Favorite Spaces Series: Living Rooms

I am so glad my blog readers have been enjoying my favorite Coral Gables and Coconut Grove spaces series including my favorite kitchens and favorite pools.  Someone has asked whether or not these beautiful spaces were my listings and the answer is a resounding YES!  I have been so fortunate to have listed so many beautiful properties during my real estate career in Miami.

Today’s series includes some of my favorite living rooms.  Drumroll please:

Coral Rock Detail

Coral Rock Detail

The living room in this Coral Gables home was small but stunning.  Although the home was just a few years old, the owners had created an Old World charm.  The white furniture, sisal rock, beamed ceilings and coral rock accents enhanced every inch of the room.  There are some living rooms you would never want to sit in…this one, you would never want to leave.

 

Coconut Grove Mid Century

Coconut Grove Mid Century

Mid-Century is so au courant. Here is a Coconut Grove ‘50’s home that oozes glamour and sophistication, martinis and the Rat Pack.  No wonder I had multiple offers on this home.

 

Old World in Coral Gables

This 1930’s Mediterranean had one of the largest living rooms I have ever listed.  Too large is not always good, but in this case, the pecky cypress ceiling and the thick plaster walls kept the living room warm and inviting, in spite of its size. Of course, the original art deco fireplace was the explanation point at the end of the sentence! This is truly one of Coral Gables grand living rooms.

 

 

Grove Isle

Grove Isle Penthouse in Coconut Grove

Masculine, sleek, and bold.  With Biscayne Bay as a backdrop at this Grove Isle penthouse condominium, how could you go wrong?

 

Coral Gables

Simple Symmetry

I have included this Coral Gables living room because it shows what can be done on a limited budget in a simple, minimalist way.  It was an ordinary Coral Gables ranch home but the Seller had style and good taste and pulled it all together with panache.  This home sold in 15 days.

If you’d like me to find you the perfect home with the ideal living room, drop me a line! (I just dated myself) You can text, email, tweet, Facebook me or simply call. I’d love to chat!
