Palm Beach Decor Tips

Bring in the Tropics

As is the case with any beach or nautical theme, you need to incorporate beach elements to get the classic Palm Beach style. Use decor elements that come naturally to Florida shores like shells and coral, but don’t overdo it. Instead, these should be used as little accent pieces and left at that. Wallpaper can be the focal point of the room too. Tropical elements like palm fronds or lush floral scenes that wouldn’t necessarily work in their natural form, will help you pull off the Palm Beach look. Tropical wallpaper or large prints can be the first layer you use to build the room around. It’s the 1960s again, and you can revel in it!

Weave in Whites

Palm Beach decor all starts with a crisp white backdrop. When you see photographs of people enjoying themselves in Palm Beach, they almost always have white pants and lighter, pastel tops or sun dresses. Use the same design feel for your beach house. White is the main color and should be used in the paint and in major furniture elements. Use side furniture, vibrant accent pillows and rugs to bring color into the room.

Adding a natural wood-type element is a must – even if it is a colored piece! To your Palm Beach inspired-room think bamboo, wicker or rattan. These materials are easy to match with other pieces in the room and go especially well with lacquered pieces. Small side tables or the occasional chair here give major impact to a space and pair nicely with all the other colorful elements.

But, Don’t Forget the Bling

Bright colors and natural elements shouldn’t prevent you from adding a few shimmery pieces to your room! In fact, sparkly accents bring a certain depth to a lively space.
