Among two other awards, we received an Honorable Mention for design for a singular space at the ASID conference a few weeks ago. MDI received the recognition specifically for the work we did on a home at Turtle Beach, Kiawah Island.
We faced a large, open living, dining, and kitchen area with an aim to make it a fun and beach-y space. It was important for the rooms to flow with one another, plus this singular space needed to be functional as a place for kids as well as adults.
Our biggest challenge was hiding a return-air vent. Our solution was to have a table custom-made to effectively obscure it. We addressed the blackout curtain needs per the island regulations in order to protect the sea turtle population. This is one of the most adorable design concerns we can think of! We managed to soften the space by repeating floor-to-ceiling blackout-lined draperies throughout the home.
Have a look at some of the details below, and keep your eyes peeled for specifics on our third award in next week’s post!
