Home Is Where the Heart Is

“HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS.” It’s a common phrase meaning that our homes are a central place in our lives—where we rest our heads, nourish our bodies and make fond memories with loved ones. It’s the epicenter of our worlds, where we start and end each day, and where we keep our most prized possessions. This month, we bring you our Home Issue, which is full of ideas for creating the best environment wherever you call home—whether it’s a cozy apartment, a spacious condo or a modest two-story house. In this issue, we are proud to feature the Inn at Cocoa Beach where guests enjoy a "home away from home" experience. This little gem, notably titled "the Quiet Place" is one of Cocoa Beach's finest hotels featuring uniquely decorated rooms, oceanfront views and great service. With springtime upon us, there’s no better time for a remodel project to brighten

COCOA BEACH WOMAN'S CLUB AND JUICE 'N JAVA CAFE

Turning the Tide through Community Service WOMEN MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN COCOA BEACH COCOA BEACH MAY OFFER A LAID-BACK BEACH LIFE, BUT IT'S ALSO A PLACE WHERE MEMBERS OF THIS VIBRANT COMMUNITY STRIVE TO IMPROVE THE LIVES OF OTHERS. Here are just two examples of people making a difference not only in your community but far beyond its boundaries. COCOA BEACH WOMAN'S CLUB Founded in 1965 with five original members, the Cocoa Beach Woman's Club has a long history of pitching in and making a difference wherever and whenever they can. Considering themselves primarily a service club, the nonprofit is a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs—an international volunteer-service organization—as well as the Florida Federation of Women’s Clubs. The group's main purpose was and still is to help better the community and its members' lives through volunteering. And they didn't waste any time right from the start. Their first charitable enterprise, a hurricane relief effort aptly called "Project Betsy," was organized in response to the epic storm of the same name that rolled through Louisiana  in 1965. The fledgling group gathered and shipped 90  tons of

" S h e r e a l i z e s w h at s h e ' s u p a g a i n st a n d t h at t h e o d d s o f s u c c e s s —at l e ast a n y t i m e s o o n —a r e high, but she refuses to g e t d i s c o u r a g e d a n d sta n d s by t h e m ot to " o n e l i f e at a t i m e " as a r e m i n d e r t h at i t c a n b e d o n e ."

supplies in a three-week period. Other early efforts included spearheading the mobilization of financial resources for the CB Country Club. While much  of their fundraising today goes to high school seniors for college scholarships, some of the other local and national organizations they support are domestic violence prevention, Cocoa Beach High School's Project Graduation, the Space Coast Art Festival, hunger prevention and the Cocoa Beach Library.  Known for their entertaining fundraisers, which include dances, home tours, bingo nights, luncheons and other fun events, they manage to support the numerous social projects deemed important or necessary predominantly through the sale of tickets. One of the biggest or most popular events for promoting ticket sales with the CBWC comes in the form of fashion shows like the one held on Feb. 2. It used to be fancy-dress balls open to the public, but times have changed, just like membership. 12

Washington state, through events like endurance hikes and other local events hoping to bring awareness. It was through Rescue Freedom International that she first joined up with Freedom Hikers. While last year was her first hike with the group, she plans on taking part in many more. It's a difficult problem fueled by a number of seemingly innocuous sources, but one of the ways Jenny says it can be combated is to stop feeding the inferno by not supporting anything that encourages, glamorizes or perpetuates human trafficking. This can be video games, movies, adult entertainment websites and establishments, the use of underage models and  suggestive advertising and more. It's complicated, to say the least. When asked just exactly what or who  a Freedom Fighter is, Jenny says, "Someone who makes a choice to make a difference." She realizes what she's up against and that the odds of success—at least anytime soon—are high, but she refuses to get discouraged and stands by the motto "one life at a time" as a reminder that it can be done.

The Quiet Place THE INN AT COCOA BEACH WAS DESIGNED AROUND THE CONCEPT OF PROVIDING A QUIET, TRANQUIL SPACE FOR WEARY TRAVELERS AND OTHER GUESTS TO ESCAPE AND UNWIND. The owner, Karen Simpler, knew firsthand how important that was. A world traveler who finds herself abroad six weeks out of every year, Karen purchased the Inn at Cocoa Beach in 1987 after leaving a successful career in the restaurant industry back in Delaware. She desired to build a boutique-style hotel, as well as a home for herself. Karen's home is the top two floors of the hotel, and she often welcomes hotel guests for cocktails in her living room. Karen had major renovations in mind, and it wasn't long before  construction began on additional floors, which  were eventually completed in 1989. The results of the two-stage project and the

Inspiring Home Decor Ideas that Are in Step with Yo u r F l o r i d a Lifestyle

#1 CASUAL COASTAL BLUES A palette of soft blue hues complemented with white and oatmeal tones creating a calm, breezy, coastal feeling. For this look, designing a comfortable setting starts with a neutral sofa paired with toss pillows artfully balanced with a swivel chair in blue with white welting. Adding a colorful  weathered credenza and a painted antique trunk for a cocktail table give the setting a relaxed, carefree island feel. Thoughtfully placed accent pieces mimicking elements of the sea create a vision of sand between your toes, while beautiful shell studies on grasscloth and botanical coral reef prints bring the walls to life. Soft room lighting continues the obvious nod to the sea. Finally, tying the room together is a two-tone blue-gray rug.  GET THE LOOK

#2 LUXE LIVING A modern take on classical pieces with sophisticated finishes for a glamorous setting. Anchoring the room is a tufted-velvet  tuxedo-back sofa in bronze featuring brass legs and finished with polished nickel nailheads  partnered with a beige-gray chair  adorned with matching nickel  detail. A contemporary rug that’s stain-resistant provides a lasting element of luxury and durability at your feet. Eye-catching drama is attained by mixing the gold and silver finishes of spiked etageres and matching cocktail table, both with quarried white marble. A gold-finished accent table with an antiqued mirrored top is perfect for adding a sense of sophisticated luxe. Stylish curves are accomplished  through the use  of an Adelaide chest, providing storage with thoughtful details, while accent pieces by businesses such as Oly add interest without  clutter to the room. Beautiful lighting coupled with  upscale greenery contribute  to the inviting atmosphere. GET THE LOOK

#3 WORDLY EXPRESSIONS A take on the eclectic world traveler featuring pieces with a mix of Asian, Moroccan and Indonesian influences. In this example, a neutral sofa accented with soft oatmeal and gray pillows tossed over an inviting nubby organic throw creates a space to relax and enjoy the eclectic curated pieces that give this room character. Sit in the beautiful Japanese emperor’s chair while enjoying the interesting details of this amazing antique Mongolian buffet repurposed as an entertainment credenza. The metal smith’s brass-hammered drum cocktail table adds warm, inviting gold tones to complement the other elements in the room. Small accent pieces such as the Marrakech drum side table made of teak and Moroccan leather ottoman pouf give the room a casual, laid-back vibe. Dressing the walls with mementos from our travels allows us to mix Louis Barr’s Barrels in Rincon on canvas with antique Chinese screens. To complete the look, finish the room off with a jute rug, antique accessories and greenery and florals.  GET THE LOOK
