Artful details abound in Holley Jaakkola's historic Savannah home including a concrete squirrel that most would place in the garden but Jaakkola perches on her marble kitchen sink. Inspired, unexpected details like this give the home its strong sense of style and personality.
The detached garage includes a bay designed for parking a golf cart, which locals in the gated communities on Hilton Head Island use to get around the area. “They don’t really drive their car from house-to-house, they drive their golf cart,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
This media room includes clever details that enhance the entertainment experience. “We installed risers to give it a genuine movie theater feel that are actually lighted on the stair steps,” says designer Tiffany Brooks.
“Use the existing lightbox and replace current ceiling lights with a pendant or chandelier of your choice,” Ana suggests. In the kitchen, she added a pendant that matched the floor lamps and looked great off center.
Designer Tiffany Brooks was inspired by the Gothic architecture of churches found in Texas for HGTV Smart Home 2019. This inspiration permeates the home down to details like the traditional metal pulls on this floating wood vanity that bring to mind church doors.
