I

love fall! Bring on football, the MLB playoffs, boots, and scarves—but let it be known, I can pass on about 90% of the pumpkin spiced things that are out there; a little bit goes a long way. Fall stirs about different emotions and connotations for everybody. For Marine Corps families, like my own, it means it is time for Marine Corps Birthday and all of the celebrations that go with it. Personally, this year’s Birthday Ball will be a bit sweeter because I’ve gained a little extra

MEET + GREET

Modern Spaces After operating a design company for over a decade and seeing what the Charleston market lacks in the way of modern Scandinavian furnishings, Becky Seel Hoppmann and her mother-in-law, Janice Hoppmann, decided it was time to share their love of modern Scandinavian style furniture with local homeowners by opening Hausful.

What services do you provide to homeowners when they shop with Hausful? As soon as a customer enters our shop, they'll find one-onone assistance along with expert advice for any home design conundrums. We offer free in-store design services and have many clients come in with their room dimensions, which is when we grab our grid paper and start sketching layout options and ideas. Another great alternative for shoppers is our gift registry. What are some key features of your product line? Charleston is a first-class city with first-class home furnishing and design shops throughout the area, but one style in particular has been overlooked—modern Scandinavian. We offer a carefully curated selection of home furnishings and hauswares for every room, like tableware, lighting, modern throws and pillows, and much more; all are researched and sourced from close to 20 different countries: Denmark, Finland, Japan, and Canada just to name a few. Each product we source must align with our core values. We ask ourselves if each product is beautiful, useful, and thoughtful.

CH+D • Fall 2017

How did you get started in the furniture business? I grew up in West Ashley, so after studying design in Savannah, Georgia, I knew I wanted to settle back in Charleston. While I owned a successful brand design company for over ten years, I've also had an appreciation for modern design in all fields. In addition, my mentor and mother-in-law, Janice Hoppmann, who has owned multiple modern home furnishing stores throughout her 50 year career, has been invaluable in the inception of this idea of mine. Do you have any advice for homeowners who are looking to update their style? It's easier than you think! We work with many customers who want to transition to a cleaner, more simplified look—that's what Scandinavian design is all about. With functional design, natural materials, and an everyday comfort, this type of furniture is perfect for a Charleston lifestyle. Our furnishings are what we call “classic modern.” There are no sharp, cold lines here. This classic modern style can be easily and seamlessly integrated into just about any décor style. For more information, call Hausful at (843) 203-6420, or visit hausful.com.

HE SAID / SHe SAID

The Ins and Outs of Pool Design Mike Greer and Chantal DeBreceny of Michael Greer Pools face off about custom pool design.

He Said: He Said: I prefer a salt sanitation system. The quality of the water is fantastic, it’s inexpensive to operate, and you only need to add salt once or twice a year. Although some pools do very well with ozone and UV systems, they require a chlorine backup.

He Said: My favorite accessories are all the different automation and apps that can make pool care so easy. Being able to control all the functions of your custom pool with a touch of a button on your smartphone or remote is so convenient. For example, you can turn on your spa, even when you’re sitting in gridlocked Charleston traffic.

He Said: Personally, I prefer a soft blue because it creates a bohemian feel, which is reminiscent of the Bahamas. The plaster finish of the pool determines the water color so we can design it in a way that recreates the water from our client’s favorite destination and bring that aesthetic to their backyard.

She Said: Type of Sanitizing System?

Favorite Pool Accessory?

Pool Water Color?

She Said: Salt sanitation, for sure. Salt systems do their job of sanitizing the pool without the irritation and dryness from traditional chlorine systems. This system also leaves your skin and hair soft and smooth, and helps ease muscle aches and soreness.

She Said: I love fire and water features. These two basic elements create a dramatic and soothing feeling in the evenings and set the tone for both fun and relaxation. Fire bowls, in particular, are easy to operate from a remote and truly enhance the ambiance.

She Said: For me, it depends on the environment and individual pool. I tend to prefer lighter, softer hues with clean lines, but have been astounded by dark, bold water shades as well. It’s as much about the vibes of the house and other surroundings as it is the pool and the water.

Your MONEY'S WORTH

Investing Behind the Scenes When undertaking a remodel or building a new home, costs can add up quickly. It’s easier to lean toward spending more money on what can be seen, like decorative lighting or a mosaic tile, but it is extremely important to invest in what’s behind the scenes as well.

What is the KBRS shower pan system? The KBRS shower pan system goes underneath your tile installation for your indoor and outdoor showers. This entire product line is unique with customizations, durability, and positive side waterproof ing (meaning, trapping the water in so it does not leak out). It is a long lasting, custom, and leak proof system. It can be created in any size or shape to be placed anywhere in or around your home that you might need it.

How long does this product last before it needs refurbishing? When installed properly and according to the installer-friendly process and procedures, KBRS products should last a lifetime. Once installed, you should never see a KBRS product again.

Why should customers invest in this product, and how does it save customers money? The KBRS system is designed to perform for a lifetime and is an investment that can pay out huge dividends over decades. Savings occur purely over the long run because when installed, you have made a smart money buy in prevention. Consumers are avoiding eventual leaks from poorly installed alternative products and options that can cause considerable damage to an individual’s largest personal investment. KBRS products protect you from paying for poor decisions later in life. For more information, call KBRS at (866) 912-3211 or visit kbrsinc.com.

Pictured above is the KBRS shower pan system installed underneath of this extensive mosaic tile work completed by Atlantic Stone.

HIDDEN TREASURE

ARCADIAN

ACCESSORIES Domesticated farming practices and agriculture are deeply rooted in the history and culture of many societies. In America, these practices were started long before European settlers stepped foot onto this land and have been celebrated generation after generation. A great deal of beauty resides in this field and the “farmhouse chic” or “modern rustic” design trend that has swept the nation over the past few years pays homage to this rich history. Mixing antique farmhouse pieces into your own abode adds a level of character and charm that many newly manufactured pieces cannot. From coast to coast, antique stores have tapped into this trend and offer an abundance of options to help ground your trendy space in history.

HOMEWORK At Home with

Eve & Richard Runnals of Just Additions & Remodeling During the process of flipping their current abode, Eve and Richard Runnals, of Just Additions & Remodeling, realized that this temporary house really started feeling more like home. Instead of finding a new home after the remodel was complete, the couple, along with their dog, Lola, and cat, Bella, decided to put down roots. The dwelling has now been customized to meet their needs and works perfectly for them and their lifestyle. With ample space for hobbies, entertaining, and relaxation, this duo has settled into Mt. Pleasant nicely.

1

Before the couple moved in, Richard added trim to each room. Crown moulding, windowsills, and window casings were all installed. Later, in the living room, the walls were removed on either side of the fireplace to make the floor plan more open and conducive to their needs. The flow between the living room, kitchen, bar, and outdoor space makes it perfect for entertaining, which is something they both enjoy.

2

Another remodeling project Richard completed in this space is this built-in bar. He took out half of the closet and installed this wet bar complete with granite countertops, floating shelves, a refrigerator, and a wine fridge. This update is nestled between the kitchen and the dining room making it the perfect place for a bar. Also, since only half of the under-the-staircase closet was used, there is still functional storage space available.

3

Normally Richard happily kept his fly fishing gear and workbench in the garage, but this home’s spacious nature allowed him to have a spot inside. Richard has organized the room to keep all of his equipment nicely sorted and displayed in an aesthetically pleasing fashion. As a sign of goodwill towards his indoor “man cave,” Eve painted the room herself.

4

Since Eve & Richard both enjoy cooking, this kitchen received a complete overhaul to help make it brighter and more functional. A 10foot rectangular center island replaced a small, triangular, and impractical one. After a little back and forth on the design of the new piece, Eve and Richard are both pleased with the final product.

CRAFTED IN CHARLESTON The Craftsmen:

Vann Cochran, owner of Salt Wood Co.

The Craft:

Vann, along with his team of craftsmen, design and create custom furniture and doors from reclaimed and new wood, all with natural finishes.

The Backstory:

After two years of building bed swings, Vann decided to branch out and work with a wider variety of reclaimed wood and designs. When he first started out, he drew everything by hand in order to visualize each concept for a new piece of furniture. Now, those drawings are artfully displayed on the wall of his showroom, and technology has taken over the drawing board to streamline the process of each element of fabrication. Because every item that Salt Wood Co. builds is completely custom, they are often commissioned by anyone from homeowners seeking to salvage a memory to corporate offices filling their meeting spaces with one-of-akind pieces.

The Process:

To start the furniture building process, the team at Salt Wood Co. purchases reclaimed wood from a variety of sources. Whether it’s siding from an old barn or a knotty trunk of sinker cypress that is over a century old, it’s all prime for repurposing in Vann’s eyes. After he obtains the materials, it’s off to the workshop. Since not every board of reclaimed wood is ready for immediate repurposing, Vann and his team help it look its best by sanding, treating, and shaping the components to fit the overall design. From there, the guys assemble the furniture, then take it to a separate room to add the stains or natural finishes in a sawdust-free environment. Once the item has been coated and cured properly, it’s ready to fill a stylish office or a homeowner’s space with character and charm for generations to come.

For more information, call Salt Wood Co. at (843) 714-1850 or visit saltwoodco.com.

GREENHOUSE

Preventative Pest Control The mild winters of the Lowcountry often aren’t powerful enough to eliminate the threat that many insects pose to outdoor spaces throughout the year. According to Nate Ball, one of Schneider Tree Care’s Certified Arborists, bugs and their eggs can hang around in plants and shrubs throughout the winter. By treating landscapes in the fall, homeowners can keep their greenery pest-free through the winter and into spring. Schneider Tree Care offers programs that specifically address the insect problems and health of your trees and shrubs. These programs include treatments with professional grade mixtures

Clean and Green Cabinetry Whether it’s new construction or time for an update, a lot of choices go into creating the perfect kitchen, and it’s important to feel good about those choices. Finding non-toxic kitchen cabinetry, for example, can be an easy way to make your space healthier while keeping it lovely and functional. Unfortunately, it’s common for some cabinets to be constructed using formaldehyde adhesives, which can cause harmful indoor air pollution. Thankfully, alternative options are available; Southeast Kitchens is a distributor of EcoChoice, a cabinetry line committed to green, healthy kitchens. These cabinets are made using formaldehyde-free plywood box construction as well as waterbased clear topcoats. Water-based topcoats and adhesives significantly reduce harmful vapors that can be emitted from other cabinetry. EcoChoice cabinets are also comprised of LEED certified bamboo veneers, and since bamboo is an incredibly renewable and durable wood, it’s an ecofriendly choice as well as a practical one.

of essential oils that are harmless to homeowners, pets, and beneficial insects like ladybugs and praying mantises. Organic nutrients are also available for trees and shrubs, which would go a step further in keeping outdoor spaces healthy in the winter months. Like the insect control programs, Schneider Tree Care’s nutrient program is effective and eco-friendly, feeding plant life with a mixture of helpful fungi and bio stimulants.

H2OME Better Breathing The Charleston area is known to trigger allergies with its heavy humidity and lush vegetation that thrives in the wetland swamps. It can be difficult to keep this humidity and other outdoor allergens, such as moisture that causes mold and mildew out of the home. One way to improve air quality and prevent sickness and allergies is to invest in an air purifier. MBM Corporation sells a new line of air purifiers that work hard to eliminate indoor air pollutants and fit a range of spaces. These ideal.™ purifiers not only keep the Lowcountry climate out of the home but also clear the air of indoor impurities, such as pet dander, mold spores, and many more. The six-stage cleaning system and filtration Articles by Sara Ann Hutto

technology of these purifiers can go a long way toward improving Lowcountry living. Another bonus is that they enrich the air with negative ions, which are shown to help increase blood oxygen levels. With an air purifier, a home can become a healthier haven of relief from the viruses, allergens, and coastal weather so that homeowners can breathe the difference. For more Information:

Learning the lingo

Countertop Characteristics Choosing the right countertops for your home isn’t just a question of color; it’s also a matter of function and durability. Whether you’re installing countertops in your kitchen, bathroom, or outdoor living area, check out this important information for selecting the right type and style of materials that best fit your lifestyle. Popular Countertop MATERIALS

Marble This naturally occurring stone boasts “movement” patterns and colors depending on its region of origin. It may require some maintenance (such as a regular sealant application) to prevent cracking or staining but can often be less expensive than other stone options.

Quartz

Granite A material that comes from quarries across the world, this stone is strong, durable, and normally sports a more simple, multi-faceted pattern. It resists heat and scratches like a pro and doesn’t have to be sealed as often as more porous natural stones.

Recycled Glass

Often referred to in the industry as “quartz,” the name engineered stone is actually more accurate for this countertop option. Engineered stone counters are made from quartz crystals held together with a resin binder. They have a similar appearance to natural stone, but generally require less maintenance.

Recycled Glass countertops are a great way to be green without compromising on style and function. Made from a mixture of crushed recycled glass and cement, this material is durable enough to be installed inside or outside. It is also completely customizable.

Popular Countertop STYLES

Square Simple and clean, this edge style can be constructed by itself or easily enhanced with combinations, like mitered or waterfall edges.

Bullnose

Ogee

Bevel

A rounded edge helps natural stone countertops avoid accidents that can cause chipping along a square rim.

Adding a bevelled perimeter to a countertop assists to prevent most incidents of chipping, while also producing a simple embellishment.

A classically chic alternative to round and square edges, this pattern dips and then curves downward to create timeless interest along the border.

Popular Countertop FINISHES

Polished

Countertop ProS

This finish brings a high gloss shine to a countertop surface, is completely smooth, and reflects natural lighting.

80

Brushed

Honed Also smooth to the touch, this option offers a softer alternative from the high shine of a polished facade for a more muted, casual veneer.

The brushed choice creates an illusion of natural wear and results in a gently embossed, antique look and feel.

Leathered This finish combines a honed shine and a brushed-like texture. Bonus! This method closes the pores of the stone, making it easier to maintain.

ASK THE EXPERTS

Jamey Bradham

Nano Environmental Solutions of Charleston

What are some telltale signs that homeowners should look for around their home to let them know to call you? The first thing I look for and hear a lot is that people say no matter how hard they clean, there is still a mildew smell or a wet, moisture odor in the air. That is a sure sign to me that there is mold or mildew in your HVAC system and/or in your crawlspace. Even though you may have had a crawlspace vapor barrier or encapsulation, our highly humid climate combined with the HVAC system pulling cold air creates condensation, which leads to those problems. Our Nanostatic process is a proprietary technology that is a combination of atomized and electrostatically charged droplets used to sanitize your home. We essentially weaponize hospital grade disinfectant to spray throughout your home and after about 20 minutes or so after it dissipates, you’re home is bacteria free and smells much cleaner. For more information about Nano Environmental Solutions of Charleston, call (877) 787-6266 or visit nanoenviro.com.

Brad Hilfrink Mr. Critter

How does Mr. Critter critter proof a house and when is the best time of year to do that? Basically we go from the peak of the roof to the ground and then six inches below the ground and close every hole that is over half of an inch. We focus on spaces that small because essentially, a rat the size of a squirrel can fit into a hole the size of a quarter. After we block off all of those areas, we go through and then foam the spots to make sure that smells can’t come out to attract the next animal. Once we do all of that, essentially a critter cannot get into your house. Now is a great time to critter proof your space. With the temperatures getting cooler, animals are going to look for warm places to go and a house of any caliber can be susceptible to animals. Even the nicest home can have small holes or cracks where smells can leak out and attract a critter. We specialize in humane animal removal in case one of those critters does slip in before we seal up your house.

Enjoy the Shade

You sell pergolas, but they are not your typical, run-of-the-mill pergolas. What makes your custom product different from others on the market? We had one customer tell us that we are a “pergola that works” and we liked that idea. Our custom pergolas are all aircraft aluminum, hurricane rated, and it not only gives you the sun, but it will give you shade and if it starts raining, it will give you shelter. Our product is motorized so once the rain sensor picks up rain, it automatically shuts so if you have cushions out, they will be protected as will you. If you want to adjust the sunlight coming through, you can use a remote control or even your smartphone to adjust your pergola. Also, our product is completely custom so we will work with architects, builders, and homeowners to get it just right. We can even take a paint chip to perfectly color match your pergola to your house. For more information about Enjoy the Shade, call (843) 345-3214 or visit arcadiaroofs.com.

Building Blocks

Company: Bennett Hofford Construction Company Credentials: Hank Hofford began his career in Charleston over 35 years ago and has built over 400 of the finest homes along the South Carolina coast. Since 1983, Hank and his team at Bennett Hofford Construction have become synonymous with exceptional high-end construction and renovations.

How were you able to meet the specific needs of the homeowner for this project? This home was constructed in 1989 and the kitchen was outdated and closed off from the rest of the house. Our team relocated several structural walls to create a more modern and open layout. A third story addition was also constructed over an existing, finished library located above the garage. The new addition includes a bunk room and separate bedroom, each with their own bathroom, as well as a custom den for the kids.

What are some of the unique features of this home? The homeowners requested that their personal chef participate in the design and layout of the kitchen for religious purposes. This is the first truly kosher kitchen Bennett Hofford has constructed and it was a fascinating learning experience for our team.

What were some of the challenges of this remodel? For both the kitchen and the third story addition, the biggest challenge was providing appropriate structural support. In the kitchen, we removed several structural walls and reinforced the remaining structural walls. Next we added 35-foot steel columns and a custom framed roof system and floor system to support the new addition without disturbing the cherry paneled library below or the clients enjoyment of the rest of the home.

What advice do you give homeowners? We advise clients to collect all their wish list items for their home, along with their long-term plans for the home, and set realistic budgets and priorities. Then, assemble a qualified team of designers and contractors to work up a plan to accomplish the goals of the project. This results in the most efficient use of time and money, and usually hits the target the first time through the process.

Architects + Archetypes

Architect: Darryl Cobb, AIA, NCARB Company: Cobb Architects Credentials: Darryl received his Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and for the last 24 years he has been working in the architectural field. He began his own firm in March of 2000.

What did the homeowners have in mind when they approached you about constructing their James Island home? There were a few specifics. They wanted an open floor plan with some coastal design features. Since the property has fantastic views, they also wished for their home to take advantage of those panoramas and to complement the site. Another request the homeowners made was to build the house as low to the ground as possible with an attached garage. A swimming pool was very important as well.

What were some of the challenges that you overcame while designing this home? Positioning the house correctly on the lot was essential. We worked with FEMA requirements and OCRM critical lines that protect the wetlands and, therefore, in this case, created an oddly-shaped lot. Not to mention there were other building setbacks, height restrictions, and we had to protect several oak trees.

What are some of the unique design elements of this home? Looking back, there were a couple of features that I believe we put together well. The house and garage are positioned under and around several beautiful oak trees. I don't think we cut one tree down. Also, the house is as low to the ground as code would allow. I love that the front of the house (on the water side) terraces down. We also brought grade up around the terraces and some portions of the house. This home melds very well with the site, and it’s not a beach house on stilts, just as the homeowners requested.

Inspired Interiors

Company: Yvonne Gregory Interiors Credentials: Yvonne’s journey in design started in Los Angeles over 40 years ago, where she was co-owner of a design and construction company. As a world traveler, she has gathered design inspiration from locations and scenery all around the globe. She relocated to Charleston in 1988 and has worked on projects in New York, Idaho, Florida, and The Netherlands.

What are some of the key design elements of this space? My clients wanted a crisp, minimalist, contemporary feel that capitalized on the open floor plan. It was also important to them that we make it feel comfortable and fashionable, so we chose a gray sofa for a sophisticated and easily styled color and then added a shag rug for warmth and texture.

What is your favorite feature of this home? The size and number of windows provide plenty of natural light, which always makes my job delightful. It also makes the room feel bigger and warmer, so it was fun to create a home with cool colors and fun textures that balances the abundant daylight.

Why is it important for homeowners to hire an interior designer for a project? Organization is key to every project! Designers have access to furniture, fixtures and accessories that the layperson could never find. An expert can keep their clients on track and within their budget. We can assist in all parts of a project, from the initial conceptual floor plans to the complete interior design down to hanging their art in exactly the right place. A professional interior designer will help homeowners avoid costly mistakes. For more information, call Yvonne Gregory Interiors at (843) 7083535 or visit yvonnegregoryinteriors.com.

t might be an understatement to say that when Kevin and Nancy Swan purchased their lot on Seabrook Island, they knew it had potential. Poised right at the meeting of Captain Sam’s Creek, the Kiawah River, and the ocean, the scenery from their first story deck and huge second story windows is among the most spectacular in the Lowcountry. The next step to take advantage of their new panoramas was clear: assemble a team of custom home professionals who could capitalize on every aspect of their prime real estate. That’s when the Swans approached

Chris Rose of Christopher Rose Architects. They sought out Chris Rose and his team after a glowing recommendation from a previous client. “We met with a few architects, but we pretty much knew from the start that Chris was the right fit,” explains Kevin. “His style and personality really meshed with our own,” adds Nancy. The trio sat down and did an initial sketch of the home. From there, they worked closely with Julie Keyes, an architect at Christopher Rose Architects, to nail down the details of the design. Since Nancy also has a background in interior de-

sign, she and Julie travailed tirelessly over each feature of the home to cultivate an abode that emulates what Chris calls “Barefoot Elegance.” Around the same time, Nancy and Kevin interviewed with several builders to find the right crew to complete their casually sophisticated domicile. When they met with Matt Byrd of Byrd Builders, something he mentioned piqued their interest. “The Swans selected us as their builder just prior to finalizing the design of the home so that we could help with a term we like to use, ‘value

Another trait that both Kevin and Nancy agreed was key was for the builder they chose to be directly involved in the process. Since Byrd Builders only works on a

few projects at a time, Matt makes a point to be on every work site every day. “That was a huge deal for us,” Kevin says. “We wanted someone who would be as invested in our project as we were, and Matt did just that.” Nancy and Kevin knew that it was vital to install the right materials in their coastal home to help it with-

stand the salty elements. That’s where Southern Lumber & Millwork came into the picture. The long-established local company provided all of the custom millwork for the home, as well as the Andersen A-Series impact-rated doors and windows. “When it comes to prepping for a storm, this home is a turnkey package.

Then they can stay or you can evacuate, but the home and everything inside will remain safe and dry during the majority of storms. That's the benefit of choosing hurricaneresistant building products,” details Jennifer Blackwelder of Southern Lumber. Because Kevin and Nancy travel frequently, that peace of mind was priceless. Some of the most architecturally impressive custom millwork aspects that Southern Lumber's custom millwork can be seen in the interior and exterior radius mouldings, the oval portals by the outdoor fireplace, and the radius framing for the barrel roof in the upstairs living room. “Other than the views from that space in the house, the barrel ceiling is one of our favorite features,” Nancy describes.

The homeowner called in experienced interior designer Bobbi Jo Engleby of Domain Interiors & Design to help her integrate her antique pieces into her new space. (top) Bobbi worked with the homeowner to pick everything from lighting to paint colors in this completely revamped kitchen. (bottom) One of the many fresh elements in this home that adds a pop of interest is the foiled tiles from Buckhannon Brothers Tile that increased the style of the bookshelf units.

“The thing about working with a designer is, you might have an idea, and you share it with somebody like Bobbi, then they add a suggestion, and suddenly what you have bumps up ten points,” explains the homeowner. Evidence of this notion can be seen throughout the home, like the “Patriot Blue” bar cabinets (instead of navy blue because Bobbi pointed out “navy” can often read as “black”), the custom designed Mirth

Studio tiles, and the recovered living room furniture. The living room is where many of the bigger pieces that Bobbi had to help incorporate into the new design are located. The homeowner’s mother’s Martha Washington chairs, a large area rug, and an antique settee were three key pieces that needed to work. Careful color choices, swapping out surrounding

pieces of furniture, and expert accessorizing generated a look that made the vintage pieces feel right at home with the modern elements of this freshly designed space. One of the key transitional areas that helped tie the looks together was the mantle flanked by the built-in bookshelves.

It was clear from their first meeting with Ruth, Jay, and Rebecca that this couple knew what they wanted, but needed a little direction. “Most homeowners know what they don’t like, so we start our process there, meet with them, talk with them, learn how they live their lives, how they plan to use the spaces we’ll

be working on, and use all of that knowledge to help them find the perfect blueprint for their lifestyle,” describes Jay. Because the homeowners enjoy entertaining in their home, they planned the kitchen at length with Rebecca to go beyond the beauty into a truly functional layout that creates the ideal floor plan

for multiple people and movement throughout the room. “The homeowners wanted to have as large of an island as possible so that they could set up things like buffets and breakfasts to let people help themselves,” explains Rebecca. “From there, we worked on everything, from each cabinet space, to where the trashcan would go, or even how each cookie sheet would be stored for maximum functionality.” All of that forethought even helped the couple on move-in day, because they

didn’t have to figure out where items like the cutlery would go—there was already a custom designated drawer for everything. With all that planning for efficiency, Rebecca and the homeowners didn’t forget about the aesthetic balance of the kitchen, which connects to the living area in the open floor plan. The couple wanted a very traditional style for both rooms, so Rebecca worked with their ideas and the magazine pic-

tures they had collected to draw up a simple and elegant masterpiece. “We chose cherry cabinets with a Cordovan stain as a nod to their traditional aesthetic and paired it with a simple shaker door,” says Rebecca.

However, we didn’t spend too much time messing with the plan. We had a good direction from the beginning.” After the “ah ha” moment where

the plan clicked into place for the initial design, the rest of the planning went well. “They did a really good job of taking direction and really just listening to our ideas,” adds homeowner, Becky Smith. “After just the first meeting, they almost nailed it; there were only minor changes after that. It was such an easy process.”

The home’s design came together with a great fluidity in many aspects. The home’s layout flows nicely from one space to another. A carefully thought out open floor plan allowed for more usable space in every room of the main floor.

for the better part of a decade, it was clear to Bill and Dee that a fellow resident who understood their way of life was the man for the job. “Bill and Dee wanted to open up the first floor to take advantage of their backyard marsh views, which can be tricky on Daniel Island, even though it’s surrounded by water,” adds Nathan. “There are trees, lot orientation, and of course building codes that have to be met and worked

around to accomplish everything.” The master bathroom update was one of Dee’s must-haves. “I brought Nathan a picture of what I wanted and he made it happen,” Dee mentions. The main feature she requested was a waterfall vanity leading into the master shower. As the builder and project manager, it was important to Nathan to ensure that each detail of the master bathroom was just as Dee wished. “When I talk to our

clients, it’s vital for us to be on the same page, so when they show me pictures, like Dee did, it immediately turns their vision into my vision,” describes Nathan. While the bathroom was underway, the kitchen was also being redesigned. Bill and Dee worked with Delpino Custom Homes and Jilco Kitchens and Baths to completely redraw the kitchen’s layout to the best advantage of the home and CH+D • Fall 2017

tarting my freshman year of high school, my then boyfriend (and now husband) began bringing me to the Marine Corps Birthday Ball. Granted, the J.R. Tucker High School JROTC Marine Corps Ball is different from the active duty Marine Corps Ball that I’ve been to in recent years, but the sentiment, spirit, and

enthusiasm are all the same. With that first glimpse of the Marine Corps, ooh rah, devil dog world, it’s become such a large part of my life that I was in shock and honored beyond belief that I was going to get the chance to meet and interview General Livingston and his wife. His legendary heroics and leadership have made an impact that will never be forgotten and continue to shape the Marines of today. For me, as the wife of a marine, having the opportunity to meet Sara Livingston, General Livingston’s wonderful wife, was like getting to meet Mickey Mantle or Grace Kelly because she is the gold standard for Marine spouses. Throughout his 33-year career with the Marine Corps, General Livingston received the Medal of Honor, a Navy Distinguished Service Medal, a Silver Star, a Superior Service Medal, a Bronze Star with a Combat “V” and three Purple Hearts among many others. Take a look inside the home of the Livingstons and read more about the exciting life and career of General Livingston and his family.

Throughout your career you’ve been known, in part, for your leadership skills and instincts. Were you that way as a child and did you have a certain role model growing up for that leadership and determination? I guess I sort of was. I’d always push myself to work hard and do the best I could in school. I tried to encourage myself and other people. It turned out to be a successful route at the end of the day. I was always impressed with my mom because of her drive. She was a very disciplined and driven person and very demanding. I take up a lot of my characteristics from her. My dad was a little bit more laid back and easy going. My mom, she worked hard and lived to be 89 years old. She worked right up until she couldn’t anymore.

en farms in the South. We had the big chicken farm and a turkey farm. My dad was really on the cutting edge of all of that; he was an innovative guy in terms of farming. What made you decide to join the Marine Corps? I chose the Marine Corps because I was always impressed with the uniform and impressed with the people that I met who were Marines. I spent two boot camps during one summer up at Quantico. I got drafted in 1961 and I was graduating in 1962 and I decided I wanted to go into the Marine

Were there any members of your family that were in the military? I had two uncles who were; one uncle who was with the 82nd Airborne during World War II made a couple of jumps in Europe during the time. He was a hell raiser, so he never made it beyond corporal. My other uncle joined the army but never deployed. Most of my dad’s brothers were exempt because they were farmers. If you were a farmer, you could get exempt because they considered you critical on the home front. Your father was a farmer too, correct? Yes, I grew up on a farm in Towns, GA. I would get up early, work, go to school, work, study, and then go to bed. I always tell people that I’m 77 and I’ve been working for about 73 years. My dad was not a very easy guy to deal with and he expected you to work. It was a farm primarily associated with tobacco, cotton, watermelons, a lot of corn, and other vegetables. We had a dairy farm, and we actually had one of the first big chick-

My intent was to just do my three years and be done, but then I went to Vietnam at first in 1963 and ’64, without much going on and I came back and then went to Cherry Point, North Carolina, which is where the Marine Corps Air Station is located. I had been talking about getting a regular commission and had been offered one several times, and I decided that since the war was cranking up that I’d get a regular commission. From there, they sent me to Parris Island and then I went seagoing aboard an aircraft carrier and went to Vietnam the second time. You know, you’re sort of committed by then. [laughs] I went back a third time in ’74 and ’75 and did the evacuation of Saigon and was almost the last guy out in 1975. Two more helicopters came out of the embassy, but in terms of the over all larger aspect of the operation, I was on the last helicopter going out. What was one of your favorite parts about serving?

Corps. I had met this major who was a really sharp looking guy. The program that I had to go into, they normally have a boot camp in the summer between your sophomore and junior years and then a boot camp between your junior and senior year, but I was already at my summer between my junior and senior year. I ended up having to do two boot camps: one at the beginning of the summer and then a second boot camp before the summer was over. Needless to say, it was an interesting summer. When did you decide to turn being a Marine into your career?

I think the episode that I got the Medal of Honor sort of sticks in the memory a little bit, obviously. It was a major, major operation with the whole NVA division, which was 10,000 North Vietnamese, and 800 Marines against them. A lot of people were hurt and a lot of people were killed over there; 100 killed in that fight. Also, we’ve gotten to go to some nice places. We loved living in London and stayed in London for three years. The Philippines was nice. I’m a big fan of the orient; I’m a terribly big fan really and have spent a lot of time there and have been to most all of the countries in it. All of that is really fun. We did Kaneohe Bay in Hawaii and really enjoyed it. We didn't get to stay there too long, but we enjoyed it. We went to New Orleans and stayed there for a long time. I became a real lover of New Orleans. If it hadn’t been for my wife, I’d have probably never left. [laughs] I’m a big N’awlins guy. I always say that Charleston is a cleaned-up N’awlins.

(inset) Mrs. Livingston explained that she likes to cook and when she does, she picks the menu and whenever she and her husband go out, he gets to pick the restaurant to provide a fair balance.

You’ve written a lot about how the Marine Air-Ground Task Force (MAGTF) separates the USMC from other branches. Can you expand on that? First of all, the Marine Corps is very unique in the sense that every person in it is a Marine first. You go to other branches, like the Navy, and people talk about, “oh, he’s submariner,” or “he’s a pilot,” or something else, but we’re a Marine first. We’re very uniquely designed to be the first force to go and always be the more prepared to go because we emphasize

122

CH+D • Fall 2017

preparation and being forward deployed and responsive to whatever the nation’s commander says. That’s our forte. If we don’t perform to the expectations of the national military establishment or the national command, people might start asking why we need a Marine Corps because the Army or Air Force could do the mission. We are always having to fortify ourselves as being very unique and special as well as responsive and adaptive to whatever they throw at us. I read that you helped to found the

Desert Warfare Training Program. How did your time in Vietnam help you with this? It taught me very simply that you had to train up for the threat. This focused me a lot. During Vietnam, the reason we were so successful was that I was very tough on the Marines, and I worked all of the time to make sure they were physically fit and prepared both physically and mentally to deal with the threat that they had to go up against. I pushed them pretty hard. I got a good or bad reputation because of that, but at the end of the day, they’re all about 68, 69, and 70 years old, and they all tell me now, “Skipper, you done a good job.” I tell them in the older days, I had two goals: get the job done and to bring them all home. I was very focused on what I could do to accomplish both


of those tasks and bringing them home was a big deal to me. Is it fair to say that a lot of what was learned in Vietnam continues on today? You can see a lot of the success of the Vietnam vets during Desert Storm and a lot of legacy from that generation and the continued success going on to other operations. I think they did a good job. The other legacy of the Vietnam veterans is to make sure that the service people coming home are well treated. A lot of the focus of the Vietnam generation in contrast to what our generation experienced is the focus that the service people coming home are respected and that in the hospital systems they are well taken care of. There’s been a lot of hell raising against the VA to make sure they are getting whatever they’re due is as far as VA

benefits. I can’t count how many community organizations are out here that take care of vets, but it is a large number. That is a reflection of the Vietnam veterans and their desire to not see the same things repeated. That is definitely part of their legacy. Part of your own personal legacy is your family. How were you able to balance a personal life with your career and deal with all of those moves? General Livingston: Well, I think you sort of just develop this attitude and mindset where every two or three years you’re just ready to go. Mrs. Livingston: We don’t spring house clean, we just move! We’ve moved 29 times I believe. Sometimes we just stayed somewhere for three months or so while waiting for other housing.

Did your family have any favorite duty stations? Well, we enjoyed London and Hawaii, but none of them have been bad—even the ones aboard Marine bases like Camp Lejeune, Camp Pendleton, and Quantico. Basically, we’ve been to all of them. I’ve traveled all over the world, but the top of the ladder is probably London. We try to get back there every year. We’re big theatre people in London. There’s nothing better than listening to those Cockney guys trying to talk US. I’ll tell you, one of the cutest plays we’ve seen over there is Jersey Boys. They try to do the Jersey accents. Listening to those Cockney boys with their strong accents try to be Jersey guys with their strong accents is one of the damn funniest things I’ve ever seen. I really am a big fan of that particular play. The music of the Four Seasons is all my time.

Since you’ve lived all over the world, how did you two end up settling down here in Mt. Pleasant? Mrs. Livingston: I’m from South Carolina; Swansea if you’ve ever heard of it. Also, we met at Parris Island. I was teaching school in Beaufort and he was stationed at Parris Island. We both liked the Lowcountry and back then Beaufort was very small so we went to Charleston or Savannah to shop. We always said we’d come back to Charleston one day. General Livingston: I think the thing with Charleston, in contrast really to New Orleans, is that there is a variety. In New Orleans, you don’t have that and you don't have the extensive history that you find here either. If you look at it in terms of the history of Charleston and the layout of the city, it’s all here. You’ve got the theatre, great restaurants, the beach, and I don’t know what else you could ask for. What makes a house a home for you? I think what makes a house a home is just enjoying the environment of living there and coming home and reflecting on your experiences. Being with my wife and kids is just it. If you look at this house here, it is filled with a lot of memories. You look around and there are so many little trinkets and there are memories attached to every one of them. From the bobby hat over here that a police officer in London gave me years ago to all this other crap. It may not look like much, but it all has a story to it.

I think all of the homes and everything are all sort of related to each other. I look over here and see all of the Medal of Honor things and the items I’ve been given that are one of a kind. We have the paintings and much of the furniture is one-of-a-kind and handmade in the Philippines. Throughout there are so many unique character things. I enjoy this whole place [condo building] and I don't think there’s any one particular point that I like. I stay hidden a lot down in the gym. I like living in this building because of its proximity to the gym. The gym and the pool both are nice. This place has everything really, including the grill, and there’s nothing we’re missing. Also, we are so close to Charleston. Frankly, I wanted to live in downtown Charleston, but I struggled and struggled looking at those old homes and I just didn’t want to spend the rest of my life maintaining an old home. Your achievements are well known and reflected throughout this lovely home, and we haven’t talked yet about your Medal of Honor or other awards. The Medal of Honor is the highest award you can get for military combat operations. There’s only been about 3,500 recipients and better than half were during the Civil War. There’s only 73 alive today. The thing about the Medal of Honor is that 65% are awarded posthumously. And you are one of the few to receive one amongst other awards like your three Purple Hearts.

When we went to the place where he was wounded in the battle, we pulled up in the van and they were having some kind of big party with kegs of beer, karaoke, and dancing. Before the vehicle even stopped they were running up to the van and pulling us out and handing us a beer! So many years ago there was this big battle going on and so many years later, here are some Vietnamese people welcoming you back. General Livingston: They party in Vietnam. They don't drink wine and stuff; they drink beer. I guess it is cheaper and the water isn’t very good. You either drink beer or bottled water. The food is good. You live off of Vietnamese food for a week you want to come home and have a big steak. I fought for them to live like that, so it’s nice to go back and see it.

A Lutron lighting control system replaced the large banks of light switches with a single keypad throughout the home to provide convenient control of all lighting elements without the wall clutter created by large switch banks. This particular system also provides timed events for landscape and exterior entry points around the home. Intrusion protection is the common feature of any security system, but this one was customized to include monitored carbon monoxide and smoke sensors that alert the fire department as well as qualify the home for insurance discounts. Water sensors are also strategically placed at all water-fed appliances and bathroom fixtures to shut off the water if a leak is detected and send text notifications. Discrete speakers are blended into and around the home’s finishes to provide theater-level sound quality without the muddle of large speakers or cords. The tv in the main living room is placed on a custom wall bracket which stores the TV in a traditional position and easily folds down for a more comfortable viewing angle for that move or game event. Security, lighting and audio/visual features can easily be controlled local or remotely by an app from any mobile device or the dedicated iPad in the kitchen.

Outdoor WiFi allows control of the Surround System electronics located safely inside.

Lighting scenes can be managed for entertaining or a quiet night at home.

To avoid unnecessary cable or satellite boxes and eliminate redundant devices, this Control4 system was designed with the bare, but sleek and high-tech, necessities in mind. All of the audio and video gear and cords are physically located in a mechanical closet upstairs, eliminating electronic clutter from each room. All digital services, such as music, video, lighting, climate, and other system controls, are available in each room in the house through the homeowners’ smartphones or tablets. Each subtle service is designed to play a supportive role behind the home’s physical architecture. Surveillance is key in keeping this home safe while the homeowners are away as well. Cameras allow them to monitor the property at any time, and remote and automatic controls for lighting, garage doors, water, thermostat, and even water enable the homeowners to keep a close eye on everything from anywhere in the world.

INTENSE NETWORKING ABOUT:

A Control4 home automation system was installed in this home in order for the homeowners to complete their daily tasks by allowing easy control of lighting, audio, video, and intercom through an iPhone, iPad, or the dedicated touch screens placed at intervals around the house. The importance of convenient communication was important to these homeowners as well, because of the two guest suites above the garages. To solve the problem, 7” touch screens supplied the solution so that the guests can speak with the hosts via video intercom. A network is the home’s central nervous system for all communications and control, so the homeowners opted for a business class network for seamless internet access from any device at any location on the property. Two TV’s in the kitchen alone enable each person to watch what they choose without compromise or streaming interruptions and the Origin Acoustic speakers are outfitted for a discreet style and powerful sound.

SECURITY AND CONTROL ABOUT: Security Systems now feature sleek touchscreen control panels and provide an affordable way to effectively secure an abode, while offering the same automation features of what would have been a more expensive system in the past. Homeowners can control all smart devices through one app, which provides the ability to set one device to trigger an action in another feature of the system or to control multiple devices with the touch of one button. The security system alerts the homeowners to any disturbances or trouble in the home (an ideal setting for a second home) and they can take action right from the app. From their smart phone or tablet, they can set schedules and rules for camera operation, lighting control, door locks, thermostats, and the garage door controllers. Having an easy way to set lighting and other features is also a safety precaution for the occupants of the home. The lighting can be programmed to flash when the alarm goes off, but it can also be set to come on at night on dimmer levels to prevent accidents.

Lighting control is part of home safety, even if just to avoid stumbling in the dark.

A smart thermostat connected to the system saves energy year-round.

Inspiration Actualization

(above and right) Having an open kitchen for entertaining was a priority for homeowners, Elicia and Brandon. This layout allows them to have ample flow between the breakfast nook, kitchen, and great room. The over-sized island proved to be tricky to design, but the results meets their needs perfectly.

T

iming, creativity, hard work, and a lot of inspiration went into producing this Ravenel home for Elicia Thompson, her fiancé Brandon Hart, and their pups Kooper and Trooper. After not receiving the experience that they were looking for with their first builder, a disheartened Elicia and Brandon by chance met Shawn and Maria Doogan of Southeastern Family Homes of South Carolina while walking their dogs and suddenly their dreams were back on track. The four worked closely together to build a dwelling that checked off all of the boxes this young couple had on their wish list. Thanks to Brandon’s architectural design skills, Elicia’s scads of concept pictures and collection of Charleston Home + Design magazines, and the communication and connection with Southeastern Family Homes, the

244

process was (mostly) smooth sailing. Keeping in mind that this wasn’t their forever home, but still wanting it to be a nice fit for their style and needs, the couple spent a lot of time researching and planning for this

abode. The motivated homeowners brought many notions for this space, both inside and out, to the table. They watched programs like Fixer Upper and scoured Pinterest. In addition, many ideas were also gleaned via Charleston Home + Design magazine issues and the Daniel Island Home Tour. Elicia and Maria quickly clicked and the two spent hours upon hours hashing out the details of this home. “We went on the home tour this past year together and it was our favorite. We saw so many things we liked,” adds Elicia. “It was nice having Maria there to reign us in and remind us that we already had lighting and selections pinned down because we liked so much of what we saw!” While toting around old dog-eared and tabbed issues, Elicia and Maria journeyed all over Charleston picking

out materials for this house. One of Elicia’s must-have items was the granite countertop from AGM Imports. “We actually had to scale back the size of the island because I fell so in love with that slab. Originally, I wanted to have a really big island. Everybody gathers in the kitchen and we hardly ever sit on the sofas in the other room,” notes Elicia. To finish the look of this perfect gathering

246

CH+D • Fall 2017

space, Elicia picked out backsplash tile from Carpet Baggers Carpet One, cabinets from Authentic Kitchens, trim from Southern Lumber & Millwork, and appliances from Plugs Appliance Center. It was important to the homeowners to not only pick out the perfect finishes for every aspect of this project, but to put in a little sweat

equity as well. “We saved some of the projects for after we moved in because we wanted to do them ourselves. The shiplap walls we did as well as the casing and the wainscoting,” explains Elicia when pointing out the shiplap wall treatment that was sourced from Buck Lumber & Building Supply. “Nearly anywhere that you see the shiplap, underneath of that on the

After mulling over this option Elicia phoned in the change that a lighter wood-like tile would be a better solution for their two large dogs and their frequent visitors.

wall we wrote special notes to put our personal stamp into the home.” With Brandon’s architectural background, their personal stamp was, in some ways, already made on the residence. “Brandon designed the home and even put it into a CAD system. I just had to bring it back to my guys to put the finishing touches on the plan,” expounds Shawn. From that plan,

the two couples carefully explored the footprint and layout of the domicile and Brandon and Elicia were able to tweak and alter the plan easily before the foundation was poured. After flipping through magazines and watching television programs to gather design and decorating concepts and diligently working for months on end,

the home was finally completed. The flourishing relationship between the homeowners and the Southeastern Family Homes build team has continued even though the project has been completed for a year. Even with all of the tweaks and modifications, the open lines of communication and genuine bond created during this time helped turn builders and clients into friends. ❣ CH+D • Fall 2017

ShopTalk Charleston Home + Design Office Remodel The remodeling bug hit home here at the offices of Charleston Home + Design magazine, which resulted in many changes both inside and out. With the boom of business taking place in the upper Charleston peninsula around our office, we were inspired by our architecturally inventive neighbors and opted to start making some improvements of our own. To help make all of our plans come to life, Philip Wingate of Lowcountry Tradesmen stepped up to the challenge. Our renovations began in the garage, moved outside, and worked their way into the main floor of the building. The first project that Philip tackled was to transform our storage area. He created custom shaker-style cabinets to protect our storage areas and installed coordinating luxury vinyl plank floors. Next, Philip was able to create a graded parking area on the side of the building featuring ROC and plantation dust finish. One of the most eye-catching improvements has to be the large, wooden marquee out front that Philip handcrafted out of American cherry wood floor planks from Charleston Plank Floors. The lush, green synthetic turf from Palmetto Moon Synthetic Turf complements this new sign well.

(top) A new lighting fixture from Rick’s Lighting + Home hangs over the large custom-remodeled conference table that Philip Wingate of Lowcountry Tradesmen extended to accommodate our growing staff with ample seating. (bottom left) A total transformation took place in the powder room including a peach-colored door, new vanity, upgraded lights with a coordinating mirror, new flooring and freshly painted walls. (bottom right) Philip stands in front of another of his custom creations—an 8’x8’ marquee wall made from American cherry variable width flooring sourced from Charleston Plank Floors used in the Charleston Home + Design Magazine 2009 Idea House.

The custom work continued inside as well. After fixing several plumbing and electrical issues, Philip used salvaged materials to create a custom barn door, mobile island work space, and new kitchen countertops. In addition, Philip repainted all of the walls, doors, and hardware throughout the main floor. For more information about Philip Wingate of Lowcountry Tradesmen, call (843) 437-6681.

The most recent round of Charleston Home + Design’s hit event Shark Tank: Architect Edition took place this past August as part of the Charleston Architect Symposium during the Charleston Fall Home Show. This installment of the biannual event saw new faces with the inclusion of Lowcountry interior designers into the mix of attendees. The select group of vendors in the symposium had the opportunity to chat with over 40 architects and interior designers about a product or service that would be of interest to them. Throughout the two-hour event, vendors were able to meet with the symposium attendees and carryout meaningful engagements during this relaxed and pressure-free time.

Palmetto Tile Distributors (843) 266-8700 | palmettotile.com

The architects and interior designers received an information sheet with all of the vendors’ information on it to make following up easy once the show was over. At the conclusion of the day’s events, vendor-donated prizes were given to lucky winning participants who stayed the entire day. Again this year, positive feedback resounded as more and more is done each year to make the event a success.
