Modern, Classic & Couture

In the midst of pulling together the soft finishes for a kitchen project; I thought I’d share a ‘go-to’ source with you.  Although a classicist at heart; its always in my nature to throw in a mix of modern to edge things up a bit.

A line that consistently puts a modern twist on tradition is Quadrille.  Certain you have seen their work published in every known shelter magazine; they never go unnoticed and always a classic. I hope this inspires you to put a little Quadrille in your go-to book too:

West Palm Beach

I love it here!  The sand in between my toes, the blue ocean screaming tranquility and the sun beaming down on my skin with a kiss.  What more could I ask for?  I don’t ever want to return home!
Aside from the glamour of the beach, I love the West Palm Beach decor.  Palm Beach is full of seashells, bright colors and a stanch white accent similar to what is shown in the photo below.  
I have been strolling the seaside and I can’t help but notice the beautiful homes that surround the area…simply glamorous, of course:
The West Palm Beach look is refreshing.  I could see adding in a little flair from one of my favorite fabric places as well – Quadrille Fabrics.  Their materials are amazing and add just the right “pop” to any modern transitional space:
I guess I will have to return home from the glitz and glam of West Palm Beach, but I sure love it here!
