Taking Some Down Time at The Bluff

After running around crazy last week and dealing with two cancelled flights and 7 hour delays, I had hit my limit. Luckily, I had the chance to take a day and a half to relax and unwind at Palmetto Bluff. The Auberge Resort isn't very unlike Charleston, but it is breathtaking and the staff makes you feel at home. There are just so many cool things about Palmetto Bluff. I won't go into all of them here, but I did snap just a few pictures.

First, let's just take a deep breath and sigh at the resort's beautiful backdrop.

weddings at palmetto bluff chapel
Ok, back to design mode. This church is too friggin cute to describe. The floor to ceiling windows on the sides open and have pocket screens to pull out to keep the bugs away. Check out the lighting!
built in home closet with mirrors and drawers
Our cottage was huge and I just loved this closet set-up.

We do need to talk a little art here...bedroom marsh paintings.

Painting in living room. I loved their use of color to contrast the neutral furnishings.

landscaping in the South
The walkway out of the spa. Perfect symmetrical lines.

golf cart that looks like a classic car
This is a GOLF CART!!! Could you just die for one of these? They took this one to their tennis game...I mean, how utterly fabulous would you look with your racquet cruising around the neighborhood in this!
palmetto bluff spa
As we know, abstract art is everywhere. These were in the spa to bring in some color.
