Last month we shared the renovation of the historic Dock Street Theater featuring traditional Charleston interior design. Near the beach, such as our Isle of Palms and Kiawah Island interior design projects, contemporary design is almost always in order. However, on the Charleston peninsula, especially south of Broad, traditional design still reigns.
If you’re lucky enough to have a room with a view, you want the scenery to take center stage – not the furniture. Here’s some inspiration for highlighting an outside focal point:
The anatomy of a project. This is a subject that we haven’t touched on lately. We thought we would roll out some of the projects that were photographed back in the spring. This ocean front Kiawah project is a recent favorite. Our clients were delightful and their desires for the home were right in line with what we wanted to see in the space. With the home’s inverted floor plan, the main living area is three stories up, creating a 180 degree view of the ocean!
Today, we’ve got the Osborne and Little Spring Collection including Osborne and Little and Lorca.
Sure, each season brings forth a whole new range of patterns and colors, trims and wallpapers! But all of those beautiful textiles are more than just one company’s passing whim.
Have you ever wondered how we get to the final result? Where did that drapery detail come from? How did we decide to put that particular pattern on the wall?
Leave it to Kate Spade and the fashion world to bring us yet another brilliant trend…color blocking. With another line of spring fashion upon us, color blocking is proving that it is around for a while.
For us, this relationship really began on the storied streets of Charleston, SC. Margaret, Elizabeth (our MDI numbers cruncher), Mariana and Rhett all grew up together, spending their days amongst the cobblestone streets and single houses of Charleston. It was only fitting that Croghan’s would give MDI a call to help them create an exclusive upper room so that clients might peruse potential purchases privately.
