Just clever.
Clean and clever.

...And this guy?
Just making sure you're
payin' attention.

I think I love the cozy room above the fish!!! You are too funny :)

Linda at Lime in the Coconut! said...

Yeah Laura the two rooms above the fish are the makeover of the orange room. I kinda like the white fish on the mantel.

I have to say...I don't love fish but have three fish platters prominently displayed in our kitchen. Hmmmmmmmm.

Deborah said...

I like fish, but not well enough to eat one...I was not expecting the fish!!! Thanks for the giggle. **blows kisses** Deborah

hi Linda & thanks for visiting my blog today! I feel right at home in those rooms, I am a beach girl from the Jersey Shore living in Alaska for the past 27 years...

Your tribute to the polo ponies was so moving. What a shame... xoxo

Cote de Texas said...

Blue Muse said...

Creamy, dreamy whites... Ahhhh!! Your little fish friend matches the before room. Did he get a coat of white, too? hehe. You are a crack up.

Hum...it is clever and neat...but for some reason not exactely the sort of house I would dream of. There is something missing for me.

My Castle in Spain said...

I love the white fish on the fireplace - that is really cool! And the huge basket of driftwood. Really neat.

kathi said...

How funny! I didn't notice the fish at first. I do like the white and the round mirror over the fireplace. Not sure about the ferns... I think big shells would look better or maybe some candles...

simpledaisy said...

Not too much of a fan of orange...but it does look really crisp and clean while still being warm and slightly cozy~

Fish...hmmm!!

Laura said...

I am really into ferns these days... a super cheap way to add some lush-ness to any room or porch! Love them on this mantle...

Melissa said...

Gorgeous! It's amazing what a can of paint can do!

Mango Gal said...

I think it looks amazing! I love the mirror above the fireplace and those ferns. So cool!

Chris said...

Clean, clever, and GORGEOUS! LOVED what they did. The paint alone transforms the room. The fish, however....hmmmmm. :)

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

I like it!

Do you remember Molly's reaction to the fish on the mantel at the condo? I had to move it!!!

The tribute to the ponies was wonderful.

Jen Kershner said...

I could just move right into that 2nd picture. I'm relaxed just lookin at it!

Maya said...

Simple and clean in white, love it..., like the orange too though.... The fish, prefer to see fish swim, but then I'm a hippocrate because I love them grilled...

Cheryl said...

I LOVE it....it's very fresh and clean!

Gary Heller said...

Fresh and airy. . .and the fish caught me paying attention.

Liz said...

You know I love white rooms! But then again, anything you do will be gorgeous.

Cheryl said...

Thanks for the comment on the shell mirror! If you'd like one just let me know and I will make it just for you :) I must say, I think shells would work nicely in your home!

Shoozles said...

love looking into your world

sealaura said...

haha! loved that last photo! I was wondering.... then I read that you were keeping us on task! I like the orange, it is different, refreshing for a beachy home. Not sure I could do it, I like the white like Côte de Texas better.

LIBERTY POST EDITOR said...

They tell me I need 3-5 servings of fish per week, so please post more.

anita said...

well linda...i'm feeling the fresher brighter cleaner look myself these days. i like the makeover changes! and i'd add those pottery barn beach pillows from sealauras... :)

Joyce said...

Linda I like the new do of the room. I'm loving all the white so much I want to paint our kitchen and family room white, but don't think our furniture will go with the bright white. Thanks for sharing. xoxo

Renee Finberg said...

xx

Tamara Jansen said...

What a gorgeous makeover!

Sharon said...

lol, thx for the good laugh!!
yes, the white is doing lots for the room, esp with the mirror

vicki archer said...

So what does this mean?? Love the little fishy and ...ok it is a little random....but I love random, xv.

Julie said...

What's wrong with the fish guys? I love fish, especially if is in a coconut sauce. ha ha. Yummy yummy


P.S. your blog is such refreshing. Every time I visit I feel like I'm back to my childhood days in the tropical.

Susan Lang @ Designing Your Dream Home said...

Yep, I was paying attention! What a transformation. The great use of the driftwood pieces caught my eye.

Ginny Piech Street said...

Oooooooh, Youuuuuu.

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

I used to love wild punches of bold color. Now, I love the simplicity of whites and creams and monochromatic schemes. (ooooh that rhymes).
The fish - he's looking at me. Icky. LOL

J.Covington*Design said...

Nemo on salt - very lip smacking French! Yum-meeeeee. Fun room, but felt odd with the wicker. Great ferns.

Free Furniture next week....all the coffee tbale wood you can stand - if I take the winning powerball.

j u s t i m a g i n e said...
