Herlong & Associates DesignsGiven the history of the 1800's carriage house, the Herlong design team will be creating a space that is tranquil and organic, yet retains the feeling of magic long inspired by this dwelling.  This second-floor family space includes a kitchenette and private bath off the diminutive bedroom.  

To enhance the traffic flow and livability of the space, the designers removed the ill-placed closet, thus able to incorporate a charming eating area for up to four people using antique pieces that are both exquisite and comfortable.  With only a single, small window in the main space, natural light is at a minimum.  To counteract this, the design team will take a sensory approach, relying on an abundant use of color and texture.

The palette is dictated by a typically spectacular Lowcountry sunset, infusing shades of purple and orange along with earth tones and soft greens to represent the sand and tidal marshes.  By incorporating a dramatic amount of fabric, mostly silks, the team is able to achieve an unexpected "softness" to the space that more than compensates for the lack of natural light.   The old Charleston brick fireplace is flanked by an antique clock and small writing desk, inviting guests to relax and ponder.  

The rooms' only modern nods are the shrimp-colored leather reading chair and the well-appointed kitchenette, places where a semblance of luxury is a must.  While the transformation of these rooms is dramatic, the resulting aura is one of refinement and utter comfort.
