Often going unseen, these flowers obviously have to preceed the berries.

There are many variegated Hollies available. However some are male and some female, so if it’s berries you are after, ask first. This variety is ‘Aureomarginata’

And this one ‘Silver Queen’

And this one ‘Baccilava’

Or if you just want an impenetrable hedge, they are great everywhere unless you want to walk nearby in bare feet !!!
