Red Rooms, Red Interiors, Red Homes


The Holidays are upon us all.

Red is part of it all.


Speaking of which is Red Miles !!


Red Miles and Me.
The darling of all Darlings !!!



Red rooms are cozy and inviting...
I don't care what people say about red being a color that agitates.
No way !!
It's pure love , warmth and coziness.


Dining here with the proper lighting would be simply sublime.





Red accents are so special.
If you want to make a statement...
And make something stand out...
PAINT IT RED.



This room blows my mind.
Look at all the different colors and patterns and yet
IT WORKS SO WELL !
I love it !


Red houses thrill me.
It must have gotten into my veins in New England.
Imagining this structure as a studio or a guest house.
( STUDIO/HIDE-AWAY)



Again I rest my case....
COZY OR WHAT ??

What are your thoughts on red ??

Shipping Container Homes - So FABulous



Just pick a dream spot.
Buy the land and put a container home up.


Just imagine living here for a season or two !!!!


I have posted some examples of
shipping container homes here in this post !


The possibilities are actually limitless.



I do love this with the great gardens and quaintness of it all.
Is it possible for a container home to be quaint ???




This home is in Maine and built by an Architect
that could have built any thing that he wished.



I am just sayin'
find some land and build your get away !
Each container is 1500.00 USD.


I mean seriously,
is this not fabulous ?

"Shipping container homes are the hallmarks of architectural innovation. ISBUs (Intermodal Steel Building Units) are reused as structures for any place and for any purpose. Be it a home, office, or a palace, shipping containers are inexpensive and durable buildings for residential, commercial and even industrial use.​Storage containers can stand superior in the face of building codes.Since they are originally built for transport, they can be easily moved when they need to be. They can withstand practically any extreme weather, such as hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes" (TAYNR).


I have wanted to build one of these homes for YEARS.
Someday I will !!!!!

What is your opinion after this post ???

I can just see and hear him playing the piano and singing here.



He so nostalgic.

You really need to.

Right in the middle of the city MF has this

Upgrade Your Life...I Plan On It



Finally.
The end is near for my life in Maine.
I am going home to Boca Raton.
I can't wait.
I will never complain again about the heat or the people.
I have been in Maine for almost 5 years and have made NO real friends !!!

New England is a closed society.
I am referred to as a person from 
'AWAY'.
That's what they call all people who weren't born here.
(rude)


I am going back to where I do have life long friends........
It's their (Maine Natives) loss as far as I am concerned.

The only good thing about Maine for me has been these years I have spent with my mother.
They have been amazing.



I look at these images and wonder.............


If I will feel at home immediately.
Maine has done strange things to me.
I am less confident.
Less sure of myself.
Not fitting in for a long period of time will do that to you.
......I think.


The beaches and the ocean are what I dream of.


This is the entrance to my new home in Boca Raton.


This image is on one side of the entrance.
Notice how GREEN it is ???
And the pond is NOT FROZEN.



This is one of the pools where you will find me more often than not.
A swim any day of the year in the afternoon.
I CAN'T WAIT.

Take me home !!!!!!!!!!!


Have You Ever Been Through Something Like This ?

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.

Private Paradise
