LISA HILDERBRAND ~ DESIGN IN CHARLESTON


Wishing all of my friends in the northeast well. Stay safe and warm.
~~<>~~
It was love at first sight for me when I saw this home in the February-March issue of Traditional Home.  Designed by interior designer Lisa Hildebrand and homeowner and designer Sarah Hamlin Hastings, the home is absolutely stunning.  And to finish it off, they show me a zebra rug, beautiful art, and some great antiques.

When Sarah's grandmother asked her to take over the reigns and live in the home, she did just that. With her grandmother's blessing, she and Lisa took over and created a masterpiece. This was a great collaboration between designer, architect, and homeowner. Lisa had previously helped decorate Sarah's Connecticut home.  

 Bobby McAlpine and David Baker were the architects on the project, whose goals were to add square footage and open up the spaces.  The outdoor landscaping was designed by Mike Kaiser and is spectacular, created to lure guest outdoors.  

Sarah wanted a home that was a perfect place to bring up children and at the same time entertain.  I believe she succeeded. 

ENJOY!
