ST. SIMONS ISLAND, GA - Georgia Coast Design & Construction has selected Lisa Torbett and Megan Jones of Lisa Torbett Interiors, Elizabeth M. Smith Interiors, Leslie Sutton of Sutton Interiors, Dee Simmons Interiors, Adrian Johnson and Bethany Cassell Vann of Johnson Vann Interiors, and Gail Butler and Liz Sproule of Taylor House Interiors as the interior design team for the 2013 Southern Living Custom Builder Showcase Home at St. Simons Island.
The 2013 Southern Living Custom Builder Showcase Home is under construction on a one-acre, lakefront lot in the Stillwater community on the north end of the island. The three-bedroom home will include such features as vaulted ceilings with rustic beams, cutting edge technology and well designed outdoor living space. The connection between the home’s indoor and outdoor spaces plays an important role in creating a home that embraces lakefront living and promotes a healthy lifestyle, according to Bert Flexer, President of Georgia Coast Design & Construction and a member of the Southern Living Custom Builder Program representing the Golden Isles and Savannah markets.
“European influences and high craftsmanship come together in this three-bedroom European Cottage to create a sense of timeless quality, stability, and tranquility,” Flexer said. “Behind the scenes, energy and water efficient technologies combine with low maintenance materials to create a home that is economical to maintain for years to come.” The St. Simons Showcase Home is ‘Smart Sized’ at approximately 2,400 square feet to reflect current trends in home size and style, Flexer added.
