Mary Beth and Josh Tatum bought a lot on scenic Choctawhatchee Bay in Miramar Beach, Florida, after living in a concrete masonry teardown for years. They took the opportunity to build and design a new home, relying on Houzz for design ideas and inspiration. “I used Houzz to home in on my particular design aesthetic,” Mary Beth says. “I was then able to further streamline and categorize my thoughts through the ideabooks.”
Her design inspiration started in the kitchen. “My favorite item in the home is our La Cornue French range,” she says. “We purchased this before we began construction. Our entire first floor was designed around this piece.” The interior features a palette of rich grays, cool blues and silver inspired by the range.
