Family-Friendly Historic Waterfront Home

Designer Carter Kay took a historic Savannah, Georgia, house and turned it into a family-friendly home. The home features a coastal-meets-traditional style throughout the main living quarters and a newly created guest cottage. Natural materials are paired with a neutral color palette and raw elements to create an organic feel.
