Recently MDI won the 1st place ASID Award for a master bathroom that is a true oasis. The home also won a 2nd place ASID Award for Vacation Home and an Honorable Mention for the dining room and bar. Last week we took you on a tour of the main living areas of this incredible 5,500 sq. ft. house, and today we’re going to show you around that award-winning master bathroom. Ready to relax?
Today we’re giving you a behind-the-scenes peek at one of our famous Sip & Sees from a recent renovation on Vendue! When we finish a design project, we cater a nice spread and invite the rest of our team to meet the clients and see the finished space. Because we’re all working on different projects at once, this gives our team time to be inspired.

Powder rooms may be small, but they are opportunities to let your personality shine. Guests love a delightful powder room, so don’t be afraid to be bold. At MDI, we love paying close attention to the details of this very functional space. Here are some of our recent favorites:
Fall 2018 Interior Design Trends
With shorter daylight hours and a chill in the air, we get an almost irresistible urge to make some changes to our interior spaces that will sustain us until it’s beach weather again. Here are some of our favorite interior design trends for fall:
Home Tour: Refined Retreat
Today we’re excited to give you a home tour of one of our recent interior design projects in Charleston, South Carolina: A beautiful, refined retreat:
Crypton: A New Performance Fabric for Charleston Living
A Charleston home and the next generation of performance fabric is a match made in heaven. You might remember the earlier versions of ultra-durable fabrics: Scratchy, stiff, and not at all nice to touch. However, they were a necessary evil in industrial office spaces, hospitals, and beach rentals. Lucky for us Lowcountry dwellers, things have drastically changed.
Warm Colors are Trending
Crisp, sophisticated whites, grays, and indigos have dominated interior design trends in the last few years. While these combinations never go out of style, warm colors are making their way into Charleston interiors. Driven by the popularity of blush pinks and rose gold, we’re seeing the addition of toasty mustards, deeper shades of rose, terra cotta, rust, and even salmon (a perennial Charleston favorite).
MDI Goes to Chaddock College
Recently Margaret, Liz, Alex, Beth and Alexis had the opportunity to go to Chaddock College, a two-day immersive experience at the beautiful factory campus in Morganton, North Carolina.
MDI’s Favorite Accessories
Accessories can inspire an entire space or can be the perfect finishing touch. We definitely have our favorites, and our new design studio gives us plenty of room to display all of the decor accessories that we love. Here are some of our favorite accessories:
