Eclectic, Peaceful, Original, and 100% Comfortable

We got home today. I was a bit sad to leave the beach, but am comforted knowing that I get to go back in a month or two. And would you believe that we were so busy getting everything set up (and, consequently, too tired and too longing to lounge around on the beach) that I forgot to take pics?!? I didn't even get one of all of us out at dinner! So, unfortunately, I can't share pics of the house yet (we didn't have the bookshelves completely done anyway). BUT I can say that it is sort of a mix between this...

And I know those photos don't do it justice. All the cabinets, the mantel, and (I think) the ceiling supports are made of dead head cypress (which is gorgeous! Read about deadhead cypress harvesting near our special part of Florida here). The fireplace and island are concrete mixed with seashells (cool, but I kept accidentally kicking the island from my barstool and chipping shells off - oops!). And all the walls are painted wood planks, which looks like beadboard. I'm hoping to get pics next time we go down!

After just finishing our April issue and sending it off to the printer, this inviting daybed with ocean view is exactly where I want to spend my entire weekend!

Me too! I am excited for the warmer, sunny weather in store for this weekend! Can't wait to see what's new in the April issue!
