In the meantime, guess what I get to do tomorrow morning?! It's my fabric shopping day!!! I am like a kid before Christmas the day before. I'll be up and at the doors when they open (with all three kids). Maybe I'll hit the jackpot. It's always a hit or miss. I'm due a big score, so maybe God will be good to me:)
To appease you, I've got another low country style home to show you. It was designed by the same architect firm that I've featured before, Frederick and Frederick. The layout is really open and airy, although darker woods are used. I've mentioned this before, but when you live where it's beastly hot nine out of twelve months of the year, those dark rooms become more appealing because they are a respite from the sun and heat. That's something I didn't fully understand until I lived there. My guess... is you want light and sunny when you live where it's cold (i.e. Scandinavian design), and a break from the sun when you feel like you're frying every time it hits your skin. Regardless, I still love light an airy and the hot climate!
|Welcome to the Lowcountry River House.|
|Metal roofs are fantastic...especially when it rains (which it does a lot of on the coast).|
|This is the biggest I could get this shot of the screened in porch from the outside.|
|Oh, to take a nap or read a good book out here in a hammock!|
|How great is this plank flooring? I really like this entry area.|
|This maybe just a little too rustic for me. I could definitely do without the bear head and hide on my floor! But, that tub!|
|The floor plan is pretty much all one open space for the main living areas. |
Not what you'd expect when you walked into such an old looking home.
|Although it's a little dark, the open rafters, double-sided fireplace and dormer/skylights create such an openness.|
|Check out the galvanized deep sink! That MIGHT just hold an afternoon worth of dirty dishes around here.|
There's a little eye candy for you. Tomorrow you'll get to see my newest finished piece, I promise!
