Take Me Away - Palm Beach Style

Oh how I wish I were jetting off to Palm Beach this winter. Am I the only one with the winter blahs..?? It's been a long one up here in Boston. I'll mentally escape today instead. Let's break it down shall we?
The quintessential Palm Beach style is filled with lots of cheery details..

great colors like:
Coral - real and color
vintage prints
classic glamour
shell motifs

images: Lindsey Coral Harper, House and Garden scan via Coco and Kelley, Architectural Digest, Tory Burch, Moodboard, Apartment Therapy, Meg Braff, Architectural Digest.

for fashion I think of:
Jackie O
Lily Pulitzer
Babe Paley
Oversized Shades
vintage prints
colorful head scarfs
Jack Rogers
cropped pants
chunky jewels
and of course color, color, color

At this point Palm Beach sounds awesome. Or just about anywhere warm. Expecting snow tonight in a state where we often don't see any during the winter. This is about the 8th one this year. Yay for warm.

What a beautiful post! I'm down here in WEST Palm Beach :-) and so excited for the Red Cross Designer Showhouse tonight. I've never been to one- wonder if they will let me take pictures? You totally nailed the style down here.

Love your blog!

I can't find photos online anywhere but I'm dying to post some...the Leigh Settee in amazing pink, a cabinet with blue interior...the perfect bar cart...totally in sync with your post today. Love it! And I'm in Minneapolis and this is the longest winter EVER! I hear you :) Make it end!! ~ Jen

Love the sherbert palate of this style and how it is so avertly feminine. That yellow floral sofa room makes me smile everytime- love. Also totally coveting those fan chairs- would love a pair!

Oh man, you need a vacation badly. No way to swing it?? Start chanting Calgon take me away, maybe it will work.
