Florida Mississippi Style

In Memory of Janet Garrison 



Boomers…there are a lot of us. We are buying and renovating homes at a record pace. Moving from our cherished homes we’ve raised our families in onto a new adventure in our lives.  The overused, general term is called “downsizing”.  In reality what we are doing is upsizing . These new structures have to live large. Quality and function will be equally planned. We are incorporating all the most important things in our life and looking forward to every aspect of living better in a smaller place.

Designers, fortunately, have opportunities to work with a large number of clients preparing to upsize the quality of their next homes.  These projects are always exciting.  It is rewarding when we get to be part of creating designs filled with so many memories.

Enjoy this amazing collection of Mississippi antiques, arts and furnishings in a recent Florida renovation.  To our client we say Thank You for sharing your home with us!

Final Tweak

Our client ventured out on his own to update the entry to this beautiful property.  First photo is from a text he sent me to ask my opinion.


Next two photos show some simple balancing to scale we did in about 15 minutes via text.  It’s now so easy to have your own personal designer on call no matter how far apart you are.  (this is a shameless plug for using a designer-inquire with us!)
