"With the abundance of surrounding islands (Johns Island, Wadmalaw and down into the Ace Basin), the Lowcountry is equally characterized by marsh homes and country homes. These homes nestle into the surrounding live oak trees and cooperate with their surroundings in color and feel," says Luff. "The interior colors are pulled from nature with soft neutrals, greens, blues and grays. Often there are custom-made case goods from reclaimed wood. These homes tend to focus on the idea of filling the house with family and friends — comfort and a quiet sophistication."
