A Weekend in Palm Beach

I’m always on the go and love visiting Palm Beach a few times a year.  I love everything about it – Sun, Glamour, fabulous Architecture, of course beautiful turquoise water and  Palm Trees!

This year Eau Palm Beach Hotel opened with a redo by Jonathan Adler – who perfectly captured that sense of whimsy and glamour.  The re-imagined interiors have that very chic but playful feeling he does so effortlessly.

Lilly Pulitzer and Daughters Cami Weinstein

Lilly Pulitzer and her daughters.

One can’t help but get sucked into the Lilly Pulizter Palm Beach “look”  I have learned long ago that although I adore the look when I am there – when I get a piece home I realize that it will sadly hang in my closet.  But the clothes are fun and fanciful for that brief moment! And I do mean brief!

A true treasure trove.  Speaking of treasure troves -Be sure to visit D. Brett Benson for beautiful vintage jewelry – Kevin and Brett are so knowledgeable and charming – If you don’t get the chance to get down to their charming shop you can visit them at the upcoming Pier Show in NY.

Bedroom Makeover

Your bedroom should reflect your personal style while remaining the perfect place to rest, relax, and rejuvenate.  If your bedroom has lost some of it’s luster, treat yourself to a bedroom makeover!  Introduce a beautiful new bed and luxurious linens to your room to inspire your personal sanctuary.

Regal Whimsical

The Bed:  Horchow’s Fresno Bed beckons you to lay down and sleep.  The cushioned headboard is slightly curved, which gives it a winged appearance; I love the deep-button tufting detail!

Cami Weinstein Desgin BlogThe Linens:  SFerra’s Lace Duvet Covers would add the perfect amount of pretty whimsy to Horchow’s Fresno Bed!  The white linens will add to the bed’s design without taking all of the focus.

The Guest Bedroom

The Bed:  Give your guests a memorable stay!  William Sonoma’s Westport Bed would look fabulous in your guest room!

Shown here are only some of the upholstery options for William Sonoma’s Westport Bed.

As a designer I am always looking for a way to personalize an item for a client; the vast fabric and color options available for the Westport Bed’s upholstery is fantastic.

Cami Weinstein Desgin BlogThe Linens:  Made in Italy, SFerra‘s Egyptian cotton Silvio Bedding would perfectly play off of William Sonoma’s Westport Bed in “Brushed Canvas, Mist, Grade A” upholstery!

 Spring Ready

The Bed:  Get out of the winter doldrums and prep your bedroom for spring!  This is the perfect time to start thinking about spring home decor!  I love Gregorius Pineo’s Moragas Bed which is available in both Walnut and Mahogany!

5 Stylish Settees

How would you style these 5 stylish settees?  A settee is a long upholstered seat which seats more than one person, and can be placed in various settings.  From a business’ waiting room, to an elegant powder room, this is one piece of furniture you can definitely work into your latest interior design!

The Modern Interior

Chaddock Modern Settee Cami Weinstein

This Chaddock Living Room Waterford Sofa is a very modern update on the settee!  I love the architecture in this piece of furniture; it’s ideal for a room that needs a little bit of an edge.

 

 

Creative Alternative

Hickory  Chair Cami Weinstein

Give your design a fresh twist with this Farm Wing Settee from Hickory Chair!  I love the idea of creating a welcoming breakfast nook with this Farm Wing Settee as the bench.  Consider adding this settee to your mud room for a more structured feel!

 

 

Shapely Elegance

British Regency Cami Weinstein

This chocolate-stained Mahogany-wood settee from British Regency catches your eye with an undulating back rest and woven pattern!  Welcome your guests when they walk in the door by placing this in your lavish entryway.

A Touch of Romance

Swedish Gustavian 1st Dibs Cami Weinstein

First Dibs is one of my favorite online marketplaces for unique, antique furniture and collectables!  I am in love with this 18th century Swedish Gustavian Settee, which is made of pine.  This quaint collectable is perfect for a sunroom or study!

 

 

 

Lavish and Lavender

1940s CW

This plush and petite 1940’s settee from 1st Dibs is curvacious and welcoming!  Reupholstered with a beautiful lavender chevron chenille, this piece would be perfect in a living room or a library!

 

Buffets and Sideboards

Buffets and sideboards are versatile pieces which work in a variety of rooms, and are available in many styles!  From hosting an elegant soiree to being used as an in-office wet bar, the options for styling buffets and sideboards are limited only by your creativity!

Masculine Options

Artisan Grand Credenza Cami Weinstein

The Artisan Grand Credenza from Hickory Chair‘s 1911 Collection is masculine and stately.  Inspired by a mid-century chair piece, this is a prime example of a classic piece of furniture that will work in almost any design. We envision this credenza in a study or an office.

Caldera Credenza - Gregorius Pineo

Also ideal for an office or a posh workspace is this Caldera Credenza from Gregorius Pineo.  Made of Oak, and available in various finishes, I prefer this piece with the Interlace Carving panel option (shown), though the Santorini panel option is lovely as well.

Statement Pieces

WY Arley Mirrored Sideboard

This WY Arley Mirrored Sideboard is a prime example of a sideboard that refuses to be overlooked.  This piece features three shelves, each with three compartments; storage has never been so stylish!

Furniture by Jean de Merry

Hardly anything is as exquisite as the made-to-order furniture line from Jean de Merry.  Combining inspiration from the 1940’s with neo-classic design, this piece is functioning art.  I am most impressed by the heirloom finishing technique, which renders a naturally aged authenticity.
