The island in this country kitchen is multi-functional. Its size gives the homeowners more storage with the cabinets underneath.

A breakfast bar with additional seating has been added for the more casual eating affair.
Replace the color and glitz of holiday placecard holders with simple, rustic ones. South Carolina floral designer Karin Jeffcoat created placecard holders by setting individual pinecones in tiny urns. Pinecones can transition your home from the holiday season into winter.

The details in this South Carolina low country kitchen are absolutely perfect. The stainless steel of the cabinet hardware adds to the neutral, serene feeling in the space and nicely compliment the distressed, white cabinets.

Usher in the winter season with texture. Dig through your cabinets or scout thrift shops for patterned vases and bowls, which can be filled with pinecones and bulbs, like these paperwhites selected by Karin Jeffcoat of Cote Designs in South Carolina. Instead of matching pieces, use different components, finishes and designs to give the tabletop an informal, eclectic look.
An over-scaled sofa and cozy club chairs are combined with two sandblasted pine coffee tables in the HGTV Dream Home 2013 great room.

In keeping with beach house interiors, the furnishings were chosen for both beauty and durability.
This beautiful, South Carolina country kitchen has a neutral color palette that makes the space feel light and inviting. The white custom cabinets give the space an elegant farmhouse charm, and the countertop the homeowners chose had to compliment them. A marble countertop was the perfect choice.

After Christmas, those once festively adorned spaces on tables and in bookshelves may feel empty. Warm up the winter months with hints of natural greenery, especially in shades and textures that differ from traditional holiday hues. “Greens are a soft accent for the house,” says Karin Jeffcoat of Cote Designs in South Carolina. Here, she used reindeer moss that is preserved to give it that chartreuse color, but you can also forage items, such as magnolia leaves, from your own yard.
When you swap out holiday plates for items you use in your home throughout the year, look for new ways to display old pieces. Karin Jeffcoat of Cote Designs in South Carolina used vintage milk glass for this tablescape, including setting one bowl on top of a cake plate. The dishes already have a wintery white look. She filled them with paperwhite bulbs that complement the pinecones on the table, knowing they will bring even more warmth to the interiors when they bloom. “I love the texture of the bulb itself,” she adds.
