Every year, Southern Living pulls together a talented team of designers to build a home from the ground up that exemplifies southern style. The stage was set with the location of the 2014 Idea House: Palmetto Bluff, smack dab in the middle of Carolina Lowcountry. This year’s dream team, Interior Designer Suzanne Kasler and Architect Ken Pursley, was up to the task. Together, they created a lighter, fresher approach to living. The storybook vacation home, surrounded by pine trees and nestled beside a lake, is complete with a back porch that offers unrivaled views of the sunrise. We got together with Suzanne to talk about the design and what inspired her.

We asked Susanna to share some of her favorite guidelines (rules being one of her least favorite words!) for incorporating color into your home.
