Does Florida Have Its Own Decorating Style?

People who have never been to the Sunshine State may be unaware of Florida’s unique culture, style, and overall vibe.

Outsiders often view our state as sand, ocean, and an endless row of hotels wrapping the inland — they may also throw in a few mental images of alligators and theme parks for good measure.

Condominiums are as much a part of life in Florida as the beach, sun, and key lime pie. If you moved from a single-family residence to a condo, however, you may not have as much space as you’ve become accustomed to.

Or maybe you have large rooms in your condo but not as many as in your old space. If you’ve chosen condo life, there are a few tricks you can use to maximize your space, celebrate the view, and enjoy the Florida condo experience.

4 Pieces of Furniture that Will Make You Want to Redecorate

Have you ever walked into a furniture showroom, flipped over the page of a magazine, or even saw a piece of furniture in the home of a friend and thought, “If I owned that, I’d redecorate my entire home!”

Tying a Room together with Interior Design

We all know the struggles of making a room match. We've all asked ourselves, "How do I make this sofa work with this table?" or "How do I decorate my living room to show off all my different styles?"

It's certainly not an easy feat, especially when we finally unpack the dream furniture just to find it might not go together as well as we'd hoped. Or when we've finished decorating and realize it looks like it has multiple personalities.

In more recent years, many decorators and home décor enthusiasts have opted for minimalism for its guarantee of a simpler, decluttered, and often sustainable space.
