Summer Sizzle in Fritz Porter's Atelier has been one whirlwind of a summer.  While we are getting our new Charleston design office and Belle&Burl settled in to their new spaces we decided to add a little more excitement to our summer!

Partnering with Roderick Coles of The Curious Orange Store we tackled one of the design industry's hottest new destinations Fritz Porter's Atelier space.  Take a look at our labor or love and check some fun photos from our launch party.  A huge thank you to Kate Thornton for her beautiful images.


In love with the way our custom Donghia shades look on the killer midcentury lucite lamps....

Concrete studies by Roderick Coles are the perfect quad for any wall....

Our Gallery Wall installation is calm, cool and collected....

My favorite pair of lamps EVER.... Italian and midcentury - the perfect combination.

Abby Kasonik's gorgeous painting flanked by Juan Lamarca's  incredible photography takes my breath away...

Thank you to Harvest Catering for the perfect summer drinks and delectable hors d'oeuvres.

Belle&Burl's Hampstead table in Black Walnut is a must see!

One of the best things I have ever tasted...Harvest Catering's Scallop Ceviche and Watermelon Gazpacho..

Loved seeing the amazing crew from Fine Rugs of Charleston and Terry Stephenson of Juxtaposition Home & Garden

More lovelies from Harvest Catering .....

Tune in this weekend to get more details on all of our Fritz Porter Inventory - why I love them and where to use them....

Dwell Construction

On tomorrow's episode of Fix it and Finish it  Clinton Beck and his crew from Dwell Studio take a ghastly garage and turn it into a super cool boys hangout space!



Clinton and his team took a space that was basically being used as a storage unit and turned it into a the perfect hang out space with a Low Country feel.

We took out all of the existing walls and and replaced them with Hardiplank.  Clinton used a batten and board pattern to give the space a Low Country look....and the end result is PERFECTION!

Here a few shots from some of Dwell Construction's beautiful projects in the Charleston, SC area!

Thank you Dwell Construction for your time and talent!


Charleston Heart Pine

One of the elements of our "Pretty in Pictures" Fix it and Finish it Episode, that made a huge impact on the space, was the flooring by Charleston Heart Pine.  The Heart Pine makes the space now feel warm and inviting.  By eliminating the cement the space now looks like a professional office and not a make-shift room in a garage.




It was very important to the home owner to use local products, so we loved the fact that all of the wood flooring used was from trees grown in South Carolina.   Charleston Heart Pine purchases only the finest old growth long leaf pine available. This timber is cut and logged by  company’s crew, processed into lumber, and marketed from our mill site in Jamestown, South Carolina.  Each board is trimmed by hand to insure the highest possible quality.

Thank you again to Charleston Heat Pine for providing the flooring and to Elliott Brothers  for installing them.
