Historical Concepts - Day Two









A slice of heaven, right there in Palmetto Bluff!! Today we're finishing our tour of this incredible South Carolina home designed by Historical Concepts, an architecture firm specializing in traditional and vernacular design. I can't decide what I'd prefer... the breezy porch with the swinging bed and fireplace, or the attic bunkroom with the cozy curtained bed niche! All just so darn delightful! If missed out on yesterday's post, check it out here because there are more photos by Richard Leo Johnson/Atlantic Archives of the home waiting for you!


If you're like me and just cannot get enough of beautiful Southern homes, Historical Concepts has a new book out called Coming Home: The Southern Vernacular House. The stunning coffee table book is filled to the brim with breathtaking interiors...the home above even has its own chapter! Read all about the book here!

I think that this house is my very favorite, and you have had some beauties! Can you find out the paint colors used in the rooms? I am sure this would be of interest to many of your blog followers. Thanks for the time and thought you spend to find such great houses.

Unfortunately I don't know the specific colors used, but I was told the designer was using a lot of Benjamin Moore blues from their historical colors palette, specifically Palladian Blue and Wythe Blue!

Wow! I love that the blue is not overpowering. Just a hint of blue here and there. I looks really lovely!

Erin! You are my favorite blog each morning! I love your taste.
May I pick your brain? I have my Grandmother's baby grand piano. It is sun warped and needs a little TLC. If you were in my shoes, would you paint a baby grand and what color would you choose?

Lisa, thank you so much!

Gosh that is such a great question!! Personally I would go for it, but it would have to be THE perfect shade of turquoise. I'm going to ask my FB readers and see what they have to say! I don't have a lot of painting experience, but so many of them do! So look for advice at my FB page!

Erin, I am familiar with Bluffton/Palmetto Bluff. You could spend a full week just posting beautiful Palmetto Bluff homes which use shades of turquoise. Keep 'em coming!
