Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


Have you ever thought of living in a place where you don’t see neighbors, where there’s no honking and sirens awaking you during the night, a place where all you see is nature and the noises you hear are birds singing or soft music playing on your radio? Have you ever thought of living in a secluded area? For many of us, that would only work in our dreams, but what if your had the opportunity to live in a house like this one? Wouldn’t that be the ideal kind of life? Wouldn’t you call it “peace”? The more I see this home, the more I want to be there.

This home is on a private 11.7 acre peninsula in Kiawah Island, with views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Intracoastal Waterway and the beautiful Kiawah River. It was designed by Shope Reno Wharton of Norwalk and the interiors by Jackye Lanham of Jacquelynne P. Lanham Designs in Atlanta. This home offers so much in its 15,000 sq.ft. 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, walnut floors, wood moldings made of mahogany and reclaimed oak, all elegantly done with gorgeous fabrics of washed linen and soft palettes.

This home is truly one to dream about…


Aerial View

Nobody around… just trees and those you would invite.


Gorgeous in every detail and material.

Dining Room

Classic and elegant.


This is a timeless kitchen and I would never get tired of this space.


Yet another great place in this home. I simply love sunrooms and this one is full of charm.

Family Room

Comfortable as it should be.


You fall in love with this home for its uniqueness and timeless materials.

Master Bedroom

I love the architectural details on the ceiling, the color is perfect and the furniture is delightful.

The Other Side

One of the most beautiful bedrooms I’ve posted. One of my favorite, for sure.

Master Bathroom

Outrageously chic.


As beautiful as inside.

Family Time

How wonderful would it be to spend your summers here, huh?


Imagine having a BBQ party here. Have I told you my husband prepares the best cheeseburger ever? Wow, I’m hungry now! 🙂


A perfect home with the perfect backyard.


Only you and your dreams.

Isn’t it an amazing home? I simply love finding places that makes me wish I was there. Too bad I’d have to have $29.0000.000 to own it! Yes, sorry… that one broke my heart also! 🙂

Soon, I’ll be going to my doctor to hear my baby’s heart for the first time. I’m so excited and my kids and husband are coming with me. Actually, to be fair, we are all super excited! It’s so wonderful to see my family growing, especially because I moved to this country by myself and had no family here. Now, we’ll be the 5 of us. I feel blessed, truly blessed. Tomorrow I’ll let you know about the doctor’s appointment, ok? 🙂

Have a wonderful day, my dear friends.

    What a treat for you children to go with you and maybe hear the baby’s heartbeat, too.
    I love the bedroom as you do. I love everything about this home but the price. I live in this home only in my dreams.

    Luciane, a casa é fantástica, o lugar é mágico.
    O quarto, a pérgula, o entorno, aquela sala com tapetes listrados, tudo super aconchegante, como deve ser.
    Quanto ao bebê, ouvir pela primeira vez o coração batendo será um daqueles momentos preciosos para guardar no seu cofre de memórias.

  6. Kate @ Travelmoon said,

    Such an elaborate home and location! I don’t know if I could handle all that isolation, but it is beautiful!

  7. The enchanted home said,

    Hey Luciane….yes love this house, actually featured it on my Sunday showhouse and am in love with it, isnt’ the woodworking incredible? It makes it so warm and cozy despite its big and grand size but at 29 million thats quite a hefty price tag!! How exciting that you are going to get your first sonogram, a family of 5 is wonderful…we have 3 kids and I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world!! Enjoy and good luck with everything..hope you are feeling well!

    Hello pretty Lady!
    Now we’re talking 🙂 This is a stunning home compared to yesterday’s! I am totally in love with the kitchen… and I don’t even like to cook that much – my awesome hubby is the real chef in our family! And the sunroom is a room I could have so much fun with – love it’s curved architecture. Awesome, awesome, awesome 🙂 But I think my favorite of all is the Master Bath – I would own that tub in a heartbeat! Speaking of heartbeat, I can’t wait for your post tomorrow after today’s visit to hear Baby’s heartbeat! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    What an exciting day for you all! It must be so amazing to hear your baby’s heartbeat for the first time!
    This home is incredible. It would be so much fun to cook in that kitchen. The bedroom looks so pretty and relaxing. Love the outdoor space and that sunroom would be the perfect spot to have breakfast and lunch. It’s would be the ultimate place to take tons of friends or family on vacation. I’d have to have lots of people there with me because it might be a little creepy there at night because it is so isolated.

    that kitchen!

    the heartbeat!

    oh let all the love and tenderness in that moment live big, L! it will sustain you later.

    hugs to you and the cheeseburger master.


  11. Kathy said,

    Ok…wow….love coming here for the wow factor!

  12. Sherri @ Inside Out Design said,

    I would be thrilled to have just the bedroom and the kitchen 😉
    SOOOO excited for you to hear the babies heartbeat and how special to include your kids! xoxo

  13. Gloria said,

    Yes, Luciane! Let us know about your doctor’s appt! You are so truly blessed, you will have a family of 5. I think it is so wonderful that you husband PLUS the kids will be going with you tomorrow for the appt. That is so touching! And as far as this house is concerned: I cannot even wrap my head around ever having something like this… that master bedroom and bathroom? Totally, totally amazing!!!!

  17. Cheryl said,

    Beautiful! Picture 6 made me swoon and those outdoor spaces around the pool…. it’s just too good! Thanks for the eye candy. If I ever win big money I’ll know exactly how to spend it.
    Hope your appointment went well. We added to our family this weekend. On Friday I brought home an 8 week old puppy. She is the sweetest thing – hence her name, Sugar. She’s a bichon/poodle/shih tzu. I’ll send you a pic. Take care and I hope you enjoy this gorgeous sunshine today.

  18. Mel @ Georgica Pond said,

    Hi Luciane – thanks for visiting my blog and introducing yourself. Glad you enjoyed it – I’m having such fun. Love your blog, your photos and the broad selection of topics is great. Particularly enjoying the celeb homes, and that Canadian home you just featured – wow. I can never get over the sheer size of houses in the US and Canada. Blows my mind. Looking forward to following you.

  19. Sheila said,

    Hello, Luciane, this home is pure joy! I would love to live in a place like this, since I am a homebody! It wouldn’t bother me a bit! Blessings to you and your growing family. I just started reading your bog and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! Keep writing. Your point of view is so interesting? Thanks!!,
