For their 2017 Idea House, Southern Living enlisted architect Eric Moser of Moser Design Group, designer Lindsey Coral Harper of LCH Interiors, and builder Jeff Sanderson of Whitney Blair Custom Homes to create a breezy getaway on Bald Head Island, North Carolina. The barrier island is a true retreat, accessible only by ferry and revered for its picturesque sand dunes and marshes. Tour a few of our favorite nature-inspired interiors and shop the lighting looks selected by the Idea House team!

Warm neutral tones and lush greenery fill the living room. For a touch of glamour, Harper added golden accents throughout the space, including a pair of Morris Medium Lanterns by Suzanne Kasler.

As a nod to Bald Head Island’s recognition as a sea turtle safehaven, Harper accessorized the bold walls of the powder room with resin tortoise shells. The Anette Library Light by Ralph Lauren Home lights the bamboo mirror and black granite vanity.

The spacious kitchen features a pair of Hicks Large Pendants by Thomas O’Brien over an 8-foot wide, sand-colored island. Harper brought the outdoors in with botanical prints on the surrounding walls.

A wet bar with a wine fridge and capacious storage make the butler’s pantry a fun and highly functional space. A Morris Flush Mount by Suzanne Kasler was the perfect lighting solution for the uniquely-shaped and compact room.

The luxurious master bathroom is outfitted in soothing blue tones, complete with charming, patterned-tile floors. Polished nickel hardware and the Graydon Double Bath Light by Thomas O’Brien bring even more brightness to the light-filled bath.

Plan your visit to the 2017 Southern Living Idea House, open for tours through October 29th, 2017.

The Bluewater team created an open living and dining space in this Westport, CT home, ideal for enjoying its panoramic views of the Long Island Sound. The Camille Small Chandelier by Suzanne Kasler is a casual yet elegant touch over the glass dining table.

Bluewater selected the Patrick Large Pendants by Thomas O’Brien to light one of two islands in this spacious kitchen, which won the 2016 HOBI Award for Best Residential Remodeled Kitchen & Lower Level.

The expert craftsmanship of a Bluewater home is evident in the details. A bow window and fireplace lined with herringbone stone grace the living room of this Nantucket Shingle style home. A pair of Primitive Sconces by Clodagh add modern flair to the mantel.

Interior designer Michelle Hogue of hogueID completed this Bluewater home with luxurious yet livable furnishings. The Windsor Large Hanging Shade by Ralph Lauren takes center stage in this airy master bedroom.

From the day Steven Kendrick founded Structures Building Company in 1999, his mission was clear: simplify the complex process of custom home building and remodeling for his clients. It wasn’t long before Structures developed a reputation for crafting some of the most beautiful and energy-efficient homes in the Charleston area. Our showroom has had the pleasure of working with Steven and his team to bring their clients’ visions to life, one light at a time. Get inspired by a few of our favorite homes by Structures Building Company and shop their hand-selected lighting looks! Photography by Holger Obenaus.

Architectural details can have a huge impact on a home’s design. Instead of keeping an  architect on staff, Structures works closely with many of the top firms in the Charleston area. With their help, clients can choose the architect whose individual style and design philosophy most closely matches their own.

Structures’ expertise is building on the coastal landscapes of Charleston, Daniel Island, Mt. Pleasant, I’On Village, Kiawah Island and surrounding areas.

The design/build team works with local vendors and suppliers to source the highest quality materials and finishes for every budget. Clients enjoy this simplified approach to selecting fixtures, appliances, color palettes and much more.
