I need to snap out of it.

And spend some time right here.
This is a home featured in Florida Design Magazine.

This home is located on Coral Gables, right on Biscayne Bay.

Florida design is often done with a tropical flair, and then out of left field.....

you will find a space in the home that feels very northern.
It might include wood paneling and heavy fabrics.
I guess we all need a dark cozy room

Here is the cozy space.


But this is where I would love to be.
My head is really 'blah' 
and I am feeling empty with nothing very interesting to say.
You may just get pictures for a while until I can find my way back.
I have recovering from swollen glands and bronchitis.
It has knocked me out.

  1. You knock me out! In a good way!I hope you get some great antibiotics and feel better...Snap out of it when you are good and ready...xo Maryanne

  2. we all feel that way one time or another, i hope you can get yourself out of this funk soon. Remember my friend, this is your life and you don't get a second chance, so feel your funk and then get on with your life. It seems as so many people care about you. take care

  3. Oh Renee,
    I'm so sorry that you have been poorly. It can make you feel a little 'down'. Try and put your feet up and have some 'me' time. Easy for me to say and alittle harder for you to do, I guess. Try to be positive, Renee....I'm sure that you will be feeling better soon.
    Fab house, even the boring bit !!!! XXXX

  4. OMG, they do have some fabulous art don't they? And Miami across the water. I think this house was either his or hers before marriage because it sure has an old vibe & a totally different "look" to the office area. FEEL BETTER! I'll come over and take us both to lunch w/very dry martini's.

  5. Feel better soon Renee. I would love to join you in this haven, the art, that ceiling, wow. A place to rejuvenate.

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.
