Seth & Rebecca's El Parrot-Iso Island Home

House Call

Name: Seth & Rebecca
Location: Tampa Bay, Florida

We recently purchased this vanilla 1960's house on an island on Tampa Bay. The house didn't have much going for it except the pool, landscaping and some beadboard. My wife is an interior designer for IKEA and I collect and sell 20th Century furniture. We hoped we could make this work.

After painting the house to get some color, we started to decorate. We still have to finish the kitchen — it's Home Depot contractor grade, so we will probably paint it and change the backsplash. Our favorite spot is our bar — El Parrot-Iso, named for the wild parrots that fly around our pool. We spent a lot of time in the Caribbean , so we tried to give it the funky charm of the beach bars we frequented.

Thanks Seth & Rebecca!
