Southern Living Idea House

Southern Living Magazine, Bald Head Island Limited, LLC, and Whitney Blair Custom Homes are excited to announce that Cape Fear Station on Bald Head Island will be the location of the 2017 Southern Living Idea House.

The home, which is designed to provide creative ideas and inspiration for prospective and current homeowners, will open for public tours beginning in June 2017 and will be featured in the August issue of Southern Living. The Idea House will remain open throughout the summer and on select weekends in the fall, with a portion of all house tour ticket sales benefitting the nonprofit Old Baldy Foundation.

Along with developer Bald Head Island Limited and builder Whitney Blair Custom Homes, the talented design partners chosen by Southern Living for the project include residential designer Eric Moser of Moser Design Group in Beaufort, S.C., and interior designer Lindsey Coral Harper, who is originally from Cartersville, Ga., and whose studio is based in New York City.

Idea House feature story appears in Southern Living magazine

“Every year we create an idyllic house that inspires Southern Living readers with design and decorating ideas they can steal for themselves,” said Southern Living Editor-in-Chief Sid Evans. “Using the South’s best architects, builders, designers and landscapers, we reimagine the ultimate Southern home and bring it to life in the magazine, on, and on our social platforms. No franchise is more eagerly anticipated by our audience than the Southern Living Idea House.

Located on a wooded homesite bordering The Common in Cape Fear Station, the Idea House is just a short walk from the island’s distinctive Southern Living Inspired Community, which offers homes for sale through Bald Head Island Limited Real Estate Sales.
