Come & Knock On My Door: St. Petersburg, FL

One of my favorite things to do is house hunt. No, I don’t mean buy houses wherever I go, but that would be nice. I mean window shopping -literally. I love looking at homes, especially as I visit new places. It’s a great way to see how the locals live (again – literally), it gives me design inspiration and it’s a free activity. It’s kind of like walking into my very own version of HGTV’s Curb Appeal. While my home is a condo in a high rise in Chicago and I can’t necessarily convert the inspiration this give me into reality just yet, I hope you can!

I have done one post about great “doors” in the past (Alexandria, VA) and am going to be making this a regular series on the blog. Next up, giving you some tropical curb appeal inspiration is St. Petersburg, Florida. The homes around downtown St. Pete are all very unique and quite charming. The nice thing about St. Petersburg is that you can house hunt (as I call it) by biking around the city. It gives you lots of time to stop and stare, and if you dare, knock on a door or two – or at least a little time to sing the theme song from Three’s Company.

One of the areas I house hunted in St. Petersburg was Snell Isle. I happened upon it on a bike ride and was thankful I did. It’s a lovely community with beautiful homes, and a very unique asset. Each street is identified by a stone marker, many are animals, some are planters, but they are on every corner. It’s very old school Florida and very adorable. I love vintage touches, and when they add kitsch, to an entire neighborhood, that makes it even better.
