Living in Style: Hollie Wood Style

Fri, Nov 2nd 2012 10:01 am by Sam Havens Around Town
Charlston Kitchen by Hollie Wood Style

Seamless decor in a home is something coveted by many. But, for those of us who cherish the dusty history of a stand-out thrifted piece of furniture, or the raw character of a found item, sometimes architecture-heavy design can leave much to be desired. Fortunately, there’s a way to satisfy both needs in a home.

Playing with just the right amount of structure, Hollie styles this home with unique finds and the simplicity and beauty of fresh-picked flowers to transform each room of this dwelling into a perfectly balanced and cohesive space.

The structure in the kitchen of this Georgian home is that of the award-winning Bulthaup company. Known for taking a holitistic approach when design...

The Seabrook Island Real Estate Market

Mon, Sep 24th 2012 11:41 am by Sam Havens Livin the Life on Seabrook Island

Seabrook Island, South Carolina is located just 30 minutes outside of the downtown Charleston area, but just far enough away to enjoy the sound of the ocean. Seabrook offers both residents and visitors a relaxed and laid back atmosphere within walking distance of upscale boutiques, restaurants and of course the beach and natural wildlife areas.
