I have been having such fun in my new role as a Guest Pinner for Lilly Pulitzer, where I have been busy pinning all things related to Palm Beach Chic Décor. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been culling through my favorite images, and I thought it might be fun to take a look at a few iconic moments in the world of Palm Beach Chic decor. When I think of Palm Beach Chic interior design, Meg Braff always comes to mind… How can you forget her swoonworthy West Palm pied-à-terre, featured in Coastal Living’s March 2011 issue? It is soooo good! I wanted to see more, so I went to her portfolio and have posted additional delicious images for you below. Let’s take a look inside!
Sunny yellows, a candy-striped Dash & Albert rug, and lots of white upholstery keep the living room cherry. Florida’s Intercoastal Waterway is reflected in the mirrored wall.
Streamlined furnishings such as the living room’s oversized Lucite coffee table, and deep squared-off Billy Baldwin sofas, and crisp white paint on either the floor or the walls in every room keep the high-octane color pallet of this home in check.
I love the vintage spun fiberglass patio table and chairs!
The boldly hued dining room chairs provide sharp contrast to the glossy white walls and floor.
Meg balanced citrusy orange with cool aqua in the den. “When using a strong color like orange, I add only one or two accent hues – it’s less overwhelming,” she said.
“In Florida, you have to really bring on the color; otherwise, things get washed out,” she said. “Something that looks fresh and pretty elsewhere can just die under the bright Florida light.”
I adore the Bamboo & Birds wallpaper by Bob Collins & Sons!
The love seat and palm-shaped bed boasters give this guest room vintage Palm Beach panache.
In the guest bedroom’s sitting area, sculptural white furnishings accent the bold aqua seating pieces and rug.
A graphic horizontal-stripe China Seas fabric makes a pair of otherwise plain twin beds look extra vivid.
“I have so many men in my family, I felt like I deserved a pink bedroom,” Meg said of the master suite.

Meg’s Palm Beach wardrobe is just as colorful as her decor. “My beach clothes are a lot different from my city clothes,” she says.
Meg mixed in white shell motif pieces, such as the shell-inspired ceiling fixture and oversize clamshell console – a local thrift store find – in the guest room sitting area. “Because it’s a vacation community, the pieces tend to be a little less serious and a little more whimsical than you might find elsewhere, which makes sense, ” she said.
Stay tuned for more iconic moments in Palm Beach Chic decor, and also for updates on all of the Island’s latest activities… We are knee-deep in Season here in sunny South Florida, and there is so much goodness to report!
