The blend of textures, captivating centerpieces, doorhandles and knobs, each piece is thoughtfully placed. Warm rugs float just below your feet as lamps and custom lighting provide the ideal glow for entertaining or Thanksgiving dinner. Just beyond the kitchen is an outdoor patio area with teak furniture surrounding the pool, intimate seating around the exterior fireplace with touches of Magnolia House Design on the mantel and side tables.
