Nestled within cobblestone streets and the moss-draped oaks of downtown Charleston, our remodel project began with a deep appreciation for the homes rich history and architectural significance. From the moment we crossed the threshold, we knew that preserving its charm would be paramount in every decision we made.

A Welcoming Entry

Recognizing the importance of the entryway as the first impression of the home, we set out to create a space that was both welcoming and sophisticated. Wallpaper with a timeless pattern added depth and interest, while updated lighting fixtures and a refined stair runner elevated the space to new heights. This cohesive design ensures that the entry seamlessly transitions into the rest of the home, setting the tone for elegance and warmth that awaits within.

The Culinary Haven

At the heart of this historic abode lies the kitchen - a space where old-world charm meets modern convenience. Drawing inspiration from the homes timeless aesthetic, we embarked on a journey to transform this culinary haven into a functional masterpiece. Antique heart pine floors were lovingly treated, while custom cabinetry in a light blue hue added a touch of elegance and elevated the space. State-of-the-art appliances were strategically placed to optimize workflow, and marble countertops exuded luxury. The original fireplace was left to be, as it encompasses the history of the home. A custom-made banquette nestled by the fireplace provided the perfect spot for morning coffee, bathed in the soft glow of sconces above.

Laundry Swap

In a stroke of creativity, we reimagined the layout of the home, swapping the cramped laundry room for a powder bathroom that had fallen into disuse. The result was a spacious and functional laundry room that transformed the chore of laundry into a serene and enjoyable experience. Light and bright green hues created an atmosphere of tranquility, with wallpaper and paint selections that ties seamlessly into the overall aesthetic. Custom window treatments added a touch of elegance while providing privacy, and the inclusion of a farmhouse sink and other beautiful plumbing fixtures elevated the space to sophistication. Ample storage ensured that every item had its place, making this revamped laundry room a joy to behold and utilize.

Powder Bath Swap

Meanwhile, the powder bathroom received a moody makeover, with deep blue high-gloss paint, setting the stage for a dramatic transformation. The old laundry room was cramped and not functional for the needs of the new homeowner, so a swap was a necessity. This previous hall closet was the perfect place for a small but useful powder bathroom. A custom stone sink became the focal point, exuding timeless elegance, while mood lighting enhanced the atmosphere and invited guests to admire the space.
