1- This week has been all about getting our finishes onto the website. We get A LOT of questions about paint colors, hardware, lighting, barstools etc... So, I've finally put it all together in our new shop. Interested in a particular paint palette? Wondering what kind of wood and stain we used on that ceiling? Want to know all the finishes in a whole house? It's there- and I'll be adding more projects in the coming weeks. If there's something missing that you're interested in, send me an email and I'll add it.
2- Last weekend was amazing and we're hoping for a repeat this weekend. After burning the candle at both ends for way too long, we turned our phones off, played in the pool, got a lot of fresh air and sunshine, took naps and went out for brunch. It was wonderful. You're probably getting ready for warm weather too, so I thought I would share my favorite beach towels. You can find them at Serena & Lily.
3- And speaking of brunch, if you're ever on 30A and are looking for a Sunday brunch spot, you'll definitely want to try The Pearl. And you'll also want to grab the table at the end of the terrace. Absolute perfection.
4- We're in the process of making plans for our new home and currently working on ideas for an interior renovation, a small expansion, the addition of dormer windows and a good bit of landscaping work. We're gaining a lot of inspiration from this book that we received as a gift from a client several years ago . It's the story of a renovation of an old stone house in southern California and a masterpiece of casually elegant architecture. It is so, so beautiful.
5- Stay tuned. We're working on some exciting developments and can't wait to share with you!
Old Seagrove Homes was created out of a chance meeting one summer night on a roof deck overlooking the beach in 2007. While Alex was already running a construction company, Cynthia had studied fine arts and design. Three children and many projects later, the couple knew that what had started out as a construction company, was quickly growing into something much more. Today, Alex and Cynthia Rice work together as a design team, building inspiring homes from conception to construction and custom finishes. Thanks for following along with us!
