Perfectly Palm Beach

After a bad month or a long winter, the key for rejuvenation is sunshine, warm breezes, bougainvillea, and possibly the color pink which are all perfectly Palm Beach.

Palm Beach was just what I needed after a bad month.

Beauty is everywhere in Palm Beach.

Living so close to Palm Beach is a treat, however; sometimes I just want to go someplace new. Using my babysitter’s favorite expression, that is just “foolishness”. She is so right because Palm Beach is always fabulous. A weekend in Palm Beach with special girlfriends was just what was needed after the year we have all had.

The Colony is exactly what one envisions when thinking of this Florida town.

Perfectly Pam Beach is how I would describe The Colony. The hotel was recently redone by Kemble Interiors. The lobby is PB perfection with its pink De Gournay papered walls. They were customized to include Florida native creatures such as the panther and alligator. The pool is the place to be for entertaining people watching while sipping a frosé. The rooms are old school hotel with small bathrooms so take note of that if it is important.

Before hitting the Kips Bay Show House we had lunch at Sant Ambroeus in the Royal Poinciana Plaza. This restaurant is definitely a see and be seen location with overpriced everything, but it is still a fun way to kick off a weekend in Palm Beach. The Royal Poinciana Plaza is a beautiful outdoor shopping experience with high-end boutiques.

Lucky to have a Kips Bay Show House close to home.

The Show House this year was again in West Palm in a home overlooking the water. My favorite rooms were in the traditional perfectly Palm Beach-style.

Courtney Giles Interiors created this palm-wrapped bedroom. Wicker and soothing colors set the mood.

Upstairs Amy Morris Interiors focused on the color red for her bedroom retreat. Les Indiennes, the fabric line used for the headboard and bedding, is always a favorite of mine.

Love the red ventilated door.

Red continued into the bathroom with the scalloped vanity.

Mally Skok designed “The Sunny Spot”, a pattern-filled nook upstairs outside the afore mentioned bedroom. I was too busy talking with Mally to take good photographs. The walls are covered in her Secret Temple wallpaper. The stool is upholstered in her friend Ferrick Mason’s fabric.

Brittney Bromley’s “Le Jardin des Perroquets”bedroom was also perfectly Palm Beach with the green tea paper De Gournay walls.

These antique chairs brought a touch of old-fashioned scale and sweetness to the space.

Terrible photo but love the butterfly (or bird I can’t remember now) escaping up into the crown molding.

Lush velvet corner sofa in a dusty pink.

Casa Gusto designed the foyer and upstairs landing named “Colonial Hothouse”.

Before leaving town we made a stop to their store. That will be the topic of my next post. Not to be missed when in Palm Beach.

Casa V Interiors can bring a touch of Palm Beach chic to your home.
