I’m blushing…

I’m not going to lie– it took a bit to get on board, but BLUSH is BACK in interiors more than ever! Love the way our showroom displays this feminine trend with and Eloquence king bed and nightstands, Bella Notte bedding, and John Richard crushed velvet chair and lucite framed intaglios. Now, my husband doesn’t have much of an opinion on what I do at the house, but this look might have to be a guest bedroom, ha!

Pops of Pool Blues

Our future neighborhood pool is getting a facelift! I’m loving the crisp blues and whites that really liven up the community pool. Just in time to celebrate July 4th weekend!Botany Bayou

Emerald Coast Magazine

Check out this article I was interviewed for in the July 2019 edition of Emerald Coast Magazine. We discuss window treatments from shutters to custom draperies and how to cost-effectively come up with a plan for your home’s privacy.  The cover photo of the article is from one of my favorite Watercolor, Florida remodels.

Lovelace also has an article about our new Inlet location, Lovelace Lifestyle, opening in the same issue. Susan talks her second location opening as well as how she’s managed to stay in business here on the Emerald Coast for the past 25 years.

Underwater Museum of Art, Florida

I-Found-It

https://umafl.org/

So what is it all about? Well, besides being named as one of Time Magazine’s “World’s Greatest Places” of 2018, The Underwater Museum of Art Florida is a newly created local eco-reef and dive site situated right off Grayton Beach.

“The Underwater Museum of Art is the first permanent underwater sculpture garden in the U.S. Located in the Gulf of Mexico, off of Walton County, Florida, the museum lies at a depth of approximately 60-feet and at a distance of .7-miles from the shore of Grayton Beach State Park. Each year, a juried selection of sculptural works, drawn from artists throughout the world, is installed in the underwater garden. The sculptures quickly attract a wide variety of marine life and, over time, metamorphize into a living reef. This eco-tourism attraction not only entices art lovers and divers from around the country and around the globe, it provides a much-needed habitat for local marine life and fisheries as well as providing marine scientists, wildlife management professionals, ecologists, and students, with an opportunity to study marine life and measure the impact of artificial reef systems on the Gulf ecosystem.”- https://umafl.org/

My husband, Colby and I are honored to have been chosen as a sponsor of one of the 2019 statues that are scheduled to be deployed this summer by my thoughtful mother-in-law, Debra Cannon. She selected a statue that will be placed in our honor this summer and will be added to the 2018 group of statues that inhabit the Gulf of Mexico floor. How cool is that?!?

Check out some pictures of some of my favorite local artists, Justin Gaffrey and Allison Wickey’s works that were selected in 2018 for this project.

Susan Gordon Pottery

My newest obsession is Susan Gordon Pottery— it’s a beautiful handmade pottery line from Birmingham, Alabama that has been featured in Southern Living and Martha Stewart Weddings. The abstract wave bowls are PERFECT for our Lovelace Interiors showroom in Inlet Beach. They blend beautifully with Annieglass for serving and as tabletop accessories. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but here are some of mine:

Check back this summer when they arrive at our Inlet Beach showroom! In the meantime, follow her on Insta:
