Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


When I first saw this house at my friend’s blog, Conspicuous Style, I was really blown away by it! The house has amazing views and if you read this blog for a while you know how much I love a house with a beautiful view. This house is located in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida and it’s truly amazing. It has 5 bedrooms, 6 and 1/2 bathrooms, 7,000 sq.ft., a guesthouse and it’s absolutely gorgeous inside. Have ever thought of moving to Florida? This house is for sale for $ 5.5 mil.

Take a look and tell me what you think!



This foyer is very unique. I adore the light fixtures. Interesting art display (covering the window).

Living Room

This space is just gorgeous! I love the furniture, take a look at those chairs!

Dining Room

Great elements for a dreamy dining room: high ceilings, lots of windows, access to the outdoors, a light fixture that makes a big impact. Chairs? Chairs are more appealing to me if they have fabric on them (upholstered or slip covered).

Zen Kitchen

This is a very sleek and simple kitchen. It blends into the architecture of the house and make the place feel calm.

Family Room

This room has a more modern feel and great views.

Master Bedroom

Really well done! The ceilings are great and the views are even better!

Master Bathroom

My favorite thing here are the light fixtures.

The Other Side

When I saw the first picture I thought this bathroom was too beige, but I think it has a lot to do with the light. This is the same bathroom, just another picture of the other direction. It looks brighter and better.

Guest Bedroom

This room is beautiful. Very neutral, which is good for a guest bedroom, plus I love the built-ins.

Happy Kids’ Bedroom

This is to inspire! Perfect if you have 2 children and little space. The beds go up and loads of storage down. Plus, take a look at that super fun bath! I’m in love with this one!

Guesthouse_ Foyer

I really like it!

Guesthouse_ Family Room

I’m not sure what to think of this console made of shells… Do you love it or hate it?

Guesthouse_ Kitchen

This is just the cutest guest house kitchen!

Guesthouse_ Eating Area

This place has a cottage-y vibe.

Guesthouse_ Art Studio

I love everything here, the space itself and the art.

Guesthouse_ Bedroom

I’m intrigued by the color on the walls. I think it’s a great one for the bedroom.

L-o-v-e-l-y! Notice the ceiling being painted green and the painted brick walls.

I loved the main house and how comfy the guesthouse feels. Many rooms and decor to get inspired here. Now, let me know your thoughts on this one.

Baby News: I just want to thank many of you that write me emails asking how I’m feeling lately and how The baby is doing. Thank God, I’m feeling great and our baby boy is really strong. I’m 25 weeks pregnant now (time flies, right?!) and I’m feeling really healthy. Being pregnant is not always easy on you. Life is busy around here but I really can’t and won’t complain about anything because I feel blessed.

Some people asked me if we’ve chosen the name already and we did! Finally, hubby and I agreed to name our son “Matthew”. I love the meaning of it: “Gift of God”, which he really is. I’ve told you before that he was a big surprise for all of us. We have two more small children (ages 6 and 5) and we thought we were “done”. We even donated all of our kids’ things last year, but God had other plans and he sent this baby to us. Having to buy everything again is being fun but a bit stressful at times. Still, we’re really grateful for everything. Our kids are enjoying every minute of this pregnancy. They sing, talk and read to Matthew. Nobody goes to bed before giving a kiss to my belly. 🙂

Thank you for your love and friendship. Thank you for letting me share this very special moment of my life with you. It makes everything feel even better.

Have a wonderful and safe day!

  2. Awww… Margo!

    Many, many blessings to you and your family as well.

    Have you thought of using a variation of Matthew to honor your ethnicity? My husband Mike (spelled Mikael) is of swedish descent so we named ours Matthias, the scandinavian version. He still goes my Matt. Stole the idea from my girlfiend of Italian descent who names her son Matteo. sooooo cool. Good luck with the next few months! Love your posts, so unique.

  4. Hi Laura!

    Actually, this is a very interesting question. My family is from Brazil and I know they’ll be calling our son “Mateus”, very close to “Matteo” (my family is Italian btw). I hope he doesn’t get too confused! 🙂

    Thank yo so much for your kind words. So nice to hear form you.

    I love the name Matthew, blessings to the belly!!! That console table wouldn’t last 5 minutes in my house!! 😀

  6. Claire Marie said,

    If I’m being honest (which I should be, right?? haha) I don’t care for any of the interiors. I had high expectations when I saw the outside, because I think its an interesting twist on a traditional home. What I do love about the interior is that of the guest house. They got that almost spot-on (for me). Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to spend a few nights in either one given the opportunity 😉

    Happy for the good baby news. My how time flies! I know a few Matthews and they are good, decent people. Its a strong name 🙂

    Another mesmerizing home! My favorite space is the loft area with the artwork. It’s just gorgeous, and I’m with you, I love the artwork. As for the shell console… um, not so much. Those shells would look so much better laying on the sand at the beach 🙂

    Thank you for sharing your pregnancy journey with us, Luciane. It is such a privilege to be included. And Matthew – what a perfect name for this little guy!

    Hugs to you,
    xo Sheila

  8. The enchanted home said,

    So excited for you about Matthew, love the name, its so strong, classic and masculine. Congrats to your entire family and there is something about that last somewhat unexpected baby that keeps you wanting more, forewarning! I cannot imagine life without my third son, I would be bored silly and probably have like 20 blogs strictly out of boredom, thank goodness God gave him to us! I know you too will cherish this gift from God.
    Onto this spectacular home..this house could make me become agrophobic, never again leaving the house, just deliver my weekly food supply and I am good. WOW…..total perfection indeed!
    Feel great Lucianne!

  9. Tereza said,

    esta casa tem tudo o que eu mais gosto, como os tons naturais, muita madeira, aquela luminária em ferro e vidro sobre a mesa, estou louca por uma dessas e as telas marinhas em tons mais que perfeitos.
    Parabéns pelo post, amei.

  10. Erin said,

    Oh my goodness, this home is incredible!! I just love the vibe going on! But more importantly here, I’m so happy to hear you and the baby are doing so good! AND that you picked the name Matthew…it really couldn’t be any more perfect!!!

  11. SizzleandZoom said,

    I love that you share your new baby Matthew with us. It’s so heartwarming and it makes me smile. You have lovely taste picking the homes you showcase for us and this one is wonderful.

  12. michele@hellolovelyinc said,

    loving so many details in this inspiring home. that room with the painted brick–bless my soul. and that studio space with the art and the pattern of the hardwoods–have mercy!

    so glad you are feeling well, and you will soon know the joy of sons–plural–which has made our lives so rich.



  13. Marianne {Style For Living} said,

    Wow, Lucianne, that’s quite a home. The setting alone looks like absolute paradise!

    Happy to hear you and baby are doing well. Love the name Matthew, so perfect for you new little guy! xo

  14. Stacy said,

    I’m glad you reposted this…I fell in love with this house, too, obviously! But onto more important things….MATTHEW!! Great name, and I know he will be a great addition. I’m so happy for you my friend!

  15. Kathy said,

    That’s my grandson’s name, I call him my little Matthew Man….I love it and now you will have a little Matthew Man too…great news so glad you are doing well, on Friday we find out if Matthew is having a sister or brother…he wants and *boy* mom and dad want a girl and I don’t care either way….
    My Dad just closed on a home in St Pete, FL and asked me to help him decorate his new 10,000sq ft spanish style home…twist my arm:) but I won’t be able to do like this place, he is very traditional..wanna come help me?

  16. Gloria said,

    Great pregnancy news! Thanks for sharing. Love the name, but even more than that, love the meaning behind it and why you chose it: Gift of God. Beautiful.

  17. PriscilaPetersDecor said,

    Oi, Lu
    How have you been? I’m back and trying to catch up… Glad to know that you and your baby are doing fine.

    This home is stunning. I really like the decor. The dining room is so beautiful.
    Have a great day.

  18. kathysue said,

    congratulations on your little Matthew. My first son’s name is Matthew and I too loved the meaning. My Matthew is now a Dad himself with a little girl Sarah. I am very blessed indeed as You and your sweet family are!! Kathysue

  19. Victoria Athens said,

    The house is lovely, although I do not like the shell console, but — more important — what great news that all is going well with your pregnancy. I love the name Matthew, but I also love Matteo (maybe because my family is Italian also). Don’t worry about confusion. Matthew will come to view it as a term of endearment. All the best. Victoria
