We have a huge soft spot for historic homes, like this lovely one on Sullivan’s Island.
The materials… The charm… The details. They are so hard to replicate–and maybe just as hard to preserve.
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.
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.
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…
Exposed wood keeps the look historic and beachy, perfect for Sullivan’s Island,
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!
Vaulted ceilings make a smaller space seem open and airy, perfect for guests. And the modern fan is a fun touch.
The exterior of this home is truly special.
And that pool? Perfect for lounging all summer long! Wishing you a day that feels just like this!
Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day! We always love seeing you here.
