Posted by Hank Miller on Saturday, May 2nd, 2020 at 12:34pm.

Welcome to the Southern Living Idea House 2019 - Part 2.  In this post we highlight the interiors of this new-old home situated on Crane Island, Florida. This coastal property was built by Riverside Custom Homes, architects were Jim Strickland and Clay Rokicki from Historical Concepts, and design and decor by Heather Chadduck Hillegas.  All photos were taken by Laurey W. Glenn and styled by Liz Strong for Southern Living. We have included as many Sherwin Williams paint colors and designsources as possible - so when something catches your eye for your own home, you will know where to look!

 Living room with wooden beams and blue and white fabrics and paint colors

 Separated by columns, the Southern Living Idea House Living Room is open to the entry - allowing ambient light to filter in. It boasts the same blue and white color palette found on the exterior the home.  Velvet chairs, striped ottomans, and a 110 Lee Industries sofa (fabric Sutton Pebble) provide plenty of space to converse and relax. The antique sofa is from Heather Chadduck Interiors.  Sherwin Williams Paint Colors include SW Classic White Buff (SW 0050) on the walls, trim and bookcases, and SW Pure White on the ceiling.  A picture hanging system made of brass incorporates the coastal theme with prints of cranes.

  Laundry room with bench seating, built in cabinetry with drawers and dog station

Doesn't everyone needs a pot filler for the dog bowl?!  A cushioned bench (obviously for the dog!) with drawers, hooks for towels and hats, and a shelf lined with framed photographs make fantastic use space in the Idea House Mudroom.  The floor ishandpainted with a white border - the windows are by Marvin and the interior moveable part is painted with SW 6202 Grecian Iron

 Laundry room white cabinetry with chalk board inserts

We love the contrast of the black chalkboards against the white cabinetry.

Built in banquet surrounds a game table, blue and white striped wallpaper, botanical artwork

The Southern Living Idea House Gameroom provides a perfect corner for board games. We love the blue and white striped wallpaper (Fabricut 50163W Cambric/Oxford), the banquette by Lee Industries, white game table, rattan chairs and bookcase, and the lovely pretty botanical prints (Ornis Gallery).

 Providing plenty of space for storage, the Pantry features open shelving, baskets, trays, and metal pullout drawers.  The skirt provides a hiding spot for a trash can or additional storage space.  

Dining room with pedestal table, white and blue fabric chairs and lantern chandelier

In the Dining Room,  a checkerboard motif was handpainted on the floors using the same Sherwin Williams paint colors found on the walls and trim. For easy conversation, Heather Chadduck Designs chose a round pedestal table with contrasting white chairs upholstered with a fresh blue and white fabric. In the evening, a large antique lantern lights the room.

Nothing but blue skies in this Southern Living Idea House Bedroom  - the blue ceiling was painted Sherwin Williams Seasalt SW 6204.  Reminiscent of older homes, the baseboards are also painted a Williamsburg blue.

Built in bunks separated by curtains, wallpapered ceiling

Heather Chadduck Designs cleverly uses every inch of space in the Bunk Bedroom. Four built-in bunk beds each have their private space with lighting, Heather Chadduck's beaded pillows and neutral-toned bedding from Southern Living.  Shiplap walls match the sides of the beds and Schumacher wallpaper and fabric are incorporated on the ceiling and curtains. Does it look like a bit of mercury glass on that chandelier?

The Southern Living Idea House boasts a fresh look with classic touches like gray, blue and white penny round tile flooring.
