Sometimes reality is better than dreams Peeps…My daughter Stephanie found the most delightful inspiring house online.
Please allow me to introduce you to the beach house that I have fallen head over heals for…
Looks like a beautiful renovation doesn’t it??? That’s because it is! Here’s the house when it was purchased in 2003…it was originally built in 1909 in Marianna Florida and sometime in the 1990’s the house was moved to Inlet Beach Florida! You can read more about the history of this amazing home here~
So Anna’s Veranda is not only a beautifully renovated historical home…it’s on one of the most pristine, breathtaking beaches in the Southeast! Oh my gosh…give me a paper bag, I’m hyperventilating.
We’ve been going to the beautiful beaches along the Emerald Coast almost every year for 24 years and I’ve seen loads of homes…but never one I loved more than this one. My heart belongs to Anna’s Veranda.
In 2003 Anna Hammer, Dan Jaul (and partners) bought and lovingly restored the home…Anna has given me permission to share her beautiful home with you…sit back and enjoy Peeps. And while your enjoying these beautiful photos keep in mind that Anna loves for families to vacation in her home. Weddings, receptions and family reunions have also been hosted here! Picture it Peeps…a beautiful wedding reception here.
Anna and her husband Dan decorated the home themselves. Anna says, “we scoured antique markets all over the Southeast for over a year to furnish the house. I spent over two weeks picking out the paint colors.” Do NOT get me started on these paint colors…
The colors are one of the most amazing aspects of the home…as I have poured over these beautiful photos.(Anna’s photographer is an amazing talent out of the ATL …his name is Tom Meyer.
Anyhoo, as I poured over and over and over these photos, I asked myself…HOW did someone choose such a PERFECT color scheme ?
Here’s what Anna says: “it’s almost monochromatic…the colors are soothing and inviting”…she’s right! But I could never choosen such a beautiful palette…
(I think the wall color in this room (the den/living room) is my favorite of the wall colors.)
So, how did someone choose such an amazing color palette ? Anna’s an artist…turns out Anna’s a genius with color!
I’m not sure which room I love the most but the kitchen is in the top 3..
This dinning room…well it may take the prize. The color of those chairs…Oh my holy cow…I adore the color of those chairs…scrumptious~
The house is just a minute walk to the Emerald Coast’s sugar white beaches~Close enough to have views of the water from certain rooms!
I feel like Stephie hit the jack-pot when she found Anna’s Veranda…the history and beauty of the house, the talent of It’s namesake, Anna and her art, (www.annahammer.com)and lastly the sheer brilliance of Anna’s photographer, Tom Meyer…(www.twmeyer.com)

I hope you’ve enjoyed meeting the beach house that holds my little heart.
