BENNETT HOFFORD CONSTRUCTION COMPANY Historic Rice Mill Building 17 Lockwood Drive Charleston, SC 29401 843-722-8169, ext. 223 HERLONG & ASSOCIATES 2214 Middle St. Sullivan's Island, SC 843-883-9190 from Vanguard and Lee Industries abound, and fabrics from brands like Manuel Canovas and Schumacher & Co. take their color cues from the island's bold sunsets and crystalline waters. The color story is perhaps best told in the home's fve spacious bedrooms. The bead- board-adorned guest bedroom echoes the blue of the bay, while the tangerine-tinged mas- ter suite boasts custom curtains in an exotic print that references fery evening skies. The stone- clad master bath features an outdoor shower. Hidden behind a thick hedge of native vegeta- tion, it provides privacy and the uncanny sensation of being in a rain forest. Amenities like these are topped only by the entertain- ment options: a basement game room (equipped with Ping-Pong and foosball tables) and an outdoor boccie court where the family passes entire afternoons. All told, it's exactly the property they wanted—a place where they can frequently host family and friends. "Many experts worked to- gether on this home, but we all had one goal in mind," Hofford explains. "Our objective was to create a haven that per- fectly captures the Christophe Harbour lifestyle." For a family seeking a peaceful respite, this Caribbean retreat feels just like home, if not better! 2 Opposite: The master bedroom is a dynamic mix of vibrant persimmon and cool blue. Custom silk bedding bears a panel of Fortuny-inspired silk. Bedside lamps and natural-fber rugs complement dark walnut foors provided by Charleston One Source. Above: The master bath is awash in coral stone, while an accent wall displays rows upon rows of tiny, stacked pebbles. A door leads to the family's favorite indulgence: an outdoor shower.
