Will Huff of the design firm Huff-Dewberry was delighted when he received a call from one of his Atlanta clients saying she and her new husband were building a home on Amelia Island. The husband runs his business from home and frequently holds meetings on Amelia Island, and as active philanthropists, the couple also wanted space to hold fundraisers. The esteemed Architecture firm, Spitzmiller & Norris, designed the home to exude a sense of substance and permanence. Furthermore, the light and airy feel transports you from the big city into a heavenly retreat that captures spectacular views of the surrounding marshes and Intracoastal Waterway.
“She wanted the house to reflect a casual, happy, and sophisticated feeling with fine things sprinkled throughout,” Will said of his client to Southern Home magazine. “And she wanted it all in shades of blue.”
The master bedroom was designed in ethereal blues and creams to create the feeling of being in a cloud. And custom latticework was made for the adjacent hallway to give it the feeling of a garden room.
