Palm Beach Style

Les Esembliers

I posted before on this Palm Beach home because I was fascinated by the ginger jars in front - four of them if you look closely. I'm sure they bring them in for hurricanes though! I do love this home. I am planning to redo my driveway at some point and love this with the pavers and grass in between, but I don't think this would fly with my HOA.

Here is the kitchen in this home. If I were going to redo my kitchen, this would be my inspiration. I love black and white! Black countertops, a black and white floor laid on the diagonal, and touches of blue and white Chinese porcelain.

Speaking of black and white, here is Beatrice at 3 months - 


I also see blue and white Chinese porcelain through the glass front cabinets. Wicker trays have become quite popular for styling islands. They can be used to corale accessories making them look more styled and intentional, and of course are wonderful for entertaining, as a breakfast tray, and the like. 

One of my favorites is this scalloped wicker tray - available in two sizes and on sale now -

Don't forget to spring forward and move your clocks ahead one hour tonight. When are we going to get rid of this outdated nonsensical ritual?



  1. Good morning, Beth. I love this style of driveway too, and contemplated it for my own driveway, but keeping the ground cover green might be an issue as they really watch your water consumption here in CA. Many Californians have turned their once green yards into low water use landscaping. That kitchen is absolutely stunning.

    1. No water restrictions where I live in Florida and my irrigation system uses reclaimed water.

    2. Check out IG Chris loves Julia…they did this with faux grass and it is stunning!

  2. That Beatrice is one lovely, kissy face. Can't help but fall in love. It's not just the's HER.

    The first and second photos are what I've loved forever. Timeless.

  3. That is a lovely driveway and timeless kitchen. Your pup is beyond adorable.
