Swedish Floating Prefabs

I grew up in Miami Beach. There was a an in restaurant Marina called 'Tony's Fish Market' on the 79th St. Causeway. This was back in the days when Sinatra was filming the 'Tony Roma' films and hanging out down the block at a bar called 'Jilly's '.
My very cool uncle who lived at the marina in a house boat. There were many house boats , and I remember what a very cool existence it seemed to be.
Today there are no marina's with house boats in Florida. Maybe I am wrong, it's possible. But I have searched the state. You can find house boat friendly places but they are not house boats that look like houses. They are the vacation rental boat/style. They call themselves house boats, but they all look the same and they do not look or feel like homes.
I found this and was impressed. Imagine the possibilities, if only the would stop zoning Marina's for more condo developement. That is what was happening up in Long Island NY with a house boat community.

This is a great space to do design work. Working with colors in this natural light would be a gift.
I would LOVE to live in one and be part of this very special community.

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.

Private Paradise
