Our Beach Villa: Part Two

If you missed it, check out yesterday's post for details and "before" pics of our Hilton Head beach villa.

The villa came furnished, and thankfully, the furniture was in good shape. However, everything was a bit too dark and dated for my taste. I wanted to give the place a more coastal vibe that reflects my taste and, hopefully, appeals to more renters.

I just returned from spending two weeks there. My mom came the first week to help me clean, accessorize and update. My husband and kids came down the next week for Spring Break, and we had a small crew here stripping wallpaper, making repairs and painting.

I was able to quickly snap some photos before we left to drive home. 

Just to refresh your memory, this is what we started with…

And, here it is now...

I will share more details later this week about what we did in each room. (Hint: it involved several trips to Home Goods. Shocking, I know!)

I hope you enjoyed the pics of the lighter, brighter, beach-ier villa! The painters were still working on our last day there, so I don't yet have updated pics of the foyer or the bathrooms. Will share as soon as I do.

If you would like information on renting our villa, please email me at

Have a great day!!

  1. So much better! I'm so glad you rearranged the bunk beds. That was my first thought when you posted the pic of that room. It looks wonderful, a beautiful vacation spot!

    1. Thanks for noticing that, Lynn! Moving those beds was our most strenuous project, but it definitely opened up the room and let the light in the big window. There were a few touch and go moments when I thought my husband might be crushed in the move, but he survived and it was worth it ;)

  2. That looks so much better- brighter and the bedroom with the bunks is more functional now. Love the lighter palette. xo Diana

  3. Where is you Beach Villa?

    1. It is in the Palmetto Dunes plantation, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

  4. It looks so much better- lighter and brighter! Great work:)
