Welcome to the South where coastal homes are regular and Southern hospitality is a given. Let’s take a walk through a coastal home that embraces the tones of the ocean with a superior interior style of class. Karen Wyman showed me her hospitality when she invited me into her home located on Cat Island, South Carolina.
The outside of this coastal home is gorgeous with the long white porch and two beautiful palm trees that fame the house perfectly.
The Front Porch
Rocking chairs.. gorgeous plants.. and a ceiling fan to cool off the summer nights. Such a classic look at southern charm!
The Living Room
The floors are dark, the walls are ocean green, and the natural lighting coming from the doors and windows compliment this room perfectly.
The white furniture and dark flooring was a wonderful choice as it creates contrast and automatically adds appeal to the living room. A stone fireplace compliments this living room where you will find fresh flowers, white trimming, and dark accent pieces.
You will find the same color scheme in this kitchen – dark floors and accent pieces complimented by the ocean green wall. The hickory-colored cabinets really give the coastal kitchen a pop of color!
The backsplash in this kitchen has tones of blue, green, and grey to meet the coastal theme. The teal jars add just enough color to keep it colorful yet tasteful.
The Dining Room
Simple, elegant, and decorated with a single coastal art piece. The drapery and natural lighting is just gorgeous!
The left hand side of the porch is open and made perfect for a warm summer night. The right side; screened in (to protect against those pesky coastal bugs)
Even the outdoor design follows that same coastal theme of ocean greens and blues and nautical decor. Wicker furniture and sea shells – it’s almost too cute!
Lastly.. let’s take a closer look at the coastal decor and smaller details of this magnificent home!
From the use of sea shells, to the use of blue as an accent color , to the choice of perfect furniture – this house pulls together so wonderfully.
A special thanks to Karen Wyman for sharing her home with us 🙂
…even her outfit matches her house – we LOVE it!
