folly beach design plan

When a lovely reader from Salt Lake City emailed me for help decorating an old cedar shake bungalow she just purchased on Folly Beach, South Carolina, I jumped at the chance!  Even better?  Her only request was that the entire house be black and white with lots of texture, a beautiful backdrop for her rustic, antique furniture, planked walls and ceilings and collectibles from her travels that would create a comfy, cozy vibe but wouldn’t detract from her amazing ocean view.  Done and done!  Originally from Massachussets, my client wanted to infuse a little New England vibe with subtle nautical influences, rustic lighting and lots of seagrass, reclaimed wood and comfortable furnishings.  Here is a little taste of some of the loveliness we’ve decided on, with lots more to come:

Please forgive me for not including sourcing information on this one – because this is a paying client, I didn’t think it was fair to post!

If you are in need of decorating help and don’t know where to start, please contact me at  Happy Tuesday!

    Gorgeous! Black and white with lots of texture sounds like my kind of beach house. Hope we get a peek of the progress along the way!

    Kate – since it's an e-client, I might not have progress pics, but definitely after shots! 🙂
