DANIEL ISLAND SOUTH CAROLINA
GUEST BEDROOM SUITE
Designing a second home for clients is in some ways more of an open slate. The treasures of home usually stay there - while the "lightness" needed for a second residence is evident. New things are possible and fun - new ideas - new aesthetics that are nuanced into the personal style that should always still remain. This project on Daniel Island started with a renewal of tossing out some of the old 'hoping to make work' furnishings and bringing in the new.
My clients are traditionalists - so we had to keep that flavor while reviving the classic looks in a more contemporary way.
Their newly built home came from the builder with a classic white throughout - so much fun to work with. So unifying - and enveloping when it is the right white - which it happily was. I have great respect for the design sensibilities that have come before me. Changing that beautiful white would never have been an option to consider.
