Cindy Munn (Designer)


This project included design of the community clubhouse, model home and selections for the pool area for a multi-family community that is “modern and maritime.” This community resides on an island located just outside Charleston, SC and employs a coastal inspired design. The overall palette is neutral with selections of white sailcloth, soft greens and watery blues. Natural coastal elements are present in the design such as seagrass and reclaimed driftwood ceiling. Mixing in metallic finishes and high-end fabrics and furnishings result in a private club feel. The use of wainscoting and painted beadboard paneling throughout bring a cohesive classic modern architecture feel to the 10,000 square foot clubhouse. The coastal influence was repeated in the model home through the use of natural elements and color choice. However, the subdued tones found in the family amenity spaces where enhanced with more vivid blues and greens, providing energy and wow factor for potential leasing opportunities.

Judges Comments:

“Mediterranean meets morocco meets modern – great!”
