A Bright & Beachy Isle of Palms Home with Contemporary Appeal

When supermom/style maven Hannah Webster designed the interior of her Isle of Palms home (That’s right! This busy Mom of two styled the whole thing with husband Aaron and no professional assistance.), she knew she wanted something bright, beachy, contemporary and full of character…

We really wanted a clean, coastal feel… so we went with a lot of white and explored subtle ways to add color and character.

Neutral colors, stainless appliances and brushed nickel hardware are used throughout the interior to create a modern feel. The home has everything you’d expect in a new construction, but the shiplap walls, industrial fixtures and unique finishes add some unexpected interest.

And as you can see, Hannah’s careful attention to finishes didn’t end with appliances, fixtures, doorknobs and cabinet pulls. The Websters were seeking some serious countertop eye candy for their kitchen, wet bar and bathrooms, and no ordinary surface would do…

We considered quartz but ultimately chose recycled glass countertops from GlassEco because it offered a more unique look and satisfied our desire to be eco-friendly. I was able to customize the look... We went with white base colors [like Eider White] and added oyster shells to create a coastal feel. We used shades of blue and green glass to balance the white cabinetry in one of our bathrooms and in the wet bar.

Quartz is an engineered stone, and it is rapidly gaining popularity among homeowners seeking a stylish alternative to granite. But which is better… quartz or recycled glass? We’re pretty partial to the sustainable and customizable nature of recycled glass surfaces, but preference is ultimately a matter of personal taste. Hannah’s countertops were installed in 2016, and she has yet to feel any buyer’s remorse. Two years in, it sounds like she’s still in love… 

We have been very pleased with [our GlassEco countertops]. I appreciate that they are handmade and contain natural variations… I think [these variations] are what make the countertops so special. They have unique character that can’t be reproduced.
