Shortly after their marriage, Margaret and Patrick Courtney bought a 1,600-square-foot fixer-upper on the water in Tampa, Florida. After years of hard work, it is finally turning into the home of their dreams. Now, with a baby on the way, they need the help of a designer to get a stylish nursery completed before their due date.
After careful consideration, the Courtneys decide to go with Rhonda Lyons and Susan Lanson of Lincoln Design. The space that was once a guest/furniture catch-all room is now a feast for the eyes, full of light and color. The rug ties together the dark furniture and the palm mural on the wall. This is all enhanced by the circular layout that mirrors the flow of the room and the lighting that can create a constantly changing atmosphere.
