Palm Beach Chic in Miami

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. Images and captions below via Florida Design, unless otherwise noted.

The living room is a work of symmetry with two graceful settees inspired by designer Richard Himmel and custom crafted by Regina Suarez. Swathed in a plush velvet fabric by Kravet, they are complemented by a pair of antique bergères.
Artwork framed in a hand-painted panel from Gracie, Inc., provides an elegant backdrop for the clover-skirted ottoman from Southampton’s Old Town Crossing.
 Vintage 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.

Designed 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.
The guest room’s pair of ornate gilded mirrors from Thailand-Haveli and Visiona’s Chinese lacquered chest lend exotic flavor and are grounded by a bold striped area rug custom designed by NIBA Rug Collections.
A 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 table.
The walls and console table are painted 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.
Patio 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.
