Also upstairs is the Tropical Study by Palm Beach-based Leta Austin Foster, who turned the room into a jungle-inspired den featuring African and Asian-style accents including a teal China-Seas-custom Nairobi wallpaper. We particularly loved the Hawaiian mission open arm wooden chairs for their style, comfort, and decorative leaf pattern, which are available for sale at her Palm Beach boutique.
As we entered the second-floor jungle-themed guest bedroom, the first thing we noticed was the captivating chandelier with wrought iron spokes and draping crystal beads. Designed by Massachusetts-based Robin Gannon, the room has a playful vibe featuring a dramatic bed with a plaid tufted headboard that’s set against the window with red and white canopy curtain. The playfulness continues with an eye-popping “Batgirl” art piece that hangs above a wooden colonial desk with bright red drawers. The bathroom stood out with a white vintage mirror hanging above the clawfoot bathtub. French doors connect the bedroom to a private terrace overlooking the pool and the home’s lush gardens.
Our grand tour ended with designer Keith Baltimore’s impressive Guest Casita where he transformed the guest house into a sophisticated sanctuary with shades of peach, grey, and aqua throughout including the massage tables, rug, draperies, and wall coverings.
Other designers showcasing their work that are not to be missed include Brady Design, Sherrill Canet Interiors, Colette van den Thillart, Savage Interior Design, Branca, Inc., Kirchhoff & Associates and Betsy Wentz. Landscape Architect, Lopez Group, Inc. designed the home’s front gardens, and the rear patio and pool gardens were designed by Nievera Williams Design, Inc.
