Editor's Note: Today I am wearing a dress by Rag & Bone and Banana Republic heels.
Happy Wednesday! It's hump day and Dallas day. Two of my favorites! Doing Dallas Day in the summer months when the car reads 110 degree is not exactly fun--but finding treasures and fabrics for my jobs is always a pleasure! I don't always read the the letter from the editor at the beginning of the magazine but today I did. I did not know that Traditional Home has a new editor---and the June issue is her first issue. I loved reading her thoughts on Traditional design--and I could hear her excitement in her well written words. I loved the part about how antiques and collectibles are passed down to generations and how we weave them into our lives now. I did not think either one of my twins would want the Victorian chest and tall mirror that was my great-grand parents. Riley said yes she did want it--and wants to use it as a bar in a future living room. What a fabulous way to use a beloved piece in a fresh way! Today I am featuring Luke Bryan's four-story Florida beach house that they fondly call "Snowman." Happy summer everyone--make it a fabulous day!
Love the hanging day bed--and that view!! Super wow!!
Great views from all four levels of this oh so traditional beach front home. Oh how I love staring at the beach and listening to the waves. Pure heaven! The fourth story was an addition to the house built in 1988. The original house was described as "Miami Vice meets Dynasty!" Oh my!
What an absolutely precious family!
What a great moment! Love the settee with the tufted cushions in sand color. The beaded chandelier is so whimsy. A very unique and cool way to hang the piece of art in front of a window with the sheen behind. It truly looks like you are looking at this landscape out the window.
A larger view of the same room. The soft palette of white and sand is so perfect for the beach.
The deep blue that is used in the house represents the deep blue you see in the ocean at the horizon. How special is that! Comfortable--easy, breezy, upholstery, and very family friendly and welcoming!
The slip covered sofa offers such a relaxed feeling to the room. Love, love the colors in the rug and the touches of blue in the other wise neutral room.
This is the "formal" dining room of the house. Obviously the normal "attire" in the dining room is shorts and bare feet! What a view to dine by-so divine!
More slip covering here in the slip covered bar stools from Lee Industries. I sold so much Lee furniture when I worked at The Market that the said I sold more personally than most stores as a whole. Beautiful, Alabama White marble counters! The floors are reclaimed antique heart pine salvaged from a factory in Georgia.
The master bedroom features shiplap walls painted in a soft ethereal gray. How soothing! Lovely a peaceful!
The feminine shape of the master tub was purposely chosen to offset a lot of the more masculine features of the house.
The numbers going down the hallway are vintage markers from tennis courts.
So much fun to convert these surf boards to outdoor to showers!
The fourth floor has a bunk room and sitting area. Very appropriate to be outfitted in a nautical theme. This home is truly a relaxing, well done family retreat. The home always calms and restores. Especially for this busy family!
