Our friends found a lovely NEW home in LaBelle that was completely furnished and it was beautifully decorated. Everything was perfectly coordinated, including the pictures on the walls. Even the slats in the headboards matched the backs of the chairs in the kitchen. It was not overdone and it was really high quality furniture that you could add to in order to bring in your own personal sense of style. The only things our friends had to get was dishes, sheets, etc. You will have lots of choices. Good luck. You will love it here.
This is good information for me. I hope we find a house we love but I sincerely want to take my time and get acqainted with the lifesystle. I really like the idea of finding a fully furnished home and only having to buy the small stuff, like dishes, etc. And I'm confident we'll love TV - too many people have said how much they love it. My only wish is I wish we could've done it several years ago, but we had parents here to take care of. Hope to meet you!!

I am also interested in a decorating group! I understand that there is a club in TV, but it sounded as if it was quite large.

When we first joined the forums, there was a great deal of decorating info. available on the forums. Of course at that time people were still doing custom build, so the comments reflected design and decor more frequently than what we now see posted.

I would love the ADMINISTRATORS to start a "Decorating" forum. I know it would be well received. ****HINT****HINT****

Gracie,

I am very interested! I need suggestions and inspiration. Maybe we can rotate meeting monthly or so at our homes with an occasional "decor" shopping trip?

I think that sounds so wonderful. May would be a good time for me to begin. Hope that would be o.k. with those interested.

I am willing to do the set up ..respond to me via email or call 352-633-3339 Lauren

I would love to join this group for decorating tips. We started from scratch and the house does not flow. I know the solution is an easy fix, but finding the right accessories is daunting.

I would also love to participate. We will be arriving in the Villages on June 10.i will be following this thread until then. Having lived in Mexico for seven years, I am kinda out of touch with decorating US style.
