When Rich and Ann Rinaldi moved in across the street from longtime Hilton Head residents David and Sally Warren, neither couple could have guessed that they'd soon combine their talents to launch a line of custom artisan tables designed to capture the unique spirit of the Lowcountry.
Archie and Nina Sellew didn’t evacuate from the island when Hurricane Matthew blew through the Lowcountry with 105 miles per hour winds on Oct. 7/8. They didn’t want to and believed they didn’t have to. They felt safe.
After all, it was their island, they owned it, and they had built what they believed to be was a hurricane-proof home in 2000. Matthew was the first real test of its structural strength in the face of nature’s fury.

Northeastern couple makes seamless transition into Palmetto Bluff home
Many, if not most, people move to the Lowcountry to retire from the Northeast or Midwest and alter their lifestyles.
Stuart and Cathy Malone had a somewhat different life plan as they edged toward retirement. They didn’t want to change their lifestyle or slide from their comfort zone of living; they just wanted to downsize and move south to more temperate weather.
Hot pink and other bright colors, kitchen desks, Whirlpool bathtubs, over-the-range microwaves, tiled counters, matching furniture and arched faucets all had their day in many Lowcountry kitchens and bathrooms.
Now it’s white/gray color schemes in the kitchen, transitional style design, wood flooring, outdoor kitchens, coffee stations and wet bars, storage pullouts, floating vanities in the master bathroom and freestanding tubs.
