May Coastal Home of the Month

This 1960′s style Palm Beach home is the perfect example on how to bring back that feminine, retro look for the present day. From the trellis wallpaper and palm trees to the grass cloth, this is a traditional beach home that is reminiscent of the good ‘ole days. We love how the home is both glamorous and comfortable.

Designed by Meg Braff, the home was carefully decorated to have a retro vibe but feel fresh and contemporary. In the living room, the first furnishings bought were the club chairs. Using the fabric on the chairs as her inspiration for the color palette, Braff then added the Chelsea armchairs, decorative mirror, scones and a furry pouf in front of the fireplace for a final touch. We really love the idea of starting a room off with a bold fabric and working from there.

Upon walking into the home, you are greeted in the white foyer that features a beautifully designed stair rail to liven up the space and a lovely chandelier with a Chinoiserie design. This really demonstrates how beautiful a neutral space can b

The serene blue and white bedroom has two mirrored night tables on either side of the bed and a comfortable armchair in the corner, perfect for reading a good book.

The coral chandelier in the dining room is the perfect decorative accent for the room. Its curves cleverly match that of the glass table base.  Don’t you love the idea of a white chandelier? Click here to see some from Cottage and Bungalow.
