Our Florida House: Some Updates

Here are a few shots of our vacation home taken over Labor Day weekend. As you can see, it’s still very much a work in progress, but it’s coming along. This top image is a glimpse of the type of double height walls I’m dealing with, this is a view from the open second floor looking down into the family room. The style of the home is contemporary, with a mash up of architectural elements and hardware from almost every era in design, and not in an eclectic mix kinda way…At any rate, I’ve added a few “before” images at the end, and check out the art in my daughters’ room, a lovely gift from the talented Laura Trevey. I had these prints framed in bold orange and adore the way the art works in this room. In fact, every where I look I see the positive impact this blog has had on the decor of this house…from obtaining “to the trade” items through Susie Isaac’s company, to seeing several pinned inspiration ideas come to life.
