I was flipping through some old copies of Florida Design’s Palm Beach The Island, and I found this exquisite Palm Beach home. It overlooks Lake Worth and features some beautiful hand-painted panels from Stark Wallcoverings. The decorator, Valerie McGreevy Tatalovich, took her vivid interior palette from the surrounding water’s aqua, the green foliage, a nearby rose garden, the sand and sunset blush… grounding it all with classic black and the owner’s antiques.
“From the hand-painted Chinese panels on the foyer walls to the references of flowers, birds and butterflies in the carpets and draperies, I wanted to weave in the homeowners’ devotion to nature,” Tatalovich said.
I dream of owning a home in Palm Beach… Who doesn’t? If you were lucky enough to be amongst the .0001 percent with a second or third home on the island, would you decorate it formally like this exquisite home and like the Lauder’s Palm Beach mansion? Or would you go for a more whimsical “Palm Beach Chic” approach like this?
