Greek Revival Home of Landscape Designer Jon Carloftis

Before you even walk through the front door of a landscape designer’s home, you can probably guess that you’re in for a treat.

Symmetry, scale and a keen eye for detail are, after all, a part of a landscape designer‘s day to day routine.

So maybe we weren’t surprised, per se, when we first got a peek inside Jon Carloftis’s stunning home. But we were delighted all the same!

It’s one of those places that seems effortlessly thrown together yet perfectly choreographed.

Each and every moment is perfectly collected and completely refined but nothing seems overly planned,

As though the bulk was planned but some of the details came together of their own accord.

In fact, we’d say, these interiors are a bit like the perfect garden.

Because, in our homes, our gardens and our lives, sometimes the most beautiful moments are the surprises, the things that weren’t ever a part of the plan to begin with.

A fresh wood pile ready for the fire is a charming reminder of the outdoors.

You really can’t ever have too many silver treasures–especially julep cups, which have so many uses!

A blend of masculine and feminine elements in this room make it cozy and just a hint rustic.

Maybe this is an author’s perspective, but you can really never have too many books. And a landscape designer’s home must have plants! They’re the perfect combination.

Few home styles are as classic and traditional as a beautiful Greek Revival

The peerless landscape surrounding this home is the icing on the cake! What is your favorite part of this fabulous Greek Revival?

What Splendid Sass had to Say about Slightly South of Simple: (That is a LOT of good alliteration!)

“I have just finished Slightly South of Simple by Kristy Woodson Harvey. As with the other two books Kristy wrote, Dear Carolina and Lies and Other Acts of Love, I fell in love with this book. Kristy is a great Southern author, writing about strong women and their love and support for each other. Family is at the forefront of each book… creating a storyline that makes this book one of the best I have read.”
Teresa, Splendid Sass
