feminine flair

Since fuchsia is one of the signature colors of the impending Valentine’s holiday, we thought there was no better time to begin showcasing a recently completed project which features doses of this color throughout the interior.  Located just off of Scenic Highway 30A at The Retreat, Paige and Bess designed this home which overlooks a dune lake and the Gulf beyond, to have an unexpected and sophisticated twist on ‘beachy.’

The master bedroom [pictured above] is warm and inviting with its oversized chenille upholstered bed and serene neutral color palette.  You’ll notice bits of fuchsia on the bed, in the artwork and in the drapery trim.  The deep reading chairs feature a beautiful curved arm that plays well off of the bases of the bedside lamps.  Often pink can come across as too girly, but this space is rich and sophisticated.


It was time to get a little more playful when it came to the daughter’s space. Her bathroom is full of ultra femme crystal accents that are fit for a princess.  We love the look of  horizontal wood planking , especially with a quarter inch reveal between boards.  We added a pink stripe to the white painted room to create a room any little girl would love!


The adjoining bedroom is equally as fun!  The custom-made boxed euros have punches of pink, fuchsia, orange and even a tad bit of neon yellow. The occupant of this room is well on her way to becoming an art aficionado with a  budding collection starting on the ledge behind her tufted upholstered headboard.  The Thomas Paul Bird Cage pillow was the perfect accent to pull it all together.

Stay tuned-we have many more elements of this home to share with you in the near future…

  1. I adore punches of pink and have used pink in my own home. I understand though that not everyone can do pink. I think you’re exactly right – sophisticated pink is a bit more of a challenge. The first room is an awesome example of pink grown-up style…I LOVE IT!


  2. who is the designer for the brightly colored Euro pillow in the 3rd picture? Not the Thomas Paul… would love some of that for my daughter’s big girl room… makes me happy!
