Journey past the front hallway and you’ll be amazed. Trust me when I say taking a walk through this home was mesmerizing – every direction you see something new.
The living room… which might be thought of as an art gallery (in a viewers opinion!)
Where do we start? The back wall? The dining room? How about the adorable little woodwork that are sitting on the frame of this living room opening?
A fireplace to talk about
Can you image having a nice relaxing fire with your friends and family and just exploring the history of the artwork that is framing this fireplace – you would never run out of things to talk about.
One thing you will DEFINITELY see down South is Gullah Art work. Here are a few pieces I found extra ordinary.
Let’s take a moment to appreciate the fact that this DOOR is actually a giant painting

You will see a little bit of everything in this dining room.. AND you will even see some live plants to add a bit of freshness!
A home that is an art gallery must be unique.. meaning, of course it has a stop light indoors!
How often is it that you can walk into a home and see a traffic light framing an art piece with a meaningful quote.
Eccentric that makes you wonder exactly how the artist came up with such creativity
Yes.. it did take me a moment to figure out this piece, but once you realize what the secret word is your mind is blown!
An open roof and white furniture allows the lighting to be natural in this house and the furniture to be subtle and not distracting
White trim, soft yellow walls, and neutral colored furniture seems to just connect this entire living room together. The art work really pops!
Lastly a sun room that has interesting pieces to enjoy while sipping sweet tea at the end of the night
Hey.. there’s even a stack of books you could read if you really wanted. Although, I’m sure in this house they might be historical and have some sort of artistic significance. 😉
