I think a designer’s home tells you more about them than any client work or show home can. An intimate look into their design soul you might say. This is the home of Holly Shipman on Choctawhatchee Bay, Florida. A beach look with an elegant ease. White and bright with pieces carefully acquired over time, lots of simple little treasures close at hand. Relaxed, comfortable, stylish and with meaning.

To me, this home lacks heart. I find it staged to within an inch of its life, cold and not very lived-in. Disappointing, although beautiful. Mournful, in many respects.

Charming, lovely, inviting, sophisticated. Kudos on a beautiful home.
