Check Out Two Of Our Latest Projects

We hope everyone stayed safe during the hurricane last week and our thoughts are with those who were impacted. On the eve of the long weekend last week, two of our favorite projects came to a close and we are so happy for our new homeowners!

Our last Point Verona project is now home to a wonderful couple from DC who are excited to explore Charleston and the Lowcountry with their family. Despite working with us remotely, this couple’s vision of a coastal retreat seamlessly came to life over numerous conference calls, emails and Facetime sessions. Stay tuned as we partner with Emily Stallings of Stallings Studio to furnish and style the home for the professional photoshoot!

Our newly renovated home on Buist Avenue in Park Circle is also saying hello to its new homeowners this weekend. This house made a huge transformation during the renovation process and before picture can be found in our blog post from May 23rd, 2019. I know the new homeowners will enjoy the scenic duck pond view from their double-decker porches as they settle into their new home.

We could not have executed either of these homes without the help from our DCH team, subcontractors and suppliers. We want to thank everyone for their hard work and support in turning these projects into the homes and retreats that our homeowners will cherish with their families.

Our thoughts and prayers are going out to the Bahamas and to everyone who was affected by the hurricane.

Home With A Harbor View

Our second Point Verona home came to a close last week and we are thrilled with how it turned out! Located in the Point Verona community off of Harbor View Road, this home boasts an incredible view of the Charleston Harbor from the rooftop deck. These homeowners will enjoy sea breezes and cocktails (from the top floor wet bar) while watching sailboats zig-zag to Fort Sumter and back. The interior of the home has a transitional calmness where modern elements harmonize with traditional elements. The traditional picketed staircase threads through the home’s modern vertical floorplan from the great room to the rooftop. The great room encompasses the kitchen, living room and dining room and is bathed in natural light from a dozen oversized windows. The large wood-stained island is the main feature of the kitchen. It complements the darker variations seen in the light oak flooring that runs through-out the house. A leathered quartzite slab sits atop the cabinets where variegated grey and brown veining picks up on the wood-tones of the cabinets and the grey-tones of the tile backsplash. There is an underlying symmetry through-out the kitchen that demonstrates how well-thought-out the space is. Overall, we are excited for our homeowners to get settled into their new home and enjoy the harbor views.


A Modern Marsh View

We completed our first Point Verona home earlier this week and we couldn’t be happier for our new homeowners. This 4-story, vertical, James Island home is embellished with sleek modern finishes through-out and features an expansive marsh view from the rooftop deck.
The kitchen’s satin black cabinets are draped in a grey-veined, white quartz and accented with champagne bronze pulls. The angled Brizo, lux-gold, faucet with knurled detailing adds a touch of glamour to the kitchen and complements the glossy, handmade, herringbone tile splashed behind the gas range. The cone pendants’ sleek caged canopy profile is seen repeated in the ultra-modern, black and gold, Peregrine ceiling fan.
The design scheme is then carried into the powder room where a lucite & gold framed mirror magnifies the black & white, deco-tiled wall. The natural wood elements of the living room floating shelves and the powder room custom-made, floating vanity bring warmth to the space.
The marine wire staircase along with the three-dozen windows make this home bright, light and fresh. The wet bar and bathrooms are adorned with modern fixtures and geometric mosaic tiles while the shiplap-clad 3rd floor ceiling draws you up to the rooftop terrace. We can’t wait to see how house 2 & 3 turn out in our Point Verona project!

A Westside Story Row House Reno

This is the story of a traditional Charleston row house that meets a modern builder and the two fall in love to create a house that merges the two styles…and here’s the kicker- there is no second act, they live happily ever after.

If you tuned into PBS’s This Old House Charleston, or flipped through Charleston Home + Design’s Spring 2018 issue (Find us on pages 41, 145 & 200!), you are going to love our newest completed project. Located in the up & coming Westside neighborhood, in the heart of the peninsula and walking distance to trendy new upper King Street restaurants such as Leon’s Fine Poultry & Oyster Shop, Little Jack’s Tavern, and Melfi’s, this Charleston single got a much-needed make-over. Built in 1910, this house is considered a category 4 structure by the city and it maintains the historic integrity of the neighborhood. Part of the renovation process was restoring the original architectural features of this old house while also modernizing the livability of the home.

Our team ran into wood rot, termite damage, uneven floors, fire damage and everything else you would expect from a hundred-year-old house. They demolished all of the damage away and added crucial structural supports back to the house. Our team built out a two-story addition in the back for the living room and master suite. This was where the design challenge came into play: How to modernize the interior while still honoring the historic architecture of the exterior?

We decided to highlight certain historic features of the house like exposing the brick fireplaces, rebuilding the second-floor piazza, custom turning the porch newel posts to match the existing posts, adding exterior hurricane shutters and installing 5-panel doors through-out the interior. We then added modern touches through-out the interior like in the kitchen with the dark base cabinets and gold accents and in the master suite with the black and white tile design and the freestanding tub to complement the modern living floor plan. We added a large laundry room upstairs as well as a large master suite piazza that overlooks the private back yard and the one-hundred-year-old magnolia tree.

Take a look at these amazing before and after pictures of the incredible transformation of this historic Westside Charleston Row House. We enjoyed working on this project over the last few months and are excited to see homes all around Charleston being restored like this one.

(9) Freshen Up Your Outdoor Living

9 of 10 Ways Fall 2018

‘Tis the season for oyster roasts,  bonfires and holiday parties.  Spruce up your outdoor living area to maximize your entertaining space. Porches are not only great for enjoying the cool, crisp, fresh fall air, they are also great for holiday party overflow.   Throw some comfy porch furniture into the mix and  you will find yourself enjoying the outdoors with your whole family . Our pro-tip is to invest in some space heaters for those cold winter nights.

Porches or not the only feature that count as outdoor living. Take a look at your yard and see if you can define that space as it’s own “room.” Sometimes yards can have multiple “rooms” designated by patios, gardens, green space and tree groves. Outdoor living plays a crucial part in lowcountry living. Start to think about and plan how you are going to turn your yard into that extra living and entertaining space that you need. Will you have a patio? A flower and hedge  garden? A vegetable and herb garden? A pool and pool house? The possibilities are endless!

(8) Let There Be Light Fixtures

8 of 10 Ways Fall 2018

Overhead lighting is so much more than just ceiling cans. Choose statement pendants and chandeliers to be the design focus of your space. Chandeliers and pendants come in hundreds of shapes and sizes. Let us help you put together a complete look by working with our custom lighting vendors and design team.

Swing arm lights are huge right now. They are extremely versatile and find themselves situated in all rooms of the house. They work great to highlight custom built books shelves and they are perfect for bedside reading lamps. We love them in bathrooms as vanity lights as well in kitchens!

Check out our portfolio online for more examples of statement lights.

(7) Dress Up Your Walls Using Paint & Wallpaper

7 of 10 Ways Fall 2018

Dress up your walls with pops of color and fun wallpaper. New paint and wallpaper can refresh any room inside the house and outside the house. Go bold with a vibrant pink door or cool blue cabinets. We love how Sherwin Williams’ Pink Jaipur paint pairs with The Blush Label’s Little Palms wallpaper for this little girls bathroom suite to the right.

Colored cabinets are on  trend and will be showing up in more bold colors. We love the pop of Indigo Batik blue paint in the wetbar to the right and kitchen island below.

Finding the perfect neutral paint color can be challenging. There are endless hues of grey that can change colors in different settings or when paired with different colors. Our tried and true favorites that pair well with any color in any setting are Sherwin Williams’ Light French Grey, Repose Grey and Passive. We also love Farrow & Ball’s blue hued Parma Grey for that traditional Charleston porch ceiling color.
