Twinkly fairy lights fill the fireplace for a quirky touch in this neutral living room whose cool, modern feel comes courtesy of a large painting. Most homes in Savannah feature original artwork, a distinct advantage of living in a town where the Savannah College of Art and Design churns out a constant stream of talented artists.
With yards of garland and fairy lights, the foyer of this Atlanta home becomes a visual treat at Christmastime. Cream-colored ornaments and ribbons complete the display and echo the neutral tones in the stone flooring.
This cozy courtyard combines fairy tale charm with first-class function. Says the design team, "every detail is finely crafted and proportionally scaled to welcome a robust party or intimate gathering." An outdoor kitchen features a grill, sink and refrigerator, as well as cabinetry for storage and ample countertop space for prep work. Multiple seating areas create cozy gathering spots throughout the courtyard, while lights strung above add festive ambiance.
There is very little this Atlanta doesn't offer in terms of outdoor activities including this hot tub and fireplace combination, a luxurious outdoor kitchen, putting green, whimsical fairy tale garden shed and more. "We like to entertain obviously," says homeowner Rod Rusyniak who each year with his partner stages an elaborate holiday party complete with a light show, Mr. and Mrs. Klaus, ice sculptures and, of course, elves.
