As you guys already know, I love coastal cottages, but as the weather gets colder out there I can’t help but look for interiors that feel a little warmer. For me, nothing looks cozier than neutral interiors with natural stained or gentle washed wood, just like we will see in this rustic cottage.

Located in the marshlands of the South Carolina Low Country , this rustic cottage is a successful response to the challenging parameters of the site. The owners and the architect, Wayne Windham Architect, P.A., decided to save every oak tree on the site and create a space that works with and does not intrude upon its surrounding environment.

By creating a one story structure, the cottage exists below the tree canopy and visually blends with its surroundings. Colors were chosen specifically from flora on the site, and native materials, such as tabby stucco, speak of the local vernacular. The clever form meanders through the trees to feel as close to nature without disturbing it. Extensive use of glazing, along with pinching and extruding the narrow floor plan allows the cottage to “float” above ground.

Here’s what the very talented interior designer, Gregory Vaughn from Kelley Designs Incorporated, had to say about the cottage: “(…) The original owner, was adamant that the home appear as if it had been there for generations. In fact, along with the unusual, rambling layout of the floor plan created by Wayne Windham (in part to save as many trees on the property as possible) the homeowner also wanted to the home to seem like it had been expanded with additions over the years as needed. We affectionately called it the “fish camp” and tried to keep it as casual and rustic as possible. The water wraps around the house on 3 sides at high tide and the views are endless. We wanted to bring as much of the spectacular colors and textures of the Lowcountry inside with the finishes and palette. Thus we used a lot of mossy greens, sandy beiges, and driftwood tones. Travertine, reclaimed wood, and rusty metals were employed thru-out. Furnishing were ordered and specified with slip-covers and slubby fabrics. The custom lighting fixtures by Lowcountry Originals (a division of The Light Post) incorporate local oyster shells on the pendants and some reeds for shades. We had a lot of fun getting creative!”

Take a look and you will see that this cottage is the perfect combination of good taste with timeless design.

Johnny Ruxton, a local faux painter and artist, applied an antiquing glaze over them to add some gray and brown tint to it.

Floor-to-ceiling windows bring plenty of natural light and the outdoors in. The graywash shiplap paneled walls work beautifully with its minimal approach.

The interior designer, Gregory Vaughn, mentioned that he had enjoyed many evenings by the fireplace and he tells me that “the house is just magical, especially at night with candles lit and the doors and windows open”. I can certainly picture that, Gregory!
