Y’all have enjoyed her recipes in your kitchen and her delicious Southern meals in her Savannah restaurants, but did you know you can also enjoy Paula Deen’s Tybee Island Style? Paula’s beach house sits perched along a scenic little street, just a winking and a waving as if to say Y’all Come Inn!
“One thing I want y’all to know is that this beach house is all Paula. She and I went tromping through these stores, pulling two and three shopping buggies at a time and Paula was just a yanking and tossing pillows, fabrics, and stuff right off the shelves!” Brandon says Paula gets inspired by family, friends and the happy colors found throughout Savannah and the surrounding low country. “We got a sideboard for the foyer from Paris Market and some other pieces from Two Women and a Warehouse and she even pulled a beautiful piece from the house where she films. Of course, the newer, bigger pieces of furniture are from Paula’s very first furniture collection.”
Everywhere you look you’ll find special, personal touches from Paula’s collections of personal photographs and momentos from her travels and experiences. She even made a couple of the shell covered lamps herself! Paula had first commissioned local Savannah artist Cathy Jarman to create some shelled pieces and since she loved them so much she asked Cathy to teach her how to start “shelling” her own pieces.
Of course, the best way to enjoy Paula Deen’s Tybee Island Style is to come on down and get right up in the middle of it. Y’all Come Inn is available for rentals all year round and you’ll find it’s got a beautiful, fully stocked kitchen with Paula’s cookware, kitchenware, utensils and such. You’ll always find a gracious helping of Paula’s spices and mixes and, yes, even a stick of butter in the refrigerator when you check in. Create your favorite dishes in Paula’s kitchen from your personally autographed Paula Deen cookbook and be sure to make the time to enjoy the complimentary VIP Dining Reservations at both The Lady and Sons and Uncle Bubba’s restaurants that are included with each rental.
Paula Deen’s Tybee Island Style is just like you like it. It’s colorful, warm and just like a big hug from someone you love. Y’all Come Inn real soon!
“As always with Mermaid Cottages we were extremely pleased with the experience, starting with the personal care and attention from the staff. Save the Whales is a very charming cottage literally a couple minutes walk to the beach. I will stay there again.”
