Long Dune Residence By Hammer Architects

Hammer Architects is responsible for this stunning home that is not only beautiful on the outside but equally outstanding on the inside. I was first taken back by this project when I saw the main living area of the home. All of the Danish furniture and lighting got my attention rather quickly. The open tall ceiling gives volume to this main space that lets the furniture and art command some attention. I like the profile of the house being low and one level. The amount of light provides by a backside of windows is a nice architecture element. Read More

10 Vibrant Tropical Dining Rooms With Colorful Zest

The idea that a home draped in tropical style feels like an delightful getaway and brings a hint of that exotic goodness indoors is the reason why so many homeowners are willing to give it a shot.

Mid Century Modern By Frank DePasquale

Frank DePasquale designed this mid century Florida home in 1963. I get excited about homes like this, why? The reason I get excited and love finding homes for sale like this is that they are move in ready. There isn’t any pink or green bathrooms to remodel (nothing against pink or green bathrooms if that is your thing). The home, for me livable just the way it sits. The travertine floors are stunning. The wood section of wall adds a bit of warmth. The rock garden that feels as thought it is spanning from the outside in needs much more attention, some modern plants would be perfect. The price doesn’t seem outrageous but then again I am not that familiar with Florida. Read More
