Houzz TV: Animals, Love and Color on a Florida Farm

“I learned a long time ago that I have to make whatever space that I’m in my own,” Gany Lalo Bernal says. “It has to say something about who I am.” That philosophy was paired with Gany’s lifelong dream of living on a farm. When she came across a blog post nine years ago about a woman who had moved from the city to a farm in the country, making jam preserves from fruit from the garden and enjoying fresh eggs from chickens she raised, Gany admired the woman’s bravery in making such a change in her life. “But here I was, 34 years old with four kids and going through a difficult divorce,” she says. “I pried out the dreamy post and saved it, hoping that one day I too will have a beautiful story.”

I love the Neo-bohemian style (I call it, and have it), so interesting and colorful. The people have made it their home, not a home using someone else's rules. And the result is lots of lively personality, and is absolutely wonderful.

we are now living on our second farm - we have alpacas as our pets instead of selling them - you will always find a way to do what you love if you have the courage to trust that you can do it - I like this family style because it expresses who they are and not copying some design magazine ideas

The décor of this family's home is not something I would have in my own house. But it is so vibrant and alive, you just have to admire how it all comes together. The colors, history and animals all meld together to make something that says we are enjoying life to its fullest. Bravo!

Love the place...love the horses...love the article. Of course, before I could read it, I had to browse through to see if you included photos of the horses and other animals -- I was delighted to see not only photos, but their names! Overall, this is my kind of place. Our animals -- horses, dogs, chickens and cat -- are all members of our family, and our newly completed house is designed to include them, with views of the horses from almost every window and an interior suited to antique furniture, books, and frequent muddy, furry feet. This is the life!

This is one beautiful place. Some people might say the decorations are too busy, but different strokes for different folks I believe. To me this bright enlivening colourful environment can only lift one's mood and keep you on a "high".

Well lookee here. This isn't cookie cutter recipe following. These are people who have not only money and natural light (which are sort of par for the int design feature), but taste and the time to express it as well. About the only thing I'd raise my eyebrows at is the red porch. I can't handle red walls anymore. They're *still* everywhere in the West Outer Mongolia hinterlands where I live. Yuck. Everything else is pretty savvy.

at the beginning of the story, I was thinking, "oh no way, this is too much...but as I kept going, it really grew on me! I have to agree with other comments...it's a stunning yet simply real farmhouse. The only thing I would change would be using saltillo tile throughout the entire ground level instead of the wood-look tile. but that's just my preference after living in the SW for many years. thank you for sharing your home with us!

@arizonasnoopy Inside the rack underneath the top spine there are two angled holes called pocket holes, and one more at the bottom inside of each wing. This hole style does two important things: keeps the mounting holes hidden and avoids ugly brackets for class and creates a strong sharktooth effect at each connection point. Send me your email address and I'll see if I can get you some photos of how it was done. ucreativething@gmail

@arizonasnoopy If you look closely you can see an interior hole at the rear bottom point. There is one on each side and a couple at the top. Any homeowner with a drill can join this way. A company called Kreg Jig makes an inexpensive shortcut tool. Get one at Lowes, Home Depot or online. Just follow the directions and watch a video or two...you'll be an expert in no time. In this case the wall was panelled an thus allowed for strong mounting wherever we wanted. If your substraight is not as tough, such as sheetrock, you'll have to find studs or pre-mount a board to mount the rack to. Remember, its holding a big 'ol saddle so you want integrity. In fact, you can see in the photo that the rack pieces themselves (mitered to 30° I think) were joined in the same manner. They our simple and easy, but strong...will support just about anything you throw at them. We since added a thin bottom to each rack...Gany realized she would like to store dressage helmets inside. Let me know if you have any more Qs!

@arizonasnoopy We always aim to make things one-of-a-kind and creative, but at times also like to be able to design for speed. That let's us make awesome stuff for folks that don't have a lot...we think everyone should love where they live, rich and poor. We believe happiness in ones environment promotes life contentment and allows people to identify and focus on the things that really matter in life, rather than feeling the need to run out and buy a future garage sale object every time they are feeling bad. You would be amazed at what can be done with that tool and how satisfying it is to have an idea and be able to design and create it with your own two hands (although I never want to discourage anyone from asking me to do it :-) I have a good relationship with @kregjig but sometimes I wonder if they even realize what can be accomplished by even the novice with their little jig. I have so many outside-the-box, simple design and fabrication tips to share with folks, told from an artsy creative point of view, that I don't see in online videos...but am too busy partying with @bluestallionfarm!

The lighting in the video made the place look cluttered, disjointed and garish, but the natural lighting in the still photos flattered the home, and offered cohesion. While I admire the craftsmanship of the custom plywood shelving throughout, I thought it was far too much of a good thing. So much hard, angular geometry thrown in with a multi-culti stew of knick-knacks, color combinations and furniture styles. As a huge fan of eclectic decorating, Abigail Ahern and British whimsy, this place, while clearly demonstrating a full and soulful lifestyle, lacked an artist's eye for restraint, tension, scale, proportion, negative space and the like. I'm thankful at the end, however, to witness such a residence. Keep 'em coming.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful slice of paradise - I don't see this house as being "decorated" - I see it as being filled with pieces of love and I think the homeowner is quite an artist - unique - following her own style and passions. THE whole place is a work of art in process -from the barn - animal pets - collections of beautiful colored glass - it's all a living piece of art. AND you can tell it's a labor of love!

Everything
about this home speaks volumes about Gany herself & the love & warmth
of her family life. There is such a vast array of creative design ideas incorporated
into not only very original & useful organizational tools but with the added
benefit of the beautiful character of self-expression. First my eyes immediately
took me to the light green tinted 40’s style refrigerator & I believe dishwasher.
They reminded me of the style my mother had & I think it was in the forties
or early fifties I love the open shelving in the kitchen to display the beauty
of her collections and have done the same in my own. I was a bit hesitant at
first but now am very pleased with the result & have received complements
on the look. There are too many clever ideas to name them all but the dog bed
hidden under the bed & the kitty litter box are just two that I found
unique. The old barns doors that slide & are pained the rustic deeper blue
tone placed behind the bed in her bedroom are to me the stand out feature that
I really love. I thoroughly enjoyed this 8 minute video that took me out of my
world and into hers.

This is the greatest house I've ever seen. I wish I had the courage to do this to my own place.

So glad you kept the stone fireplace-I think it is a wonderful focal point. And - I love colorful houses (we have one, too)! Thanks for sharing.

I love the sliding shutters in the bedroom. I just had an inspiration for a sliding shutter in a tiny house that I would like to build someday. Lovely, peaceful home!

Time and Space Design

Your home is the definition of a home. Some of the features are so beautifully created the barn doors behind your master bed. The mastiff's bed. I was suprized to see a cat box on a farm, the idea and design is great. Tack room is a wonderful use of space. Thank You for sharing your home.

Has anyone tried to clean/replace section of floor and then paint hardwood. Damaged wood floors in entry of our home from a leak behind the refrigerator. We want to patch and replace but can't find this wood anymore. This floor connects to tile floor in kitchen and we don't have enough tile to patch. Need advice for affordable fix. Replacing all the wood floors throughout entry to rest of house is continuous flooring at 1500 sq ft

Beautiful home! Color and animals just bring joy to my heart and I’d love to live surrounded by both, like this family.

My husband and I have our dream farm outside of Nashville. Our animal mix is slightly different (17 horses, 4 cats, 3 parrots, 2 mini donkeys) but we love it. Our home was custom built by the seller and was what we wanted, so we didn’t have to do the amount of renovations you did. I LOVE your tack room! If we had time, I would create it for our boarders. We are all very neat but the creativity in yours is admirable!

Since the return of modern austerity, I thought I was the lone ranger regarding supposed "clutter and/or busyness" until I saw YOUR amazing home! It reflects your life and your joy. I hope you keep evolving, reflecting and continuing your incredible spirit. Afterall, a home should take forever and never be "finished".
