A Sea Pines couple combines two homes into one with a massive renovation.

In a move that you don’t see regularly in architecture and rarely done on Hilton Head Island, this home in Sea Pines was previously two homes on two separate lots that were then combined. Group 3 Designs was then hired to reconfigure the layout to make it more functional for living and entertaining and so that the space flowed more naturally. The energetic and vibrant couple wanted a home that matched their personalities. Their love of bright colors and patterns came through in the interior design. Plenty of thought went into making sure the home was great for entertaining, too.

Kitchen After

AFTER: With added recessed lighting, globe chandeliers, green painted cabinets and polished nickel hardware, this kitchen has been refreshed.

Kitchen Before

BEFORE: This kitchen was dark and outdated with these fixtures and cabinets.

Vibrant color

Group 3 Designs chose Habersham furniture pieces for the buffet and the dining room table, which were customized with choice of paint and finish. See how the table top matches the floor to tie everything together so it feels cohesive. The Hickory White dining chairs in a vibrant teal color add pop to the room and coordinate with the other elements like the drapes and the light fixture.

AFTER: A completely redesigned furniture layout added more seating.

A place to gather

The living room is quite large, so careful consideration was given to the design of the room to ensure that it feels cozy. A symmetrical furniture layout and two coffee tables, plus large display cases for books and accessories, make this room feel complete.

AFTER: Recessed lighting and back-lit display cases add light and vibrancy.
BEFORE: This room previously felt dark due to lack of light and outdated furnishings.
