Palm Beach Pink, Part III

As you know, I have been obsessed with pink Palm Beach homes lately, and this Palm Beach vacation home, featured in the June issue of Traditional Home, is the cherry on my sundae. Owned by interior designer Robin Weiss and her husband Bill, Traditional Home describes Robin’s decorative scheme as mimicking “the kind of tropical drink you might order at a swim-up bar…”

The Bermuda -style exterior is bathed in "Ballet Slippers" by Benjamin Moore.

Robin, who operates a design firm named Cabin Fever in Jackson Hole, WY, enjoyed a departure from Wyoming’s more rustic d├ęcor, and embraced a truly tropical, Florida palette.  All images and captions below are courtesy of Traditional Home.
“I wouldn’t be able to get away with using bright pink in Jackson Hole,” says Robin. “This house allowed me to do whatever my imagination told me to. Florida homes are fun, bright, and cheerful. There is a certain freedom and a different protocol with a second home. I took advantage of it!”
The sofa and chairs show off orange-and-pink toile, and the ottoman wears a coordinating trellis fabric, all from Brunschwig & Fils. Pink pillows made of Manuel Canovas cotton top the white love seat.
The home’s carefree aesthetic is exemplified in the living room’s fabrics, an oh-so-Florida blend of vibrant colors and crisp whites.
The signature raspberry pink of the Weiss home is the springboard for a lively mix of antiques and flea-market finds in the dining room.
Bamboo trims a credenza and white-painted chair.
Cushions on kitchen stools from Williams Sonoma coordinate with pillows tossed on the banquette in the breakfast area.
A striking antique chandelier hangs above an iron-and-glass table from Lane Venture. The table fronts a curving banquette where boldly patterned fabric from Manuel Canovas covers the cushions.
Wrapped in a dreamy cerulean paint, this guest bedroom amps up the classic blue-and-white color scheme with a punch of color from the painting above.
Walls lined in wood paneling imbue the study with a masculine sensibility.
Pink flowers bathe the master bedroom in feminine delight. The ivory-painted Lewis Mittman four-poster sports linens from Matouk, while a geometric rug by Stark Carpet hints at garden trellises.
Cheerful pink-and-white checks by Clarence House are shirred around the vanity.
Robin wanted to incorporate comforting and soothing fabrics into the master bedroom without the fuss of multiple patterns. The same Manuel Canovas botanical print was used for the draperies and for the sofa and armchair upholstery.
The master bath carries a colorful yet restful palette, echoing the master bedroom. An eye-catching chandelier from MacKenzie-Childs hangs above the oval tub for a touch of colorful character.
Quiet pink coats the guest bedroom walls with tranquility, echoing the home’s pastel exterior. The painted Summer Hill bed promotes relaxation with embroidered Yves Delorme linens and a bed cover by Matouk.
A path of large stepping stones leads from the house to the swimming pool.

The pretty pink pool house is open on two sides, inviting fresh breezes and enhancing the area’s tropical feel.

Would you like to have a pink Palm Beach vacation home of your very own?  I know I would, and there are several currently for sale, including 160 Seaview Avenue and 258 Pendleton Avenue... We'll continue to save our pennies and dream! :)

  4. I swoooooooned over this house when I got my issue of TH. My lottery dream house, for sure!

  6. Thought that I had died and gone to heaven when I saw this house. So glad you've posted the pics so I can pin them under "Dream Pink Home".

  7. I think in the Weiss home the proper term would be pretty in pink. I have never seen rooms full of pink that actually looked amazing. I wonder how she got her husband to agree to allow so much pink. All the pictures were amazing.


Thank you for your lovely comments. They absolutely make my day!
