2010 Brunswick County Parade of Homes Project – Award Winner!

December 2, 2010

Snapshot 2010-12-01 15-46-14We recently finished a new home that was part of the Brunswick County Parade of Homes.  The house was designed for a couple moving to North Carolina from Maryland who wanted something contemporary and warm.  Big Sky Design worked on the project with our clients and  Blue Sky Building Company (Big Sky-Blue Sky…not too confusing!   – a terrific partnership) for 10 months.  It was a great project for all involved and the house had the added honor of winning best in it’s category and best in Interior Design.  It was a team effort and we are all really proud.  Photos courtesy of Campbell Photography and Blue Sky Building Company.

Thanks to all!

November 8, 2010

Thanks to everyone who supported Looking Outward!

We raised over a thousand dollars for The Good Shepherd and The Domestic Violence Shelter & Services.  We had a lot of fun and gave away three custom designer skirts!  Not tree skirts…, but skirts to wear!  Big Sky Couture was a hit and we all had a great time.   Our silent auction items were a success too, a special thanks goes out to Olivers, Beanie & Cecil, The Sterling House, Wilmington Wine, Ki Spa, Beyond the Basics, Sea Dawgs, Crabby Chic and to our fabulous floral designer!!

We had six lines of fabrics and leathers represented at our showcase.  Our representatives were all so helpful, thank you everyone.

We appreciated our clients, friends and collaborators who were so generous in their support.

Happy holidays!

Looking Outward!

September 23, 2010

We are so happy to share a special event with you!  This holiday season we are Looking Outward to our community and creating a unique, fun way to benefit two local non-profit organizations in Wilmington.  One of the favorite resources we have to share are our beautiful fabric lines that we offer for residential and commercial jobs.  Our clients often remark that they too have a passion for textiles, as they are often so unique and beautiful.  Years ago when Big Sky celebrated 1o years in business, the Big Sky team each had a skirt made in a fabric of their choice to celebrate.  This year it is your turn!Looking Outward

We are selling raffle tickets so that three lucky winners can have a “Big Sky Couture” custom holiday skirt made in the designer fabric of their choice!  It is a great way to look forward to the holidays and give to our community.  So buy raffle tickets and help us raise money for the Good Shepherd Center and for Domestic Violence Shelter and Services.  Celebrate the raffle drawing and come November 4th to our office for a special showcase of exquisite fabrics, silent auction and raffle drawing.  Happy Holidays!

Welcome Home Angel Project

August 16, 2010

We had the opportunity to work with Welcome Home Angel recently and want everyone to know about this organization and project.  We would also like to thank everyone who supported and contributed to this project and Welcome Home Angel, helping to give Gage a renovated handicapped bedroom and bathroom!

Thank you to our special friends who made monetary contributions and also our professional friends who gave time and product; Archer Read Woodworking, American Olean, Butlers Electric, Computer Medics, Fast Signs, Fergusons, Sapona Green Building Center, Shaw Carpet, Matkins Glass and Walmart.  Thank you all for supporting with project!

We would also like to give special thanks to Frank Lewis with Commercial Upfit Specialists and his team for completing these renovations.

Gage wanted a Harley Davidson theme to his room and we had a great time putting it together for him.  The local Harley club even gave Gage a special ride in a side car!  Complete with new electronics, Gage’s new room met his needs and will be lots of fun for years to come.  We also got to turn his little brother’s room into a Carolina Panthers haven!

We Wish you a Merry Holiday!

December 14, 2009

The holidays are a time of joy and reflection, rest and reaching out.  This year at Big Sky we are not having a fancy party with our signature Big Sky Martinis (though feel free to come by the office and we will mix one for you!).  Instead we have enjoyed thinking about our BIG party last year and ornament contest.  

We offered our decorated Christmas tree to New Hanover Regional Medical Center again this year.  This year it is adorning the lobby of the Oncology floor.  It was a very special day for us to be able to assemble it again.  It was especially fun for me since my mom came up to help us with the installation, more elves!!

Thanks to all of our friends who spent their time making ornaments last year, this year they are being enjoyed by others on the 10th floor of NHRMC!

Cape Fear National Clubhouse

December 2, 2009

We are pleased to show off the completion of our most recent project, the Cape Fear National Clubhouse at Brunswick Forest.  The completion and final installation always feels bittersweet, especially when we have worked so long an hard on a project. Over two years in design and development, selecting finishes, furnishings, lighting, artwork and accessories, refining ideas, ordering, tweaking, dreaming and dwelling on decisions and details finally come to an end. It’s a great thing, but at the same time it is no longer your “baby” and feel a little bit of a sense of “now what?”  Well, “now” it is a beautiful, fully functioning clubhouse overlooking a spectacular golf course and we wish our clients the greatest success in their new space.  And “now” Big Sky gets to look back on a great project and be thankful for the opportunity to do what we love.

Enjoy the brief images from construction to completion and if you’re in the area please check out the newest addition to Brunswick Forest.

Green Expo!

October 19, 2009

It is finally here, Wilmington’s Green Living Expo!  We are excited to be a part of it.  Look for the Big Sky/KB Stephens booth this Wednesday afternoon.  We will be highlighting our LEED projects and interesting ‘Green’ resources for residential and commercial projects!


We had a great day!  Here we are with Carter Dickinson w/ KB Stephens.  Carter reps a lot of great lighting lines including new LED technologies.  They were a HOT topic!  It was great to be a part of the CFGBA & Greater Wilmington Business Journal Expo and to showcase many of our fabric, wallcovering, tile and  flooring lines that have recycled content and that implement environmentally responsible manufacturing processes.
