Focused on Nature

Upon entry, this charming space feels inviting while keeping the focus on minimal design with a wildlife twist.

Bold and Beautiful

With blue, white and warm wood accents and bold patterns that give the space a unique identity, this great room reflects the home’s high-end design.

Modern Meets Traditional

A sleek dining table adds a touch of modern to this elevated space. Mixing a pop of color with painted farmhouse chairs adds eclectic accents that still feel streamlined.

Blue, White and Gray All Over

Soft tones of gray, white and blue create a serene backdrop in this inviting kitchen. A large custom island with sleek white counter space creates the perfect place to gather with family and friends.

Pop of Pattern and Color

A dazzling wallpaper with a graphic pattern creates a dramatic backdrop for the charming powder room that includes a clever upcycled vanity that looks like a piece of freestanding furniture.

A Curated Look

Operating as an extension of the master bedroom, the handsome open study includes an interesting mix of reclaimed items found in the home and local vintage finds that help bring history alive.

Tailored and Handsome

This relaxing haven in warm gray with blue and white accents combines geometric patterns with clean lines to create the perfect master bedroom.

Spa-Like Escape

A spacious double vanity, walls painted an earthy gray and a spa-like wet room with walk-in shower and traditional-style freestanding bathtub creates a showstopping master bathroom that offers peace and solitude from the rest of the home.

Restful Relaxation

The attractive and bright guest bedroom with buffalo check print drapery panels offers a cozy space for resting, with easy access to the deck and beautiful natural setting outside.

Wow-Worthy Charm

A shower/bath combo with a hinged glass door and green ceramic wall subway tiles in a nontraditional pattern that add dimension highlight this stylish guest bathroom that makes visitors feel right at home. Special touches, like a colorful rug, add character to the space.

Mountain Vibes

Four custom bunk beds with foam mattresses and a ship-style ladder to reach the top level sit ready for a sleepover in this fun space that reflects the mountain vibe of this Sapphire, North Carolina rustic retreat designed for modern living.
