A custom metal gate from renowned Savannah blacksmith Ivan Bailey marks the entrance to Holley Jaakkola's garden, which features so many unique Southern plant and tree species it has been documented by Washington D.C.'s Smithsonian Institution.
Guests are greeted the moment they reach the entry stairs with colorful zigzag step tiles that play off of the blue trim of the house. The custom Dutch door, flanked by a pair of oversized wall lanterns, creates the opportunity to open up the top half allowing in the cool ocean breeze.
Warm hardwood floors create a striking contrast against the bright white cabinets in this transitional kitchen. A Moroccan-inspired backsplash makes a bold statement behind the range, while glass tiles create an elegant backsplash throughout the rest of the space.
