EDITOR’S NOTE

G athering Places

As the CH+D team put this issue together, it was clear from the homeowners we met, the local companies we interviewed, and the answers we received that the kitchen is vitally centric to the rest of the home. The theme of gathering is clear and pervasive throughout this issue, especially in our own house, as our magazine family recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of our publication. Whether you’re searching our “Tasteful Kitchens of Charleston” feature and bookmarking pages as a source of insight into your next project, ogling the pages of our Project Files section to read the stories of other local homeowners, or even just learning how to set the table in our “Learning the Lingo” article, I hope you find the perfect inspiration as you flip through each page of this issue.

W

hen I think of winter, I reminisce about some of the best times of the year, of time with family celebrating the holidays, bringing in the new year, and always, always eating more than my fair share of my mother’s homemade sugary treats. Dreaming about those melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookies, or decadent cheesecakes reminds me of time in the kitchen, helping her cook, while eating half of the ingredients before they make it into the oven. At its heart, this issue is all about that place where the family gathers; the kitchen. Regardless of what “They” say, I say food is the way to everyone’s heart. And what better way to spend time with loved ones than in a beautiful kitchen?

Another kitchen that has our whole staff drooling over its stunning colors, clean lines, and “pura vida” vibes is the center of our cover star, Chelsea Meissner’s amazingly bright and relaxed James Island home. When she opened the door to our CH+D crew and showed us around, it was obvious that her kitchen is a place of congregation for her friends and family as well. But don’t take my word for it—check out her amazing home and story of adventures and local celebrity status for yourself. And because pictures can’t always adequately showcase every detail, we invite you to the Charleston Home + Design Show this January to actually touch and feel a vast number of products, to meet with local professionals who are trustworthy and talented, and to glean even more ideas for the place you call home.

MEET + GREET

One Stop Shop Emily Floyd, founder of Castleton Marketplace, chats with Charleston Home + Design magazine about her vision for the store and how she works with local vendors to curate an ideal shopping experience.

What brought Castleton Marketplace to Charleston? As a College of Charleston alumna, I couldn’t think of a more perfect place for Castleton to call home. Innovative and creative small businesses are forming everyday with locals and tourists alike wanting to support them. Now that Castleton is near the one-year mark, it keeps proving to be a great decision.

How did you get started in this industry? I really wanted to create something different. Shopping has always been one of my favorite hobbies so I have tried to shape the store to a shopper’s taste. We don’t have the concept of “booths” that you commonly think of when multiple sellers are under one roof with a vendor mall concept. The small business owners that are located within our building have specific and unique product lines so repetitive merchandise is rare and everything is combined into vignettes in their own space.

What services and products does Castleton Marketplace offer to customers? Castleton Marketplace has two types of customers. Our first 60 • CH+D • Winter 2019

type of customer is our everyday shopper who wants to experience something that they haven’t seen in other shops within the area. From startups to second location seekers, our building layout allows for a complete flex space for their own “boutique.” The businesses we showcase can be small pop-ups for 6 months or longer, allowing for the store merchandise to rotate with seasons or on a need basis and be completely different every time a customer visits. Second, are our small business entrepreneurs, local or out of town, who would like to establish their first brick and mortar retail location within the Charleston area.

What can a customer expect to find when they visit Castleton Marketplace? When you walk into Castleton Marketplace, you will find everything curated for the home! From interior designers establishing a vignette showcasing their favorite brands and style, to a custom furniture craftsman or a fully-stocked soy candle workshop, we have a vast variety of items to peruse. And with new arrivals everyday, there is always a new piece of décor to discover.

For more information, call Castleton Marketplace at (843) 422-3769 or visit castletonmarketplace.com.

HE SAID / SHE SAID

Expertly Curated Window Treatments Adam Epstein and Arika Dimar of Budget Blinds go head-to-head on their favorite window treatment styles.

He Said: Adam Said: I personally prefer shutters over roman shades due to their curb appeal (both interior and exterior) and their durability. I like the larger louvers because they let more light into a home.

Adam Said: I am an automated shades person. Before putting automated shades in my own home, I was never a tech person but they’ve now become my favorite feature. I can sit and watch football and not have to worry about being bothered by the glare, I just tell Alexa to lower my shades.

Adam Said: I love the automated roller shades. They have a clean line and simple appeal to them. I also prefer to have a valance with it to help bring it all together.

She Said: Roman Shades or Shutters?

Automated or Manually Adjusted Treatments?

Type of Automated Window Treatment?

Arika Said: I prefer roman shades. I think they add a timeless and elegant look to almost any area where you display them and with all of the different fabric options, we have something for everyone.

Arika Said: Automated window treatments are cool because you can control your shades from an app. I think that the automated window treatments are great particularly for women who are living alone, because there are safety advantages of being able to control them so easily.

Arika Said: The Lutron automated shades are awesome. Between their efficiency, reputation, and overall reliability you cannot beat them. I love the variety of material options and it’s really great that you can’t hear them moving.

HOMEWORK

At Home With

Liz Baker of Translations Design & Coralberry Cottage Liz loves all things related to design and the home. By day she uses her talents throughout the Lowcountry for her residential architectural firm, Translations Design as well as the coastal-cottage inspired furniture store, Coralberry Cottage. By night, she creates a beautiful, functional home for her family.

1 Unpredictability is a wonderful

feature in a home, and one which Liz tries to incorporate not just in her own, but in every design she works on. These interior windows provide a sneak peek into another room, creating curiosity, and entice guests to continue exploring. While beautiful, the custom Coralberry Cottage signature pieces also encourage everyone to stop and relax.

2 The dining room (which also serves as

a sunroom) was envisioned by Liz to bring just the right amount of “wowfactor,” as well as coziness, to the space by integrating plenty of lighting and a perfectly-scaled barn door entry for style and privacy.

3 Eclectic design is another essential

aspect of Liz’s architectural and interior designs, which she articulates in this room with new furniture made of reclaimed materials, reclaimed wood floors, and an industrial spin with a glass garage door in the adjacent room.

4 Liz’s mantra, “Home is your personal

retreat,” was her goal for her own home and she makes it top priority in every project that she works on to achieve comfort and beauty. She wants to be able to kick her feet up when she gets home and enjoy the aesthetics of her surroundings at the same time. That’s why she chose reclaimed woods blended with soft and cool colors and clean accents, like shiplap walls to create her perfect oasis.

CRAFTED IN CHARLESTON

Cultivating Custom Fabrics Creating one-of-a-kind pieces for each client is the driving force for the team at Jean’s Custom Workroom. The Craftswoman:

Jean Peters, the brain behind Jean’s Custom Workroom, opened her showroom to fulfill her passion for creating a beautiful product and to help clients bring their custom drapery and upholstery dreams to life.

The Craft:

Jean and her team work with clients to provide high-quality and custom drapery, bedding, pillows, slipcovers, upholstery, and window treatments.

Jean’s Backstory:

Photography by Callie Cranford

When Jean was just 12 years old, she began sewing clothes with her grandmother and her passion grew from there. After starting a family, Jean decided to teach herself a new aspect of craft. Her goal was to reinvent the sewing she had been doing in the past. She learned how to create custom draperies and other types of upholsteries. Once her daughter was old enough to drive, Jean opened her showroom.

The Process:

Jean’s process begins when she gets a call from a homeowner or a designer saying they would like to commission a piece. The first step is to take measurements. After she completes the measurements, Jean confirms the next steps with her client or designer. The fabric is ordered from all over, but it is all designer fabric that can’t be found in stores. Once the order is made it takes about six to eight weeks for Jean to wrap up the project; Jean’s Custom Workroom is part of their client’s process from start to finish.

Their Philosophy:

Jean and her team want to ensure that their clients get the perfect product. The team knows that each client is paying for a custom drapery or bedding because they desire a special piece. For more information, call Jean’s Custom Workroom at (843) 225-1669 or visit jeanscustomworkroom.com.

(top) The fabrics used are ordered from a variety of places and are collected in the workroom to create a library of fabric. (middle left) Designer fabrics such as this marble-like pattern can't be found in other fabric stores. (middle right) Jean stresses that no project is too big or too small for her team. (below left) Each product that is commissioned is hand-sewn in the West Ashley showroom. (below right) These purple velvet pillows fit perfectly in their new home.

GREENHOUSE

Custom EcoShell™ Construction When it comes to building a custom house, many homeowners are choosing to build green. One way to do that early in the process is through a type of construction called EcoShell.™ This is a product that creates an air tightness in the structure and helps it maintain healthier indoor air quality. The EcoShell™ panels are often used to build crawl spaces and attics so that mold and mildew growth is blocked from getting into the air, and eventually the homeowner’s

lungs. With a tight structural envelope, there are mechanical systems that can be used to exchange fresh air into the space throughout the day. An added perk for Charleston residents with Insulsteel-built homes is that the premanufactured panels are engineered to withstand up to 220 mph winds. Because of the eco-friendly way that the homes are built, average electric bills for 3,000 square foot homes are lower than many other homes of that size. These houses

are a zero on the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) scale, which means that they qualify as Zero Energy Homes. The homes that Insulsteel constructs are all designed and manufactured in their factory, which also means they aren’t creating extra material waste on the building sites that could potentially end up in landfills. For more information, call Insulsteel at (843) 637-4311 or visit insulsteel.com/green.

Water Efficient Faucets

Photograph Provided by DXV

Homeowners today are considering a multitude of ways that they can make their abode more eco-friendly. Whether that be with the building products they choose, the furniture they include, or the fixtures they select. There are a myriad of options, one of which is water efficient faucets. A particularly efficient brand known as DXV can be found at local retail locations, such as Moluf’s. These fixture brands feature “WaterSense” faucets. “WaterSense” fixtures are high-performing, waterefficient bathroom accessories that help homeowners save water throughout their homes. 72 • CH+D • Winter 2019

“WaterSense” faucets use up to 1.5 gallons per minute which is significantly less than the average faucet. This adjustment reduces the sink’s water flow by at least 30 percent. By using these faucets, homeowners can save at least 70 gallons of water per year. As an added bonus, “WaterSense” faucets meet all of the EPA criteria and will have a special mark on them to show that they are an efficient and officially approved product. For more information, call Moluf’s at (843) 723-4881 or visit molufs.com.

Hurricane-Rated Garage Doors

Photography by Patrick Brickman

Few doors in a home get more use, yet are less appreciated than the garage door. It’s important for homeowners to remember, especially in Charleston’s humid, salty, and hurricane-prone climate, that a home’s garage door can do more than hide the family cars from sight. Installing a hurricane-rated garage door helps protect the envelope of the structure during high-velocity wind storms. Current construction technology used by manufacturers like CHI Overhead Doors, which are installed by local companies, such as All About Garage Doors, can also turn a hurricane-rated garage door into a great source of curb appeal for any home. Models come in all types of styles, from wood-look, to traditional, to carriage-style (which are great for historic homes in the Lowcountry), and can even be customized with different kinds of insulation packages, too, for extra strength and energy efficiency.

“Elite Treated” Trim A home’s beautiful exterior is made complete by quality and long-lasting details, much like an exceptional exterior trim design. These custom trim features can be created from several different types of materials, including the most traditional, yet unique, medium—treated wood. There are numerous ways in which lumber can be treated and transformed into a weather-resistant material, but not all methods are created equal. Consider installing wood treated with a top-of-the-line method or technology to lengthen the life of the wood. Southern Lumber & Millwork has recently trademarked a trim product known as “Elite Treated,” in which the wood product is re-manufactured at Southern Lumber & Millwork’s site to not only create a long-lasting wood trim, but also to provide a quality finish. The wood is encapsulated with a high-quality oil-base primer that soaks into the wood to protect it on all sides from weather and moisture.

LEARNING THE LINGO

Setting The Table

From casual family dinners to dinner parties to special occasions it’s always important to have the perfect place setting. It’s a process that requires attention to detail since you’re following proper table etiquette. Don’t fret; we’re here to break it down.

Placemat:

Napkin & Napkin Ring:

The placemat designates each individual table setting. It’s there to protect the table from water marks, food spills, and even heat damage. It also serves a decorative purpose.

Once seated, a napkin is placed on your lap and isn’t removed until you’re done with your meal. The napkin ring is set to the top left of the setting. After the meal is finished, it’s good manners to pull the napkin through the ring and place it on the table.

Charger:

Silverware:

Chargers, or service plates, are used as a base for the dinner plates and bowls. They are used throughout the courses of the meal and are taken away before desert. Chargers are more commonly used in formal settings.

Like with the dinnerware, always set the table with silverware that is actually going to be used. The silverware is set for use from the outside in; soup, salad, then entrée. Keep in mind, the dinner utensils are bigger than the salad utensils.

Plates & Bowls:

Glasses:

The dinnerware is set in order of how they are eaten, from top to bottom; soup bowl on top, dinner plate on the bottom. However, it’s not necessary to include plates for a course that you won’t be eating.

Depending on the formality of the dinner party, either wine glasses or regular glasses can be used. The water glasses are typically above the knives and then the wine glasses are set right-to-left in the order used.

Taking a Look at the Cost of

Natural Grass Alternatives Replacing natural grass with an evergreen substitute can save homeowners time and money. It also allows them the opportunity to always have a perfectly manicured yard that is sure to provide long-lasting, low-maintenance curb appeal.

A Perfectly Manicured and Tailored Yard The yard is the first thing that people see when they pull up to a house, so it’s important to maintain the exterior. Keeping the lawn mowed, watered, weeded, and drained takes a lot of effort, but luckily there is an alternative; synthetic turf. Homeowners can decide which areas in the yard they want to install synthetic turf to create an enduring, well-manicured space that will save both your wallet and your back. Palmetto Moon Synthetic Turf provides homeowners with over 70 options of turf to choose from to create the perfect space. They install pool turf, pet grass, artificial lawn, recreational turf, and playgrounds.

Healthier Lawn to Help Eliminate Flooding

Save Time and Money on Upkeep

Natural grass is difficult to grow in Charleston. The pH level of the soil in the Lowcountry is not conducive to grass growth and neither is the abundance of oak trees that leach grass-inhibiting components into the soil. Many areas in the Lowcountry are also below sea level, so when it rains, yards will often flood and proper drainage can take a long time. Artificial lawns can drain up to 90 gallons of water per square yard to eliminate flooding. With quick drainage, puddles of water don’t have time to pool, much less provide the perfect breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

Lawn maintenance is also a concern for homeowners, but with an artificial lawn, little work is required. Once the lawn is installed, homeowners cut the cost of a lawn mower and of watering the natural grass. There is also no need for weed whacking or fertilizing; the only upkeep is blowing leaves off with a leaf blower. In addition, synthetic turf is long-lasting and durable.

STORAGE SOLUTIONS Pull-Out Spice Rack

Storage Tips from

Photograph by Colin Grey Voigt

Shelf Genie Day to day life in the kitchen can be hectic with everybody trying to reach for plates and bowls and other items that are needed throughout the day. The perfect solution for kitchen storage is crucial for the functionality of the kitchen and for the sanity of the chef in the family.

1 Maximizing Small Spaces:

When it comes to kitchen storage, collaborating with a professional cabinet organizer is the best way to ensure that all of your needs are met!

1

For those spice cabinets that never seem to have enough space, adding an extra layer with a pull-out feature allows you to create double the space in a smaller cabinet. Now you can store all the important spices for your favorite meals and have easy access to see all of your spice options in one glance.

Creative Corners

2 Creative Corners:

Corner cabinets can often be tricky to organize. However, if they’re done properly, you won’t have to worry about reaching those awkward spaces. Use the corner cabinets for plates, bowls, and glasses. By storing chunkier items that take up a little bit more space, you’re creating an L-shape that’s just one row deep instead of trying to tuck things into all the tight corners.

2

3 Easy to Reach:

The majority of homeowners tend to put their pots and pans in a bottom cabinet which can sometimes make them difficult to reach. Because they’re also heavier items, lifting the cookware creates a strain on their backs. Glideouts take that strain away and make it much easier for you to reach and lift each item.

What are some of the benefits of installing spray foam insulation in a home?

Why should homeowners get a monitored security system rather than an unmonitored security system?

What recommendations for smart home technology do you have for people who are building their own homes?

“With the way things are today, we’re always on the go and everybody has a cell phone. ADT allows homeowners the ability to be connected with their phones from wherever they are so they receive first notification if anything changes within the house. Having an ADT system in the home is designed to grow with the homeowner’s needs by looking into the future to help each family be prepared and feel safe.”

“There’s the essentials that we always suggest, like security, wifi, and structured wiring. Then there’s what I refer to as the ‘fun stuff.’ Lighting control is a feature that allows homeowners to automate lights and control them remotely. A doorbell camera allows you to see and talk to visitors even when your away. From there, we can focus on updating the audio-visual technology; the television with surround sound is a favorite feature in every home.”

Energy One America

“Spray foam will reduce a homeowners electric bill by about 40 percent once they install it in their attic or floor system. It creates a much cleaner indoor air environment. It also helps the air conditioning unit not work so hard because your attic drops to about 85 or 90 degrees instead of an average of 156. There’s open cell and closed cell spray foam to choose from when you're weighing your options. Closed cell makes your roof 300 percent stronger in the event of violent weather, whereas open cell provides superior sound abatement, but they both stop air infiltration.” For more information, call Energy One America at (843) 388-6260 or visit energyoneamerica.com.

It’s also really popular right now. Quartz companies are doing a great job at making it look so much like real marble or real granite and that’s what people really want right now; that clean, fresh look.

ARCHITECT:

Christopher Rose, AIA COMPANY:

Christopher Rose Architects, P.A. CREDENTIALS:

Since he was a small boy, Chris loved to paint and he knew exactly what he wanted to be when he grew up. While attending Clemson University for Undergraduate and Graduate School he also studied abroad in Genoa, Italy. These travels inspired his love for painting and architecture even more and reinforced his architectural career choice as a perfect way of combining his favorite hobby with his profession.

What are a few of your favorite design elements of this home? Designing the dining room, great room, and home office so that the homeowners and guests can take advantage of the distant view of the ocean is my favorite aspect of the home. The marble master bath has vaulted ceilings and large marble shower that are also spectacular. An open contemporary three story staircase is a main feature that really catches the eye.

What particular challenges did you face while designing this structure? Incorporating the swimming pool into the rear deck, maintaining views, and creating a footprint that worked on a narrow site was the biggest challenge for the design of this home.

Why was it important for the homeowners to work with an architect on this project? This is the second Kiawah home we have designed for the homeowners. Their previous home didn’t have room for a pool, so this time, they took advantage of our architectural pre-contract services of assisting their search for a buildable lot where they could be closer to the ocean and find a lot that allowed for a pool. Having done another home with the client we could easily customize this home to their current needs for their young, growing family.

Richard Jackson COMPANY:

JacksonBuilt Custom Homes CREDENTIALS:

What began as a passion for exploring houses under construction at a young age eventually led to a culmination of over 20 years of experience in the industry. In 2009, Richard founded JacksonBuilt Custom Homes and designed his company around a persistent standard for unsurpassed quality and the highest level of customer service.

What are some of the unique features of this home? This home is situated on a deep water lot, so the outdoor living aspect is quite spectacular. It includes a vaulted rear porch with a wood burning fireplace and pool overlooking the Wando River. There are wall-to-wall, 10-foot sliding doors across the rear of the home that frame the view and bring the outdoors in, which was important to the homeowners.

Were there any challenges that presented themselves throughout the process? With a deep and narrow lot, we had to work as a team with the architect during the design process to make the best use of the building area available and incorporate our client’s wish list. For example, stairs had to be incorporated into the rear porch elevation, giving the illusion they are hidden, to allow for the pool to fit on the lot.

What advice do you have for homeowners looking to build a custom home? Without question, we believe the most cohesive home design is the result of the homeowner, builder, and architect working together from the beginning. A collaborative team approach will streamline the process and reduce building costs while adding value. Selecting a building team to work with you in the planning stages ensures your final design can be built within your budget and with minimal changes along the way.

Shannon Bogan COMPANY:

S. Bogan Designs CREDENTIALS:

Shannon’s love of all things design began at an early age when she was more interested in Barbie’s dream house than her shoes and handbags! She started in the design field on the commercial side, but it became apparent that the finishes and staging of the homes were a top priority for clients. Shannon switched to residential design and finds the ultimate fulfillment by working with clients to create their dream home.

What were some of the design goals of this home? This Kiawah home belongs to a special couple–they are so alive and fun and have such a love for color. When the wife gave us the pink, blue, and orange palette, I was so pleasantly surprised. They wanted a beach house that was comfortable and colorful.

What are a few of your favorite elements of this home? I absolutely love the four swivel chairs in the blue hombre fabric from Rowe. They are comfortable, stylish, and make such a statement in the sitting area off the kitchen. The Thibault wallpaper in the powder room is a show stopper, too.

Why was it important for the homeowners to work with an interior designer to create this design? Their desired palette was strong, vibrant colors. While it’s such a beautiful palette, it can be tricky to work with such independent shades. Our experience with color and efficient design was invaluable on this project.

What challenges did you overcome while working on this design? We had a very quick turn-around time for this project in order to meet a family gathering deadline. Trying to pull that kind of design together in a short time often requires the expertise or a professional to help the homeowners avoid mistakes as well as meet the deadline.

uying a family home requires patience and diligence and can be a difficult process to navigate. However, remodeling a family home requires the same patience and diligence coupled with thought, vision and creativity. It can be a much more difficult process, but one that, often times, is simply unavoidable. That is exactly what Daniel Island residents Chad and Angie Johnson decided when they ultimately exhausted their search for “the perfect” new home. In the end they opted to purchase an existing home and partner with the original 102 • CH+D • Winter 2019

builder Lowcountry Premier Custom Homes, to modify and update. With three active growing boys and a busy lifestyle, it was imperative for the Johnsons to find just the right dwelling that would fit their needs. Chad and Angie own a real estate business, which has been based on Daniel Island for the last eighteen years, so it might seem like a simple task to most observers. “We looked at a lot of houses, but nothing felt quite right,” explains Angie. “We actually looked at our current house several times before making a decision. It

seemed a little too far from what we were looking for. Chad realized its potential first and he slowly brought me around to the idea of remodeling it.” The home was initially built by Lowcountry Premier Custom Homes, but that’s not where Angie and Chad’s relationship with proprietor Cy Goforth began. “Angie was one of the first real estate agents I met on Daniel Island and actually gave me initial design direction on the first home I designed and built here”, says Cy. “Over the years we have worked together many times and have formed

a great professional relationship as well. Since the Johnsons knew that they were going to remodel their home and having such a great relationship with the original builder to begin with, working with Cy to create the perfect home was the obvious choice. “It’s a very well-built structure,” describes Angie. “But the previous owner didn’t have young children at home so everything in it was very masculine.

We wanted to brighten it up and update the style. We particularly needed an open kitchen that functioned well for our family.” So the team went to the drawing board, accompanied by interior designer Caroline DeVlaming Farrior and Embellish Interiors, kitchen designer Bryan Reiss, CMKBD of Distinctive Design, and Damien Busillo of DLB Architects for the overall restructuring of the project. They brought down the ceiling

in the entryway to add finished space upstairs, redesigned the fenestration in the living and dining room areas to take full advantage of the stunning views, and completely reconfigured the kitchen area to include a scullery. The fireplace in the living room was also redone on a larger scale to make it fit the room. “We were actually in the middle of remodeling the family room when Chad decided that the CH+D • Winter 2019 • 103

fireplace needed to be a more dramatic focal point to balance the room.” That meant that the entire chimney and flue had to be replaced to accommodate the larger capacity. The Johnsons chose a stunning marble for the fireplace surround, and

initially wanted to carry it into the kitchen as well. After much debate, the marble countertops were not chosen, due to the extra upkeep and maintenance. Instead Angie and Chad chose a beautiful Polarstone quartz for unmatched dura-

bility and impeccable style. Overall the process was seamless and painless for the Johnsons because of their excellent relationship with Cy and the other members of the team. “Cy is a practical person,” Angie adds. “He offered usable insight for all of the different areas of the house once we described what we wanted. The other critical part of the process was that he kept us all on track and we finished the project on time.” In Angie and Chad’s opinion, working with their friend and their home’s original builder was the best choice they could possibly make. ✴ For more information, call Lowcountry Premier Custom Homes at (843) 881-3930 or visit lowcountrypremiercustomhomes.com.

thing exciting and beautiful, much like the home that Garden State Lumber provided with custom exterior shingles. Behind the structure's initial overall beauty, though, is a strong, functional product that provides its homeowners with plenty of those worry and maintenance-free days that are often so elu-

sive when it comes to the upkeep of a house. Garden State Lumber is a distributor of the exterior siding product from NuCedar. This complete cladding system from NuCedar includes shingles, siding, clapboard, and trim. Each item, including the individual shingles, is produced from a PVC material. The particular PVC shingles found on this

(above left) The NuCedar PVC shingles on this stunning Kiawah Island home were customized to coordinate with the color of the marble in the walkway. (above right) The shingles and intricate stonework on the multi-car garage, which also provides space for a frog, are an exact match to the main house. It includes a space for the laser-cut outdoor shower detail. (below left) The garage boasts intricate detail at the roof apex to add interest as well as draw the eye upward. (below right) Small diamond details at intervals on the walls add dimension and break up the linear style of the NuCedar shingles.

Kiawah Island home are also designed with custom, non-repeating methods to look just like a textured, real wood shingle. Russell Fogg of Garden State Lumber says, “NuCedar has done an outstanding job duplicating the look of real wood siding. It’s almost impossible to differentiate, even to the trained eye.” Another feature that sets these shingles apart from real wood or alternative op-

tions is the nature of PVC itself. Even though it’s similar to the PVC that most people associate with plumbing applications, it’s formulated differently to make it more pliable than real wood. Because this plastic product is more pliable than wood, it creates a slightly flexible barrier against high winds and air-born objects, which in turn, makes it great for application on the exterior of homes located in hurricane-prone areas like

the Lowcountry. Russell adds, “I think pliability is a key component to this NuCedar shingle. Not only does it allow more freedom in the design of the home, usually in terms of radial design components, but it also protects the home in the event of a high-velocity storm.” The cherry on top of all of these aspects is the warranty that comes with each type of NuCedar product. “Installing a CH+D • Winter 2019 • 107

product that repels water is vital here in the Lowcountry if homeowners don’t want to replace pieces throughout the life of their home,” explains Russell. “NuCedar offers a 25-year warranty on the custom coating, and because PVC doesn’t rot, it makes for an ideal exterior shingle.” The designer of this home, Chris Rose of Christopher Rose Architects, expounds, “I have been using this PVC product for the last several years and have been impressed with its durability. With a baked-on coating that keeps it cooler in our hot environment and since PVC won’t mold or mildew, it’s an ideal op-

tion for the Lowcountry. For our clients who don’t want their exterior siding to weather and to stay the same color, this is the best option I have come across.” The fact that PVC is impervious to moisture, which is constantly prevalent in Charleston, it is clear these homeowners chose to install a long-lasting exterior that provides flexibility, protection, and a peace of mind for the largest part of their most important investment. ✴ For more information, call Garden State Lumber at (843) 754-2556 or visit gardenstatelumber.com.

Stellar Illumination For this Eutawville, SC homeowner, getting advice from the experts who could meet her needs made all the difference in her outdoor lighting experience.

A

fter a rough experience with prior outdoor lighting, this Eutawville homeowner was ready to make her outdoor lighting dreams come true with the help of the experts at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives. Mike Thompson, proprietor of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, was working on a Christmas project for an-

other client when he was approached by this particular homeowner who was interested in how his company could solve her lighting dilemma. After walking the property, Mike and the homeowner came up with a game plan. “We walked the property together and she had a pretty large scale project,” Mike says. “The property owner had a lot of specific

needs and it was my job as the professional to provide her with the best experience and to exceed her expectations which I feel like we accomplished. She was over the moon about what we could do and the level of service we could provide.” Once the walk-through was complete and Mike provided his feedback, he

returned to do a demo at night for the homeowner so that she could get a visual for what the project would look like upon completion. By doing the demo, the homeowner was able to visualize different aspects that she wanted to install and they could make changes from there. A typical project for Mike and his team at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives starts with a call or email to the team. Like with this project, Mike visits the site to walk the property with the home-

owner so that he can see what they envision for the home. As they walk the property, Mike gives the homeowners suggestions as to what he thinks will work best to highlight the features of the home and surrounding characteristics. “It's often important to give the customer my input. Whether it’s about a tree that I think would look good lit up or lighting around the pool at night for safety,” explains Mike. “A big part of it is getting the customer’s input too. We collab-

orate closely together so that the results are exactly what the homeowner needs.” For the folks over at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, it’s important to get their clients’ opinions so that they can give them as many options as possible so that the client can decide what’s best for their project. With the customizable systems that Outdoor Lighting Perspectives installs, clients can start with a smaller scale project and add on overtime or they can go all-out right from the start.

This large scale project included a pool, garage, dock, cabin-style house, and a big oak tree so there was a lot of work to be done. The project started with candy cane lighting around the live oak that went all the way up to the canopy which allows the tree to be seen from miles away on the lake. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives also lit up the homeowner’s stone walkway that led to the front of the house by

drilling down to the surface level so that the fixture isn’t visible. This created a beautiful uplighting to the front of the house and added an extra safety precaution. Another great aspect of this project was the festive bistro-style lighting that was done around the roof lines of the four buildings on the property, which everything gave a nice subtle, white ambiance. The dock was lit like a runway so you can see it from the main house and again, it adds safety for when the homeowner is out and about at night. ✴ For more information, call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives at (843) 412-5874 or visit charleston.outdoorlights.com.

When they built their home, MJ had a clear vision of how she wanted to style the home, both on the inside and outside. Once the dwelling was constructed, MJ and Vincent selected just the right paint color for the exterior.

It wasn’t long afterward, though, that the couple realized they were repainting the exterior on a frequent basis. Fortunately, the O’Briens attended one of Charleston Home + Design's annual home shows, where they met with a company that could solve their increasingly expensive problem. “We had all kinds of questions for Rhino Shield, and their

answers went above and beyond our expectations,” says Vincent. Jon Rosa of Rhino Shield by Palmetto Ceramic Coatings can’t recommend the method of protection highly enough. “The technology that comprises our Elastomeric Ceramic coating creates a breathable membrane around the exterior of the structure,” Jon explains. “Think of it like a flexible covering for the exteri-

or of your home that doesn’t crack or chip, deflects UV-rays, and helps with energy efficiency.” Since the Elastomeric coating is eight-to-ten times thicker than regular paint, it requires a bit more prep work. “We come to a job and make sure every inch of the exterior where the coating needs to be applied is accurately measured, we make necessary repairs, and clean the entire surface thoroughly,” describes Jon. The top layer of the Elastomeric product is applied and bonds to the primer, creating that flexible membrane that moves with the home. Energy efficiency, structural protection, and

color customization are other aspects of Rhino Shield’s commodity. “Simply put, the ceramics are comprised of UV-reflecting ingredients, which helps regulate the temperature of the largest surface of your home,” expounds Jon. The basis for the success of Rhino Shield’s product is clearly the ceramic technology, the 25-year warranty, and energy efficiency, but the customer service and long-lasting relationships are the fundamental reasons Vincent and MJ love working with Jon and his team. ✴ For more information, call Rhino Shield at (843) 884-1992 or visit rhinoshieldsc.com.

just the two of them. It had also been nearly a decade since Tori had updated any of the interior features, which is the initial reason she called upon Bobbi Jo Engelby of Domain Interiors. The open area that is part kitchen and part pool table and gathering area was something that Tori knew needed a

face lift. “The pool table was honestly the biggest challenge throughout the whole process, because I wasn’t sure if we should move it and just have seating, but I also had no idea how to redesign the area if we kept it in place,” recounts Tori. Bobbi and Tori’s daughter both helped make the decision to keep it in place; partly because it’s

been a focal point for the family and Tori’s husband, Greg, loves to play, and partly because Bobbi knew just how to brighten the space. “The key was lighter paint, and once we got that on the walls and chose an accent paint for the ceiling detail, everything else fell into place,” describes Bobbi. From there, she added curtains, comfortable, modern swivel-chair seating, and some eye-catching accents.

“I actually met with Bobbi because I was initially thinking everything just needed a new coat of paint,” Tori adds with a laugh. “Another challenge I put forward was for Bobbi to use designs and colors that lasted for another ten years. It was surprising how she accomplished that with just a few small changes in most spaces that made the base architectural layers pop in a new way.” In terms of those smaller

changes, Bobbi suggested new lighting in the kitchen and banquet areas, as well as recovered bar stools and chairs for both spots respectively. Tori’s study was a much more dramatic transformation in terms of color. “Tori spends a lot of time in her study working, so she needed something that she loves and that is conducive to concentration.

shade from the kitchen and darkened it by a few hues so that it’s more vivid, but also calming,” explains Bobbi. The former design of the study incorporated dark wood paneling on the walls and since that side of the house is surrounded by trees, there wasn’t much sunlight filtering through. Bobbi took the design cues from Tori’s mid-century modern desk and credenza, as well as her statement piece of artwork to create a space that Tori truly loves to spend time in now.

Stunning Rejuvenation A certain Mt. Pleasant homeowner was looking to revamp her master bathroom in a big way.

W

hen Laura Glaser began her remodel for her master bathroom, she knew she wanted a fresh, clean look. Laura first reached out to Kim Hood from Carpet Baggers, after hearing about them through a friend, in hopes of remediating a leak in the shower substrate. With Kim’s help, Laura’s bathroom dreams became a reality. “I wanted a successful product that would protect our investment going forward,” explains

120 • CH+D • Winter 2019

Laura. “The finishes that Laura picked were very eye-catching,” adds Kim. The dynamic duo began with a gorgeous Bianco Dolomite mosaic tile on the floor; one of the great statement pieces in the bathroom. With the other tile in the space, Kim says this combination created a cutting edge look. “The Bianco Dolomite is a nice continuation of the Carrera and Calcutta marble that’s also used throughout the space.”

The Calcutta is gold with a creamywhite hue and it pairs beautifully with the gray hues that the Carrera offers. “I selected the wall color as the darkest tone seen in the space so that it accents the sway of darker colors,” Laura mentions. “You can see it a little bit more because it’s reflected and the color itself is a much brighter white. Then I took a high reflective white to balance out the brighter color and natural light.”

(above right) Laura selected honed marble for the shower. (below left) Kim Hood of Carpet Baggers Carpet One (below right) The mosaic tile flooring makes the neutral palette pop.

Kim then collaborated with Laura on a solution for constructing the perfect water-tight curbless shower. By honing the marble along the ridge line of the shower, Kim was able to produce Laura’s dream shower. To build on to the cohesiveness of the design, the same Bianco Dolomite tile that was used on the floor was used as a smaller tile in the shower as well. “The cross pattern that we created on the bathroom floor is perfect and fades into the smaller pattern in the shower and the overall effect works well,” Kim explains. Laura placed all her trust in the experts when it came to the intricate tile design. After being unsure as to how the pattern-driven wall would turn out, she put

her faith in Kim and the Carpet Baggers team to create an amazing design. “Her team knew to separate designs and lay them out in a fashion that would be aesthetically pleasing on the wall,” Laura declares. Throughout the process, Kim kept Laura’s ideas of transitional modern pieces while making helpful suggestions. Sometimes a project like this can be overwhelming for the homeowner, so Kim’s goal is always to ease that stress and make the experience enjoyable. ✴ For more information, call Carpet Baggers Carpet One at (843) 571-0013 or visit carpet-baggers.com.

Keeping It Real Charleston’s girl-next-door reality TV personality, Chelsea Meissner, chats with Charleston Home + Design about using her survival skills during her time on Survivor, how she balances a full-time job with filming Southern Charm around town, while also spending time outdoors with friends, family, and her rescue pup, Tyson.

A

s a writer, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m fascinated and constantly confounded by how our society and a lot of its norms have changed in just a short period of time (especially within my lifetime). Reality TV and social media (to name a few) have had very interesting

roles, not just in how humans communicate with each other, but also how we perceive each other. Reality shows tend to add a bit more sparkle to the “real” lives of celebrities and we as viewers often take it as gospel truth. Which is why meeting the lovely Chelsea Meissner, a favorite TV personality on the locally-filmed Bravo series Southern Charm, and hair stylist extraordinaire, was such a breath of fresh air. Even from snippets of the show, it felt as if I already knew her because she seems to keep it so real. This perception proved to be reality—Chelsea is as laid-back in person as she is on the show. She also turned out to be even more of a kindred spirit that I could relate to on a tomboyish level. She talked of growing up in the country, of learning as a child what would later become survival skills, and being more at ease with her dog on a hiking trail than in a dress and makeup preparing to film a TV show. Her welcoming, easy-going, fun-loving vibe is as real as it gets.

CH+D • Winter 2019 • 125


Keeping It Real

Chelsea, tell us about where you grew up, a little about your childhood in the country, and what brought you to Charleston.

Between working and filming I don’t get a whole lot of free time, but when I do, I try my best to be on the water. There is something about the water that is freeing and rejuvenating for me. There is also something about the Lowcountry water in particular that feels like home. I love fishing, wake surfing, paddleboarding, sunrise surf sessions, and shark tooth hunting along Folly Beach with my pup, Tyson.

I grew up on the May River in Bluffton, South Carolina. At the time, Bluffton was a sleepy little river town where everyone knew their neighbor and all the kids played in the pluff mud after school. When my mother remarried we moved to Florence, SC where we lived on an 80-acre horse farm with an equestrian center. I spent a fair share of my childhood Simple, open shelving with sconce competing in horse shows lighting and an and cleaning stalls. After understated color high school and college I palette all help the moved to Hilton Head Isgreen tile stand out. land for a short time before taking a job in medical sales that brought me to Charleston. My entire family slowly made their way to Charleston after I settled here. I don’t know what’s better— getting to call Charleston home for the past ten years, or no longer having to travel for the holidays. I love having them all here, close to me. What do you do for a living now and how did you decide it’s what you wanted to do? I’ve been a hairstylist for five years now. After spending some time traveling and learning things about myself, I eventually decided it was time to work doing something I loved. I’ve always thought that I work too hard to work for someone else, so I finally decided it was time to do something for me, something I would love waking up to do everyday. Styling hair gives me the ability to be creative and help people feel great about themselves. It’s rewarding in that way. Being self-employed also gives me the freedom to travel, which is my true passion.

Not one to shy away from trying new things or learning new skill sets, I recently picked up archery. If you haven’t noticed a pattern, I am also someone who goes “all in,” so I built an archery range in my backyard. Something about hitting a bullseye from 40 yard away makes you feel really tough. [laughs]

Between filming and being a regular cast member of Bravo’s Southern Charm (and all that it entails), what do you do in your down time?

You were a competitor on CBS’s Survivor, too. Where did they send you that season and what made you decide to participate?

126 • CH+D • Winter 2019

They sent us to Samoa, which honestly, I had never heard of. [laughs] It’s a beautiful island in the South Pacific, in case you haven’t heard of it either. It’s a crazy story how it all happened. I got a random call from a CBS recruiter asking if I had ever seen Survivor and if I had any interest in trying out for the show. At the time, I was working in medical sales and felt like it was too big of a risk to lose my job, which at that point was my dream job. I told the recruiter I had only seen the first season of Survivor and didn’t know much about it. So initially, I declined. After discussing the potential opportunity with my family, they were quick to make me feel like an idiot for not taking advantage of what could be the adventure of a lifetime. Needless to say, I called the recruiter back and told her to sign me up. We went through the extensive interview and screening process, then I went months without hearing back from them, so I assumed I didn’t make the cut. Then I got the call. They said, “Congratulations, you leave in two weeks.” Two weeks! Things became very chaotic very quickly, but looking back, it’s probably a good thing I didn’t have too much time to think about what I was about to get into. Overthinking choices can limit us in so many ways that we aren’t even aware of, you know? I might have ended up talking myself out of going if I’d had more time to prepare. That sounds like it was a whirlwind! And you had a hard, but great experience while you were there. Can you describe your experience and the friendships you developed? I can honestly say it was the absolute hardest thing I have ever experienced. It poured rain the first five days we were

on the island, which made it extremely hard to build a shelter and start a fire. A few days into filming I remember asking someone what the actual date was so I would always remember the worst day of my life. No exaggeration! It was August 5th, 2011. Worst. Day. Of. My. Life. And I still had over 30 days of filming on the island left to go. Our season was men versus women, too, which made camp life tough in the beginning. I quickly realized I was the country girl and that meant was going to have to pull a lot of the weight. Basically I was wearing all camouflage and catching wild chickens within the first few hours of meeting my tribe mates. How’s that for a first impression? I also got to put my spear fishing skills to good use. It was a proud moment for my dad when he watched me on Survivor teaching my tribe mates how to use a Hawaiian Sling. He taught me everything I know about spearfishing.

128 • CH+D • Winter 2019

Needless to say, I did a pretty good job keeping my tribe fed. I loved the survival part of the show and the challenges, but hated the mind games and politics. For me, the best part was the friendships I made. I'm still very close to several people I met in Samoa. Kim [Spradlin Wolfe] who won my season is one of my best friends. We had a very strong bond throughout the show that actually brought us to the final round together. That strong bond has continued through our adulthood. It’s hard to describe to others who haven’t been through what we all went through on the island together. The bond you build with the people in your tribe goes beyond friendship. They become family. We see each other at our dirtiest, crankiest, smelliest, and it’s just so real that you know without a doubt that these people are going to be your friends for life.

Let’s switch gears a little and chat about your past few seasons on the locally-filmed Bravo TV show, Southern Charm. What is it like to be in the local and even some of the national spotlight? That’s actually something I’ve been trying to put into words for a while, and the best way I can explain it is sometimes it’s really cool and other times it can be difficult. I don’t think of myself as a reality TV personality or celebrity of any kind, so it’s still a little surprising when people recognize me around town. If I can say so myself, I’m really humble about it. I would rather spend the majority of my time working at the salon than be in the spotlight on a regular basis. That has a lot to do with who I am as a laid back, tomboy, introverted kind of person who was brought up with a strong work ethic. Mostly I think of myself as someone who just happens to be on a television show with friends,


and that doesn’t make me any different than anyone else. How did you initially get involved with Southern Charm? Cameran Wimberly and I were roommates for a year before she got engaged to her now husband. We remained friends, so she invited me to a dinner party that they were filming during season three of Southern Charm. I think they were trying to get Cameran to set me up with Shep Rose, but they were unaware that I had known Shep for years. The next season they were looking for a few new cast members and so they interviewed Austen Kroll and me to be on the show full-time. It’s pretty crazy how these things happen and kind of funny to look back on now.

Chelsea, your home is one of the most welcoming I’ve ever had the pleasure of stepping into. It’s so chic and vibrant—how did you know that it was the perfect house for you and what vision did you have for the renovation? When I pulled into the driveway and saw the massive live oak trees draped with Spanish moss, I was sold. So much of the appeal was the location, the yard, the trees, and the views of the Clark Sound. Then, hoping to have some good Star Wars juju, I closed on the house on May 4th. [Laughs] Now looking back, I truly believe ‘the force was with me,’ during the major renovation. Don’t we all wish that was the case with remodels? The house was

a completely outdated mess. Every wall was a different color, there was cheap vinyl flooring and nasty, old carpet all in a layout that made no sense. But it had been a rental up to that point, so it wasn’t really a surprise that things were a bit mismatched. I knew the house had good bones, though, and I could see it had a lot of potential. It just needed a facelift. Or so I thought. We had to redo the entire 2,100 square foot interior. And I’m not going to lie, it was a stressful process. But I knew when we opened it up and lightened the interior that it would become a house that I could call home—a place I would love to spend time in, to relax in.

You worked with your good friend Kim Spradlin Wolfe, who was on Survivor with you, to design the interior of the home, correct? How did the two of you work together to create this masterpiece? The conversation started out as somewhat of a joke. I don’t think either one of us really had envisioned it being as big of a project or commitment as it turned out to be. It just sort of came together that way. Thank God it did, too. Kim is insanely talented, so I’m forever grateful that she wanted to use my home as a project for her website. Having an interior designer as a best friend made the process so much easier because she already knew me and my style so well. Our main goal was to make the house feel like a reflection of me and I think Kim nailed it in every room. When you and Kim were putting your heads together about the design of each space in the house, how did you describe to her what your vision was? How involved were you in the selections for each room?

Because Kim knows me so well, we really didn’t do much communicating when deciding on décor. We of course sent a few Pinterest photos back-and-forth, but she intuitively had a grasp on what I was going for style-wise. She would send me lots of suggestions and I would say “I like this” or “I don’t like that”. Honestly, making selections was the easy part! There was only one thing we ended up having to return and that was a side table that Kim picked out.. I thought it looked like a toilet. [laughs] Were there any challenges you and Kim overcame together when designing the interior? How did you overcome those challenges and is there anything you would have done differently? I can’t think of any particular challenges we faced with the design. Most of the challenges were with the reconstruction of the home. Kim and I seemed to agree on most of the design ideas. If we didn’t, I always trusted her idea over mine. [laughs] When it comes to the design, there truly isn’t one thing I would have done differently. CH+D • Winter 2019 • 131


Keeping It Real

(above) The Willoughby couch from Anthropologie in “Oyster” and the leather chairs from West Elm build the room with opposing textures, and the bright rug adds just the right amount of rich colors to anchor the room’s look.

It’s clear from the design that you and Kim are not afraid of color, which is wonderful. What was your dream for the different spaces throughout and do you have a favorite room? My biggest fear was that my house would feel like a showroom and would make people nervous to relax and prop their feet up. I wanted the house to have its own character but also feel cozy and inviting. Neither Kim nor I think of ourselves as 'girly girls' so we often discussed the balance between masculine and feminine as the layers of the house came together. Each room has the perfect amount of colorful feminine touches with a bit of leather, wood, and metal to keep it all cohesive. I drew a lot of design inspiration from a juice bar downtown, called Huryali. I took Kim to Huryali for an acai bowl during one of her visits and we wrote down lots of notes. Every time I walk into my kitch132 • CH+D • Winter 2019

en I feel like I'm in the Caribbean, which make me so happy. Everyone goes nuts when they turn the corner and lay eyes on my retro orange fridge. My favorite room in the house is my bedroom. Deciding on such dramatic wallpaper was not easy. It’s a big commitment. I was literally sweating watching the wallpaper hanger put it on the walls. I'm so glad Kim pushed me out of my comfort zone because I couldn't imagine my room any other way. It reminds me of my favorite vacation spot, Costa Rica—definitely not a bad way to end a long day. I absolutely love every square foot of the room. “They” say that a house is never quite finished, so do you have any other plans for the house in terms of remodeling to do? The exterior of the house still needs some work but it’s going to have to wait till spring. I’m tired. [laughs] I’m plan-

ning on painting the brick exterior and putting in a Dutch front door. I’d love to eventually hardscape the yard and spruce up the front porch. I may even add a Charleston style gas lantern by the front door. Now that you’ve officially been through the whole process, do you have any advice that you’d like to share with fellow homeowners who are also remodeling their homes? [laughs] I was given some good advice that I didn’t put much stock in until the remodel was nearly over. When you’re in the thick of it, it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel and it’s really easy to get overwhelmed by all of that stress. Make sure that you remember it will be finished and when everything is done, you won’t remember how stressed you were in the middle of it. Just keep breathing and don’t worry, you’ll get through it.

(above left) A kitchen with open shelving provides room for multiple cooks with a modern flare. (above right) The master bedroom’s accent wall gives the space a huge pop of color and mod vibes that Jesse reflected in the decor selections.

The Designer: Jesse Vickers

The Challenge:

To maximize the footprint of a small, coastal-meets-modern new construction vacation rental while also making the space functional for the homeowner’s family visits.

Challenge Accepted:

The two-bedroom vacation home needed to comfortably sleep between six and eight people, so Jesse and the team at JLV Creative undertook the mission of turning each closet, cubby, and corner of this home into functional, beautiful spaces. She started with where to place new sleeping arrangements that felt just as special as the master bedroom. On top of that, the sectional sofa folds out to a queen sleeper bed and the laundry closet was converted into a bunk bedroom for two. Everything from fabric to furnishings also had to be durable and renter-friendly. For more information, call JLV Creative at (843) 277-6577 ext. 1 or visit jlvcreative.com.

(above right) A barn door conveys the coastal-country vibes of the architecture and pairs perfectly with the gold leaf pedestal for the vase.

The Designer: Judy Bistany

The Challenge:

To incorporate furnishings collected by the homeowners during their residence in Europe and Asia, while also designing a lowcountry-rustic home.

Challenge Accepted:

Rather than allowing the homeowners to put their eclectic valuables in storage or even give them away, Judy devised a way to integrate them into the scheme of the lowcountry-rustic home on Daniel Island. By adhering to her philosophy that the element of surprise and imperfection is the goal. Judy arranged the homeowner’s artwork, decor, and furniture to build a home that is inviting, comfortable, and sprinkled with items that bring back great memories.

(above left) The modern aspects of the bedside tables complement the custom headboard, which Domain Interiors made specifically for this room. (above right) Differing shades of white, cream, shell, and brown create a spa-like feeling where anyone can relax.

The Designer: Bobbi Jo Engelby

The Challenge:

To create a new guest suite for the homeowner with colors, textures, and décor that is relaxing and would not have to be redesigned for another decade.

Challenge Accepted:

Bobbi Jo worked with this homeowner, knowing that she would prefer not to redo her guest suite for several years down the road, so the two joined forces to develop the room around a truffle-brown suede sofa. From there, Bobbi Jo integrated modern and transitional elements in differing shades to maintain the room’s spa-like vibes. A shell color on the walls is soft, but not girly, while the headboard provides an eye-grabbing flare of drama.

(above left) A statement rug from Pacific Rugs of Atlanta sets the stage for the rest of the entryway. (above right) Perfect details like the texture on the wallpaper and the gold accents on the table bring stunning features to this hard-to-style space.

The Designer:

Lauren Messina, ASID

The Challenge:

To design an entryway that is both beautiful and welcoming, while also incorporating textures and appropriate light fixtures.

Challenge Accepted:

Even though entryways can often be one of the most challenging spaces to design, Lauren selected woven navy wallpaper by F. Schumacher, which adds character and sets a cozier tone for the room. By paying attention to scale, she then incorporated a large vintage rug, an oversized lantern, and proportioned furniture to create depth. A custom art piece by Kerry Steel adds the finishing touch.

The Designer:

Karen Germond, Green AP

The Challenge:

To encompass a neutral design palette that would appeal to many tastes and styles as well as include elements of the Lowcountry’s coastal influence.

Challenge Accepted:

Putting together a cohesive home that appeals to multiple types of décor taste can be a struggle for any project. Karen selected just the right balance of traditional, transitional, and country-chic to create a home with comfort and style.

The Designer: Emily Stallings

The Challenge:

To create a multi-functional entertainment space for the entire family while maintaining the modern, coastal design of the home.

Challenge Accepted:

Plush velvet accent chairs and rich indigo hues created an inviting space that could easily transition from family movie night to weekend cocktails with friends. To ensure a kid-proof lounge area, Emily chose a durable Sunbrella upholstered sectional that could comfortably seat the entire family. With the aesthetic of the home in mind, a geometric rug and modern accent furniture kept the space tied in with the rest of the house. Multi-functional window treatments, cozy textures, and a pop of modern artwork added the perfect finish to this inviting, relaxing space.

(above left) The waterfall countertops (provided by Palmetto Surfacing) on the island bring a clean, elegant centerpiece for the kitchen. (above right) T. selected brass accent fixtures to coordinate with the brass hardware and the light fixture from Circa Lighting.

The Designer: T. Phillips

The Challenge:

To retrofit an existing kitchen for homeowners needing a warm functional kitchen to entertain without removing or changing any of the cabinetry.

Challenge Accepted:

This design was envisioned by T. as an update that created a stunning kitchen with a modern flare, without adjusting the footprint of the kitchen itself. From that vision, the waterfall marble countertop was the key focal point. The butler’s pantry and kitchen cabinetry previously had clear glass doors, which made the kitchen look dark and empty, so T. exchanged it for Parisian antique mirror panels. New paint, new modern light fixtures, and custom bar stools give the kitchen a finished, modern flare.

The Designer: Beth Cochran

The Challenge:

To create a light, bright space with punches of color and give each area a unique look while maintaining a cohesive color story.

Challenge Accepted:

In order to make the dark, classic pieces of furniture come alive in this new design scheme, Beth helped the homeowner select color accents in the accessories and pillows as a common thread to cohesively tie together the spaces throughout the home while creating distinctive personalities for each space.

Allyson Kirkpatrick-Clark

The Challenge:

To not only collaborate with the architect to renovate this 60’s-style ranch home, but to also infuse a sense of drama and stunning glamour into the newly renovated dwelling

Challenge Accepted:

Allyson joined forces with Bird & Kamback Architects to transform this “rambler” into a showhouse-worthy abode. With sweeping colors, exposed rafters, and custom millwork and trim throughout, Allyson was able to build an interior that is both dramatic and accomplished.

(above left) The washed wood of the coffee table and woven texture of the rug add dimension to this neutral living room. (above right) Featuring a stunning soaking tub, the bathroom that Shay designed continues the subtle color palette of the home.

The Designer: Shay Simpson

The Challenge:

To design a home that is light and bright while also creating a comfortable and cozy feel throughout each room.

Challenge Accepted:

Creating a white house can be a challenge because it’s imperative to layer and texturize on that “canvas” so the spaces don’t come out boring, or sterile, or flat. Shay worked with the homeowners by using a primarily white and gray palette to give them the perfect bright, open feel they were looking for. She then incorporated neutral textures such as washed woods, bright metals, and distressed finishes to add dimension and interest.

The Designer: Shannon Bogan

The Challenge:

To design a space with plenty of room for the homeowner’s college-age children and friends, while also providing a functional space in a more narrow, open concept floor-plan.

Challenge Accepted:

Shannon opted for a long sectional sofa to provide enough seating for regular guests. From there, she helped the homeowners plan just the right amount of space and organization for the kitchen by adding two islands, so the cook of the house could have plenty of elbow room when friends are over. By choosing a more neutral scheme and adding subtle patterns, Shannon created a room with interest that doesn’t distract from the beams across the vaulted ceilings and pulls attention from one side of the room to the other without overwhelming the senses.

With the use of primary and secondary colors in combination with neutrals, Jane created a lively tone for these spaces. Custom navy window treatments frame the seating area while the tufted Chadwick sofa and chairs provide comfort. Jane’s expertise in spatial planning was crucial to the layout of these rooms in order to maximize seating for family members.

(above left) The custom banquet bench opens for plenty of storage options and features textured faux cowhide pillows and custom cushions. (above right) The new entryway was set apart by shiplap accents which were carried into the shiplap columns and bench seating for continuity.

The Designer: Betsy Glass

The Challenge:

To transform the open floor plan that didn’t distinguish the dining room from the entryway into more of a cohesive space with clear columns for divisions.

Challenge Accepted:

Because the space has two exterior walls and plenty of daylight, but with an almost entirely open floor plan, it was Betsy’s goal to set both spaces apart, yet help them mingle. A banquet area with custom bench seating also serves as a storage space. Shiplap throughout created a singular backdrop for the round table and complementary fabrics in shades of off-white, navy blue, and faux fur suede finish the room effectively.

The Challenge:

To shape the homeowner’s love for antiques and a traditional style around her heirloom piano.

Challenge Accepted:

Edie partnered with the homeowner on this Kiawah Island home to create the ideal traditional setting, filled with rich colors and antiques, entirely inspired by the box baby grand piano that the homeowner inherited from a family member. After reupholstering the red wing-back chairs and having the pembrook and table restored (all of which she bought from an old Charleston family downtown), it was clear to Edie that the room also needed a custom piano bench to complete the look and provide the perfect seating.

SPACIOUS WATERFRONT POOL With an automated pool cover the stress of having to clean the pool on a daily basis is alleviated. 2 1

When in use, the automatic pool cover will slide over the water, completely covering it from leaves and other debris that could sneak in.

2 An automatic pool cover is a great option for added safety with kids running around; there’s no need to worry about them falling in when the pool is covered.

3 Automatic pool covers are low maintenance and easy to use allowing them to spend more time with friends and family, and less time cleaning out the pool. For more information about this pool contact Pool Cover Solutions at (843) 766-0289 or visit pcs-se.com.
