This Kiawah Island home was designed to be durable for the large extended family to enjoy with ease and comfort. From distressed woods, stain treatments and the use of indoor/outdoor fabrics, to the focus on function throughout the design, each room captures the essence of practical island living.
When the homeowners first set foot on their Kiawah Island oceanside property, they joyfully stood with their arms outstretched. “We want the house to be open to the ocean,” they said. “We love to host our family and friends that are spread out all over the country. We also want a home where they’ll feel welcome,” they said.

Interior design trends are taking a definite turn in 2017. Some tried-and-true elements that have anchored décor for nearly a decade are on their way out, making room for fresh, new interior expression.
One of the most important concepts in good design is giving important art, furniture and objects room to breathe. That means leaving enough space around them so that you can appreciate them, either consciously or subconsciously.
You may have heard a designer say that a home should have a “sense of place.” That means homes just feel more comfortable when the materials, furniture, and decor elements relate to the home’s environment.
Two-tone kitchen cabinets are a lovely design trend that has classic staying power. The trick is getting the split balanced with enough contrast so that you notice, but not so much that it’s jarring. Some of our favorite kitchen interior design projects are on Kiawah Island, and many of them feature two-tone cabinets.
Whether you work at home or just like to have a command post for running the household, your home office can, and should, blend with the rest of your home.
