Our Florida Home: More Updates

Updates on our Florida vacation home


During the Thanksgiving Holiday, we took a quick trip and were able to get a few things done on our vacation home…here are a few pics of the slow but steady progress we are making in Florida.

While I’m itching to replace the drapes in the living room that came with our house, the fact that some of our living room furniture has arrived is making it easier for me not to focus on them too much.

I like how it’s starting to really come together in there. 

Keeping the green broadloom in the guest room that came with the house, proved not be be as challenging as I had first thought. 

I’m also loving the few little cozy areas that are really starting to take shape…even our landscaping is filling in (plants grow so much faster in Florida…it’s astonishing!)

    Your place looks great. I am intrigued by the peek at the grey sofa, silver pillow and stump table. Not typical Florida.

    It looks very chic and I love how sophisticated your color palette is.
    Most would think Florida is all about bright acid colors.
