Cookie has always been a fan of Habersham and their custom-designed, handcrafted furniture. “I was absolutely delighted when I learned that Habersham is now creating extraordinary kitchen and bath cabinetry,” said Cookie. “It’s a natural extension for them because their design sense just organically lends itself to the whole home.”
Rich looks and European-styled artistry are the heart and soul of Habersham’s philosophy. Old world charm and absolute function make Habersham the obvious choice for homeowners like Mike and Cookie. Building their dream home on the intracoastal waterways of Hampstead, North Carolina gave Cookie another chance to show what a Habersham fan she truly is.
Mike and Cookie have always loved the water, too. The couple moved to Wilmington, North Carolina more than 23 years ago. In 2007, they found the perfect lot to build their dream home. To help make her dream a reality, Cookie engaged the services of Nancy Scott, founder/owner of one of North Carolina’s leading interior design firms, Master’s Design, Inc. Scott, who has worked with Habersham line for many years, is now in the process of assisting Cookie in choosing a variety of select pieces for some of the most important rooms in the home, in order to bring the project to completion.
Cookie, an avid collector of sea shells, wanted to reflect this coastal spirit in her home. “It was wonderful to blend Habersham’s hand-finished furnishings and cabinetry with so many of our antiques. Habersham’s soft palette and remarkable custom-designs just went hand-in-glove. Perfect.”
Offering a unique, sophisticated, and relaxed coastal style, this Habersham kitchen is as fabulous in European flare as it is functional. “It all works seamlessly with the appliances we chose,” says Cookie. “It’s ideal for entertaining family and friends, and everyone loves the easy elegance of this place we call home.”
Mike, a retired naval officer, also had Habersham create his own Summer Kitchen, complete with a working bar imported from Ireland, game room and full kitchen. Mike laughs, “His and Hers Habersham. It just doesn’t get much better than this.”
