Charleston Style & Design Features Daniel Island Project

January 11, 2024

Charleston Style & Design magazine- a leading publication in all things design and lifestyle in the Lowcountry- featured one of our Daniel Island projects in its Winter 2024 issue. This project, which can also be found on the cover, had its own feature article.

The article, Mixed Media, discusses the importance of working with impressive natural views instead of competing against them. We approached this project with a natural color palette, layered textures, and just a bit of drama. 

This home needed to be comfortable for two, but also have the ability to accommodate a crowd.

When we say a home should ‘live well,’ we mean it has to be beautiful, comfortable, and welcoming, but it also has to be practical in all of the ways that make life easier. -Margaret Donaldson

The kitchen and living room are truly the heart of the home and needed to be designed for living. We balanced the white backdrops of these rooms with warm accents and pops of color. We used matching wood beams on the kitchen ceiling, range hood, and living room mantle to pull the spaces together. The blue tones from the living room artwork are reflected in the banquette chairs and the copper pendant in the kitchen. The subtle blue and orange living room throw pillows complement the rest of the blues and the warm wood beams throughout this space.

One instance of bold design in this Dreamy Daniel Island home is the formal dining room, painted in a burnt orange. With all of the glass in this room, it was the perfect room to add some surprising drama. The white chairs are lined with dark leather cording to help disrupt the light neutrals of the rug and drapes. You can find this room featured on the cover of the issue!

We carried the textured neutrals into the primary suite, complemented by more blues and greens and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that showcase the natural beauty of the Daniel Island marsh. Each of the additional five rooms upstairs has its own unique personality while still maintaining the flow of the rest of the house.

This Charleston Style & Design article is such an honor and we hope that you love this Daniel Island project as much as we do! If you’re looking for more Lowcountry interior design inspiration, be sure to check out our portfolio!
