Ikea perfection; love the lucite chairs and round table – a comfortable and clutter-free space.

Master bedroom; Ikea bed, dresser, table, lamps, and curtains…hand made quilt.

Master bath; OK, not loving the gold, but a silly shower curtain (from Fab) will have to do for now.

Second bedroom; Ikea full and twin beds…more hand made quilts.

Second bath with walk-in shower…good bye floral wallpaper.

The kitchen; we breathed life and light into the space with tin back-splash, Ken-inspired Pool Blue cabinets, white uppers, and no ruffle curtains….great view of the pool.

The Lanai and Pool deck; Target table and chairs. Love the ceiling fans – hey, this is Florida…it’s steamy!

And all the details to add color and fun on a budget…
