This home was the first home constructed in the Wilson Village area of Palmetto Bluff in the early 2000s. The original heartwood pine floors, woodworking and paint had aged into a yellowed patina and the home needed to be refreshed.

Lead designer, Rebecca Scott & associate designer Evan Robinson, worked closely with the homeowner to create her vision of a bright, welcoming, home with nods to the Lowcountry by incorporating natural materials such as wood, metal, glass & oyster shell. Even the ceilings throughout most of the home were painted light blue, which is prevalent throughout the South on porch ceilings.

The floors were refinished to their beautiful, natural color, while the walls and woodwork were painted a crisp white shade to brighten the space. In the master bedroom, beams and shiplap were added to the ceiling for added visual interest. The kitchen was totally transformed by adding new backsplash & countertops. By painting the existing cabinetry and the soffit above the same color, it visually leads the eye up making the cabinets look taller.

Most of the furnishings were reused and made to look new again using paint, new hardware & fresh, new fabrics to complement the pieces. Some new furnishings, soft goods & art were also added in shades of blue and green to bring nature inside and refresh the home’s design.

This home is a luxury rental with the Montage Hotel and Resort in Palmetto Bluff, so our choices were made with an investor’s budget and a semi-commercial approach to our textiles and case goods. By minimizing the accessories throughout the home, and adding interest in other ways with color and texture, Rebecca ensured that all guests will feel welcome in this home, and have plenty of room to enjoy the space.
