Recently, I stumbled upon Beth Arrowood’s fabulous Miami Shores bungalow, as featured in The Wall Street Journal and Florida Design. Generally speaking, Miami décor tends to gravitate towards the ultra contemporary side, so I was tickled pink to find this little slice of Palm Beach Chic right here in Miami!
Beth Arrowood is a former interior designer, and now owner of NIBA Rug Collection. She and her husband, a structural engineer, spent more than three years renovating this 2,600 square-foot charmer, complete with the original pool from the 1960s.

Old Town Crossing.
rattan chairs in the dining room are decidedly casual and beachy with
dressed-up cushions in a turquoise-and-white trellis print. The white
elliptical-shaped chandelier from Heath and Company has linen shades edged with
green silk trim that meld well with the home’s interior palette. Wallpaper is “San Marco” by Quadrille.
for livability, the sunroom’s custom-designed Regina Suarez sofa is paired with
a 1950s mosaic-topped cocktail table from Vermillion. A green hued, two-tiered occasional
table from Noho Modern offsets the tropical foliage outside.

Chinese lacquered chest lend exotic flavor and are grounded by a bold striped
area rug custom designed by NIBA Rug Collections.
relaxed mood is conveyed in the guest room with an upholstered Chippendale-style
headboard and draperies from Osborne & Little. Inspired by a tropical
motif, the pattern is closely echoed in the delicately hand-painted bedside
white, letting the striped hallway get away with being a little playful. The
stool is by Pamela Lerner Antiques, the lamp is from C. Bell, and accessories
from NIBA Home. Via The Wall Street Journal.
furnishings that lend a beachy feel are cushioned in lively turquoise and white
stripes and serve to mimic the slats in the tabletop and decking.
