Saints of Old Florida

Lovelace Interiors

Did you stumble on this book while you were out and about on your last beach trip? It is one of the neatest books about the Florida Panhandle! The book features various coastal towns discovered by the Spanish settlers. It’s a mix of old and new, sharing old life stories and recipes with today’s coastal lifestyle. The photography is off the charts and the texture of the paper really gives you that old map feeling. We love this book so much, we have exclusive author signed copies available for purchase! They’re a unique holiday gift idea for the beach lovers in your life!

Email or call 850-837-5563 to purchase your copy.

All Things Gold & Brass

Brass and gold are so hot right now! And we’re very glad it’s not quite as shiny as it was back in the day. Manufacturers are leaning towards a more antique or matte finish. We’re loving how it’s making its way to into homes.  Some people aren’t fond of mixing the gold tones with silver, but it keeps it a little less trendy when you mix your finishes. Here are a few of our go-to furnishings and accessories we love to mix into our design jobs!

We’re also going to show you different ways you can style your bar cart, for various entertaining needs!

Elements and Principles of Design, Part 3

Summer Intern Series Part 3:

Designer: Cara McBroom; Written by: Carolyn SanfordBlue Sanctuary is located on the shore of the Emerald Coast. The colors of the coast are unified in the interior space with lively blues and greens amongst the plush, contemporary furniture. The wall covering and fabrics are bold color choices that resemble water while the rug and tile selection compliments sand. In this comfortable seating area your senses are stimulated by different patterns and textures.

This bold wet bar is sure to be an eye catcher in any space. The rectangular shelves are an unexpected solution to traditional cabinets. Backlit shelves create rhythm and emphasis amongst this contemporary bar that provides an energy one would not expect to find. Again, careful selection of blue and green tiles makes the bar flow harmoniously with the emerald coast.

Floor to ceiling windows provide adequate daylight so the chandeliers and light fixtures were able to have fun with and use as pieces of art. From sea glass chandeliers to bronze sunbursts the designer was able to bring in different selections of chandeliers and lights into Blue Sanctuary that compliment the Emerald Coast. Imaginary lines are created with the careful placement of furniture in this large open floor plan. The designer was able to space plan a dining room as well as two different living areas that all flow harmoniously together.

Each bedroom is a variety of contrasting textures and finishes. In this master bedroom the vibrant cobalt blues pop against the different variations of gray fabrics. From satin to velvet to wool, the textures are endless in this bedroom.

Space planning is an extremely important part of interior design. This designer was able to provide multiple forms of seating in each bedroom through careful space planning. The designer chose traditional pieces of furniture with a contemporary edge. Another creative design that was done in this bedroom is the use of faux blinds. The only windows in this bedroom are in the corner, so the designer continued the fabric onto the adjoined wall in order to create an impressive finish.

When looking at this gorgeous living room, you can see symmetry. Symmetry shows that you can cut the image in half, and it will be the same on both sides. If that isn’t the case, then it would be called asymmetrical. There’s balance between the chairs on each side of the coffee table. There is also symmetry between the lamp, chests, and draperies. Creating a room that is symmetrical is very common in design and is easy on the eyes.
