With the official start of summer right around the corner, we know many people are gearing up their beach homes for the summer, so today we’re continuing our home tour series with a look at a home that celebrates the luxury of beachfront living. Let’s take a trip to a vibrant and feminine apartment in Palm Beach, Fla., styled in the fashion of an upscale tropical cabana.
The white walls and trim in this living room perpetuate the glow from the coastal environment, letting the lively coral patterned furnishings stand out. Look at how the the white-painted étagère separates the window seating area from the more formal living area without impeding the flow of light or view. The heirloom breakfront and end table help anchor the space with earthy wood elements.
The smaller dining room space harnesses the power of reflection to open and expand the area, including a more contemporary mirrored buffet and a stunning antique gilt mirror.
We love how the coral print takes on a slight animal-print appearance without actually reflecting a leopard print. It creates a nice contrast with the lacquered secretary piece, which keeps everything neatly tucked away so the space remains tidy and uncluttered. We also like how the seating area of this office space is brimming with cozy, comfortable textiles and pillows.
White walls and neutral bedding keep the colorful floral fabric on the drapes, chair and wall covering in this bedroom fresh and light. One can easily nap, dream and retreat here while enjoying cool ocean breezes.
