SARASOTA, FL, MARCH 5, 2015 – TRACEY RAPISARDI DESIGN, LLC has been selected as a member of the Coastal Living and Southern Living Designer Network, a group of editorially recommended designers for readers of the Time Inc. titles. In late 2014, Coastal Living and Southern Living partnered to launch this brand-credentialed group of interior designers in key markets across the country.

All designers in the network have been vetted by editorial representatives of each magazine.

“Together Coastal Living and Southern Living inspire more than 20 million consumers each month with great interior design,” said Sid Evans, editor-in-chief of Southern Living. “This collaboration will allow designers the opportunity to connect with our consumers and bring the look of the magazines to life.”

“Our new Designer Network further strengthens our ties with the design community and showcases our unique roles as authorities on design to both the trade and consumers,” said Antonia van der Meer, editor-in-chief of Coastal Living.

I look forward to working with both brands on projects that will influence the readers and viewers with style – whether it is a home, a table set for dinner, or items in your beach bag!! It will be a wonderful experience to work closely with Southern Living and Coastal Living in this great adventure.” – Tracey Rapisardi

 

 

 

TRD_TIME_INC_PRESS_RELEASE_7

As an editorially recommended designer for readers of the Time Inc. titles (Southern Living and Coastal Living) we met in Nashville for a conference with brand-credentialed; builders and developers from across the country, sponsors of the Custom Builder Program, as well as the editors of both Southern Living and Coastal Living. What a great time we had and what creative and kind people we met!

 

TRD_TIME_INC_PRESS_RELEASE_5

Southern Living and Coastal Living did such a seamless job in Nashville – all the details were impeccable. Even down to the registration table decorated with Nashville flower arrangement. So cute!

 

TRD_TIME_INC_PRESS_RELEASE_4

Girl’s road trip???… Since we are located in Sarasota, FL, we thought it would be a good idea to make it a girls road trip – so we could have a little extra time to explore Nashville!

aka: shop… eat… and drink ; )

 

TRD_TIME_INC_PRESS_RELEASE_8

A morning in Franklin, TN… Just 20 minutes from Nashville was a little dream town – from the boutiques to the restaurants! Lunch at 55 South was fantastic – and the ambiance was just what you would expect in TN.

Save the best little shop for last… Ice cream… xxoo

 

A Cozy White Christmas

A COZY WHITE CHRISTMAS

Getting ready for a cozy white Christmas in Sarasota Florida. Mandi’s Cottage is like being in a dreamy White Christmas. Baking fluffy mini Christmas cakes and drinking hot cocoas as we wrap gifts and children write to Santa. Oooooh what fun it is getting ready for the Holiday’s. Fluffy Christmas cakes on a cloud of white, topped with snow flakes and silver glitter sprinkles. Enjoying Christmas candy and all kinds of goodies.

Next to the wintery white Christmas Tree are gifts being wrapped with creative thoughts. Then it’s time to sit and get cozy with a blanket and cup of spicy hot cider.  A wonderful way to spend an evening during the Holiday Season. I will be spending my Christmas at Mandi’s Christmas Cottage with family and friends!!

I wish you all a Happy Merry Christmas.

TROPICAL SUMMER

 

TROP_SUMM_BLOG_1

Long beach days in Sarasota Florida – though up North the dog days of Summer are coming to an end. Here on the outer islands of Sarasota, the weather is beautiful – so in designing a beach cottage it is a wonderful inspiration. Nature is all around us to give you the happy lifestyle you want and love. Have a look at this tropical beach cottage.

 

TROP_SUMM_BLOG_2

A cottage kitchen on the outer islands of Sarasota, on the West Coast of Florida. I designed this kitchen with happy colors – island living is what it’s all about. The perfect morning place to gather for a coffee before a day at the beach.

Whether your on the West Coast, East Coast or the Gulf of Mexico in Sarasota, FL – a beach house is always a place to make memories.

A beach house third floor has always been a kids place for the summer to play with brothers, sisters, cousins, friends and beach buddies you just met. I designed the plans for this beach house keeping in mind how important it was to have this 3rd floor! Piling into the beach club of the third floor – oh what memories I have as a kid.

A Bigger bed for the older kids is perfectly positioned with sailboat shelves and an additional cot for sleep overs. How charming are the Sweet Summer Linens?

Summer Beach Cottage

SUMMER BEACH COTTAGE

We’re back!! We have been gone for a while on projects for clients and setting up our design studio and showroom in Sarasota, FL.  HAPPY 1st DAY OF SUMMER!!!

Being the first day of summer, everyone dreams of having a cottage on the beach… or nearby… This project was a vintage cottage that I gave a fresh stylish remodel to without taking away the original charm… HAPPY SUMMER and get ready for tan lines and sandy toes!

Cottage Style Magazine

This Summer Beach Cottage is a recent project of mine that was just featured in Cottage Style Bookazine by Meredith Publications. The project ended up being bigger than anticipated, so I’m going to break it down into 3 blogs!

June is my favorite time on the coast. With all the wild roses blooming everywhere, oh the smell of them in the salt air is heaven.

I brightened up the cottage by painting all the knotty pine walls and ceilings. Happy colors for a happy place on this front door.

Summer time calls for sandy toes and bare feet, so give your colorful flip flops and summer sneakers a rest.

Sit and take a break in this happy place of mixed and matched patterns. Fill your beach pales and pitchers with fresh picked flowers from the seaside garden, and enjoy the smells of summer.

Take a traditional sofa and jazz it up with fresh patterned pillows from Sweet Summer Linens. Most furniture pieces were designed by Tracey Rapisardi Design. To add some cottage charm, I designed the starfish cut out at the top of the stairs… details details details…

Oh my god – my favorite… a hot pink dining room table is the perfect addition to this Beach Cottage.  For a twist, paint your Windsor Bow Back Chairs white to break up the traditional stiffness. The scolloped trim throughout the cottage is original to the house – a must stay!

Mis-matched dishes on open shelving? Now thats true cottage style!

Sweet Cottage Kitchen

I put glass panel doors in the original cabinets, again painted it all white and changed out the hardware and hinges. The glass doors in this adorable cottage kitchen helps to make the room feel bigger. The scollops and corner shelves are again original to the cottage, and add wonderful charm. I added bead-board and butcher block to capture a true cottage feel. Colorful accessories add to the fun.

Summer Limes

Time to make the cocktails with plenty of limes… Sweet summer drinks are on the way! Happy Summer Beach Babies!!!

Stockings hanging by the fire, seashells, pepper berries, seeded eucalyptus and pine boughs make the mantle all natural.

a christmas stocking

Make paper cottages to add some whimsy to it and general store jars full of vintage Christmas bulbs. Create a clothesline and pin your stockings like we did. You can add a little sparkle by covering the clothespins in old fashioned glitter.

The kitchen nook with a bedroom off the kitchen is a true small cottage making space for everything. Charming, charming, charming. Instead of formal cabinetry, I used vintage pieces for the cabinets. Add a fun table and mix up!

Nantucket cove

The quaint harbor of Nantucket. I have done numerous projects here and have a special spot in my heart for it. More on Nantucket to come!

Sweet Summer Style Coquina Cottage Part II of the Main Cottage

This is one of many southern, tropical projects I have finished. I took existing furniture and refurnished it for an up-to-date look. I also had new furniture built for the cottage while still maintaining a vintage cottage look.

This was a three year long project – a one hundred year old cottage on the Gulf of Mexico! It was a gem that needed love and attention. I kept it mainly in its original state accept for redoing the kitchen and the bathrooms. I changed the colors because everything was mint green, both outside and in! There was originally beach sand where the pool is now, which made it the perfect place for a puddle pool. All the cottages surrounding the main cottage are original.

What a place! Come enjoy some of the inside…

Porch Overlooking Pool

Striped floors add fun to this screened-in porch, overlooking the pool. Sweet mermaid light with colorful furniture.

Airy Kitchen

To give it an airy feel, I designed open shelving and added a butcher block island. What a kitchen!

Eat Here

Dinner anyone?!

Porch to relax

Sleeping porch with whimsical art we made on the wall so it would be different and fun. Sleep while the waves hit the beach like a lu-lla-by.

Room to Rest

Master bedroom has a headboard made out of an old theater frame cut in two. Added filling to the middle and covered in a striped fabric and voila! It’s a funky headboard. No one else will have this!

Sit Here

A place to sit, have an iced tea and relax. I used vintage wicker furniture and added new outdoor fabric. We also made some of the pieces.

Bedroom 2

Simple guest bedroom by the beach. This room is facing the ocean – oh, listen to that surf!
