Creekside Cottage-Kiawah Island

Photo Credit: Holger Obenaus

Description: Built as a refuge for a busy California couple, this creek-side cottage was constructed on land populated with ancient live oaks; sited to preserve the oaks and accentuate the creek-side vistas. The owners wanted their Kiawah home to be less formal than their primary residence, ensuring that it would accommodate 3 – 4 vacationing couples. Volumes, room shapes and arrangements provide classical symmetries, while careful detailing with variations in colors, finishes and furnishings provide soothing spaces for relaxation.

The walls above the trim are Silken Pine 2144-50 by Benjamin Moore. The paneling that you see in the photo is the same color as the trim- Moonlight White 2143-60.

Due to a change in office policy, I am happy to share that the walls above the trim are Silken Pine 2144-50 by Benjamin Moore. The paneling that you see in the photo is the same color as the trim- Moonlight White 2143-60.
