Melissa's Gulf of Mexico Bay Getaway

Name: Melissa
Location: Glen Cove on the Bay — Kenmah, Texas

We returned to our Texas roots after living in China for two years. We purchased our very first home and three weeks after moving in, Hurricane Ike poured over three feet of water into the house! We used it an an opportunity to move a few walls and make it more suitable to our needs.

My husband and I both came from the fashion industry where he still works today. I have a passion for interior decorating! Although it's not what I do for a living, I could spend hours tearing inspiration pages from magazines and surfing design blogs. It's just the two of us and our three dogs and our home just makes me smile!

Thanks, Melissa!
