"I painted all the interior doors a high gloss black lacquer to define the space a bit more. We have such a small home, I wanted maximum impact...and I also wanted you to feel each seperate space"thank you, courtney, from all of us! i love your home it's such a great example of how all of these things, we so often read and write about can be used. you've done an exceptional job with your darling bungalow!
just so some of that magical design ju-ju will rub off.
Megan, I would love for you to stand really close because I would hope your artistic skills rubbed off on me. Girl can do wonders with a paintbrush in hand!
Thanks so much for letting us in. Love your color combinations. It's so fun to see the Pieces chairs and your Anthropologie & Adler choices mixed in your own highly personal way.
SUCH a great post!
Thanks for the comments. I am beyond flattered.
Anyone have any tips on finding similar furniture in SE Florida?
The buffet was bought at Storehouse before they went out of business. It holds a substantial amount of stuff, which is needed in these smaller homes!
Thanks Megan!! xx
