The Charlestonian is an imaginative transformation of a 1940s colonial, inspired by traditional Southern hospitality fused with modern accents and finishes. The interiors were gut renovated, and new sunrooms, a swimming pool, and a detached three-car garage structure were seamlessly added. In the interior, ornate millwork detailing was designed, including the staircase, living-room fireplace mantle, and museum wall niches, which anchor the living spaces and create an air of architectural permanence. Layers of supple wall coverings, serene palettes, and textured upholstery are juxtaposed with the white millwork and trim. The new kitchen/breakfast room, flush with light and humble wood surfaces, is the perfect setting for family meals and casual entertaining.
