A beach house is always going to attract visitors, and this one has seen its fair share, having been in one family for two generations. So, when it came time to update the four-bedroom, oceanfront home, the owners were keen to make the guest rooms as memorable and special as the rest of the house. They worked with interior designer Julie Schettig of CHD Interiors in Mount Pleasant to achieve this goal. “Because the home is so meaningful, it was important to renovate and update this space with those memories in mind,” says Schettig.
The main direction for this guest room was to make it one where visitors will feel “at home and on vacation” at the same time. Schettig first established a more sophisticated color scheme, featuring Sherwin-Williams “Samovar Silver,” and added seating as well as storage with the two nightstands from Bliss Studio. Existing art was grouped on a side wall for nostalgia, while updated elements, such as the abstract artwork above the bed and new lamps, complement the custom bedding from Fabricut, Century, and Krave.
