A Little Low-Country Style in FloridaTropical Patio, Atlanta
When asked to design a beach home with curving architecture and accent features reminiscent of driftwood and old ships in Alys Beach, Fla., Bill Musso, principle at Musso Design Group based in Atlanta, Ga., opted to bring low country style to the Florida panhandle.
Beginning with the exterior, bright splashes of color are emphasized in the courtyard where the palette and split brick floor might transport the visitor to New Orleans. With bougainvillea growing around the archway, the outdoor space called for more intense color and pieces. The courtyard furniture was actually made from recycled milk jugs that had been fashioned into molded resin and woven. The courtyard table was a ceramic planter that was turned upside down and topped with a sheet of glass.
