The Studio… Our new home for all things Design

 

We are so excited to announce the opening of our new Design Studio in Old Town Bluffton.

It is where our design team will call home, where our client meetings and cocktail parties will happen and where we can show off the latest and greatest in design trends. 

Our amazing vendors and trades show off their skills in this small space by featuring the latest and greatest in trim details, tile, reclaimed wood, colors and lighting. We’ve also worked very hard to make this space inviting and comfortable for all our friends to feel welcome to stop by and have some of our Shoreline Blend espresso coffee and snacks. Or watch out for our monthly happy hours which will be starting very soon! 

Design is one of the most important pieces to the Shoreline puzzle and one that makes us very unique in the lowcountry building industry. We think it is more than important to have designers on staff and assigned to every client in order to make the process smooth, stress free and to get the end dream home the client envisioned. As Chris says, we are a design firm that happens to build amazing houses.

It’s Fall Y’all…. Kind of!

Tips for easy Fall Décor you can actually do yourself!

 SO its September! In the lowcountry where we have been dying of heat for months on end, this month is always a welcomed break in all things summer. Even though we still have massive heat eaves for another month or two, we can at least pretend its cooler by making our home feel cozy and festive.

Here are some tips for sprucing up your home for fall gatherings:

1) Pumpkins!

They are cheap and abundant this time of year! Paint them white and place them on your table, chests, front porch, chairs, kitchen and anywhere with a surface! This makes for a modern and clean way to bring in fall! If you are not into white, stamp them, sponge paint over leaves or even glue crayons to the top and use a hair dryer to melt them so they are rainbow! SO many choices, so little time!

2) The biggest asset in fall décor is……. Our fireplaces!

Come on, we all know that we don’t use them very often and they are more for decorating and hanging stockings than actually keeping us warm, but who doesn’t love a good fall mantle?! Use flowers, real or fake in various height vases with a DIY wreath in the middle to hold it together!

3) Wreaths

Also, you can DIY another wreath for the front door! Welcome in guests and family with a beautiful front porch! Gather mums, pumpkins, hay, large vases and planters and of course a wreath to tie it all in. There are so many DIY wreath sites out there. I love these few with fabric, green moss, letters, leaves, acorns and etc!

4) Tablescapes

Tablescapes are also important to not forget. Tie fake leaves with fishing line to create a display hanging from your lighting to avoid a large centerpiece you would have to move to have conversations! Use small pumpkins as a place marker by monogramming them with a paintbrush.

Enjoy this time of year, go grab a pumpkin spice latte, crank you’re a/c way down and pretend its actually fall weather! It will be here someday!

Why Designers?

The unique part of our business that sets us a part from all the other lowcountry builders is that we have 4 on staff designers that are assigned to each and every client to help walk them through decisions from day

1. Design isn’t just paint colors and furniture, in building its everything from light switch placement to trim details to stain colors to roof materials and much more. All of these tiny things that go into making your home exactly what you had dreamed have to be chosen in the process and we make sure to walk you through step by step so that it is a fun and enjoyable experience! We know it can be very overwhelming, especially for those that have a hard time visualizing the end result. Our designers go with our clients to vendor appointments, communicate at every step, walk the property, monitor progress and work with our site superintendents to finish the home on budget, on time and avoiding as many headaches as possible along the way. 

Whether you are using our plans or we are designing your dream home from scratch, we make this process as easy and fun as possible. That’s why we are a true Design-Build firm.
