Kiawah House: Introduction

Welcome to my parents' little house by the beach...

Advance apology: all of these pictures were taken in a hurry while we had a quick minute to look at the house while we were at Kiawah for our vacation this summer. Some are crooked, some have my parents in them, whatever. I was too excited and too busy running around trying to see everything to get super great pictures.

Things to note: most of the furniture stayed {with the exception of a few pieces} and everything on the walls left with the old owners.

 Front steps & door. Sidewalk is getting replaced this week.

 Inside the front door.

Hallway to the right of the front door. Closets on the right side of the hallway, then Bedroom 1, bathroom at the end, Bedroom 2 on the back left, and front left is the laundry room/office area.

Bedroom 1: the bunk bed room or Laurel's room, whichever you prefer.

Just in case there wasn't enough sleeping space in this room, there's a trundle under this bunk bed, too. However... these bunk beds & the trundle left about a month ago.

 Wait. Are the bunk beds in the closet?

Yup. Bunk beds in the closet.

But, there's still a closet within the closet.

 1 of 3 full baths. This one is my favorite! Except for the crazy shower.

 Bedroom 2: otherwise known as my bedroom. It's now painted a pretty, very pale light blue.

Bedroom 2's bathroom from eons ago. You can barely see the bookshelf type thing on the left, but that was the first thing my dad tore out of that bathroom. The second will be the carpet.

 Everything has got to go! I'm sure this bathroom will be my favorite when it's all said and done {I love what my mom has picked out for it!}

 The teeny tiny office.

Laundry room.

 The best area of the house: the living room, dining room, and kitchen areas.

 That table is gone.

The futon on the left, the lamps, and that awesome kitchen table are all gone.

Master bedroom. It has already been repainted & I think the paint color is called "bejeweld"? I'm not sure how to describe it other than very pale blueish/purpleish color.

Master bedroom closet into bathroom.

 Master bath.

 Master bedroom... right off of the living room & the double doors open out onto the deck.

 The pretty kitchen table is now gone, but my parents have already bought a new one from Carolina Imports to replace it. Pictures of the new one to come once the rest of the little dining area is complete.

 I love the kitchen. Stainless steel, subway tile, open, bright, airy.

 Another thing that I love about the house: the little door within a door on the fridge. I use it as much as possible, even when not completely necessary or practical.

& that's the house!

Come back tomorrow to see the deck {not pictured here} and the changes we {my dad} has already made to it.


  1. I'm obsessed! When can I visit? hehe

  2. I'm insanely obsessed with the front door! I'm begging the husband to agree to paint our front door that color one day {when we get a front door}. No luck yet, but I have hope :) The house is so cute! My parents bought a house on Hilton Head and completely re-did it. i can't wait to see what your parents do with this house!

  3. I agree with Taylor Rae, front door = amazingness. The whole house looks sweet! Happy to be a new follower!


  4. Such a gorgeous home! I actually work on Kiawah! :)
