Southern Living Inspired Home on Bald Head Island! Making Progress!

It’s hard to believe that it’s the middle of July!  It’s a time for salt air and sandy feet. Well, we’ve been putting a spin on beach fun this summer! We are thrilled to be designing the Southern Living Inspired Home on Bald Head Island, North Carolina.


This week was a whirlwind of travel and design decisions. Construction is progressing beautifully thanks to the hard work of the Whitney Blair Custom Homes crew. It’s a true team effort and starts with a fabulous plan by Allison Ramsey Architects.


It was a hot July day on the island, but that didn’t stop the hammers and saws and tape measures. Kenny, the on-site Project Manager with a can-do attitude, is working hard to bring the design vision to life. This home will be perfect for coastal living and relaxing….from the sleeping porch to outdoor shower, built-in beds to banquette seating. It would be just perfect for my family (and future grandchildren). Just sayin’!


The view from the front porch is nothing but lush with the natural beauty of live oak trees. It’s not a bad place to spend a day at work, especially when it includes a private boat ride back to the mainland from favorite clients on the island. And the next day it was off to market in Atlanta…


….and shopping from morning ’til night. These fabulous finds might just have a ferry ride in their future.


We often say that as interior designers we need to cover it all, from electrical plans and cabinetry layouts to window treatments and fine linens. We can’t wait to see all of the hard work come together this fall!

A true Southern Living partnership…
