Project Reveal: Captain's Hideaway

Located on beautiful Captain’s Island in South Carolina is our latest design project, Captain’s Hideaway. Working alongside Delpino Custom Homes who chose all the finish selections, we were able to furnish the home with a more modern, clean, and minimal look.


Step into the foyer where we made a statement with a silvery blue grasscloth wallpaper. One of the most captivating pieces in this space is the driftwood console, which was originally in the clients’ home, but just needed a white paint refresh. Staged just above the console is an oversized shagreen mirror. Mirrors are an entryway staple, because they create the illusion of more space. We finished the foyer with a grand brass light fixture and a classic vintage rug.

Powder Bath

This bright powder bath is one of the more unique spaces in the home, featuring scalloped white oak trim details on the floating vanity. The abstract wallpaper brings a modern twist, and is contrasted with a natural white mirror (Denali Mirror). The powder bath is finished with one of our favorite staple scents, the Cortina Tobacco Scented Candle.


In the stairway our clients wanted to pursue a new take on shiplap, choosing a unique white reeded wall panel design. We chose a larger lighting fixture that would be visible from the street when looking through the window - allowing 6 ½ feet of clearance for people to walk up and down the stairs.


This simple yet contrasting kitchen features an oversized, linear light. The barstools chosen were a dark brown woven material that almost reads black, which contrasts nicely with the marble countertop. To finish it off, the stovetop hood was plastered by local artist, Emily Pope Harris to give an extra touch of texture to the space.


The open-concept dining space is located right in between the kitchen and living area. Surrounded by modern yet comfortable dining chairs, this contemporary dining table features a tambour base and oblong top. The softness of the shape allows for a more organic flow of movement though the living space. In the center of the table lies one of our favorite staple centerpieces, the Free Form Bowl filled with two large Phalaenopsis Orchid Drop-Ins and some Spanish Moss.


Symmetry is an age-old design principle that creates a calming sense of balance in any space. This living room demonstrates symmetry while exemplifying elements of asymmetry, creating a unique balance. Curating a mixed and matched sequence of throw pillows, we also created an unbalance through the shelf and coffee table decor. As seen in the kitchen, plastering by Emily Pope Harris covers the wall space above the fireplace.

Primary Bed + Bath

Dusty purples and blues were used throughout this grandiose primary bedroom, giving it a calming yet playful feel. The drapes were made with a whimsical lavender print by Rebecca Atwood Designs. Some of the most special custom elements of this space are the pillows - they were made using a print of one of our clients’ favorite textile designers, Michelle Owenby. The lumbar pillow features hand-painted palmetto leaves and the euros feature a unique watercolor pattern.


One of the most eclectic office spaces we have done, this office was designed for a formal Naval officer. The reeded detail which is seen in the stairwell is replicated in the built-in shelves but in a natural wood material. Each shelf is illuminated by LED strips to highlight the collected decor and frames which are styled meticulously. Centered in the middle of the wall is a custom art piece by Michelle Owenby which is an abstract take on an American flag. Stars can also be found on the draperies on the windows, giving a nod to the central art piece. The most surprising element of this office space is the secret "hideaway" that is revealed by pulling a single book.
