Beautiful horizontal lines look fabulous against the original vertical box car siding running along the walls. The conch shells, found by the owner along a beach in Isla Mujeres, line a tall shelf with no visible means of support. Large pieces of art lean against the wall. They depict the deep pools of water that have carved their way through tunnels of limestone. They, along with the shells, give this whole scene an organic touch. Baskets for storage! One of my favorite pictures!
Beautiful tall windows let in natural light and serve as pieces of art with each pane framing a beautiful garden view.
A wall removed between the Kitchen and the Family Room opens the space up. The two rooms just flow into one another to make one big room that has great vibes – so comfortable to be in!
A coffee bar in a cozy nook of the Kitchen with shelves just deep enough to line up cups and saucers. Cabinets are cut into the wall to provide five inches of depth: perfect for vases, pitchers and candlesticks.
A bar area with a tree house view. Black pearl granite with a polished sheen sits atop a cabinet with a yummy, smooth, and glossy coat of Smokey Taupe paint. Polished travertine tiles add to the beautiful, rich neutral tones.
Black pearl granite sparkles with crystal pieces in shades of purple and blue . Seeded glass cabinets also shimmer in the light.
A delicate wooden side chair with Gothic details wears a sexy short skirt with lovely ballet slipper ties.
A pair of Chinese Chippendale wing chairs with custom box pleated slipcovers in taupe linen tied in back with six elegant bows.
Paint your ceiling the palest of blues. The tradition of painting ceilings blue, especially porch ceilings, has been popular in the south for many, many years. Originally called “Haint Blue”, the blue paint was thought to spook away evil spirits. Additionally, it was thought the blue would keep wasps another winged creatures from building nests on their porch by fooling them into thinking the ceiling was the sky. I like the blue topper because of the lofty heights it helps your room reach up to. It also imparts a relaxing feeling.My favorite blue is Glass Slipper by Benjamin Moore Classic Colors.
