Stylish Custom Home in St. Pete

Custom Modern Home in St. Pete

Devonshire Custom Home Builders is a local St. Petersburg and South Tampa builder.  They focus on using local craftsmen to produce a high level of detail.

This particular home in St. Pete struck me as special because of the way they punctuated the modern home with a bright blue color, reminiscent of the local gulf, and still managed to keep it elegant.

And even though I love the chandelier over the stairs (is that Chihuly?), my favorite room is the bathroom:  the winding tile/river rock patterns that dip down to a statement standing tub with clean lines that’s nestled under a window overlooking the water.

Sunset Over Lutz

Lutz Sunset

I just had to share a photo of one of our beautiful Lutz / Land O’ Lakes sunsets.

This photo’s actually a little blurry, since I took it with my cell phone, but it still shows some of the brilliant colors that adorn our evening skies on the west coast of Florida.

Find your own piece of Floridian paradise from which to enjoy the sunsets at Rosemary Sells Tampa.

Australian Angophora House

The Angophora House was designed by Richard Cole Architecture, and it located on the lower North Shore of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

I love the lines of this house:  the curves, the expansive windows.  And the contrast between the white and the wood and the concrete.

But, honestly, my favorite spot is the bathroom, with the rustic rock wall curved over the sleek, modern tub.

Rob Gronkowski Sells His Tampa Mansion

Rob Gronkowski, of the New England Patriots fame, recently sold his 4 bedroom, 7 bathroom, 4,781 square foot waterfront home in Tampa, FL.

Everything from the wood-paneled elevator to the iPhone-controlled surround-sound system to the gulf-side billiards room shouted “party pad.”

And outside, the pool, spa, wet bar, fire pits, and outdoor kitchen took full advantage of the beautiful Florida weather and scenery.

And those amazing sunsets?

They’re one of the many reasons I love Tampa Bay so much!

The Hammock House

Hammock House

The Hammock House in Paraguay is appropriately named.

Although constructed of brick and concrete, it has the sleek lines and soft shape of an intricately woven hammock strung lazily between two trees and beckoning you to come inside and relax.
