Transforming a builder-grade space into a haven of personality and soul was our mission. The challenge? Infusing charm without overhauling the recently built home. Through thoughtful cosmetic changes, we added charming elements, personally tailored to our clients, turning a simple space into a serene yet vibrant sanctuary.

During Slate Studios' initial consultation with the McDonald family, it became clear their current home wasn't suitable for their growing family. With a baby on the way, they decided to upgrade to a larger, new construction home just a mile away. Excited for a fresh start, they saw the blank canvas as an opportunity to infuse their Southern charm and personality into the space. With Slate Studios' expertise, they embarked on creating a warm, welcoming sanctuary where new memories would be made and cherished.

The TV wall had no personality until we showed up! A blank wall with builder grade blinds was transformed into the main focal point of the room with custom picture rail trim, linen roman shades with tape trim, and dimmable sconces, this is now a wall worthy of attention. 

McDonald family

The McDonald family was ready to put down roots, with a baby on the way, they wanted this next chapter of their life to have a beautifully designed space to make new family memories in. Our client asked for us create a space that not only resonates with their Southern roots but also provides a tranquil escape for recharging and entertaining.

Lighting for kitchen renovation


The kitchen underwent an instant transformation with the introduction of lanterns. The tiered design carries a historic silhouette, evoking the charm of Charleston, SC. To enhance the luminosity, the interior of the lanterns is meticulously hand-painted in an antique gold color, amplifying the warm glow, casting a serene light.

Southern Sernity &Tranquility


Southern Roots. Drawing inspiration from the client's Charleston heritage, we infused the interiors with elements of Southern hospitality.

Warm and welcoming textures, cozy areas, and spaces designed for entertaining are accented by lantern pendants, slipcovered chairs, and traditional design motifs.

Recognizing the pantry door as a canvas for creativity, we seized the opportunity to infuse a delightful touch of whimsy into the space. A strategic update in hardware, paired with the bold and captivating choice of Sherwin Williams Merlot paint, transformed a functional element into a statement piece.
