Painted pumpkins

We Fancy Fall

It makes sense that, being in the business of “home sweet home,” we would appreciate the fall season. This is the time when we decorate our front stoops and porches with pumpkins, wreaths of orange and red, and a few dried corn stalks to welcome our guests. This is the time of year when we start baking hearty soups and cuddle up on the couch on a Saturday afternoon to watch our favorite college football team. Now that we’ve escaped the sweltering heat, we can now invite our friends over for a fire in our built-in outdoor living area. This is the season where we invite our entire family and maybe even some close friends to give thanks in our home while we feast on turkey and mashed potatoes. We love fall.

Relaxing Owner's Suite

Staycation With a Relaxing Owner Suite

No matter how crazy life gets, our Eastwood homeowners always have a sanctuary - a retreat from all that life throws at us – an owner’s suite. These master bedroom spaces have plenty of room for a king size bed that will make you feel like royalty and a walk-in closet fit for a queen. They come with en suite bathrooms that parents can mark as kid-free zones (hopefully) and keep the fancy bath salts and bubble baths away from the youngsters. Some even have calming sitting rooms for the end-all-be-all owner suite spaces.

Choosing Countertops

Many options in our kitchen are primarily aesthetic in nature, but our countertop choices can affect the way we work in this space. There are pros and cons to each different countertop surface option. If you are considering changing out your countertops, it really is a decision that is worth researching because this surface must stand up to your lifestyle and needs.

The Charleston Office

Wow Your Work Space

Home offices are at the top of must-have lists when considering a new home. When it comes to decorating these spaces, the practicality and necessity of the space often overpowers the design. Sometimes, the office makeover involves a coat of paint, and nothing more. Yet, in reality, this is the space where the professional magic happens, and it should be as inspiring as possible.

Man Caves: From Baseballs to Brewskies

When we think of design inspired rooms, we most often think of living rooms and bedrooms with color coordinating throw pillows and eye-pleasing wall art. We don’t usually think about baseball bats on the wall, or used tires doubling as a coffee table. Wrenches certainly never play into a design scheme.
