Wellborn Cabinet was thrilled to visit the 2017 Southern Living Idea House located on the beautiful Bald Head Island, North Carolina. Wellborn Cabinet, along with many other incredible companies were honored to have played a role in sponsoring this stunning design.
The home was made possible by so many incredibly talented individuals, including builder Jeff Sanderson of Whitney Blair Custom Homes; residential designer Eric Moser of Moser Design Group; and interior designer Lindsey Coral Harper. Ideally situated on the car-free, accessible-only-by-boat barrier island located about 35 miles south of Wilmington, North Carolina. Bald Head Island is a magical little island that proves to be an oasis from the modern-day world full of technology and constant communication. Needless to say, Bald Head Island is a real retreat.
It was beautiful to see the stress level begin to dwindle among all who attended as we began inching closer to the island. The 20+ min ferry ride is a great way to diminish any thoughts and provoke a more care-free mentality.
When first entering the home, the open floor plan of the living room, dining room, and kitchen has the eye wondering and bouncing from object to object. The color palette pulled throughout the home is soft yet accompanied by big, bold colors.
The large kitchen feels inviting and relaxed. Here, cabinets by Wellborn Cabinet fill the space. The perimeter cabinets feature Winslow Maple finished in Wellborn’s Divinity paint. The 4 by 8-foot island features Winslow Maple painted in a custom color (Sherwin Williams 7521) available through Wellborn Cabinet’s ColorInspire program. Above the island, a large opening in the ceiling helps open-up the room while providing a terrific vantage point from those passing by above.
The Butler’s Pantry provides a vibrant pop of color utilizing Wellborn Cabinetry featured in Winslow Maple painted with Vogue Green (ColorInspire, Sherwin Williams 0065). The tortoiseshell-style tile completes this one-of-a-kind room!
The first room off the kitchen is the master bedroom. Significant in design, this master suite is accompanied by a massively stunning walk-in shower. This room features his and her vanities, both of which are Wellborn Cabinet (Henlow Square Maple finished in Welborn’s Porcelain Pewter Paint with a Glaze).
The multiple bedrooms upstairs continue the incredible design style of Harper. The “twin” bedroom features twin beds with the walls covered in ship-lap material. This room has many orange accents which continue into the bathroom. The simple vanity stands underneath a very vibrant green mirror, which uniquely enough matches the green painted floor.
It is time to enter the most talked about room in the home, the “monkey” room, AKA “The Crofter Room.” “Crofter” is a peculiar term that describes the golf cart garages on Bald Head Island homes, which turns out to be an excellent place for a guest suite. The monkeys on the wallpaper seem to be climbing to chase the banana on the vintage banana chandelier hanging in the center of the room.
Oddly enough, the green in the wallpaper paired with the vibrant blue cabinetry by Wellborn Cabinet truly makes for a unique design. The cabinetry is part of the ColorInspire program through Wellborn and features Napa Maple painted in Turkish Tile Painted Finish (Sherwin Williams 7610).
The Crofter bath is situated just off the monkey room and is in fact opposite of its counterpart. This bath features a white vanity, white walls, and white flooring. This all white vanity is fitted in Cortland Maple finished in Welborn’s Porcelain Paint.
Needless to say, the Wellborn Cabinet 2017 Coastal Living Idea Home tour was inspiring, entertaining, and relaxing! Wellborn Cabinet would like to give a special thanks to all who attended and participated in the beautiful trip to Bald Head. We hope the 2017 Coastal Living Home far exceeded all your expectations, as it did ours!
