Posted by Steven Schrenk on Apr 27, 2018 1:57:16 PM

Nestled in between the beach and the sound is a picturesque barrier island in North Carolina aptly named Figure Eight Island.

In fact, the natural beauty of the colorful seascape was exactly what inspired the designer Lindsey Cheek of Gathered, a full-service interior design firm and shop in Wilmington, North Carolina, when she was called on to design one of the beachfront homes.
