When you think of LowCountry living you think of simple, casual and elegance. This is exactly describes my friend Nancy’s home. A perfect combination of comfort and style. Don’t forget to check out her beloved cat Scout which you will see hanging in the gardens.
Lowcountry Home tour
My friend Nancy is a talented lady with a zest for life. She loves to paint and enjoys decorating her lovely home with items that she has cherish for years.. Nancy home is beautifully designed Lowcountry home built by Yestermorrow. The home has an air of comfort and elegance. Wide shady porches, the house has large double-hung windows with wooden shutters, screened-in porches, and tall front doors with transoms above, Are all features visible from the outside.
Low Country home Tour Gardens
Nancy is truly focused on her gardening. A passion she has. Her garden features a beautiful water fountain, and many indigenous plants. There is a beautiful covered space you can have lunch or where you can sit and read. Here home was in a book called Outside the Not So Big House by Julie Moir Messery & Sarah Susanka, The cover of the book featured her covered outdoor space.
Nancy’s cat Scout loves hanging in the garden. Nancy says he is her best friend. He is the sweetest cat and I truly enjoyed photographing him.
Inside Nancy’s Lowcountry home you can find spacious rooms filled with architectural detail. There is a West Indies influence of light shades of yellow, green blue and pink in her decorating. As a young girl Nancy spent her summers at her family’s home in the Dominican Republic.
From these influences comes rattan, and wicker furniture which you can find in many of her rooms. While there are modern influences as well such sophistication makes for a beautiful decorated home.
One of my favorite rooms in Nancy house is her den. It has a relaxed vibe. I love how the green and white rug makes everything pop.
When I look at this living room I see so much of the Dominican Republic influence such as the white sofa with dark pieces of furnitures. A bright green chair with tropical artwork hanging over it.
I love how Nancy decorated her guest room with the formality of the four-poster bed with colorful pillows offset by white linen. What a great eye for style Nancy has as she included a fun moroccan hanging pendant. Another favorite of mine.
HOW TO ADD LOWCOUNTRY ELEMENTS IN YOUR HOME
- Add a light comfy sofa like Nancy did in her den. it brightens up the space.
- Bright colored rugs are great against white furniture.
- Hang some coastal art work over your fireplace mantel or on the walls such as in her den.
- An occasional wicker or rattan chair can add some low country charm.
- Large seashell or coral placed in your book shelves or tables.
