At the Helm launched last year at the Lowcountry Home and Garden show! We've been truly grateful for each person that has helped us this first year in business. It's been overwhelming the love and support that we've felt.
This year, the show runs from March 29-31, 2019 located at the Buckwalter Rec Center in Bluffton.
We can't wait to see you there!
I can't believe that it's nearly spring here in the Lowcountry. As pollen season will be coming to an end soon, have you thought about your home and yard maintenance?
At the Helm offers customizable Quarterly Maintenance programs to fit your needs. Our typical spring maintenance package includes:
For your yard needs, don't shop at Lowe's or Home Depot this year. Support local businesses like Taylor's Quality Landscaping located 36 Cecil Reynolds Dr Bluffton, SC 29910. They offer a wide range of products to spruce your yard up this spring. Plus, they even do wine Wednesday from 2pm to close! Who doesn't love wine and shopping?
The majority of customers that we have worked for are asking for their shiplap to be installed and painted white.
White shiplap is an on-trend look. But, it might not be the design feature that you're really searching for. In our house, we did things a bit differently.
Everywhere I go, I have been in love with the natural, lighter look of wood. In the past, I wanted dark with an industrial feel but not lately. I tried to convince Ryan to switch out all our white trim and doors to a natural toned wood. He wasn't in love with that idea.
We came to a compromise by adding shiplap underneath our bar and over our fireplace. Instead of painting it white like most, we decided to white-wash it with a stain, still allowing the natural tone of the wood to come through.
I have no idea how long shiplap is here to stay. The design trend seems to be still alive and strong, especially around Hilton Head. Here on the coast, I think the biggest draw isn't necessarily the farmhouse feel that Joanna Gaines uses it for. It is more for the beach and coastal feeling you get when you see it in a home.
