Big news. I am house hunting. Again. I have decided on Venice, Florida, about 30 minutes south. Although I love the house here, a great house is not enough. A house in not a home. I will leave it at that. The good news is that I will have a new house and will share the house hunting, renovating, decorating, and all of it here. I am really looking forward to this next chapter. If any of you know Venice and have ideas for me, let me know, please. Trying to narrow down neighborhoods. This weekend the puppies and I will take a long drive and explore more by car - so far I have just been looking online. I have a wonderful agent down here who I worked with on this house, so that's good.
Venice is chic, low key, historic, great restaurants and beaches, really nice vibe. I'm very excited to go "full on" Palm Beach/Chinoiserie/Florida/Tropical in my new house. My daughter wants a Tiki Bar in the lanai. I have extra rolls of wallpaper from my laundry room and dining room in Virginia that I hope to use, especially the Brunschwig & Fils laundry room paper "Ironing Bored" that was a Palm Beach favorite before it was discontinued.
