You have spent your life taking care of your kids and now that you are empty nesters you finally can put your energy and money into that Florida vacation beach house you have always dream of. Sound familiar? This is a dream of many of us have and this exactly what this couple did.
The homeowners of this Florida vacation home are from Mississippi and have been vacationing in Watersound for years. They have had condos but decided to build a home where their entire family could be together, including their five grandchildren! They wanted something that was different than their primary residence but didn’t want a home that screamed the beach. They went for a simple cottage style home. To keep the transition flowing from room-to-room, the interior designer, Courtney Dickey from T.S. Adams Studio, painted the entire living area in Benjamin Moore OC-17 White Dove – the perfect soothing off-white for a seaside home.
Take a look at this beautiful Florida vacation home. You will love it even if you aren’t an empty nester just yet…
Imagine spending every summer in a cute and welcoming beach cottage like this one. Life would be a tiny little better, right? 😉
