Here's the entrance from the carport. It's meant to be a mudroom of sorts:
The shelves were built ins. They hold a bowl for keys and generally are full of things we need to take with us when we leave the house. Under the shelves, tw added hooks for bags, jackets, and hats. The bench used to be the coffee table -- I just created a cushion for it. The shoes fit perfectly underneath. We're still looking for the perfect rug.
Heading to the right is the new hanging TV. Our friends Jess & JD bought the wall mount for tw's birthday last year and we finally got it up (I say we, I mean Robb!)
For now, tw's grandmother's table (usually in the kitchen) is holding all electronic equipment. Eventually, there will be a 60s-ish credenza there for everything to hide in and the wires will be corralled neatly out of sight.
Next is the couch with all new pillows. tw had all the fabric, all I had to do was sew!
The coffee table was an auction find at least 12 years ago. Both that and the two-tiered "puzzle" table on the side of the couch were found at the same auction house in Ocala - the first auction we ever went to, if I remember correctly.
The chair is a Heywood Wakefield piece we found in Orlando. That door leads to the screened porch. The rug was a phenomenal find from Joss & Main, an online decorator store.
We've added a few things since this was taken, namely the stadium seats tw bought from Shea Stadium before it was torn down. There is LA Dodger art on the wall as well (he's a staunch National League fan, if you can't tell).
Finally, the view from the Florida room into the kitchen.
We're using my grandmother's garden table for a kitchen table at the moment. And have paint swatches on the wall searching for a tamer green... I'll keep you updated on how that goes. In the end, we really created a great place to relax and are thrilled with the way it turned out!
