Classic Beach Family Room, Hyphen Interiors, Circa Lighting


Kristy from Hyphen Interiors asked me to do a guest post for her while she is in the process of moving. One of my favorite posts of hers is her Craft Room.  
Kristy suggested the theme... "The Hidden.  A room  in your house you don’t show because it’s not decorated or something you hide… this is just to show that 
no house is perfect."  
Guess what part of our house makes me sort of ashamed?  
Check it out here.  


How pretty is Debbie's family room below?  
Debbie and I were Freshman year room-mates and I have admired her taste every since.
I love the lantern and the library sconces.  
She does a great job of accessorizing her book shelves while still letting them "breathe."
 This is such a comfortable light filled room...
a perfect place to relax with girl friends and sip tea (Debbie always has the best teas).
Notice her wainscoting and custom cut seagrass carpeting.

Also, our home is featured on Circa Lighting's blog here.
...they highlight almost every Circa light in our house! 
I  admire their quality and service.

Thanks so much for visiting.
