Why Palm Beach Is A Hot Spot For Interior Design

Once viewed as kitschy and a bit archaic, the Palm Beach aesthetic has been given a shot of adrenaline by big name designers like Jonathan Adler (a seasonal resident) and Celerie Kemble. Plus, business mogul Aerin Lauder just released her new book, Palm Beach, a nostalgic look at what makes this area’s style so unique.

This month marks the 3rd Annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach in the home of local antiques purveyor Lars Bolander, but you don’t have to live in an Addison Mizner villa to embrace the hallmarks of this enduring style. The preppy colors, palm prints, rattan and coral (the color and the resin version, please) are popping up everywhere.
