Some places can tend to make me breath deeper, want to disconnect more and simply just be. That place for me is by the water. Whether a lake or ocean I am impartial. We have some dear friends that bought a new place in Water Sound, 30- A Florida. They asked if I would help decorate it in exchange for trip time. Of course I said yes and to be honest they wouldn't have had to make any sort of deal, but don't tell them that. We are trying to save for Disney so this makes a perfect extra family vacation on a budget. They are planning to rent it out some so I had to mindful of that. Plus their young adult children and crew of friends can put a beating on a house. This was no hard renovation, but more of a facelift. We changed out most of the furniture as thier style is more young and organic in feel by sticking to a simple palette of black, white, and wood tones. Most of the lighting changed and a good coat of paint everywhere was a definite need. Once the owners decide to make this a more permanent destination and no longer use it for a rental we will make a few more changes in the kitchen and baths. My favorite part may be all the art. We had it all commissioned by the owners mother! She is such a brilliant artist and put every vision we had into play. Here are some of my favorite snippets from a place that exudes peace.
