How do you turn back the clock on a vintage home that’s been stripped of its retro charm? For Arkansas couple Amy and Andy, who purchased a house built in 1970, they turned to HGTV’s “Fixer to Fabulous” team of Jenny and Dave Marrs.
There couldn’t be a greater contrast between the city of Immokalee and its neighboring communities in Collier County, Florida. While nearly half of Immokalee families live in poverty, nearby Naples is one of the wealthiest communities in the United States. While one well-documented solution to breaking the cycle of poverty is access to high-quality educational opportunities, in Immokalee there are not enough services to meet the need.
The golden days of luxury air travel (the glamorous glory years of Pan Am and the Concorde in the 1950s and 60s) may be long gone, but that doesn’t mean airlines aren’t still offering their flyers lavish amenities.

Historic may not be the first word that comes to mind when you think of Florida homes. Up until the last 80 years, the sunshine state was still virtually an untouched jungle with predominantly dirt roads and little in the way of notable architecture like that found in other southern states such as Georgia and South Carolina. And compared to areas north of the Mason Dixon line like New York and Massachusetts, Florida might as well be considered an uninhabited island. But St. Augustine aside, Florida still has some hidden history tucked away in the palm trees that adds to its coastal character.
Over the years Vetrazzo has enjoyed a successful track record of being featured in many commercial projects, due in large part to its immediate visual appeal but also in that it carries a specific message of being an environmentally friendly product produced in a socially responsible manner. Its versatility makes it suitable to a variety of design styles, especially within the educational, retail, institutional and hospitality sectors.
