House Tour: Sullivan’s Island

We just got back from a fabulous family trip to the lovely Sullivan’s Island. It was the perfect place to while away Easter week with people we love — despite the rainy weather!

 And when you get to spend the week tucked away in a beautiful cottage like this one, it really doesn’t even matter what’s going on outside.

 So it’s no coincidence that Sullivan’s Island, one of its sister beaches, is also one of our favorites.

Every cottage in Sullivan’s Island is great, but we are quite partial to the ones built and designed by Sea Island Builders. All those little details that make a house feel like home are the ones that these builders add in droves. And if you’ve ever done a building project, you know that finding a builder who can bring your vision to life is paramount.

kitchen

 Just look at this kitchen! Gorgeous and modern but also as beachy as can be. We just adore open shelving in beach kitchens.

 That view is so stunning! Even on those days when you can’t be outside, you can still feel like a part of the landscape.

 An accent color in the back of a cabinet adds so much pizazz. We would always choose a perfect shade of blue like this for a beach house.

dining
 When we weren’t dining alfresco in this stunning home, we would love gathering around this charming dining table. The basket chandelier is a great touch.

 These wide plank, white floors lend so much character to the home. They add an antique, lived-in feel to the home.

We love a statement chandelier, especially over a dining table.

 This shell fireplace adds loads of character to the living room. 

banister

 We are obsessed with this rope-covered banister! It’s so Island chic!

porches

The blue-painted ceiling not only keeps the bugs away but also adds loads of personality to this porch.

 And look at this view! That’s what porches are all about! Wherever you’re sitting this week, we hope the view is great!

Dining Alfresco

 Despite the fact that it doesn’t seem like it will ever get warm here in our corner of the South, we feel confident that it’s almost time for dining alfresco!

You know already that outdoor living spaces are some of our all-time favorites.

For lounging, relaxing and, of course, dining, there’s nothing like the great outdoors.

 And, as with any good party, the more the merrier!

 We may not use a formal dining room all that much, but creating one outside seems like the best idea we’ve heard in some time.

 And there’s no doubt that the outdoor dining room can be just as chic and well decorated as the indoor one!

 Dining alfresco takes the idea of dining in from TV dinner to totally fabulous.

 And makes an intimate meal with family automatically seem like an event.

 And speaking of events… This alfresco situation is certainly one of large proportion. We’d like to be guests!

From the large and spectacular to intimate yet well-planned, every meal in the fresh spring air seems like a big event. 

We hope you and yours had a wonderful Easter weekend and are so happy that you are spending part of your Easter Monday with us! We hope it’s a wonderful start to an amazing week!

Striking Stripes

Red and white stripes…

Peppermint candy stripes…

On the floor stripes…

Wear out the door stripes!

Striped glasses for having it made in the shade.

Stripes in the kitchen — and on the couch!

Bow-and-knot stripes… Bowl-and-white stripes. Stripes-on-top-of-polka-dots stripes!

 And stripes of the most unexpected kind — in materials of shiniest shine.

We just love big, bold, luscious stripes… Fashion stripes, interior design stripes, glamorous silk and gray stripes.

For long, warm, sunny days lounging by the seashore and getting your toes in the sand, stripes fit the bill almost as breezily as the wind.

 And there’s nothing like stripes for wiping those sandy feet in style. Wishing you a stripes-and-barefoot kind of weekend! (With a little sun and sand!)

Thanks for kicking off your long Easter weekend with us! If you have Monday off, we hope you’re doing something extra fun and relaxing, surrounded by people you love — and hordes of chocolate eggs, of course.

ThingsWeLove:StackedKitchenCabinets

We don’t know about you, but whenever we start thinking about kitchen decorating ideas, it’s those kitchen cabinets that are always at the forefront of our mind.

Maybe it’s because cabinets take up the majority of the square footage of the kitchen, but we think they are on of the elements that, if not implemented properly can really ruin the look of a beautiful remodel.
