Inside a stylish and sophisticated weekend retreat in Georgia!

This getaway property with a private lake in Greene County, Georgia belongs to the owners of Design Galleria Kitchen and Bath Studio, Ric Parrish and Matthew Quinn. They loved the property so much that after the initial property viewing, Quinn immediately created new renderings for the existing rustic hunt cabin.
