Modern Low Country Style in Tampa

My husband and I arrived in Tampa last night 
and are staying with dear friends, Dorothy and Carlos
before heading up to Gainesville to see our son at school.
This Cuban Tropical tile is on the path leading up to 
their home and the
greens and blues are repeated on the exterior.
Carlos is an architect and designed their home
as a modern interpretation of a low country house
 fifteen years ago.

I like the functional stainless steel counter top "fan."
 The kitchen is 14 years old but feels modern.
As you open this cabinet, it automatically pulls out shelving
 from the corner space...so cool.
The garden is lush with palms and 
this porte-cochere is one of my favorite features.

Notice the gate and column bases...
Carlos said he designed the balcony railing so that he could see out
but it still affords privacy.
What a beautiful start to our vacation!
