Amelia’s Folly

follyStill on a beach kick here in Charleston, so I thought I would introduce you to our other popular beach – Folly Beach. As shown in the pamphlet above, Folly Beach has been a popular destination in South Carolina for years. One of my favorite Charleston-based interior designers, Amelia Handegan, has a house at Folly Beach that was photographed for Architectural Digest, which I thought I would share.

The change in the pattern on the floor is meant to represent where the old house ends and the new house begins – so that the viewer is aware of the passage of time and of the home’s different building campaigns. This is an extremely preservation minded piece of Handegan’s design, and something that I have also done in my home in Charleston to distinguish the new from the old.
