Sit a Spell
A covered stoop provides a quiet spot for reading or greeting neighbors. A grass green outdoor chair hints of the vibrant
colors inside. Birdhouses, birdbaths, and plenty of flowering plants embrace the Callaway Gardens aesthetic.

Stow Away Just inside the front door, shelves and a window seat offer a place to stash keys, purses, and tennis shoes.
Skip a Rock A half bath with pebble-tile floor and painted beaded-board walls pulls in colors from the rest of the interior spaces. A
shelf fits perfectly against the front window holding hand towels, soaps, and decorative accents.
Good Night, Moon Twin beds nestle under the eaves for slumber parties. Here, every inch is utilized. Built-in bookshelves, drawers beneath
the beds, and even a narrow window seat claim their spots in the small space. A flat-screen television hangs above the door
for lounge viewing.
Slide On In Sliding barn doors and pocket doors proved huge space savers in the 1,722-square-foot cottage. Not only are they practical,
but they’re also completely in keeping with the cabin aesthetic. The doors are painted a smoky blue to highlight their campy
Curl Up There are plenty of cozy nooks and corners in the Carolina Jessamine cottage. This window seat in the upstairs loft is just
one spot for curling up. Like the rest of the cottage, colors are as bright and cheerful as the surrounding gardens. A butterfly
print pays homage to Callaway Gardens’ butterfly conservatory -- the largest in North America.
Bright Spot Vivid green painted cabinets, an unfinished beaded-board backsplash, and honed granite countertops give modern farmhouse flair
to the kitchen.
Easy Sweep Maple floors provide durability and style. The mushroom gray cabinet finish is right at home amidst the nature-inspired theme.
Perfect Blend Designer Elizabeth Spangler combined delicate silk details, printed cottons, and burlap for an eclectic, yet sophisticated
blend of fabrics in the bedrooms. Pillows, some screen-printed with woodsy scenes, and custom, double-sided draperies recall
the ecological diversity of the forest floor.
Underneath It All Because the house is built on piers, Spangler made good use of the space beneath the house. Marked with pavers, the open space
serves as a potting shed -- complete with a teak gardener’s bench and Adirondack chair.
Tight Weave Interlocking pavers, sculpted to resemble natural flagstone, blend effortlessly into the natural environment.
