“As with the home’s exterior, I wanted the interior to seem as if it has been collected and pulled together over time,” says Kay. The couple brought antiques east from Kansas City and combined them with painted pieces, flea market finds, and antique reproductions for a casual beach look. “Carolyn got what I was trying to do with the old, beat-up kind of thing,” says Kay. “We scoured Savannah antiques stores for one-of-a-kind finds and piecemealed the rooms together.”
