues so the team consulted with the homeowners and discussed their alternative options. The solution was fast and simple, to choose a different shutter for the back, and keep the project right on time. ✴ For more information, call Windward Shutters at (843) 881-6262 or visit

Good Bones A strong foundation makes for a sturdy home. See how 84 Lumber and Fox Creek Builders made it possible for these new Charleston homeowners.


n a few short months this Mt. Pleasant family won’t have the only home on the block. Builder Fox Creek Homes has plans to further develop the street with help from local building material supplier 84 Lumber. This brand new home features quality framing materials from 84 Lumber as well as JeldWen Siteline windows and a solid mahogany wood front door. Upon entry the eye is drawn up to the golden chandelier and vaulted white cedar poplar ceiling. Golden light fixtures from Charleston Lighting and Interiors were installed throughout the home for cohesive warmth.

130 • CH+D • Winter 2022

The living room features a custom shiplap wall and wooden mantle constructed from a salvaged piece of wood found in the homeowner’s home town of Hershey, PA. This personal element adds a unique and meaningful angle to the overall design. The builders worked with Jilco Kitchen and Bath to provide the kitchen cabinets and metallic hardware for this open concept layout. The cabinetry and backsplash tile pair beautifully with the wood heavy accents in the living room and entryway. Lighting was also important to these

homeowners who work from home. All lighting fixtures follow the same gold concept which warms the space for an ideal work environment. Jack Holt of 84 Lumber, recalls how a lot of recent project plans this season had become more of a challenge than before. The home building industry certainly has felt the effects the pandemic had on the global supply chain, but luckily for 84 Lumber, providing builders with supplies and material is their business. Most job material is available to be delivered and worked with as soon as ground breaks. At times, special

orders need to be carefully placed for custom jobs which require more attention to detail. “You have to make sure all of the details are correct before ordering to avoid any challenges in the installation project.” Because of the little trouble it took to source this project’s materials, the job was completed on time. According to the homeowner, there was only one change order for the entire building process which was to add a frosted metal barn door to an upstairs bedroom creating a semiprivate office space with natural light. This home also features a balcony with a porch swing off of the master

bedroom and a grand closet room attached to a laundry room for easy access. The homeowner, jokes her closet is her 'cloffice', a closet and an office featuring a marble top vanity that doubles as a computer desk. From start to finish, homeowners can expect the bones of their new home to last the test of time with expertise from the building suppliers at 84 Lumber. Jack says the excitement and satisfaction of seeing a job well done never dulls and this home was one of his favorites. ✴ For more information, call 84 Lumber at (843) 832-8584 or visit

A Modern Twist on Traditional Style This downtown project is one of five remodels on Sheppard Street


here was a sense of urgency when completing this five-part project on historic Sheppard Street. Prior to the renovation, interstate drivers were greeted with rotten wood and caution tape as they approached King Street. Builder Travis Arnett of Arnett Custom Homes explains how “working with the challenges of historic homes present an exciting opportunity to make something even more unique and expose its history through modern 21st century design." Vacant and unsafe, deemed by the City of Charleston, neither residential nor commercial building plans could be made considering the existing conditions. Although most of the house had to be replaced, discoveries during demolition surprised the builders with an additional opportunity to get creative. “Once hidden, historical architecture was discovered and implemented into the design layout about halfway through,” Travis mentions. Builders tore through layers

of walls exposing fine detail and salvaging pieces of the original wood which was refinished and used to create the solid beams along the vaulted ceiling. From top to bottom, this custom renovation includes charming and modern updates while still maintaining the old Charleston feel. “One thing I like [about this project] is that these are highly visible through the crosstown that we basically took old run down buildings and made them brand new and useful," says Garth Premak of Maner Builder Supply. Wood from the home's original structure was repurposed and used to create solid beams which allowed Arnett Custom Homes to vault the ceiling instead of creating a traditional flat ceiling. The team reframed an entire wall and nearly half of the heart pine floor with the help of Elegant Flooring. A benefit of heart pine is that it darkens with time, much like the original flooring would have. Garth explains how you can tell the difference between old and new wood flooring by the

width of the panels, if the color doesn’t give it away. Historically, boards were cut much thinner than they are now and tend to have a red/orange/brown look to them as compared to the light yellow beige of new pine. The original interior trim was refinished and double primed with “few blemishes and defects, something hard to come by” Travis says. The hallway features solid core shaker doors installed by Maner Builder Supply, which Travis explains were selected for the “style, quality, and durability of a solid wood door.” This is just one example of how this team makes an effort to preserve historical integrity during a remodel with modern adaptations. The kitchen features marble countertops installed by Zimpel Granite and Marble and backsplash by Melcer Tile. In one of the three bedrooms, Maner installed built-in bunk beds and desks to accompany the built-in

Nearly torn down to the foundation, 90 Sheppard Street presented challenges that changed the course of the design plan. Originally, Arnett was to install a flat ceiling but Garth recalls about halfway through the project deciding to repurpose the home’s salvaged wood to serve as the beams for a vaulted ceiling, a unique and historical architectural element. A new pavilion in the outdoor common area was built to serve as a gathering place for guests. All four homes are now available for short term staycations listed on AirBnB.✴ For more information, contact Maner Builder Supply at (843) 5520242 or visit Arnett Custom Homes at (843) 271-8668 or visit

Cultivated Outdoor Oasis

This Lowcountry homeowner bought a home in the same neighborhood he grew up in and since his family is still in the area, knew he needed to create an outdoor space for everyone to enjoy.


t probably gets redundant hearing people say this all the time, but life in the Lowcountry means enjoying our outdoor spaces nearly year round. For Randall Carter, he knew buying a home in the same neighborhood he grew up in meant lots of gatherings were going to be held at his home, so he wanted to take advantage of the wonderful weather we experience and create an outdoor space everyone would use. Randall is the general manager and lead designer at Palm Casual, a family owned and operated outdoor furniture store; he knew it was crucial to invest in quality pieces that could withstand kids, dogs, and other family members. Randall worked with his interior

136 • CH+D • Winter 2022

designer and pool designer to make sure all the items he selected would flow together. “All of the furniture that we picked were very carefully chosen specifically for this house,” Randall notes. “We wanted to ensure this would be a space we were going to be able to use for a long time.” The assistant manager at Palm Casual was very involved in helping Randall and his wife, Jessica get the best products for their home. “Working at and running the store can sometimes be challenging to then come home and work on your own project,” Randall notes. “Having Jake MacLean, the assistant manager at Palm Casual, on board was big because he was helping guide us and reassure our choices.”

Randall Carter of Palm Casual

As they were selecting pieces, color scheme was a big consideration. Randall was looking for something classic that wouldn’t go out of style. They also wanted to incorporate a lot of different texture. In their home, teak, wicker, and cast aluminum were all paired together in the varying outdoor spaces creating a different dynamic for each area. Palm Casual’s outdoor furniture is made of 100 percent resin wicker and has an aluminum framing so it doesn’t rust over time. The cushions are made of Sunbrella so they can be cleaned with bleach. Palm Casual also offers a lifetime service warranty so if cushions need to be restuffed, or wicker needs to be repaired, the Palm Casual team will come back out and help restore the piece. There are different spaces set up throughout the yard. Sling teak loungers were used in the sunning area and composite adirondacks on the sun ledge of the pool which are very low maintenance. On the paver patio, an outdoor dining set was placed for the kids to come out and snack after school. Deep seating is offered in the middle of the yard with a cozy sofa and chairs. Finally, in the back corner there is the firepit area with a curved sofa and adirondacks. Randall and his wife also have what they call their "four seasons" room which leads to the backyard. Palm Casual’s wicker collection is used in this area creating a comfy, indoor/outdoor environment where the family lounges and entertains frequently. “We wanted to be able to sit in the yard and watch the kids from wherever we are,” Randall notes. “We achieved that and with this being the first backyard project we’ve done on our own from start to finish is so rewarding.” ✴

Luxury Living When these Kiawah Island residents built their beachfront dream home they wanted the benefits of the latest technology to blend seamlessly into their lifestyle, so they enlisted the help of home audio professionals.


his beachfront home on Kiawah Island is stunning from the moment you walk through the doors. They partnered with Russ Pritchard and his team at The Audio Warehouse to elevate the way they live. An incredible media room is just off the kitchen. Vast windows are covered with Lutron Shades which paired with Lutron Home Works lighting control allow the homeowners to create day and night scenes for entertaining, sports, and movie time. This space was designed so that the audio/visual elements were more discrete.

The Bowers and Wilkins high performance speakers are painted to disappear in the ceiling, and the Bowers and Wilkins Subwoofer is built into the custom cabinet and vents out on the side. Lutron Warm Dim LED fixtures and tape at the bar created a fun feel to the space. Everything in the space is easy to control with the Savant Remote which also gives access to shades and lights for an easy user experience. The large, open living room has multiple sitting groups and uses. This space also uses Lutron’s Warm Dim Adjustable LED fixtures that produce bright light for standard use

and warm entertaining spaces in the evening. These adjustable fixtures allow light to be aimed where needed. “In this case we are able to provide proper lighting on the dining table without traditional overhead lighting while enjoying the openness and ambiance of the second floor dome,” explains Russ. “This home was one of the first Beta programs to use Lutron’s newest Eco Lighting System which allows us to create multiple groupings with architectural downlights for different uses compared to traditional lighting which can only be grouped by the way it was wired during construction.”

Russ points out one advantage of addressable lighting is the ability to rearrange light groupings after you’ve lived in the space. In this home, trimless fixtures were used in many of the public spaces to maintain a clean ceiling; these fixtures are also growing in popularity due to their minimalistic aesthetic. Once again, Lutron shades are used to manage the glare and solar effects of the sunrise in the mornings and provide privacy in the evenings. Both floors in this home use automated shades to protect areas with high sun exposure from solar fade. Finally, the entertainment in the living area is

provided by flush mounted Bowers and Wilkens high quality ceiling speakers painted to match the ceiling along with the Sony 65” flat screen over the fireplace. As we move into the master bath, a unique feature was presented to the Audio Warehouse team. “Managing both light and privacy with a mirror floating in front of the window. This was one of my favorite window treatments in the home,” Russ recalls. “The window casings were customized to hide the shades in pockets when not in use with the ability to be lowered behind the mirror at each vanity when privacy or glare were an issue.” CH+D • Winter 2022 • 139


Russ and his team installed a Lutron Home Works Lighting system throughout the home allowing them to replace banks of switches with single gang keypads with the light’s name engraved on the buttons along with back lighting for easy visibility day or night. The keypads are located in convenient locations throughout the home. They allow control of both groups, sometimes referred to as scenes as well as individual lights,” Russ says. It’s common to always have a favorite setting for multiple lights in a space to create the desired feel. This can be saved to a single button for easy operation.

140 • CH+D • Winter 2022

Global control was provided throughout the home with the Savant touch screens located in several key locations throughout the home. “From these locations you can view any of the outdoor security cameras, select and play any selection of music to one room or create groups of rooms on the fly,” Russ explains. “You manage lighting scenes for multiple rooms or access global control to launch popular scenes such as ‘Entertain’ which might turn on lights in various areas at predetermined levels and start your favorite jazz playlists as your dinner guests arrive.” Savant’s power is limitless; it even provides remote access and control of all lights, shades, and entertainment

systems in case you forgot to turn something off. If this all sounds complicated to use, Russ insists the system is very easy to use, stating if you can use an iPhone, you already know how to operate the system.

Mueller, big names in the Texas barbecue scene, to help them open. “A lot goes into launching a restaurant, so I learned a great deal about all that heavy lifting.” After working with Aaron and LeAnn, John was invited to Charleston to participate in a barbecue and bourbon trip. “I was really blown away by the community and how much people loved food here,” he proclaims. “It seemed like such a welcoming and fun place to live, not to mention the great weather, and I thought it was time for a change so I decided to take the leap.” Without the help from his Lewis Barbecue partners, John wouldn’t have the success he’s had. Their contributions made the process easier and helped him build the restaurant and staff it with people who understood John’s vision. “It’s so rewarding to see how smoothly it operates now. I’m really proud of what we created.” Over the years, Lewis Barbecue has become known for their brisket.

is starting with a really high quality product and giving it plenty of time to smoke.” In the last couple of years, John has tested the waters with other concepts. “At the end of the day, I like to cook what I like to eat,” he says. Taking that into consideration, John opened JL’s Burgers, inspired by his love of a green chile burger; a delicacy in El Paso and Hatch. Rancho Lewis is inspired by the border food John ate as a kid. “I couldn’t find it here in Charleston so I thought it’d be a great thing to add to the food scene.” Next in John’s restaurant empire is a second location of Lewis Barbecue in Greenville coming in 2022. “Making the decision to launch in another area was a big one, but the Greenville community has been so welcoming.” 

Park and Grove

Downtown Charleston

P Photography by Callie Cranford

ark & Grove, formerly known as The Park Cafe, reopened their new concept during the summer of 2020. Owner Karalee Nielsen Fallert wanted to create a space that was a bit more dramatic and moody. Design elements worked together to create an atmosphere of a chic French bistro or New York cafe. Art also played a huge role in the redesign and is highlighted with wall sconces in one section of the dining room that also features a stunning green grassy wallpaper.

Jackrabbit Filly North Charleston


Photography by Ebony Ellis

hen Corrie and Shuai Wang opened Jackrabbit Filly in the thriving Park Circle neighborhood, it was important that they create a welcoming ambiance that would become a popular neighborhood spot. Park Circle was the perfect place for the Wangs because it was just outside the hubbub of downtown but still very central. Corrie and Shuai gave their restaurant a story by filling it with gifts from employees and regulars along with thrift store finds. These fun finds all pair together for a “grandma’s basement but cooler” vibe; a patron once said to Corrie and she knew they’d gotten the atmosphere just right.

The Kingstide

Daniel Island

A Photography by Ebony Ellis

Lowcountry restaurant design envisioned by Charleston-based designer Cortney Bishop, The Kingstide is Daniel Island’s only waterfront restaurant. Set along the Wando River, the twostory space with lots of windows allows for an abundance of natural light. The Kingstide provides a rustic ambiance with a touch of the coastal charm we know and love in the Lowcountry.

The Longboard Sullivan’s Island


collaboration between Cortney Bishop Design and Beau Clowney Architects resulted in a stunning new Sullivan’s Island eatery, The Longboard. The former pizza joint was transformed into a tropical space, intentionally designed to fit into its surroundings with a mix of island style and traditional Lowcountry architectural charm. Bleached shiplap walls and painted white beams over the main dining room create a bungalow feel in the indoor-outdoor restaurant. A U-shaped bar stands at the center of the dining room and above the bar hangs a deep turquoise Almond longboard that adds to the beachy atmosphere. Custom elements such as the floor tile by Eskayel for Cle Tile and the sapele wood tables by Brooks Custom Woodworks along with lighting fixtures by Allied Maker complement other design elements, and again help bring the beachy ambiance to life.

A QUICK Q&A with John Lewis

Photograph by Callie Cranford

Favorite city in Texas? El Paso

Favorite easy meal to make for yourself? Chile rellenos

Something most people don’t know about you?

What traditional barbecue sauce is your favorite?

Outside of barbecue, burgers, and Mexican cuisine, what other new concept would you like to create?

I was a pastry chef before

Hatch Green Chile Barbecue

I’m a big fan of Detroit-style pizza.

I was a pitmaster.
