Lyght House Cocktails prepared a deep plum signature drink in vintage silver rimmed cups garnished with unexpected dragon fruit for the perfect pop of color. This romantic style wedding palette of rich berry tones, emerald green, antique silver and soft rose at Summerour Studio. Summerour has bold industrial elements of exposed beams and walls of windows to the charming ivy covered Tuscan-like courtyard with it’s rosemary lined walkway.
The second-floor game room is a hub of post-hunt activity, whether relaxing by the fire, engaging in a game of pool or rehashing the day from custom-designed banquettes flanking a game table. Summerour sourced the granite slabs framing the fireplace from a nearby South Carolina quarry. “We wanted to use stone from the site—preferably pieces that had already been quarried—and use them as vestiges,” says the architect.
In this Keith Summerour–designed hunting retreat, designer Melanie Millner of The Design Atelier enlisted Atlanta furniture designer Kevin Scanlon to build the 84-inch round dining table, which seats 10 comfortably. Jason Smith of Smithworks Iron & Design crafted the iron chandelier hanging above.
As with most properties, it’s the location that matters most. The lake “wraps this house so that it feels somewhat situated on a peninsula,” says Summerour, who designed the 45-degree-angle cantilevered porch to engage with its panoramic views. “That’s an unusual feature to be attached to what otherwise would be called a South Carolina vernacular–style cabin architecture,” the architect explains.
