Scenes From Our Vacation House

School's officially out for summer around here.  Last week, we thought we would keep our three kids busy and possibly tire them out a bit with some tropical sun and surf by taking a quick trip down to Florida.  Of course, my children have more energy than ever with all that fresh air. One cancelled flight odyssey back to New York, this past weekend, has left Mr. Zhush and I completely exhausted.  I did manage to take a few pictures of the progress on our home, although truthfully not much was done this trip.  While artwork and light fixtures still wait in boxes for installation, I'm happy that our new navy drapes with white Greek key trim (see below) were installed.  This all white, extra tall room really needed some color and I think these new window treatments really helped to define the style of this space.  Hopefully, the next time we head down, I'll have a lot more to show...I'm especially interested in tackling some of our outdoor spaces now, since that's really what a vacation home in Florida is all about.

P.S. I really want to replace these door knobs, maybe with something like this!
