sunny spaces on Kiawah Island

17 Dec

Kiawah Island is one of those beautiful barrier island resorts near historic Charleston in South Carolina. Best known for its natural beauty, Kiawah is a coastal resort with world-class golf courses, sandy beaches and lovely homes. All in a very tranquil setting. Katie and Jack sent these four images of their living and sun rooms. Both completed recently with the help of Maine Cottage Design Consultant Amy Zonarich. The amount of natural light in these two inviting rooms is truly breathtaking.

“We have had nothing but wonderful comments,
and certainly enjoy having the rooms complete.
Have wonderful holidays.”

– Katie and Jack, Kiawah Island, SC

A special note that the two Owen Chairs shown in the living room in zinnia Tweet Suite were part of the 2010 Charleston Symphony Designer Showhouse. Thank you for giving them a good home – they look wonderful in your living room.

A sunny sunroom with two armchairs in summer Bloom, a rattan Romeo Coffee Table and Island Sound Cabinet. Maine Cottage colors include: hot lime, sprout, porch and wave.

A Zelda Sofa is always a delight. Thanks for sharing Katie and Jack.
