Millwork Heaven !

What could be better
than the ocean and loads of beautiful MILLWORK?

Oh yes....and shingles.

The window seat up on the landing....charming.
And more views of the ocean.

I could be blogging on on my laptop right there on that chair.

Do you like bead-board?
The cabinet door fronts have bead-board.

AND.....a fireplace!

More window seats.

Cafe and a croissant anyone??
This is sooooooooo New England-y. I love it.

If you don't play chess....would you attempt it here?

This is what you can do when you have a tight spot for a bathroom.
Custom cabinets that  'bow-out' around the sinks instead of having a deep counter straight across.

Can you believe this is in Jacksonville Florida?
Who Knew?

  1. Sweet heart!!
    You out did yourself. Fabulous house.
    I would love that view.
    Every room is for me. Except that bath sink. Would it be awkward
    if you are short? Brushing your teeth you have to lean over.??
    Every else is beautiful.Florida?

  2. Yes, I do love all of the rooms inside and out! I could definitely live there! Cozy and beautiful ocean that's my kind of home....can you tell I live inland? Only in my dreams I guess.

  3. Renee. You are posting like mad !! Sorry that I've missed a couple.
    Love this house with wonderful views and beautiful decoration.
    I wish that you wouldn't show me these wonderful houses. They put mine to shame. Hehe. XXXX

  4. What!? Be still my heart. JAX- who knew!!?? LOVE the house. Great millwork, love the beadboard, and the kitchen and the bath. Oh just delightful.

    Thank yo\u!!

  5. I am openly weeping at this moment. That would be the ultimate life's luxury, to have a home near the ocean such as that. I've loved the ocean since I was a 7. Shingles since I was 15, bead-board since I was 25, & so on. You always know how to pull @ my heartstrings Renee.
    Hope you are doing something wonderful for Thanksgiving. My wishes for a restful, happy day. Cheers my dear xx

  6. I'm SO in that window seat right now! What a great house. I don't know if I'd be on the porch more or in the kitchen. Delightful! Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. We'll be installing some bead-board in our new kitchen! I love window seats..., in my next home!
    Have a great Thanksgiving!

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
