After living in The Rhett House Inn for several years, the Harrisons turned to Jim Thomas, the architect who had led the restoration and renovation of the inn. “We had land at the back of the property to build a house,” says Marianne. “We wanted it to blend with the inn and look like it had been there forever.”
Influenced by crisp British Colonial style, Marianne limited the interior palette to clean white and rich ebony shades. She furnished the spaces with classic American and English pieces previously housed in the inn or handcrafted locally.
