I love the ocean in the off-season. The thick veil of sticky humidity is graciously lifted, leaving empty, gray beaches and crisp, salty air for all kinds of cozy enjoyment. It's a time of year when the locals reclaim their coastal territory and get bundled up for oyster roasts, beachside bonfires, and holiday boat parades.
The magic of the coastal off-season is unlike anything else and has been the sole inspiration for our recently launched Amen Domestics Neutral Territory collection. (Which we're so stoked for!!)
But for designers, this wonderful off-season can also be quite busy. Rental property owners and managers often call on us in the fall and winter months to help breath fresh life into properties that sometimes haven't seen a new paint job or furnishings since 1992.
We're working on several vacation parcels and I thought I'd share a little peek at one of the concepts we've put together for one such deserving (and in-need!) space.
I always have so much fun working with these spaces because I know how much enjoyment they bring to so many people. As almost all Charleston locals do, I get such a thrill out of seeing people enjoying the unique and precious culture of our amazing city. And I feel like I get to play a part in that with this work, which is really cool.
To me, this concept showcases the laid-back vibe of our Charleston coast with it's comfy-cool upholstery and rich neutral texture. It feels coastal, but not like your typical mint green and coral dolphin themed ocean-front property (#fixitjesus).
And the best news is...if you like any of the pieces in this concept and are interested in having them in your own home, you can order the pillow, throw blanket and table lamp (items 7, 8, and 9) in our Amen Domestics shop! And if you're drooling over any of the other pieces (like I am), don't be shy! Drop us a line at email@example.com, and we can get you pricing and availability!
A while back, I started this Pinterest board, Beach Bungalow, full of coastal cool inspiration! Check it out and be inspired.
Happy off-season, y'all!
