It’s why you came here

This house is an offering from one of my favorite builders and expectations were high. There were a lot of interesting elements and texture, so it mostly satisfied me.

The lighting was good, but not stellar. The ball “thing” in the upper left was very cool in person. Almost impossible┬áto get a good picture of, though. And of course, who doesn’t love a good ball? The lamp in the lower right wants to be my lover, but I had to turn it down. I found that lamp in a catalog, but it was over $500! Not enough milk money for that.

I included the candles because they’re lamp-adjacent. And finally, this bizarre exaggeration of something…img_5896This falls under the category of If It’s Not Broken, Don’t Fix It. It’s drama, but not in a good way, so I’m surprised to see this. Trying too hard.

I’m over 6′, so the bed would probably be uncomfortable. I don’t want my feet kicking the end of the bed all night, but I love furniture that curves at the edges like that.

My favorite detail is the built in TV console. There was almost nothing on it!! I loved that. You know, the less is more thing. This house has fantastic texture so the eye wants to see more. Good job.

This mirror makes me happy. It’s got good texture and dimension.

There was a farm sink. I just don’t know what to say anymore about these things. Please don’t.


So this is what 500k gets you in south Hillsborough County. Go. Buy. Move.
