Southern Living 2014 Idea House Tour, It’s a Wrap

So on the the final part of the Southern Living House Tour . . .

~ ~ we will move on to the bedrooms and other details of the home. . .

~ ~ ~ ~ and the beauty of Palmetto Bluff.

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

When you enter the Master Suite . . . you immediately feel a sense of calm.

The metal canopy bed is by Ballard Designs.

Duvet from Dillards . . . drapery fabric is Suzanne Kasler Signature Linen Blanc by Ballard.

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

Love this sitting area in the room . . . There are doors in the room that lead out to the patio.

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

Love the starburst mirror over the bed . . there was no resource listing for it . . .

~ ~ however, it can very well be from Ballards.

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

Beautiful free standing tub by Kohler.

~ ~ Note to self: in your next house, all tubs will be free standing . . . no more garden tubs!

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

The vanity configuration was of the separate his and hers vanity . . .

~ ~ oh, that’s me in the mirror!

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

These sliding “barn doors” lend to no interference of doors swinging either into the closet or into the hall. .

~ ~ and they look great!

When you come up the stairs to the other bedrooms . . .

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

There is a great sitting area that overlooks the rooms below . .

~ ~ where this is your view . . . I love those double chandys!!! (Percival Chandeliers by Circa Lighting)

Now we enter one of the guest rooms . . .

You get that same serene and calm feeling when you enter the room . . .

However, I have to tell you what I loved best . . .

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

The gorgeous view!!!

I was rearranging the furniture in my head again…trying to envision a way to sit and enjoy that view!

Even the guest bathroom had a beautiful view!

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

I did love the beautiful subway tile they used throughout the house . . .

~ ~ and made note of the beautiful floor tile for the “future”…

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

I can tell you now that this is my favorite bedroom in the house…

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

I love the coziness of the sofa in the alcove . . . however, I wondered how the desk would look there…

When at a desk, I like a view . . .

Girls Bathroom . . . vanity

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

On one end of the bathroom is the closet . . . hmmm, we were not too crazy about this closet.

At first we thought it was the linen closet, but it was actually the clothes closet for the girl’s bedroom.

Enter the boys’ room . .

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

I love that they painted the window frames black…such a great statement to the room.

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

Love the chair and note the great interior door…the woodwork in this house was really nice…

~ ~ we were admiring lots of planked walls in the house. It was hard taking a pic of them.

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

The bathroom . . . that is very similar to the girls’ bathroom.

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

And so is the closet . . as I stated before . . . not my favorite.

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

Between the Boys’ and Girls’ Room is a small room designated “The Bunk Room”

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

Love this cozy room for “extra guests” or a place where you can retreat and read. . .

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

~ ~ and enjoy another great view.

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

At the end of each bunk is a convenient table.

Southern Living 2014 Idea House

This is the mudroom/powder room area that is accessed through a breezeway from the garage . .

~ ~ or the side of the house. You can see a peek of the wallpaper in the powder room.

Soon after I clicked a picture, someone popped into the powder room…so I did not get a pic inside.

On the other side of the “mudroom” is a great work table.

We left the house and headed to the Town Square of Palmetto Bluff to have lunch.

Palmetto Bluff Town Square

The town is so very quaint . . .

After lunch we took a walk on the brick pavered sidewalks under the canopy of beautiful moss covered oak trees.

These are the ruins that are in the center of the town square . . .

There was a beautiful little church in the town . . .

It was just as beautiful inside . .

So as we leave this beautiful Low Country town of Palmetto Bluff . . .

~ ~ I snap a picture from the car of those wonderful moss covered oaks and the gas lit lanterns . . .

Palmetto Bluff

I say buh-bye to that house of my dreams . . . asking hubby, can you build me one just like it?

He smiled . . . and we will leave it at that!…

Hope you enjoyed touring the Southern Living Idea 2014 Home in Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina as much as I did!

If you missed the first two Tours . . .

~ ~ you can see Part One here . . . and Part Two here . .

Have a most wonderful weekend!!!

  1. Thanks for sharing the rest of the house it is so fun to peak inside. I have to say I just love the charming church and the inside is adorable. I have a thing for small churches. I was married in a small country church and my husband proposed to me at the small historic church on cumberland island. Just love it!

  5. 2 words: swivel rockers:):) I envision putting 2. facing each other at that window to see the view! And, yes, put the desk in the other room at that window:):) This is a beautiful house, thanks so much for taking us along. Have a beautiful weekend, my friend.

    Thanks for the tour Shirley, I especially loved the town scenery and that beautiful little church. I continue to get great ideas from your blog for the new house we’re building. Can’t wait until it’s complete to decorate with all the wonderful things I’ve found over many years of collecting. Maybe you make a field trip out this way to check it out and give me some ideas. Anyway, thanks again for the wonderful blog treats.

  8. Shirley, SL should have let you do the write up for their magazine, I swear! Great job capturing all the details. I remember reading they called that upper passage “the bridge”. I love the bedrooms, but I totally agree with you and would help you rearrange that furniture to take in the views, esp that desk! (What were they thinking?!). The wallpaper in the powder room, I think I read, was inspired by the designer’s grandmother’s flowers in her garden. I didn’t care for it too much. Love that chair in the boys’ BR also (and the mud room).

    Thanks for the tour, and have a great weekend!

  9. I have so enjoyed the tour, just beautiful! Thanks so much for taking us along…

    I love the little church and the interior also. I’ve never been to Palmetto Bluffs and your posting has encouraged me to go later in the year.

  11. It’s always interesting to see decorating styles, and the Southern Living showcase homes are always tasteful and reflect current trends in a specific style.

  12. Shirley, you have a stunning home that I like very much. However, I do like the little town that the home is in with all the beautiful moss growing on the trees and the lovely lake.
    I like the colors that they used in the home and I am with you on the children’s closets. It almost looks like the forgot about it and tried to fix it quickly.
    Have a great weekend.

  13. Gorgeous! Thanks for taking so many pictures and sharing it with us. As close as I live to the Idea House, I will have to get myself over there to take a look one of these days!

  15. Thanks for the tour. since I couldn’t go, this is the next best thing. Loved the house, great pictures Shirley!!

  16. Me, too! Me, too! Me, too!!!!!! I immediately thought that a desk belonged there in that alcove in the bedroom where that sofa was!!! That is so funny!!! It would just seem to make more aesthetic sense. Oh, well…if we lived in that house we could arrange the furniture any way we wanted, starting with that living room and then rushing up the steps to that bedroom! 🙂

    I’m with you on the freestanding tub thing, too! We actually don’t even use our bathtubs. We have 3 of them, and none of them get ANY use whatsoever. We’re shower people. I wish I could just rip at least two of the tubs right out, especially the one in the master suite. It’s a jet tub, but we don’t care. We’d rather have one of those cool rainforest showers!!!! There’s also a jet tub on the lower level, and I’d just like to rip that sucker out and have a small shower and more floor space. (Besides…it’s on the lower level of the house where there are not bedrooms! WHY does it need a tub?!??!)

    Great ideas in this designer house again this year. Thanks for taking us along with you on the tour!

  17. What stands out the most for me in this house is the subtle use of texture. That, and of course, the views! Just stunning! I would never leave!

    As for the freestanding tub, well, you know how I feel. I need a place to put my wine glass ;).

  18. Wonderful tour, Shirley. The house seems filled with understated, casual elegance. I agree with you about those closets – not my favorite thing.

  19. LOVE this part of the tour Shirley! I wish I had a spot for a work table like that and I love those sliding barn doors for the closets!

  20. The detail is amazing… I also love white… It just makes it feel classier..

    thanks for the great tour Shirley. Your comment on tubs “in your future” is it the look you prefer or another reason you would get a free standing tub? I’m just curious…
