Hotel to Home: Four Seasons Palm Beach

Today, I’m taking you on a virtual trip to the Four Seasons in Palm Beach, Florida to check out the gorgeous creamy suites and to then offer a recreation of them.

The living room in this suite is done in shades of white with hints of wood and gold. The view is spectacular, too, isn’t it? I would never close those lush curtains if I stayed here.

The bedroom is done in the same creamy palette, and the beachy artwork brings in the greenery from outside. The hints of wood and gold from the living room are brought into the bedroom through the desk and lamps.

Uptown: Progress Update – Living Room

Over the last two weeks it was really great to start, continue, and finish projects at my home. The before photos sort of scare me at this point but they weren’t so scary when I bought the place. Why is that? I think that when I bought the place, I realized that…

The location of my house is top-notch for my needs. It also has a lot of great natural light, amazing storage, and is plenty big. I really had to look past the dirt, the dark walls, and the mess, to see its potential. There is still work to be done but seeing the progress photos keeps me motivated to keep going. Yesterday I showed you the current state of the powder room and today I’m giving you a little tour of the living room.

Here is what the living room looks like now:


I haven’t fluffed the pillows or perfectly styled anything in these photos but they give you an idea of the transformation that this room has gone through.

The wall between the living room and dining room came down and the whole space got painted in Chantilly Lace. I still adore my MGBW sofa (remember my search?) and the gorgeous pillows that my mom made for me (talented, yes!). I unpacked some more boxes, brought up my vintage typewriter, and created a bit of a vignette with my vintage Alessi, old keys from around Europe, and Barbara Barry orb. The white-on-white art was created by my three nephews and I’ll soon be putting additional art on other walls.

Tomorrow I’ll share photos of my kitchen. If you want to read more about my reno, be sure to have a look at the posts in the Uptown series.
