Today, for purely selfish reasons, I am sharing this amazing pink Palm Beach mansion that was featured in Veranda magazine in February 2019. Why selfish? Because, I just adore pink and green as well as antique homes and my entire Nook Cottage is in this color palette. Also, it’s Friday and since I used to have a regular Friday post called Friday Pretty I feel justified in basically just posting these gorgeous rooms. And gushing… And hoping no one compares this amazing historic 1920’s Palm Beach water-front mansion with my tiny little 1920’s New England water-front cottage!
First and foremost, the credits:
Those ceilings are amazing, aren’t they?
I literally cannot swoon harder over these ceilings.
I love the simplicity of the window treatments. Circle top windows can be tricky and I am loving the simple French rods with plaid and gingham (looking, hard to tell) fabrics in the living room above and dining room below. They are dressy but not overwhelming. I also love that they aren’t mounted all the way to the moulding. I actually really dislike having too much real estate between the tops of the windows and the rods. Yes, I know, high and wide! But, sometimes, they are installed too high, to my eye, and the vertical line of the super long drapery ends up out of proportion. These are beautifully proportioned for the height and volume of the space.
The kitchen below was a bit of a surprise for me. It’s from Officine Gullo of Florence. On its own, it’s quite spectacular, but I’m missing the warmth of the home. Perhaps if the walls weren’t white but maybe a soft blue? The copper pieces warm up the space – possibly more copper could have been incorporated.
The image below of the loggia is what caught my eye on Pinterest while scrolling through. I have a subscription to Veranda, I have no idea why I missed this home when it was in print. Am wondering if I forgot to read the issue…
I’m now thinking of recovering my outdoor cushions with a lovely pale pink indoor/outdoor fabric. And pretending I’m looking up at yet another magnificent ceiling. In truth, of course, I don’t have a ceiling over my tiny back deck, but a girl can dream!
The lush grounds were done by Landscape Designer Mario Nievera of Nievera Williams Landscape Architecture.
There’s plenty more photos of this gorgeous pink Palm Beach mansion over at Veranda.
I’ve put together a shopping boutique inspired by the loggia in this beautiful home. (Disclaimer: this boutique includes affiliate links. When you purchase, a small commission is paid to me at no additional cost to you. This helps support this blog).
