The Lowcountry proves you don’t have to be rich to live in paradise

After attending the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing or spending a week on one of the many award-winning golf courses in the area, many return to their hometowns eager to explore the possibilities of calling the Lowcountry home — or perhaps home away from home. The region offers a wide variety of lifestyle living, from traditional neighborhoods and historic homes to beach-oriented communities or private gated plantations, each offering unique features and amenities such as country clubs, marinas, beach access, walking and bike paths, special interest clubs, socials and other events.

Court Atkins Group’s 501 South Studio team creates an inviting backdrop for the Artist Cottage at Palmetto Bluff

The new Artist in Residence program is a collaboration between Palmetto Bluff and Garden & Gun magazine that celebrates the arts, fosters creativity and offers a hands-on education. As part of the program, notable artists are invited to stay in the Artist Cottage in Palmetto Bluff’s newly constructed Moreland Village. Court Atkins Group’s 501 South Studio team was chosen to steer the interior design for the Artist Cottage, a project they considered a privilege.

Kentucky woman turns tiny treehouse-style home into sophisticated space

So what does a woman who was a born and raised in Kentucky and who’s been modeling internationally since she was 16 do when she wants a getaway beach home on Hilton Head Island? She buys a one-bedroom, 520-square-foot octagonal-shaped treehouse-style home built in 1976 in Sea Pines, naturally.

And then she hires Sharon Cleland at J. Banks Design Group to turn an interior mess into a “little jewel that turned out like a dream,” said Kelly Movshina, who moved from France to Aiken, where she now lives with her pilot husband and young daughter.

Engel & Völkers welcomes Terri Rupp and Bill Rupp to their growing team. The Rupp Team are leaders in the marketplace that have particularly exceptional skills in serving a premium clientele.

Far from unfortunate, everything’s looking up on Hilton Head Island. Except for home prices. It’s time that changed.

You don’t need to look too far to see that amazing things are going on around Hilton Head Island. Everywhere you turn, a spirit of “out with the old and in with the new” is sweeping the dust off the rock, polishing it to a glorious luster.

Hampton Lake home offers elegant style without the formal feel

When interior designer Kelly Caron goes to work at her studio in the Calhoun Street Promenade in Old Town Bluffton, she is surrounded by her work — literally. Her office reflects her creative sensibilities, full of warm tones and Lowcountry charm. Picture 200-year-old reclaimed barn wood flooring, shiplap wood board on the walls, soft colors and lanterns.

As the weather begins to turn warmer, the last thing many homeowners want to think about is prepping the lawn, garden and outdoor living spaces for the spring and summer months. Ever since Hurricane Matthew blew into town in October, we’ve been cleaning up our properties and trying to restore some order to unwelcome disorder.

After 31 consecutive years, the Lowcountry Home & Garden Show must be doing something right, thanks to its sponsor, the Hilton Head Area Home Builders Association (HHAHBA).
