Real Homes of Jupiter: November 2018


November means the official start of the Holiday season and we couldn’t be more excited! Cooler weather, fall colors, Thanksgiving festivities, and Black Friday sales are among the many things we love about this month.

But the best part about November (in our humble opinion, disclosure we are also a real estate, design and renovation company) is the decking of the halls with festive decor. It’s the time when the whole house becomes a place of festivity, whether it’s autumn and harvest accents for Thanksgiving or the transition to a winter wonderland for the upcoming holiday season. We love how even the smallest of holiday additions to your decor can bring out that WOW factor in your home. But you don’t always need to wait for the holidays to roll around to dress up your home and give it all those vibey feels.

This month’s RHoJ home is the perfect example of year round vibes.

November’s #RHoJ features one of our favorite Jupiter mompreneurs, Katrina Aronson and her family home in the Abacoa area. Their home is nothing short of AMAZING. (Literally we left her photoshoot and ran straight to Home Goods.)


Meet the Aronsons

One cup of coffee with Katrina Aronson will leave you feeling inspired. Katrina is effortlessly chic, whether it be her on point “choppy lob” haircut or her perfectly curated assemblage of home decor, In short, Katrina is all things trendy.

MLRE had the opportunity to sit down with Katrina and discuss everything from her family and career in fashion, to her inspiration for her Abacoa area home.

KA: “Coming from the fashion world, design and fashion are very much in the same family. You are creating a visual representation of who you are.”

“Katrina’s home is a seamless extension of her eye for fashion and her keen sense of practical versus trendy. Her open kitchen and dining spaces, for example, are every mom’s dream; functional eat-in kitchen paired with an effortlessly elegant formal dining space.”
— Holly Meyer Lucas | President, Meyer Lucas Real Estate, Design & Renovations

1. What inspires your home decor?

2. What's your favorite space in your home?

3. What's your favorite piece and where did you get it?

4. Which Instagram accounts are you currently loving?

1. What inspired your home decor? 

“I think of each room as an outfit. I find one piece, and build all around it. I take my time, and sometimes that means a lot longer than I would like. But, when I am inspired, it is all systems go. Sometimes it is photo I see or a house I visit, but usually it is just an idea that pops into my head and I work backwards to find the visuals I need. 

I do have a deep love affair with Spanish influences, whether it is tiles or archways, so I try to sneak those in where I can. 

Minimalism is my personal love language. If I am not completely sure of something, I do nothing at all. 

Fashion is really not that different from home decor. You like what you like, and it is all about exuding who you are. I have always been drawn to a bit more of a masculine overtone with feminine touches, whether it is clothes or my living room. 

I love pillows and throws to be my trendy pieces because those are the easiest things (and least expensive) to change. “

2. What is your favorite space in your home?

I love my kitchen and my living room. I think the kitchen is the most important room in the house for obvious reasons. I am a mom, and I spend 95% of my life in the kitchen. I also love relaxing in the living room, which I don't do often enough. “

3. What's your favorite piece in your home and where did you get it?

“If I had to pick, it would be my custom built dining room table by Maurice's Furnishings in Jupiter. It is a very classic piece that we will have forever.”

4. Which Instagram accounts are you currently loving?

“ I like finding local home designers the most, or bloggers I follow that also dabble in design. I think I feel connected to them so it is more fun to see what they have going on. The ones that pop up first in my feed are Shira Caplan, Krista + Home, Houzz, Luxe Interiors + Design to name a few.”

Fashion is really not that different from home decor. You like what you like, and it is all about exuding who you are.

“Having a great kitchen-to-dining room flow was something critically important to Val and Anthony during their house hunting process with their Realtor, Holly Meyer Lucas.

They ended up falling in love with a townhome in Jupiter with a big wall between the kitchen and dining room, so they decided to create a pass-through window/countertop between the two spaces. The result is fabulous and completely nailed the vibe they were going for….”

Anyone who follows her Instagram account knows that Jessica is all things chic, cool, and trend-setting.  Her home decor choices are no different than her artistry and talent behind the lens - her use of chic décor, mid-century mod with natural lights and nature-inspired accents seem effortless but give us major interior-inspo.

Meet the Bordners

Jessica Bordner exudes all things "charm" and her home is no different. It is impossible not to immediately feel at ease with Jessica, whether she is photographing the biggest day of your life or inviting you into her adorable home.

MLRE had the opportunity to chat with Jessica about life, love, and design.  "My husband, Michael and I have been married for just over 6 years. We share a passion for traveling, architecture, and food. When we met, Michael was a K9 handler in the Navy and living in Japan. I visited him a few times per year while I balanced my career as a photographer back home. He is now a firefighter in Palm Beach County and we live in our dream home in Tequesta, Florida with our fur child, Avery Jade."

“I absolutely love how the design elements in Jessica’s home seem so effortless.  It is difficult to achieve that mid century minimalist look without over doing it.  Jessica nailed it.”
— Holly Meyer Lucas,  President   Meyer Lucas Real Estate

1. What inspires your home decor?

2. What's your favorite space in your home?

3. What's your favorite piece?

4. And where did you get it so we can copy you?

1. What inspired your home decor? 

"We get a lot of our home inspiration from Palm Springs, California - nature inspired mid-century vibes, cozy feels, and raw material accents." 

Jessica's home has the perfect balance of rich textiles, bold pieces, and nature-inspired accents.  It is so vibey and we just absolutely love it; the wood, the wicker, and the natural greenery placed perfectly next to eye-catching metallic statement pieces, sunburst mirrors, vivid patterns and clean lines.

Jessica pairs modern and whimsical and proves that earth tones never go out of style. 

2. What is your favorite space in your home?

"I think my favorite room has to be our outdoor living space. It was one of the features of the home that we fell in love with first. We love to host parties and utilize the outdoors during most of the year here in Florida. We would much rather dine al fresco when we can."

[To save you a trip to the google machine (don't worry, we didn't know either) -- "Al Fresco" is a phrase borrowed from Italian for "in the cool air" or "to dine outside".  Jessica is such a cultural attache, we can't even.]

We love to host parties and utilize the outdoors throughout the year here in Florida. We would much rather dine al fresco when we can.
— Jessica Bordner on her favorite space in her home.

3. What's your favorite piece in your home?

"Hard Choice!!!!  We love our wooden dresser in the guest room.  The pop of white mixed with that mid century raw wood look works for that space and I love it.   I also love the farm table on our patio that my husband actually built himself."

4. And where did you get it so we can copy you?

I got the dresser at West Elm!  The farm table is courtesy of Michael.
