Amanda, I just love Florida. I know part of it is because I associate it with vacationing so naturally it evokes feelings of relaxation and rest. (This is our eighth year.) But there is something about Florida that goes beyond that - it has a culture of it's own. A vibe. I think it's the palm trees and all the pastel.

Here are my picks this week.... Florida inspired:

#1. Florida design. This Florida pool in Vero beach is how I want our backyard to feel come summertime.


#2. Florida art.... A good excuse to bring in a Flamingo or two.


#3. Florida Interiors. Fabulous beach house using Florida colour scheme.
