More Updates From Florida


Updates From Florida


I finally had a chance to sort through the rest of the photos from our recent trip to Florida.

Even though I’m still waiting on our new navy curtains for the living room (I get so impatient with crazy long lead times!) a lot of progress was actually made.

It was great to finally add some decor accents and accessories (mostly from my store) and really start zhushing up the place. 

A bold blue mirror and a fun little bar cart, both originally intended for the dining room, ended up working perfectly in a weird little nook right off the kitchen. I love the way they both fit into this odd space, making the whole area look almost intentional. 

The Martinque wallpaper in the guest bath looks amazing.

I tried to capture it here, but without any natural light and given the tiny dimensions of this powder room (that we retro fitted into a full bath) it wasn’t such an easy task.

The bathroom is very tight and small, yet it has crazy high ceilings, so the banana leaf paper takes on a rain forest canopy feel…I think it really works.
