Joe Davis at the JPD School of Design in Palm Beach concurs. In fact, he has written this trusty guide to determining a suitable exterior paint color for your home, based on your region. "When in Palm Beach you want to feel like you're in Palm Beach, riiiight?" Davis says in support of tropical pink homes. Yes, please! With hues ranging from Pepto to Salmon, let's take a virtual tour...

Back in June, I wrote about this 1949 Marion Sims Wyeth home for sale in Palm Beach. It was listed for $4.4M and sold for $2.35M, according to Zillow.
I wrote about this 1936 home on Pendleton Avenue in June as well. It was on the market for $1.89M which given the size is a bargain for Palm Beach, but according to Zillow the listing appears to have been pulled. Hmmm....
You can tour inside this incredible Bermuda-style home, owned by designer Robin Weiss and featured in Traditional home, here.

What are your thoughts on pink homes? We painted our South Florida home white, but I kind of wish we had painted it pink!
