modern inside, coastal cottage outside

Clients often ask us how they can mix their personal modern style with a home in one of the local communities, which requires a traditional coastal cottage exterior. It can be hard to pull this off. You don’t want the interior of the home to completely ignore the home’s exterior architecture and setting. At the same time, every home needs to reflect the personal touches of its owners.

We recently had a fantastic home finish up construction in Watersound West Beach. The owners hired local interior designer Barbara Gordon to help them with their interior selections. The result is awesome and I felt I had to share. In particular, I think they did a great job with the tile and lighting. I think those two items can be among the hardest to pick for a house – there are so many choices out there. It can all be a bit overwhelming. It’s hard to stay energized and keep searching for just the right pieces for the home. In this case, I think they pulled it off in spectacular fashion.

I hope you enjoy touring this house as much as I did.
