Another Project Complete. Just in time for Thanksgiving.

While working on the coast, I was able to visit some wonderful clients who recently moved in to their new home in Sunset Beach, North Carolina. The house is in the perfect location, overlooking the golf course and close to the beach. I don’t want to wish my life away, but retirement sure does sound good!

Here’s the group…..three couples who have become friends during the construction of their homes, along with the Whitney Blair team.


Another beautiful kitchen by Kirk Riffel with Creative Cabinetry….custom cabinets beyond compare.


I wanted to share a few details in the house that are personal favorites. Since this “retirement” home is relaxed and casual, the formal dining room was eliminated and replaced by an oversized dining area adjacent to the kitchen. The long banquet table is accented by two lantern-style chandeliers.


I love the crushed glass used in the mosaic tile of the backsplash (sorry for the poor photography).


Sometimes it’s the simple detail and use of color that has the greatest impact. In the adorable granddaughter’s room the walls are a beautiful raspberry color accented with wainscoting and peg details. A favorite trick is to add impact by painting the interior doors….the drama of black!


Melodie and Jerry, thank you for a wonderful start to the Thanksgiving holiday! It’s hard to believe that you hosted a beautiful cocktail party just TEN days after moving in to your home. Here’s to many years of happy retirement memories!
