Large slabs of Carrara marble mixed with intricate palisandro bluette detailing complement the Roman motifs in the his and hers shower.




Williams also noted Ferguson’s “ability to handle both a modern sensibility and more traditional vibe with a clear sense of proportion and scale.” To us, this is one of the most difficult acheivements in design, simply because it’s easiest to master the style that is your favorite.

Mixing styles and bouncing back and forth between them can prove challenging for even the most skilled designers. But, as this home proves, not for Harrison. We can’t wait to see what the Southeast Residential Designer of the Year does next!
