Let us introduce you to our Wading Place Project.
This beautiful modern home located on Daniel Island already had great bones. Tall ceilings, unique architectural features and an open-concept floor plan provided us the chance to play a bit more on the modern side.
We elevated this space with furnishings and accessories that brought in warmth, texture, and of course, a nod to the low-country with several natural elements.
As you enter through the giant glass door, you are immediately greeted by a custom shelf area styled with earthy decorative elements, such as a geode, branches, palmetto grass baskets, and pottery. We chose to add a fun small painted canvas from local artist, Jenn Griffith.
Also in the entryway, a hide console with a sleek, modern mirror leaned against the wall. When working with shiplap, it is difficult and less than desirable to drill holes in the wall; therefore, we chose to lean the mirror against the wall instead. One of our favorite entryway additions is a candle so your entryway is always inviting and smells wonderful. Adding poufs under the console provides additional seating and fills the seemingly-empty space under the console.
The open concept dining room can sometimes pose a challenge because you want to make sure it looks like a designated eating space. This client wanted a large table with comfortable chairs for entertaining. We love to incorporate fun and unique end-chairs to a dining table because typically those spots are designated for the host. A textured printed rug adds a more casual and comfortable feel to this sleek space. Of course, we added some unique faux palms and branches that can stay on the table and dress it up all year round.
Our favorite feature in a kitchen is the lighting. Because of the simplicity of the kitchen, we were able to incorporate large kitchen pendants that make a statement. When working with kitchen cabinets that are open or glass, it's fun to incorporate unique and decorative glassware and tableware. We mixed the client’s black dishes with some fun decorative objects such as a large clam shell bowl, vases with faux herbs, and some wood jars and canisters. Always make sure to incorporate different objects of varying heights.
For the living space, we wanted to provide plenty of seating for gathering and entertaining. Leather chairs that are made with performance leather fabric make this space feel luxurious. The custom art pieces were painted by one of our own designers, Ellen, and brought a dusty yet earthy color scheme. We always love inviting the outdoors in. This neutral and rich color scheme was different from any project we have done, but really shows that the modern-coastal style can be reinvented and brought to life in any home.
