Folly Beach Beach House in AD

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Folly Beach, located a stone's throw from Charleston, SC, is a community known for true relaxed beach living.  The vibe of this charming & eclectic hamlet is reflected in its style of houses & the residents who inhabit them.  Different in feel than Kiawah, Seabrook, or Isle of Palms, on Folly, the landscape is left to nature's own devices and the architecture blends a mix of original beach cottages with present day design needs.

AD July 2011 -- Folly Beach | A newly added beach front screen porch 

The July 2011 issue of Architectural Digest features one such home where owners Amelia T. Handegan & John Roven reworked their existing 950 square foot original beach bungalow and added a 2 story 4 bedroom/4 bath extension.  Handegan took to designing the home's interiors, seamlessly blending old & new with continual white walls, inventive floor designs, and the addition of soft cotton fabrics for drapery, floor rugs, bed linens, & upholstery.  I admire Handegan's sense of quiet refinement in each room's design appeal, while ever keeping in mind that this is a beach house, where sandy feet, comfortable gatherings & a good time are always welcome.  Check out the images below and click here to read more from AD.
