Sporadic updates on the renovations of my 1924 Spanish colonial revival house in Coconut Grove, Florida. One less "mcmansion" in the Grove. Mostly not great quality iPhone photos. Ghastly editing too.

A picture is worth a thousand words
This is the photo my contractor sent me.
I was discussing pool ideas with the contractor. . so he sent me the above photo of what he thought I might have in mind--- thankfully I had houzz.com to help me find exactly what I have been trying to describe. A picture is always worth a thousand words..... I found two examples (see below) of classic Mediterranean pool & landscape designs that I think we can scale to fit within our budget. I love the traditional look of stone and grass integrated to seamlessly connect the house to the pool area
