Tropical Chic - House Beautiful

While I am grateful magazines are available online nothing beats the real thing. I remember seeing this AMAZING house on House Beautiful's website and liking it but when I saw it again in the magazine it jumped off the page at me! Designed by Meg Braff this Palm beach home embodies Tropical Chic and I love every bit of it. I always have difficulty differentiating between coastal and tropical if there even is a difference (see post here) but for some reason when I saw this space the first thing that came to mind was tropical chic. The colour scheme is categorically coastal but the overall feel is tropical. Some of my 
favourite elements in this home are the vintage chest and Jane Wilner linens in the guest room, chippendale dining chairs in the dining room and the Chinese fretwork on the staircase. What are your favourite elements and do you categorize this space as coastal or tropical?

So nice to uncover somebody by incorporating original thoughts on this subject. realy thanks for beginning this up. this web site is one area that is needed over the internet, somebody with a bit of originality. valuable work for bringing something totally new to the internet!
