For the interiors, Matthew wanted to create a look appropriate for a remote Southern getaway, but nothing too sleepy. He started with a traditional foundation composed of classic American and English wood antiques, mellowed Oriental rugs, grids of framed prints, and Colonial portraits crowned with museum-style brass picture lamps.


The eclectic composition includes a Neoclassic sofa, overlapping Oriental rugs, inexpensive rattan poufs, and a huge Chinese bowl from Charleston's John Pope Antiques.
