(Pumpkin) Spice Up your Autumn - in the Kitchen

Autumn in Florida often requires a willingness to alter your typical idea of the season. Here, if the temperature dips below 85 for at least two consecutive days, we flock to our local meteorologists for an update, while simultaneously unboxing cozy knits, lighting an array of candles, and sipping on pumpkin spice everything. Many of our homeowners will gather around their outdoor fireplace or firepit as the evening air becomes just a bit cooler!

Forecasting 2021's Color Trends for Home Design

Home is where the heart is, where you lay your hat, and where you rest your feet. Lately home might also be where you work, where your kids learn, or where you've decided to try your hand at recreating vintage macramé plant holders. Ever the multitasker, your house’s most important one is creating an environment that matches your aesthetic.

When planning your custom home’s color palette or adding an accent color to a room in your newly built home, your colors and décor should reflect your vibe.

Florida Landscaping in 2020

Bob Dylan sang, “The Times They Are a-Changin'.” It’s doubtful he imagined 2020, but this has certainly been a year charged with change.

Interior Design Trends for Modern Bathrooms

Bathrooms are having a moment. Like closets, they are no longer just rooms of utility or an interior design after-thought.

From getting ready for the day to relaxing in a bubble bath, the bathroom has become a place of refuge.

Leisure is a Lifestyle in Florida’s Golf Club Communities

The Concession, Founders Club, Lakewood Ranch Golf & Country Club and The Oaks

As master-planned golf communities took off in popularity during the 50s and 60s, and again in the 90s, golf became a way of life for many part- and full-time Floridians who enjoy spending their days on the links. Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch and Bradenton are home to many world-famous golf courses, such as The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch Country Club, The Oaks Club on Sarasota Bay, and The Founders Golf Club in Sarasota.
