Project Reveal: Kiawah River

Welcome to the reveal of our Kiawah River project! As mentioned in the name, this John’s Island home backs right up to the Kiawah River, surrounded by beautiful marsh grass and hanging Spanish moss. This home is filled with fun pops of color and print, and I’m so excited to finally share it with you all.

Front Porch

Starting on the front porch, we kept it classic with these cushioned rattan chairs, perfect for lounging and admiring the beautiful scenery. We added in a pop of color with these leafy green printed lumbar pillows to match the faux elephant ear drop in from our shop.

Living Room

As you’ll see in this home, there is an abundance of comfy seating for our clients to host and entertain. We were so thrilled they embraced the experimental prints and patterns we proposed– this living room is filled with fun pillows, upholstered chairs, and an upholstered ottoman. When imagining this room, we pictured cozy family game nights and memories made around the fireplace.

Dining Room

We kept this dining room clean and bright with white walls and white dining chairs with the addition of these funky blue upholstered end chairs! The showstopping glass globe light fixture really ties the entire space together, giving us that beachy lowcountry luxe feel. This theme carries over into the artwork above the storage console titled “Lowcountry Glow” available for purchase on our site. These pink glass lamps framing the art give that beachy seaglass feel with a bonus pop of color.


This kitchen proves that there is beauty in simplicity– we kept things ultra crisp and simple with white cabinets and silver hardware fixtures. This wood-stained island with textured woven fixtures gives us all of the beachy feels, accented by bright white countertops and backsplash. The acrylic barstools with green cushions stay true to our theme of pops of color without being too distracting! Arguably my favorite part of this kitchen is the extra long runner we selected– it adds so much interest and warmth to the space.

Bar & Pantry

Tucked behind a sliding glass barn door, the bar area is definitely one of the highlights of this home– I was so stoked when our clients gave us the green light to use this tropical printed wallpaper! Cocktails shaken and served from the pass through window … Need I say more?

Family Room

As I mentioned before, we had so many opportunities for comfy sitting areas in this home! And with seating, comes upholstery– one my favorite ways to add character and personality into a home. With white shiplap and a white plastered fireplace, we had flexibility to add color and patterns back into this space. This pink printed chaise lounge is the ultimate afternoon nap spot with sunny views of the backyard. These four blue upholstered chairs surrounding the round burl wood coffee table foster the perfect environment for conversation and hosting. One of my favorite space saving hacks we included in this space is the two ottomans tucked away under the console table! This allows for bonus seating that can be easily hidden when not in use. See the "Lounging Lady" art piece available for purchase on our site.

Powder Bath

This powder bathroom is so lively and fun with allover blue printed wallpaper. I love to play with prints in smaller spaces as you’ll see throughout! The textured mirror and rattan sconces framing the vanity really channel the coastal influence I was hoping to convey.

Laundry Room

The pineapple printed walls of this laundry room are sure to stop you in your tracks! I love to experiment with prints in areas like this in the home– laundry rooms are often neglected, but they hold so much potential to be inviting spaces that make you, dare I say, look forward to laundry day?

Primary Bedroom

This primary bedroom feels so dreamy with blue toned curtains and beaded chandelier fixture. We kept things neutral aside from the pops of blue, with an added bench at the foot of the bed for additional storage. Shop a very similar blue / grey toned woven rug on our site here. Also available on our site is this beautiful marsh scene artwork we styled above the chest of drawers.

Primary Bath

I love the look of subway tile when it’s done in an elegant way like this! We kept it simple in this primary bathroom with natural wood stained cabinets and white countertops.

Over by the tub and glass walk-in shower, we placed this earthy toned turkish rug to really bring out the marble pattern in the tile. And of course, the ambience is all tied together with the glass hanging chandelier above the tub. I adore how the brass finishes and hardware are brought out in this space. Shop the look with the Loman Stool available on our site.

Guest Bedroom 1

As you will see in this home, we had a few guest bedrooms that allowed us to play with the different themes of this project. When envisioning this particular space, we wanted to embody all of the “sunset palmetto” vibes. With a blue and pinky color palette, we also played around with texture to give this room a serene coastal feel.

Guest Bath

In this bathroom, we kept the same tile as used in the primary– a gorgeous earthy toned marble to accent the brass hardware. We placed another chandelier above the tub which really takes the luxury up a notch.

Guest Bedroom 2

It’s all about the accents in this second guest bedroom– leather details, black hardware, and pops of navy blue. Experimenting with textures and tones make spaces like this so unique and I’m so happy with the beachy feel that this combination creates.

With even more bonus space in this room, we were able to create the slumber party spot of our dreams with this built in bunk area. Perfectly tucked away and kept a crisp bright white, this design is simple yet effective. Also, how fun are these graphic map printed comforters?

Guest Bath 2

This guest bath packs a punch with this striking tile print all over! Playing with print in both wallpaper and floor tiles is a practice we love to suggest to our clients. As seen in this guest bath– it makes a world of difference even in the simplest of spaces.

Guest Bedroom 3

Keeping a similar feel in this third guest bedroom, we wanted to keep the coastal energy with the textured woven headboard. This striking striped rug really makes the details pop! Above the console are two of my favorite pressed palm leaf prints, available for purchase on our site.


We wanted to ensure that our clients would have plenty of seating areas on their back deck overlooking the gorgeous river views. With outdoor grade upholstery on these swivel chairs, we created a sweet spot to relax with friends and family and admire the scenery.

This concludes the tour of our Kiawah River project. I hope you were able to take some inspiration from these colorful spaces! It helps tremendously when these homes are surrounded by such lush scenery– I always hope to channel that lowcountry beauty in my designs.
