Charming Restorations

Written by Ashley Rowell | Photography by Kelly Parrish & Bailey Baker

Locally known for their transformative renovation and restoration projects, this construction management firm uses a hands-on approach to better preserve the unique history of Charleston.

What projects does Palmetto Craftsmen specialize in?

We are a construction management firm with in-house capabilities in fine carpentry and finishes, as well as numerous long term business relationships with first-rate subcontractors. Our experience embraces renovation and restoration of historic properties, newer homes, light commercial construction, and general repairs and maintenance.

Most challenging part about historic renovations?

They require patience from all parties and are not completed under the same timeline as a typical renovation. It requires many meetings, consultations, and collaborations from both engineers, the Board of Architectural Review, and other organizations to ensure the building complies with local and state building codes.

What advice do you have for homeowners looking to do some updates to their home? Trust in your contractor is something we strongly believe in. We build trust by giving each customer a detailed breakdown cost estimate for their project rather than a quick proposal with no substance. Honesty is one of our founding principles. We utilize this throughout the project, from a detailed estimate to an open book detailed billing.

Where do you see Palmetto Craftsmen in the future?

I like the size of our business. If you get too big, you lose a little of that personal touch that gives us our charm. We are in the process of building a new office off Dorchester Road, which will house our team as well as a full-size workshop for our carpenters. We are very excited about the future in our new home.

For more information, call Palmetto Craftsmen, Inc. at (843) 772-1101 or visit

Husband and wife licensed Realtor duo, Ken and Kristin Rush of Rush Team Real Estate tell us about the housing market in the Lowcountry and what prospective buyers or sellers should know.

Ken Said:

Written by Ashley Rowell | Photography by Kelly Parrish

A Rush Towards Real Estate

Kristin Said: Is Charleston in a buyer's or seller's market?

Both. The seller needs to price their home just right to sell. While the buyer can find a creative way to buy down the mortgage.

There are a lot of people moving here who do not want to live in a planned community or right on top of their neighbor. More acreage means more space. It is an opportunity to build your own home.

Waterfront property or more acreage?

Most people move here specifically to be near the water. Waterfront property whether it is on the river, lake, or ocean is expensive but more desirable than most. I mean, we are the Lowcountry.

Even in these tough economic times, the value of homes in Charleston are on pace to increase by twelve percent. In the long run, your home will increase in value.

Is purchasing a home in Charleston a good investment?

Charleston is a destination place. We have something here for everyone from the beach to glorious dining options. People are bound to find a niche in their new hometown.

How to get the highest dollar for your home?

A home must have curb-appeal. Curb-appeal sets expectations. Potential buyers are more inclined to see the inside of the home if they like what they see on the outside.

We are in a seller's market due to low inventory. However, high interest rates are shrinking the pool of potential buyers.

Expect to receive the highest dollar when your home is move-in ready.

BluDot at Iola Modern The most coveted of combinations; form and function, follow the mix-and-match nature behind the brand BluDot, available in Charleston exclusively at Iola Modern. Here’s what designer Steven Ortego has to share about their partnership.

Thataway 88” Sleeper Sofa in Tait Charcoal, Double Down Lounge Chair in Toffee Leather, Super Swoval Coffee Table in Marble/ Black, Perimeter Floor Lamp in Black, Hoopla Large Mirror in Oblivion, Plot Large Planter in White

What is it about BluDot that fits Iola Modern so well?

As a designer, what do you love most about BluDot?

I’ve been loving BluDot’s designs for nearly twenty years. I’ve always appreciated the fact that this brand makes good design accessible for everyone and in any age range. We knew when we opened Iola Modern that this was a line our customers could appreciate because these pieces are easy to mix into any application whether it be commercial or residential.

BluDot is for everybody and they fill a need for solutions. It’s democratic in a sense that it’s accessible in price and the quality is appropriate for any use. You’ll see it all around town from restaurants to salons to front porches. Find BluDot around Charleston at The Co-Op, Orange Spot Coffee House, Basic Kitchen, The Daily, King’s Tide, among others.

For those unfamiliar with the brand, what can shoppers expect from these products?

All-time favorite piece?

The catalog and colorways work in all types of designs, not only modern. There’s also a quick turnaround. No one likes to wait for their new pieces and BluDot makes the process quick and easy for shoppers. There aren’t too many options which makes it easy to mix and match their pieces. Their blues look good with their greens and so on making a complete look effortless because it has been formulated to do that. 76 • CH+D • Winter 2024

One of our favorite chairs is the Field Lounge Chair; it’s incredibly comfortable with a really nice wide seat, great back support, and a fantastic ottoman. It’s so well-made and it comes in any fabric you could imagine. This is definitely one of their most iconic designs.

At Home with Katie Jones of Island Shade Shoppe

Written by Ashley Rowell | Photography by Callie Webster & Ruta Smith

Katie Jones and Dianna Hibbitts take the design industry by storm with window treatments that are not only functional, but enhance a room's design aesthetic. Katie opens up her home where she displays window treatments in her own signature style; a solid staple with colorful layers.

(above) Dianna Hibbitts and Katie Jones of Island Shade Shoppe.

82 • CH+D • Winter 2024





1. Primary Bedroom

2. Bunk Room

Katie desired her primary bedroom to embody a place to relax. She paired deep green stationary drapery panels, black French return hardware, and Hunter Douglas Provenance Woven Wood Shades with a blackout liner to create a dramatic effect as well as emphasize the feeling of warmth. These shades are also top-down/ bottom-up which allow natural light into the home while ensuring privacy.

The bunk room is a playroom by day and bedroom by night. Katie wanted both daytime privacy without blocking the natural light as well as room-darkening capability. The window treatment in the bunk room is an automated Hunter Douglas Vignette Modern Roman Shade which adds a clean, crisp, and contemporary aesthetic to a bedroom. This 2-in-1 shade has a sheer layer and a black-out liner that is controlled by Hunter Douglas’ PowerView Automation.

3. Guest Bedroom

4. Home Office

Not one for fuss and frills, simple yet fun was Katie’s goal when selecting the window treatments for her guest bedroom. A playful fabric Roman Shade layered over a functional Hunter Douglas Provenance Woven Wood Shade with a blackout liner makes a winning combination for style and purpose.

In her at-home workspace, Katie started with white linen Roman Shades for privacy but to leave only these shades alone felt “lacking,” she says. The addition of drapery panels in fabric by local artist, Emily Daws, made the room more decorative while keeping the functionality of the Roman Shades. These drapery panels are not intended to be closed; they are simply there to bring color and interest into the room.

From Trash to Treasure

Written by Ashley Rowell | Photography by Bailey Baker & Ruta Smith

Founded on the usage of recycled glass from their sister company, Fisher Recycling, GlassEco Surfaces manufactures custom countertop surfaces that are not only sustainable but also stylish.

(above) This outdoor countertop consists of different sized oyster shells, recycled glass from bottles collected from Charleston restaurants, and shells collected by the homeowner. (right) The GlassEco Surfaces showroom is a creative space for customers to design their own custom surfaces.

The Craftsman & Craftswoman

The Process

In 1992, Chris Fisher saw the need for commercial recycling services in the Lowcountry. He created Fisher Recycling, servicing local restaurants, hotels, and resorts. Because of this “seven-hundred tons of glass is kept out of landfills each year,” says Elizabeth. Husband and wife duo, Chris and Elizabeth Fisher saw potential in using the discarded glass and started GlassEco, a custom surface manufacturer.

Explore materials and create a custom sample during an initial visit to their shop in North Charleston. Bring your sample home to check if it is the perfect fit. Once you have approved the design selection, you will work with GlassEco to establish a timeline for installation. While they do not install their surfaces, they can refer you to an experienced fabricator in the area. This process is unlike any other because, “You are able to witness your project materialize with unique qualities,” Elizabeth shares.

The Product

Chris & Elizabeth Fisher of GlassEco Surfaces

Eco-friendly surfaces are a great conversation starter and something unique that homeowners will enjoy for years to come. GlassEco manufactures custom hard surfaces for interior and exterior use such as countertops, fireplace surrounds, shower walls, and more. Create your own glass combinations and add personal elements like shark's teeth or pottery at the showroom.

What were the homeowner’s goals and expectations for this project? They wanted to elevate the indoor/outdoor living spaces to match an upscale resort vibe reminiscent of their Miami roots and the swanky boutique hotels on Ocean Drive.

Describe the living area’s unique features: Interior design firm, JLV Creative, wanted to feature a wine wall that blends seamlessly with the dining area. Our build consists of some framing, a soffit, an installation of a WhisperKool unit, and a wine rack system. We added iron doors and finished off the walls with Portola Paint.

What inspired you to become a custom home builder? In 2012, Hurricane Sandy devastated the area I resided in. The storm left entire towns destroyed; thousands of homes were in need of rebuilding. In light of this tragedy, I formed a residential home-building business with a longtime friend who had been building custom homes for several years.

How long does a typical build take and what affects that timeline? We are a full-service residential construction company which specializes in new builds, additions, renovations, and rehabilitations. Each project is unique, so the typical build time varies. The build process will move slower if you don't make certain decisions upfront. The earlier these selections are made, the better.

Creative Custom Cabinetry To optimize this kitchen’s function, these Daniel Island homeowners called on the expertise of Sullivan Custom Cabinets, Inc. to maximize their storage space and better suit their needs for a clean prep space.

The Setting: These homeowners needed more storage in their cluttered kitchen. Though primarily used for storing, cooking, and prepping food, these homeowners also desired a space to gather and host guests without distraction.

The Problem:

Written by Ashley Rowell | Photography by Kelly Parrish

Life gets messy especially in the kitchen. These homeowners wanted a spacious presentation with a fine finish, but knew the difficulty of keeping a kitchen clean. They wanted to maximize their countertop space while ensuring their kitchen appliances were still easily accessible. Cooking family meals are a staple in this household, but keeping a neat space is also a top priority. It's important to have an area that can do both.

The Solution: The experts at Sullivan Custom Cabinets, Inc. created a space that is functional and simple with glide-out cabinets, hanging shelves to hold décor, and hidden storage under the island. The increase of storage space allows the quartz countertops to remain free from clutter and the shelves to be filled with decorative additions rather than appliances. Access to these appliances is made even easier with glide-out drawers.

(above) Fix-It 24/7’s professionally trained technicians leaving a home after completing a routine maintenance check.

Prevent the Problem Out of sight, out of mind is a typical homeowner philosophy when it comes to HVAC and plumbing system maintenance. With a decrease in temperature comes an increase in repair calls to Fix-It 24/7 here in Charleston. Simply put, be proactive with regular maintenance checks on your systems and transition into the colder months with ease.

What effects can winter have on your home in Charleston? Dust, dirt, and debris shorten the life of a system, which makes it less efficient and more susceptible to breakdowns throughout the year.


Fix-It 24/7 offers regular maintenance checks on your home’s heating and cooling system with their Club Membership. These professionally trained technicians will clean your system from top to bottom to ensure that the dust, dirt, and debris is eliminated along with any heating or cooling issues.

Does my plumbing system also require maintenance?

Plumbing is out of sight, out of mind for most people. With plumbing, people are reactive so they never call the plumber until something has already broken.

92 • CH+D • Winter 2024


In Charleston, plumbing maintenance and upkeep is taken for granted. Prolong the life of your system by checking for leaks, keeping your drains clear, and cleaning your water heater. An annual maintenance check is included in Fix-It 24/7’s Club Membership.

What are some tell-tale signs for needing a routine check on my HVAC system? If it smells like something is burning once your HVAC system has been turned on or if your system is not reaching the desired temperature, call Fix-It 24/7.


Save on HVAC repair while increasing the life of your unit with routine service checks. These checks will lower your energy costs and alleviate stress about potential breakdowns. Be proactive rather than reactive!

How often should my air filter be changed?

The filtration of a system is crucial to the lifespan. The dust in your home must go somewhere and oftentimes it collects on the motor components of a system which starts to wear it down. HVAC filters from a general retailer need to be changed once a month and don’t filter out dirt properly.


Air filtration with Fix-it 24/7 enhances the life of a system and improves indoor air quality. During a routine system check, technicians will change out your filter with an advanced filter which lasts up to six months and has better filtration.

Electric fireplaces are not the central heating source of the home but rather a way to elevate a space. There is a diminished level of heat in electric fireplaces. During the summertime, you might want to wind down by sitting next to a fire, but the thought of it being any hotter is insufferable. Simply turn on your fireplace without the heat. An electric fireplace allows you to be satisfied with the appearance of a fire while ensuring maximum comfort in your home.

Tommy Priester Priester's Custom Contracting

How do you maintain good relationships with your clients?

The answer to this question is twofold. We have what I call an “open book policy.” When we are building a client’s home, we open a checking account specifically for that client. There is no room for misunderstanding about where their money is being spent. The other way we maintain a good relationship is by telling the truth at all times. I find it more simple to just tell the truth. Too often you’ll find contractors lying about the time frame, materials, and workmanship. Telling the truth to a client can go a long way.

Quintessentially Charleston Built in 1796, this home in Charleston’s Historic District has been expertly re-designed yet preserved, washed in paint colors formulated precisely for this neighborhood. Written by Micaela Arnett | Photography by Margaret Wright Project by Sherwin-Williams®

ecause of the rich history and architecture of downtown Charleston, it is under the jurisdiction of the Board of Architectural Review (BAR), which highly regulates all historic structures on the basis of preservation. What does this mean for historic homeowners? Any design updates, especially paint colors, must be approved prior to a project taking place. The good news? Sherwin-Williams worked with a group of dedicated preservationists to create the Historic Charleston Collection™, a 48-color palette with prior approval from the BAR. This gives downtown homeowners more freedom in selecting their own paint colors and guidance on their other color options. The collection of vibrant paint colors is meant to emphasize historic architecture and enhance new builds

106 • CH+D • Winter 2024

in a way which nods to the past with design relevance. Different paint finishes like semi or high-gloss can help enhance woodwork and trim, especially in a historic home painted in colors relevant to its nature. Paint color extraordinaire and renowned interior designer, Megan Molten of Megan Molten Interiors worked alongside this particular homeowner in the heart of Charleston’s Historic District with SherwinWilliams Charleston palette in hand. “The nice thing about a historic home is that you have separate rooms. Most new projects are one big space,” Megan says. The separation of space allowed for even more color-play, reminiscent of the styles of these homes when they were first built. The first order of business was a full kitchen and bathroom renovation

with new cabinetry and tile installed by David Clifford and countertops supplied by AGM Imports. In terms of choosing paint colors for each room, Megan recommends starting with a standard color like Charleston White (DCR100) to fill the hallways and entryway. The stair railings painted Hitching Post Black (DCR108) is an example of a more historically relevant color choice for this part of the home and pair well with this fresh white. She then starts with the hard finishes for the major renovations like the cabinets, flooring, plumbing fixtures, and lighting as this project’s largest goals were functional upgrades. Once these installations were complete, the paint color selections would begin to inform the rest of the home’s interior design. The homeowner wanted a more traditional-style with accents of contrast and fell in love with Sherwin-

This cool blue shade mixed with a white subway tile backsplash, soapstone countertops, and honed marble checkered flooring combined for a fresh feel that still leans towards traditional. In other areas of the home, decorative elements like layered window treatments by Island Shade Shoppe lend charming personality while improving the home’s privacy and light control. “Wallpaper selections plays a role [in color selection] as well. The dining room in particular impacted the rest of our [paint color] selections,” Megan says. The Sherwin-Williams Historic Charleston Collection™ truly shines on this historic home’s exterior as much as the interior. The classic haint blue ceiling is painted in Piazza Blue (DCR075) while the floors are painted Colleton Woods (DCR115). A third shade, Aged Cobblestone (DCR112), coats the original siding in warm contrast. A charming combination of gas and hanging lanterns from Carolina Lanterns & Lighting make for a cozy entrance and exit. ✴

Seamless Storage Integration A new build on Kiawah Island boasts architectural charm and custom features

Written by Micaela Arnett | Photography by Kelly Parrish

thanks to a collaborative design effort and stunning cabinetry.


ltra-luxe style meets highly practical designs in this home perfected by architect Bill Huey, builder Elliott Hobbs, and interior designer Rebecca Carter of Red Element Design. Together, this team worked alongside Johnnie Barrett, kitchen designer and Pete Munzer, owner of Mount Pleasant Kitchen and Bath to create a luxurious home aesthetic complete with hidden function and elevated style. Each set of cabinetry throughout the home is framed and inset, designed to tie in with the surrounding millwork for a seamless look that mimics the look of historic architecture. These customizations and design considerations made for a far more

custom project than the standard new-build. Typically, a homeowner will select either all custom or all factory finished cabinetry throughout the entire home. In this case, a combination of site-finished and factory-finished cabinetry was the key to success. Pete and Johnnie worked closely with the painters and millworkers to merge the individual elements like trim and cabinets in a way which looks built-in. “We take over where the millworkers can’t and vice versa, like those Murphy Bed pull-out night stands or making the bathroom vanities appear to be furniture-like with leg details,” Pete says, adding, “These are the small details that make a huge difference.”

Johnnie Barrett and Pete Munzer of Mount Pleasant Kitchen and Bath

In the Details By taking the cabinetry all the way to the floor, details which mimic a furniture-style look now enhance the overall design appeal of the kitchen and butler’s pantry.

• Winter • Fall 2024 CH+D CH+D 2022 2023 • 111


(above) These homeowners can now save space without sacrificing comfort with a Murphy Bed which features Mount Pleasant Kitchen and Bath's site-finished cabinetry complete with storage and pull-out side tables.

In the kitchen, a custom-built range station finished on-site by Mount Pleasant Kitchen and Bath features rift cut white oak wood panels which conceal the built-in range hood and spice storage niches. In true material harmony, the same cut of white oak continues on the central island with fully finished cabinet boxes which open to reveal the gorgeous grain.

In the butler’s pantry, countertop appliances are hidden neatly behind pocket doors and above a warming drawer built into the site-finished cabinetry. Pete remarks on the phases of this collaboration saying, “We install the first phase, they install the countertops, we come back, add the doors, they paint, then we come back to add in the hardware that really ties it all together.”

Panel-ready appliances allowed for the disguise of the more utilitarian kitchen staples like the fridge and freezer, which mirrors the look of the inset cabinet pantry on the other side of the sink wall. Though one side is all appliance and the other side is all storage, both sides were designed to appear identical to the other even though they open at different points. “We also built false panels into the entire side panel which encapsulates the fridge and dropped the face frames to the floor for a more furniture style space,” Pete adds.

In the dining room, a custom beverage center with a built-in wine cooler provides the perfect place to host guests. The countertop allows for usable surface space and the base cabinets conceal unused glassware. Decorative legs provide the appearance of a furniturestyle built-in with modern functionality. Mount Pleasant Kitchen and Bath worked closely with the woodworking team to blend their two separate processes into one seamless built-in look. In the study, embrasure doors on either side of the custom-built Murphy Bed

112 • CH+D • Winter 2024

are just the start of the architectural marvels that lie beyond. Mount Pleasant Kitchen and Bath made this room all the more functional with custom bedside table tops that pull out from a drawer on either side of the bed. An entertainment loft upstairs features a custom natural wood top built-in with display storage for books and games. Just down the hall, a guest bathroom complete with custom vanities adds to the function of the guest quarters. Coined the mini-master bathroom, the third floor is home to an even larger bathroom that holds a walk-in shower and a dual vanity for both homeowners. Similarly to the kitchen cabinets, the faces of these were also dropped to the floor but with a bit more embellishment for an elevated vanity appeal. ✴ For more information, call Mount Pleasant Kitchen and Bath at (843) 901-2506 or visit

his home underwent a substantial renovation by the builders behind Watsky & Wieters Construction. The original exterior of the house was uninspiring, and the interiors were lackluster; giving David Watsky and Forest Wieters complete creative freedom in crafting these familyfriendly spaces.

industry has prepared us to do just that in this remodel.” After seeing the initial interior, the client elected to renovate it with design considerations by Robin Ahearn of Charleston Island Rentals. Based on their work on previous projects, there is no doubt this team was the right fit for the project. The collaborative relationship with Robin, who staged the home, shines through in the design of each room with personal touches of color and décor. “We operate in a principled fashion while executing high-end results. We communicate effectively and complete the job efficiently.

The small things are extremely important to us,” David explains, adding, “I love the creative aspect of my job. I get to scratch my ambitious side.” From top to bottom, this custom renovation includes charming and hospitable updates while still maintaining a coastal feel. The updated living room is now the heart of the home, built as an area meant for gathering around the new electric fireplace encased in a wood paneled surround. The furniture accents the fireplace and encourages family connection. Books, organized by spine, are displayed on an invisible floating shelf which adds a pop of color to this living space.

A lush, enclosed outdoor space makes all the difference in this newly renovated home. As experienced builders, David and Forest want to respect the home’s age and architectural style while giving the exterior a face-lift. The exterior doors, screens, wooden posts, and rails were replaced to make the area more welcoming and up-to-date cosmetically in addition to its many custom-built upgrades. ✴

Brothers of Brownswood A complete landscape redesign with a carefully selected plant palette is combined with functional hardscape elements and ambient outdoor lighting to revitalize this older home.


ot an inch of this yard was left untouched after this third generation landscape design team completed the job. In the initial walk-through, Brownswood Nursery & Landscape’s design-build firm assessed the homeowner’s needs for both aesthetics and function. As a company that grows many of the plants they incorporate into designs at their own local nursery, this team’s work is hallmarked by beginning with the end in mind. For this home in particular, they hadn’t had much lawn maintenance, much less landscape design. “There were a number of access issues from the front

118 • CH+D • Winter 2024

to the back of the home,” Ryan Watkins of Brownswood Nursery & Landscape says. Without a patio or walkway, these homeowners were left to walk through dirt when coming in and out of their home and had no place to entertain outdoors. The need for a variety of hardscapes led the project’s design in a way which made this lawn easier to traverse and enjoy visually. Ryan says, “We take the design process very seriously. These are not inanimate objects. Plants need just the right amount of water and sunlight to thrive.” Once the hard facts of drainage, access, and overall aesthetics are determined, the design team

at Brownswood gathers data on-site to conduct a proper soil and sun analysis. When the results from the lab are in, the homeowner is invited to their local nursery where the team will walk through the specific plantings, both native and non-native, drawn up in this homeowner’s plan. “It’s important for the homeowner to see what we are suggesting before we ever break ground,” Ryan adds. Once plant selections are homeowner approved, both 2D and 3D renderings of the project are shared with the client, just like any other construction process. Ryan often hears from homeowners, “I just keep watching the video over and over,” as they eagerly anticipate the final result of their landscape project. The team will even submit their designs to the HOA or ARB to ensure all plans are approved prior to the start of the project for a seamless timeline. The landscape design team worked to solve the pathway issues for these homeowners by designing a hardscape area of permeable, multi-use Belgard Aqualine 3 pc. pavers in color Hatteras. This allows for a sturdy place to park or keep clear for gathering and entertainment purposes. The walkway on the side of the home features gray Techo-Bloc Grande Smooth pavers in a geometric design. “There is a concrete base between each paver integrated into the walkway for a more natural and less formal look.

(right) 3 pc. stone pavers fit together securely to form the new patio and parking area. The pavers are spaced to allow drainage rather than water run-off.

This style is whimsical, yet casual,” Drew Stevens says. With bricks found on-site, the design team was able to incorporate them into the entryway for a sustainable way to free-up some landscape space. To amplify the natural beauty of this new landscape, the Brownswood team installed low-voltage outdoor lighting with Kichler Centennial Brass Lights. “Ultimately, we like to bring people outside so they can enjoy their property at night,” Ryan says. Landscape lighting also extends the enjoyment of a landscape from the inside of the home, adding to calming night-time ambiance after the sun goes down. “We want to draw you to enjoy your landscape from any point in your day,” Ryan says, adding, “Part of what we do with landscape design is living art.” ✴

Historic Fusion A local builder updated this historic Sullivans Island property seamlessly with new additions while the historic integrity of its original structure remained.


historic renovation requires acute planning and approvals prior to any construction taking place, especially on Sullivans Island. Like many areas in Charleston, this island community upholds a deep respect for its historic buildings. By ensuring the proper protocols needed for restoration are considered, they can work to keep the charm and add an inventive perspective among upgrades.

Construction. Greg St. Pierre and his team, including Phillip Brooks, worked to maintain both the original interior and exterior of the home, while building a 1,600 sq ft addition to the rear of the property. The new space includes a primary bedroom and ensuite, spacious family room, garage, pool, and an open kitchen. Blending the two structures, one historic and one new, took thoughtful work between all members of the team.

This home was brought back to life, adding modern elements that were built seamlessly into the original structure with thanks to the collaborative team of Beau Clowney Architects and St. Pierre

“You can see the line of delineation from the historic to the new construction here,” Greg says, pointing to where the new exterior siding begins on the addition. Because of their experience in

Phillip Brooks and Greg St. Pierre of St. Pierre Construction

working with traditional building materials, St. Pierre Construction was able to cohesively meld the old with the new, keeping the relevant charm of the home. At the start of the project, St. Pierre Construction had to lift and relocate the entire home, while carefully preserving the original structure. “The original portion had to be moved to ensure the new design would fit within the parameters of the existing lot,” Phillip states. Greg adds, “The integrity of the existing structural foundation was not sufficient. Using hydraulic jacks, we were able to raise the house and rebuild the foundation with steel I-beams to better support the entire home, including the original masonry fireplaces." On the exterior facade, “The front porch columns, doors, windows and most of the siding on the taller portion are all original.” Phillip says. Repurposing the existing French doors, windows with glass and the classic siding profile, helped preserve the style of the home and give it a nod to the past. At the back of the home, the original guest house served as a cobbler’s shop in the early 1900s and had several renovations throughout the years. “We removed a portion of the cottage that had been added

in the recent years and took time to preserve the traditional elements within,” Greg says. The home’s interior received as much care with preservation as it did on the outside. Rooms lined with original beadboard, antique heart pine flooring, and masonry fireplaces and chimneys were restored to their original beauty by St. Pierre Construction. Classic archways and historic trim profiles retain the charm and warmth of the time-honored home. “The architect, Beau Clowney, and designer Sarah-Hamlin Hastings took great care to keep the home’s final design in the same traditional style in which it was originally built,” Greg shares. ✴

Locally-Made Cabinetry The owners of this recently renovated Mount Pleasant home enlisted the help of a local custom cabinet maker that brought their unique ideas to cabinet customizations.


aving worked with Jay Miller of HWC Custom Cabinetry and their design team on previous custom cabinet projects, this time around was totally collaborative. The client proudly claims, “Whenever I had an idea for the cabinets, I would sketch it down and share it with my husband. He would question the purpose of writing down all my crazy ideas. I always assured him, don’t worry, Jay can do it.” People often assume that choosing the cabinetry for a home is a simple task, but the process involved in purchasing custom cabinetry is more involved than making a few selections and writing a deposit check. 126 • CH+D • Winter 2024

Custom cabinetry is an investment; it’s worth spending more time and effort on the forefront to ensure the styles selected are the ones you’ll want years later. With a little extra planning and a lot of communication between general contractor, Jeff Pritchard of Trellis Residential, the builder, the client, and their team, HWC Custom Cabinetry exceeded expectations yet again. While many clients tend to start their renovation process with the selection of appliances, this homeowner led with specific design elements like their cabinetry. They elected to conceal the refrigerator with cabinet panels to make

PROJECT FILES it blend seamlessly with the other oakdyed cabinet fronts. These push-to-open cabinets have no hardware, creating a minimalistic look. Knowing this family loves to grill, the HWC team designed custom deep storage cabinets to hold the outdoor grill equipment. The lower cabinets also have custom-built drawer accessories to hold all of the appliances and utensils, freeing up counter space. Metal frame doors are used for the upper cabinets to showcase the glassware and bring a fresh, light look to the space. Another fantastic kitchen customization is the white oak countertop fabricated by HWC Custom Cabinetry which is something they do not typically do. The same material makes up the custom range hood. These personalized

additions add another surprise element to this already-striking kitchen. The harmonious cabinetry with sleek appliances makes this kitchen every homeowner’s dream. Looking to make a simple yet stylish statement in an otherwise drab room, the client opted to add a pop of color to the cabinets in the laundry room. Painted in Northern Contours’ Aloe SuperMatte, these slow-to-close cabinets have a low sheen and fine finish. Iron hardware installed by HWC Custom Cabinetry forms a cohesive look. There were no limitations to the homeowner’s creativity for this project. Much time was spent in HWC Custom Cabinetry’s showroom to ensure all of the selections blend seamlessly. The most challenging part of the process

was creating beveled edge cabinet doors for the primary bath, but Jay made it happen. These beveled edge cabinets are a detail that makes the look. This custom-build features a split floating vanity connected by an engineered wood veneer with a silver ebony finish. The drawers are notched around the plumbing fixtures with edge pulls for hardware. The homeowners wanted to make contemporary design choices that are still traditional to keep in mind a future buyer. ✴

elevated home features four levels which boast expansive views of the Kiawah River through windows flooded with natural light. This home’s architecture was designed specifically to indulge the homeowners in the luxuries of indoor/ outdoor living.

Clean and contemporary cabinets lend themselves to a fresh and coastal kitchen aesthetic. A full-wall tile backsplash is a durable and splash-proof design choice that sets the scene for the old-growth cypress details which punctuate the range hood and the central island base.

Opportunities to combine both scenes abound at every sliding glass door which leads to various porch levels running the length of the build. The deck that spans the main living area frames the kitchen, dining, and living rooms with views of the marsh and endless island vibes.

"We enjoyed working with unique wood species such as old growth cypress on this project,” John says. The main living space feels warm and inviting with its natural cypress ceiling accent which sings in harmony with the natural stone fireplace.

Organic materials detail the kitchen built as a functional gathering space.

Beautifully Bianco A kitchen remodel on Lake Murray features durable, affordable, and high-quality quartz countertops that mimic the coveted look of marble.


ew-age remodels call for durable yet beautiful countertops that won’t blow the entire budget. For homeowners who sought a larger kitchen and dining area, the demolition of an existing wall took precedent in the making of this beautifully updated farmhouse kitchen. Lower Lake Construction reconfigured the layout to include an exposed brick range wall, a beverage station, and an expansive central island which all feature custom-fabricated countertops installed by The Granite Guys, LLC with quartz countertops sourced by Easy Stones, a local stone supplier with ten other locations nationwide.

134 • CH+D • Winter 2024

Keen on the look of white marble like most, these homeowners knew actual marble for their home on the lake was not their best bet because marble can stain and scratch easily, especially in the kitchen. As a wholesale supplier, the team at Easy Stones works alongside fabricators at the North Charleston showroom to choose the best material for the homeowner’s intended application. For this project, Camila Jackson of Easy Stones and Jamie Carter of The Granite Guys, LLC selected a range of options to meet the needs of the homeowners with a goal to find a countertop material in a cool white shade that was both beautiful and durable.

(opposite) Shadow White quartz countertops with an eased edge complete the look of this newly renovated farmhouse-style home on the lake.

After homeowner review, 3cm Bianco Volakas stone quartz in Shadow White proved more practical for their aesthetic wants and budget needs. “Engineered stone mimics marble in the look so it’s very popular among homeowners who want the look but not the highmaintenance or cost of marble,” Jamie says. In this case, about two slabs of quartz covered the job of a centrally located island, range wall surface area, and a wet bar. “This stone is certainly a best-seller for its look, availability, and affordability. We always have it in stock for this reason,” Camila adds. With this particular stone type, fabricated countertops can usually be installed

delicate grey veins running through the stone. This material is extremely durable compared to granite and marble which may scratch and stain easily due to the porous nature of natural varieties.

Shadow White quartz is man-made and mimics the natural beauty of authentic marble as it has been manufactured to reveal a consistent surface pattern for ease of fabrication, installation, and design harmony. Paired with eased-edge profiles, this home’s new quartz countertops make for a timeless appearance in the new kitchen.

Quartz is all the more appreciated for style and function in spaces like kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. Easy Stones has a huge warehouse to peruse with exclusive rights to several slab colors, flooring stones, sinks, and decorative stones allowing customers access to some of the most unique products found in the world. ✴

or these vacationers, they decided to make a permanent residence here in South Carolina. When they purchased this home on Kiawah Island, they were happy with the layout for the most part, but it needed more storage space. They called on Classic Remodeling & Construction’s Bob Flemming to assess the current state of the home and to see what could be done to make the most of this space. Water damage impacted most of the first floor, which required a complete resand and refinish of the existing hardwoods to bring them back up to shape for the rest of the remodel. Bob then handed the project off to designer Gianna Sweet who worked with the homeowners to determine their aesthetic selections for their new primary

bathroom and kitchen renovation. “In this case, there was a water leak so there was a lot of damage to the hardwood floors in the kitchen, dining room, and hallway. They liked the original floor plan but wanted to update the look,” project designer Gianna says. In any kitchen or bathroom renovation, plumbing fixture replacements and tile selections play a major role in the project. Gianna’s knowledge and understanding of product and design makes her an incredible asset to a homeowner in the aesthetic planning phase. Over the course of sixteen weeks, the team of designers and contractors at Classic Remodeling & Construction transformed this home into a space that was all the more

functional as a second home for the owners who wished to spend more time on the island. The newly renovated kitchen features classic shaker-style cabinets designed to feel modern but still reminiscent of a classic Charleston home, like the beadboard light rail below the upper cabinetry. The original wet bar was removed, expanding the range wall with usable space for the built-in fullheight pantry which replaced it. A full-wall backsplash of porcelain tile emphasizes the warmth of the Corian Verano Gold quartz countertops. The counter-depth fridge was also a thoughtful design consideration. Gianna adds, “This is one of our go-to looks because when you can’t necessarily hide an appliance, you want to at least integrate it into the design somehow.” A new wet bar built on the adjacent side of the kitchen now houses a temperature-controlled 138 • CH+D • Winter 2024

wine cooler and glass-front cabinets for bar accessories. These new storage features were designed to integrate the all-new stainless steel appliances with a contrasting combination of champagne bronze hardware. “This is a modern beach house, but not too contemporary,” Gianna says, adding, “Colorwise, we tried to go a little more modern without being too contemporary. The neutral backsplash with the blue and white cabinetry was a good mix.” Of course, with many renovations, it is not smooth sailing from start to finish. What began as a cosmetic renovation quickly turned into a full-gut when termite damage was discovered along the bathroom’s exterior wall. Luckily, this was something the contractors were more than familiar with as builders local to Charleston. Once the exterior wall was rebuilt, the expansive design began to take form.

The original bathroom was taken down to the studs and custom-built vanities and cabinetry scale the new wall with an integrated window seat. The homeowners were eager for a larger walk-in shower, a soaking tub, and a water closet. To emphasize these new features, Gianna chose a large-format honed porcelain tile flooring in Ocean Blue to make the space feel more grand. Similar to the kitchen backsplash, porcelain tile was chosen for its undulating pattern and hand-cut appearance. Gianna shares, “These are the material selections that make a design all the more powerful.” Thanks to these highimpact renovations, this home couldn’t be more perfect for its owners coming home to a forever-vacation full of practical function in coastal form. ✴ For more information, call Classic Remodeling & Construction at (843) 763-3297 or visit

Modern Storage Systems A historic home lacking kitchen storage received a full revamp of its pantry and cabinets with custom storage systems designed to fit their unique needs.


istoric homes are charming, that’s for sure, but when it comes to storage? Yikes. This was just the issue at hand for these homeowners before they called on the custom storage team at ShelfGenie. Storage designer Julie Blumetti first met at the home to discuss the ways this kitchen could function better given the space constraints. She worked to design a variety of storage elements that would fit their needs, primarily to maximize the storage in their existing tall, deep, and narrow pantry space. Julie’s “right-hand” Brittany George adds, “This project was unique because it offered us an opportunity to go vertically with

140 • CH+D • Winter 2024

their storage. It’s a standard challenge in these historic homes to create more storage space in tiny areas and our custom solutions made that possible.” Because ShelfGenie’s custom storage solutions provide homeowners with access to the full depth of their storage spaces, the team is able to create systems that take full advantage of the space provided. With the addition of full-extension glide outs that hold up to one hundred pounds each, these homeowners are now able to utilize every inch of their pantry with easy access at every point, top to bottom. Even the smallest details like slope shelves designed to prevent paper towels from falling is considered in the design of bespoke storage systems by ShelfGenie.

Brittany George of ShelfGenie

“Not only does their pantry contain storage for canned goods, but there are also separate spaces to store cleaning tools and small appliances. Julie opted for a stationary shelf at the very top of the pantry so these homeowners weren’t losing that storage space. A glide-out wouldn’t make sense at the very top of the pantry as this is a place where homeowners typically store seasonal items,” Brittany says.

easy access and improved organization.” There is no storage space too small for ShelfGenie, especially in a historic home. With their custom designed solutions, modern conveniences like vertical and glide-out storage can revolutionize the most peculiar of spaces for ultimate function, without the high cost of replacing the existing cabinetry altogether. ✴

On the range wall, each base cabinet features a slight difference in design based on what these homeowners wanted to store. The right hand cabinetry includes standard glide-outs for pots and pans whereas the base cabinets feature custom dividers that allow for vertical storage instead of horizontal. “With this solution, a homeowner can extend the shelf all the way out to the end of counter for full access to the back of the cabinet. This allows you to pull the item you’re looking for right when you need it,” Brittany shares.

For more information, call ShelfGenie at (843) 890-0542 or visit

The upper cabinetry now functions with a spice tower designed as a custom solution to fit the depth of the exact items it stores. Three separate tower depths provide a variety of configuration options for organization even beyond spices. Brittany adds, “This family has a lot of spices, but they also have a lot of other items they wanted to store here, too. These [shelves] are modular, which means they can be easily adjusted should they need to store something larger. These spice towers are also installed at a bit of a slant for

Labor of Love A local landscape team proudly completed an outdoor transformation in James Island which turned a seemingly ordinary yard into a multi-faceted, experiential outdoor living space.


his landscape project is a true labor of love for the Charleston Landscape team. Currie Bates, new owner of this landscape contracting firm, is thankful to have had the opportunity to work on this landscape installation with her uncle, Chris Reese, the former owner, who passed earlier this year. Chris took pride in his work, and this project is no different. “The entire team and myself are incredibly grateful to be able to carry on his legacy through the beautiful outdoor spaces that we continue to create,” Currie mentions while recalling this treasured memory. Upon visiting this clients’ waterfront home, the award-winning design, installation, and landscape contracting firm’s vision became clear. “We took a 142 • CH+D • Winter 2024

less-is-more approach on this project. We didn't want to take away from the natural beauty the lot already had. Our goal was to enhance the property's natural beauty, with a minimalist mindset, while adding a modern take on Lowcountry living,” states Currie. Through the use of drainage systems and hardscape designs this landscape was transformed. The client wanted to enhance the landscape and fix the issues of flooding. Since this home resides on the waterfront, there were drainage concerns; as the lot collects large amounts of water. Charleston Landscape implemented a strategic drainage and irrigation system designed by landscape architect, J.R. Kramer of REMARK Landscape Architecture.

Currie Bates of Charleston Landscape

Thanks to this gorgeous pool designed and built by Aquatica Pools & Spas, the homeowner has a breathtaking view of the Arthur Ravenel Bridge. A custom drainage system is located under the pool deck while raised planters surround the pool and add a seasonal pop of color. As you drive up, you’ll notice the natural beauty this property encompasses. Charleston Landscape installed a custom-built driveway and apron with Savannah Grey brick and Pennsylvania decorative gravel, as well as custom-built brick columns with gas lanterns. Meticulously placed brick stairs frame the entrance. To dial up the detailing, colorful flowers in brick planters punctuate this home’s exterior. “Our team has a high level of craftsmanship and expertise in the field, one of the many reasons the client chose to work with us. The homeowner wasn't looking to hire different contractors to complete different aspects of this project. With Charleston Landscape, the client was able to reduce stress by having it all under one roof and by having us complete all the scheduling and coordination of the different trades on-site,” states Currie. This landscape was curated with modern sensibility and a spirit of delight. Charleston Landscape was called in to bring to life all the outdoor aspects of this project: site preparation, drainage and irrigation systems, landscape and hardscape installation, and a fence installment. ✴

The whimsy light fixtures suspend over a stone countertop adding a fun element; this space designed to be anything but bland. The counter height stools blend effortlessly with the natural stone countertops. Tracy carefully placed the kitchen essentials to combine function with beauty, making a typically bland area of the home fun-loving. The carefully curated ladies lounge is perfect for entertaining friends for a “GNO.” The client wanted more of a swanky lounge area than a traditional sitting room. The combination of

Inspired by his wife Alicia's Polish heritage, the Swangers pivoted towards crafting a new potato-based vodka by creating their own family recipe. Their goal was simple: Create a high-quality, stand-out spirit in an industry where quantity often eclipses quality. Sweet Grass Vodka soon emerged as a testament to the Swanger's commitment to excellence and the brand grew quickly with the opening of their flagship tasting room and business headquarters: The Sweetgrass Lounge.

This passion and zest for life is true to the Sweet Grass Vodka brand and deeply connects this business partnership’s success. For their goals of going nationwide, even global, Jarrod and Jeremy agree, “If we keep doing exactly what we’re doing and keep patience, we’ll get there no doubt. We don’t want to push too fast. We want to let it grow as it needs to grow.” Jarrod adds, “ We’re authentic to our core. I’ll brag on Jeremy, he’s very authentic in everything he does. People can tell quickly if a brand is phony.

Malatich Cochran Design Beth Cochran & Laurin Malatich This home was designed around an open concept divided by strategically styled yet separate zones for both entertainment and relaxation. The phrase their clients used to describe their vision was “a nod to the sea” which informed the design selections and color palette throughout the rest of the home. The coastal feel was emphasized by a shiplap stairwell, trim painted Benjamin Moore's White Dove, and walls awash in Benjamin Moore's Wind’s Breath. Woven jute materials add warmth to the white performance fabric upholstery on the sectional sofa that sits upon tile floors laid to mimic the look of natural wood. The wet bar area features four gathering chairs in blue velvet paired with a scalloped coffee table with a glass top under a silver leaf pendant which matches the lounge area lighting.

Simply Curated Designs Amber Jackson The expansive floor-to-ceiling windows and doors let nature lead the way in this home, especially in the bedrooms. Neutrals and different shades of blue inform the color scheme while rich wood tones and stone accents add visual interest among custom drapery and textured furniture pieces in this space designed by Amber Jackson, interior designer and owner of Simply Curated Designs.

“If you're designing your primary bedroom, don't settle for basic furniture alone. Consider adding lighting, window treatments, pillows, accessories, and accent furnishings to create a one-of-a-kind space that reflects your personality. These elements will transform your room into a cozy retreat that's uniquely yours,” Amber says. This perspective was exactly what the homeowners desired in this coastal home. White bed linens are a crisp and fresh way to ground the layered textures of this bedroom’s different decorative materials. Simple window treatments allow for natural light to pervade this space during the day with easy-to-adjust shades for a custom ambiance.

One Coast Design Michelle Woolley Sauter These homeowners worked alongside One Coast Design to select the finish combinations and material selections in their new custom home out of the gate. Owner and lead interior designer Michelle Woolley Sauter says, "Our design ethos centers on rejuvenating spaces, embracing timelessness and sustainable practices." With this driving philosophy, Michelle designed each room with high style and functionality in mind. In a kitchen, "You can't go wrong with a veined quartz countertop mixed with white shaker style cabinets," Michelle says. For homeowners who wanted to avoid a design that might come off too trendy, Michelle was sure to inject some gentle personality through classic subway tile and mixed metal hardware for the plumbing fixtures. A sleek stainless steel range was also a classic pick that will be in style for ages. The woven pendant lighting above the kitchen island was the finishing touch that made all of the difference in this design.

“We believe the design process is about discovering your balance of style, comfort and function. The spaces you spend time in should reflect your distinct personality,” says Brittany Hanlon and Stephanie Gannon, owners and lead interior designers of Hayes + Nash Design Co. This rustic coastal-inspired powder bath embraces the charm of Charleston even in a tiny space. Gray botanical-print wall coverings set the tone in this mixed material space complete with a furniture-style vanity that commands the attention of the whole room. Sleek black wood fronts stand up on metallic legs that tie in the rest of the material contrast of the space. The marble countertop adds a polished edge next to plumbing fixtures and hardware while wall-mounted sconces illuminate the sea shell embellished mirror.

Riverside Designers Shay Patterson "This home is a unique blend of classic and traditional design with a fresh use of color and texture. For this guest suite, the client wanted to infuse her traditional aesthetic with a colorful, bohemian feel. While cohesive with the rest of the home, this space brings some unexpected fun and color for their guests to enjoy. From the textured wallpaper walls to the custom drapery tassel trim, every detail was thought out to achieve this unique blend of styles. The vintage rug and woven accents add interest and warmth that perfectly offset the classic pieces. Every room in this home is full of details with surprises around every corner and this guest room is no exception," says Shay Patterson of Riverside Designers.

Indigo Alley Interiors Amandra Kelly & Michelle Beck This space is a perfect example of the personality of the client showing through the design. “Our goal is to design a space that our clients are excited to come home to. We are inspired by our clients and how they are going to use the space. We strongly believe a space should reflect the people living and working there,” says interior design duo Amandra Kelly and Michelle Beck. For this project, it was important that the room’s design didn’t lean too much in one design direction. Their client preferred a slightly traditional style with coastal undertones. This design duo began with the hard selections first, opting for wide-plank white oak hardwood flooring and fresh white trim. These basic yet impactful elements paired with cool toned accents create a backdrop for a prep and dining space of universal appeal.

Demi Ryan Interior Design Firm Michelle Murphy “Bold, colorful, organic, and unexpected is how we describe our design philosophy. We love to layer many styles to find our client's unique aesthetic,” says Michelle Murphy, owner and lead interior designer of Demi Ryan Interior Design Firm. This homeowner desired a lively spare bedroom for their guests with Asian influence and a lot of color. The mix of soft organic textures and geometric shapes paved the way for the bright pops of green and pink that liven the design. Pattern play with a mix of shapes also contributes to this design scheme. This vibrant yet luxurious bedroom is grounded by the textured grasscloth wallpaper by Lee Jofa. The cane bed frame introduces contrasting texture while the lively nightstands provide energizing color illuminated Kelly Wearstler table lamps. Daring design pairings like Schumacher’s frette work tape on custom silk curtains emphasize the colorplay between the Kravet bedding and beaded chandelier.

She worked with this in mind to create a beautifully personal kitchen space with the help of Mulberry Millworks. This space is both luxurious and comfortable with a reflective full-wall tile backsplash in a herringbone pattern that holds the solid maple custom cabinets painted in Benjamin Moore’s Vintage Vogue. The custom cabinets boast brass knobs and pulls from TopKob Kinney Collection which complements the brass plumbing fixtures positioned above the range and apron-front sink built into the central kitchen island styled with rattan barstools.

CK Design Group Christy Kohler A harmonious balance of modern and urban chic, accented with family heirlooms, reflects the lifestyle of the well-travelled homeowners, and served as the inspiration for this custom home. “A good designer selects materials and pieces that represent the personality of the client,” says Christy, adding, “In this custom, luxury residence, we used warm neutrals and the owner’s love of green, to create a chic and glamorous yet comfortable home, with a Deco-revival undertone.” The stylish, inviting living room features a modern, linear fireplace, sumptuous velvets and chenilles, white oak flooring, an onyx coffee table with satin brass leg frame, a warm bamboo light fixture, and artisan accessories and antiques. Christy incorporates design principles and unique details, to create exceptional spaces, with a consistent feel and flow throughout. “Design is an amazingly, exciting process where one decision unfolds to the next, and so on. No two projects will ever be the same,” Christy says.

The Village Social Kaitlyn Gentry For these homeowners on Isle of Palms, their new home needed a coastal and classic feel with design elements that would stand the test of time. Kaitlyn Gentry, interior designer and co-owner of The Village Social was able to create a design scheme that embraced all of their wants and needs in a refreshing kitchen design. Kaitlyn’s material selections included wide plank white oak hardwoods, fresh white shaker-style cabinetry, and a decorative range hood to match. She chose to tile the backsplash halfway to meet the shiplap wall panels that cover the rest of the space. Brass linear pulls mirror the finish of the wallmounted pot filler above the range. The vintage Turkish runner sourced from Zuma grounds the space with a gentle reflection of the surrounding color palette.

Striped Lemon Interior Design Andrea Dussault “This bright and airy master suite is a blend of colors and texture against a white backdrop that offers character and interest,” says Andrea Dussault, owner and lead designer of Striped Lemon Interior Design. Walls awash in Benjamin Moore's Super White allowed for the bright and clean aesthetic because of its lack of blue undertones. “It’s perfect if you’re looking for a pure white,” Andrea says. Modern, clean linens paired with patterns and fun fabric work together to create a relaxing retreat full of personality. An important element in this bedroom was the artwork and other unique accessories that make the space more personal and reflective of the client. Andrea emphasizes, “My philosophy around design has always centered around bringing joy, harmony, and balance to my clients' homes, so they can fully enjoy the beauty and functionality of their living space. My goal is to listen to how my clients live in the space so I can create something not only beautiful, but functional for them.”

Paint Colors of 2024 This year's lineup of fresh paint colors has us ready to revamp our most lived-in spaces with the moodlifting energy of natural hues from the industry's leading color experts.


Sherwin-Williams: Color of the Year "Ascend to total tranquility with a breezy, blissful blue. Upward is a sunny-day shade that can be found when we slow down, take a breath, and allow the mind to clear. This color of classic comfort is designed for spaces brimming with positive energy, creative thinking, and total contentment."

Blue Nova

Benjamin Moore: Color of the Year

“Elevate the everyday and expand horizons through juxtaposed color that is sure to inspire. With Blue Nova leading the way, depth and intrigue are balanced by an undercurrent of reassurance. This alluring mid-tone features an enchanting duality, capturing the spotlight with endlessly classic appeal.”


Photography Provided by Benjamin Moore

PPG: Color of the Year “A fresh, warm hue, the 2024 color of the year is anything but yellow. Limitless contains both the power of a primary color and the essence of a neutral to support both cool and warm tones. It even has the power to stand on its own.”

For more information, call Spectrum Paint at (843) 722-1056 or visit PPG1091-3

How do you drink your Sweet Grass Vodka?

We think the best way to drink Sweet Grass is a simple Sweet Grass & soda with a lime, or a classic martini.

What keeps you inspired? Favorite date night spot?

If not The Sweetgrass Lounge, then definitely a staycation at Wild Dunes Resort.

Our son, our family, and our team.
