A Happy Hilton Head Villa

Hilton Head villa - ficks reed dining set
Ficks Reed Dining Set, c. 1980

My family has been visiting Hilton Head since 1979, the year I was born. Yep, that makes me 29. Our villa was recently redecorated and I wanted to share because it is so happy and pretty!

The Ficks Reed dining set is gorgeous, right? This has been the spot for countless breakfasts, lunches, dinners, game nights… I’ve even finished and submitted important proposals for work perched in one of those chairs with a cup of coffee next to my laptop 🙂 The cushions have changed out over the years to give it an updated look, but this table and chairs is solid and will never go out of style. I have a personal obsession with Ficks Reed and rattan, and I can attribute it to this dining room set. And the sisal rug under it is a simple, coastal update! Chairish has a huge selection of Ficks Reed furniture, if you love the style.

The living room so comfortable! The bright coral swivel chairs and sofas make it a comfy spot for conversation and movie watching. The coffee table has been the center of the room for decades (and the two end tables!) but the rest of the furniture is all new. I love the styling of the TV bookshelf. So pretty and colorful! Clearly, the way to style bookshelves is to keep it simple, and add a few dramatic statement pieces rather than clutter up too much with smaller objects or too many books and pictures.

Also: that mirror 😍

Isn’t this such a happy, fun vacation spot? It’s in the best location in Hilton Head – and I admit, I’m biased – but it’s in Shipyard close to the Pope Avenue exit, about a mile from the beach, and an easy bike ride to Hilton Head Ice Cream, Coligny Plaza, and plenty of restaurants. There’s a pool and three tennis courts across the street, and the backyard has pretty lagoon & golf course views.
