Its the end of May which means our time in Florida is drawing to an end- sob! We are headed back to Utah in a few weeks to live closer to family. I’ve had so much fun decorating this home! I wanted to share it in its entirety so I took pictures of each room so I could share a full home tour.
On the outside, the house is white with lots of greenery. We added a bench up front we could enjoy the warm weather outside. You can see lots more photos of my front porch and ideas on doormat layering here.

I think this house used to have a screened in porch that got converted into a long and skinny entry. To be honest, this is the one spot in the house that I’ve never really considered “finished.” But its worked well enough (especially since it was the best place to store our bikes).
I made this hairpin bench when we first moved in and its held up nicely and is the perfect place to put on shoes. The entry ladder that I created needs to be glued- I should have done that originally, but its worked nicely even though it needs reinforcing.
At the end of the entry is my husband’s desk. Yes, he uses a pink chair because he is a good sport. He has the prettiest view of palm trees, so don’t feel too bad for him ;). You can see a lot more photos of our entry and a DIY on that office chair here.
From the entry, you take one step up and you’re in the great room. To the right is our kitchen. This is the biggest and nicest kitchen I’ve ever had in my life! Its been a treat to be able to use it and I’ll miss the big island!
The kitchen gets beautiful sunlight and really where we hang out for meals and when people are over. We aren’t use to such a big space and probably use less than half of the cabinet space!
If I was here longer, I would have loved to add peel and stick wallpaper as a backsplash (since we’re renting). And maybe a Roman shade over the window. Overall, I love the kitchen- it is light and bright, just how I like my home!
The main living area is shaped like an “L” with the dining room directly in front of the kitchen. The dining room with those pink chairs is one of my favorite spaces! You can see lots more photos of the dining room and sources here.
That rug is Derek (my dog’s) favorite space to sleep. My desk is in the corner and that’s where I’ve spent so many hours here. In the top left corner, we have the flower credenza that houses all of Don’s toys (you can see a garbage truck peeking out).
We searched hard for a rental with white walls so I could add all of the color I wanted. It’s been nice to have a blank canvas to paint on :).
Even though the house was beautiful and move-in ready, we did add curtains for privacy at night. We made air conditioning covers to hide the ugly wall units. Now they’re a nice place for plants!
If the dining room is one of my favorite spaces, the living room is my very favorite! I finally made my dream of owning a pink sofa a reality in this home! You can see lots more photos of the living room and all sources here.
For me, the living room has the perfect combination of color, texture, and pattern. It is light and bright but still interesting. This is really where I got to mix my signature style with some Florida coastal elements.
In the top right corner you can see a doorway with a curtain over it. That is a deadend hallway where we store the landlord’s art he left behind. Do you remember the before photos of this space?! And now I love it. The flower chair! The rainbow cabinet! The gallery wall! It made me so happy.
We have two bathrooms. The smaller one is off the living room and the larger one is off the bedrooms. This is the first time in my marriage that I’ve had two bathrooms so it’s been pretty nice! They both have marble tiled walls and white vanities.
My three year old’s room is the one space that we set-up right when we arrived and it hasn’t changed much. I was going for a Florida theme- with the sea removable wallpaper and the sailboat. You can see lots more photos of Don’s room and sources here.
This is probably the most traditional space in this house, and I love it. It is comfy and a fun place for my son. Note, most of the time the daybed is actually facing the wall so my son doesn’t fall out while sleeping 🙂
We read stories at that rocking chair before his nap and his bedtime. Its gotten a lot of use! His last room still had a crib so it’ll be interesting to see how we transition his next bedroom as he continues to grow.
I’m only going to do a few sneak photos of the master bedroom since I’ve recently shared a few full posts on this room. Forever, this room was neglected, but we’re leaving with it fully done and loved. It ended with a lot of pink and flowers, so you know I was happy with the design 😉
In the backyard, we have a patio that we redid. Even though we’re renting, I asked the landlord if I could tile and paint this space. He said yes and I had a blast making this my dream poolside retreat. I was going for a Palm Beach vibe and love it! You can see lots more photos of the patio and all sources here.
Alright! That is the full walk through of this home tour. I’d love to hear your favorite room in the comments! Mine is probably the living room with the dining room and patio tied for second. I hope it was fun to see a how my whole home flows and works together. Have a great week!

You did a wonderful job with making this place look great. Best of luck on your move back. Hopefully it will be uneventful for you.

The home is so fun! Love all the colors, beautifully decorated!
So beautiful! I can’t believe that is a rental!
