This rustic hunting retreat in South Carolina is situated on private property overlooking a small lake with seasonal waterfowl and wild game roaming nearby. In keeping with the architect’s inspiration to make the building seem like an 18th century dogtrot-inspired lodge, we created interiors that would rival the thrill of the hunt. We infused aspects of the retreat with a masculine but moody flair, with details like an antique French rifle rack transformed into a vanity, a shotgun shell trim on the zinc-topped kitchen island, and reclaimed river-recovered sinker cypress throughout. Elegant touches offset the feeling of a purely masculine space. Eleven custom bunk beds upstairs accommodate extended family and visiting friends, while the large recreation area offers a playful space for billiards or cards after a long day of hunting. Outdoors, everyone can kick back on the porch by the fire and swap the day’s stories.
We always try to design spaces that
respect the architecture and the setting.
We are always inspired by the unique and beautiful characteristics in life whether it be in design, architecture, nature, or people. Interior design has allowed us to join these innate admirations with a life-long practice.
