In order to achieve the low-country look, Dalzell says the design team chose a tabby concrete fireplace that has hand-placed oyster shells, bluegrass cloth, and classic wainscoting for the walls.

The master bathroom is one of the house’s foremost examples of mixed design styles. Its washed, reclaimed oak floors adorn both the ceiling and the floor to tie the room together and give it a rustic look. These contrast with the contemporary freestanding tub and the white, high-gloss floating vanities that feature silver pulls and ambient lighting below the cabinetry.

Hey there, and welcome back to another episode of “Behind the Design.” I’m Katie Dalzell, a designer here, and I want to share with you a home that we just completed in Palmetto Bluff. Let’s go see some of my favorite design features. 

Welcome home, so many beautiful design details in this foyer. We wanted to showcase a mix of the client’s personal style: a traditional low country design and modern touches. This hand-built metal entry door welcomes you in, and the herringbone-pattern brick floors sets the tone for a casual living environment. This is paired with sleek and contemporary walls. Last but not least, the jewelry for the space: the beautiful crystal halo chandelier. 

The living room: layers of design details fill this space. The dark, sleek cabinetry is a fresh twist on the traditional built-ins. Take a close look at the tabby fireplace. Each oyster shell was hand-placed to provide a rustic, low-country feel. To keep it interesting, we designed the hearth to have a more sophisticated appeal by using a drop mitered natural stone. To complete the look , we treated the walls with a bluegrass cloth and classic wainscoting. 

Who wouldn’t want to retreat to this master bathroom every day. So many textures and layers of details to talk about. The washed, reclaimed oak floors are reflected in the wood ceilings. The vanity walls are full of style. See the contemporary high gloss floating vanities with ambient lighting at your feet. 

Another layer of detail is the recessed tile behind each at each vanity wall. And we can’t forget to talk about the master tub area. We mimicked the stack stone on all surrounding walls of the tub. The waterfall spout for the tub filler is the finishing touch for this oasis. 

Thank you again for watching another episode of behind the design. We really hope these videos are inspiring to you and we hope to share many more in the future.
