Summer Style – Chapter 1: Palm Beach

 

I’m not very fond of Summer. I burn easily, hate the heat and mugginess, and feel the urge to take 20 showers a day. HOWEVER, Summer brings us the opportunity to make use of one of the coolest styles in Interior Design: Palm Beach.

But what is Palm Beach style? It is a bright and bold mix of tropical, preppy and Hollywood Regency.  Key ingredients infused in Palm Beach style include:
