  15. Maria,

    Thank you for the beautiful home tour. I found you by way of Rhoda at Southern Hospitality’s Friday Feature of your home. We just purchased a new to us cape cod home in the DC area, and your home will serve as inspiration for a new direction for my decorating efforts.

    1. Carollyn, I am so touched by your comment! I am thrilled you found me at at Rhoda, she is an Angel! I was so happy she featured my home on her blog. I would love to see you home, I will go check out your blog too. All my best Maria

  16. What a beautiful home you have Maria. It is so nice when you can build it to your exact specifications and needs. We built ours years ago and the architect did everything wrong! Haha! I don’t think I’ll be building another one anytime soon. But yours makes me yearn for one like it. It is the perfect beachy home. And your decorating style is impeccable.

    1. Mary: You are a sweetie!

      I have built many homes and had problems in the previous ones, but this one I was destined to do it my way and not listen to any one but me and it worked, I got what I wanted. I knew what works and what did not! I built small instead of large and that was very important, to have something manageable. Let me know if you ever want to built again and we can go over ideas. Can’t wait to see you at the Haven.
