Relaxed Elegance With Modern Flair

Last month, I visited 
my buddy Netta in her 
light filled Winter Park, Florida home.
I only had my pocket camera with me so just imagine 
that her home is much prettier in person...
Netta and I are old friends and I can 
tell you that she had her zebra skin waaay 
before their surge in popularity.
Love this pecky cypress curved, beveled glass door.  
Netta had it stained the muted beige.
The home creates a neutral background for their art collection.

I'm crazy about the red accents here and the mix of antique and modern.

SUCH a great idea to use the over-sized mirror 
from Restoration Hardware instead of a mantel.
And the Louis Ghost chairs and lucite table keep 
the room feeling open.

Love the birch logs…why doesn't Duraflame 
(we can use them in our SF fireplace) 
cover their logs in birch bark paper???  Isn't that a good idea?
Oh, I love this little leather stool.

Netta's husband is an artist and he creates these 
sculptures by pouring metal into fire ant nests.

This room, with beautiful windows and pillars, 
was just added on and serves
as nice spot to read near their master bedroom.

Here is my favorite part of her home…
the kitchen, which is an elegant
mix of clean modern lines and antiques.

I love the traditional subway tiles without upper cabinets and
the streamlined cabinetry opposite.

The door below leads to their center courtyard...
with an outdoor kitchen…so useful, practically year-round in Florida.
Netta and I have the same Staub cast iron pumpkin pot...
hers in Florida and mine in California.

Thank you, Netta and Spot 
for the tour of your stylish home.

Please pray for the victims of the Philippines.  
And thank you for visiting.
