I’m helping our friend David with the renovation of his condo.  Now David is super handy (actually, he’s a handyman!) so he’s replacing the floors himself, installing new kitchen cabinets, painting the walls etc.  I’ve been tasked with helping him select furniture, colors, accessories etc. David lives by the beach, but isn’t super into the shabby chic beach house vibe.  He prefers a cleaner look with a touch of British Colonial mixed in.  Here is what his pad looks like currently.

Even David would admit – slightly scary!

The new concept.  A TV watching area, a reading nook by the fireplace (replete with colonial armchairs) and a sunny breakfast area.  Super durable furniture for him and his dog with a nice collected comfortable feel.
