Palms add a sense of warmth and life to a space, oversized pots are best!

  • A tropical cocktail should no doubt greet you when you enter this Miami oasis. Potted palms fan the room while symmetry is played out perfectly. With hints of colonial chic design, the vibe is sophisticated with a relaxed atmosphere. Kind of a ‘barefoot elegance’ style!

    Scene Vibe

    The tropical vibe of the Betsy with it’s colonial chic undertone is an oasis in Miami’s South Beach. A crisp and calming palette of soft oatmeal with wide striped fabric and potted palms confirm that you are on vacation!

    Paula’s Design Tips

    • Keep walls white or neutral for high contrast with dark rich wood furniture
    • Play with scale and use oversized potted palms; flanking furniture is a great detail
    • Plantation shutters layered with flowing white linen drapery is a beautiful touch with this design style

    Lifestyle > Tropical

    A tropical designed interior will most always include oversized potted palm trees in a carefree and natural like setting. Wood furniture is dark and rich against contrasting light walls and textured is used in pillows and rugs. Color is drawn in from natural sources; the ocean, sky, sun and greenery all add beautiful shades of blues and greens that we associate with this barefoot but elegant design style.
