Seaside Designer Showhome (part 2)

Continuing on from my previous post of part 1 of the Seaside Designer Show home….

Below is the family room area as you enter in from the entrance. (Sorry for the dark photos – it was a dark, rainy day, and I should have used adjusted my camera’s setting.)It is attached to the kitchen, and I was told that this room is normally used as the dining area. On the right you can see there are doors to one of the sunrooms. It is actually a large space, but these photos are not doing justice to this room’s spaciousness.


This is a grand, 2 story room. The room from above:


Beyond the wood stove at the far end of the family area is a little nook that the designers made into a kid’s play/costume area. This is normally a sitting area:



As you look up from the family room, there is a walkway all around on the 2nd floor with bookshelves.


A view looking up from the other side of the family room. You can see the kitchen straight ahead and the loft area above:fam4

Now, here is the kitchen. I was excited because the fabulous bloggers Seleta and Modgirl decorated it:



I really like the punch of color from the wallpaper in the glass front shelves:


Now, I’m going to take you upstairs. There is another sunroom, but I’ll show you that room later. On the left side of this staircase is the living room/dining room/entrance that was in part 1.


As you turn the corner at the top of the stairs, there is a fun wall of open frames:


Here you end up with in the loft/library area. This area was done by Tracery Interiors, another blog I love to read. (They have great before and afters.I visited their store in Rosemary Beach earlier in the week. What eye candy!)

Here are the bookcases I showed you from the family room. There are 2 of these walls running lengthwise along the walkway above the family area.


The office area ( loved that chandelier!!) :



On the other end of the walkway was a sitting area. If you can envision it, the play area is under this area. I love the white with all the punches of color:



Okay, so now I’m going to walk back down the walkway/bookcase area, and go up a few steps to the master bedroom.There is also a display of open frames similar to the other stairwall going up to the loft area.staircasewall2

Hope you enjoyed this part of the tour. The master and the guest room will be in part 3-sorry to have to tease you with all these parts. I just have so many pictures!

Till next time-
