Sunny Disposition

Sunny Disposition | La Dolce Vita

It has really started to warm up in Houston lately, which of course, has me thinking about summer. Naturally, when I spotted this great house in Florida in the May issue of Canadian House & Home, it completely suited my current mood! Located in Windsor, Florida, a luxury community created by Canadian grocery moguls, the house features Moorish influences and a floor plan that is far from being cookie cutter. The homeowners did not want their home to look like a traditional Florida house, so they enlisted the help of Courtney Whatley and Ashley Waddell of Olivia O’Bryan Design to turn their vision into a reality. In order to fully take advantage of the great vistas and indoor/outdoor lifestyle, the bedrooms are all located on the first floor, while the common areas are located on the second floor. The house is chic and polished, yet it feels effortless and relaxed. This home is a great example of stylish, modern beach living.

{You’ll notice the home is mostly dressed in neutrals with a few unexpected colors, likely drawn from the color of the sunset, used throughout to punctuate each space.}
