Sporadic updates on the renovations of my 1924 Spanish colonial revival house in Coconut Grove, Florida. One less "mcmansion" in the Grove.
love finding your blog - so sorry I didn't get to 'meet' you before my time walking around the biltmore hotel, I'm sure you could have given me plenty of pointers!I see a lot of blue & white tiles. Start searching ebay and also be sure to check out local salvage yards. You'd be surprised what you can find for CHEAP.
Thanks for stopping by. I loved your piece on the Biltmore. I bookmarked your blog and look forward to more architectural adventures. Next time you visit Coral Gables I will show you a few "secret spots" in the Hotel. When the Biltmore first opened guests were offered gondola rides in the Riviera canal. The ride would end at Coco Plum beach. This public beach had Tahitian-like huts on stilts and the concession stand employees dressed in Gaugin inspired sarongs. Sadly that beach was sold to a developer and it is now a gated community of McMansions.
