House Tour: Sullivan’s Island Historic Stunner

Sullivan's Island House tour


We have a huge soft spot for historic homes, like this lovely one on Sullivan’s Island. 


Sullivan's Island foyer


The materials… The charm… The details. They are so hard to replicate–and maybe just as hard to preserve. 


Sullivan's Island dining room


Beau Clowney Architects and Sea Island Builders had their work cut out for them when maintaining the historic integrity of this historic Sullivan’s Island home while bringing it up to date for a new era. 


Sullivan's Island kitchen


They succeeded in saving as much of the original 1800s home as possible while giving the homeowner’s a functional space perfect for their family. 


Sullivan's Island kitchen


This stunning kitchen is case in point, maintaining the feel of a historic home but incorporating all the trappings of a modern chef’s kitchen. Even we would want to cook in this space. Or, well, at least sit on those cute stools and have a glass of wine…


Sullivan's Island living room


Exposed wood keeps the look historic and beachy, perfect for Sullivan’s Island,


Sullivan's Island bedroom


While painted ceilings add a freshness and brightness that contribute to the home’s light, bright feel. We adore the aged look of the paneling in this charming bedroom. It’s so chic!


Sullivan's Island bedroom


Vaulted ceilings make a smaller space seem open and airy, perfect for guests. And the modern fan is a fun touch. 


Sullivan's Island porch


The exterior of this home is truly special. 


Sullivan's Island pool


And that pool? Perfect for lounging all summer long! Wishing you a day that feels just like this!

Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).

What People are Saying About Slightly South of Simple:

SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE cuts right to the heart of what it means to be a born-and-bred Southerner, complete with the responsibilities, secrets and unique privileges that conveys. Kristy Woodson Harvey creates four women who are at once completely different yet utterly the same–and a town that you won’t ever want to leave. Interior design, family secrets, life on the coast… It’s easy to see why everyone is buzzing about SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE. –Cassandra King, bestselling author of The Same Sweet Girls
