When editor Christi Ashby contacted me about photographing a Palm Beach-inspired home for the July/August issue in Orange Appeal Magazine, I wasn’t prepared just how “Palm Beach” she was talking about. As I drove down Azalea Lane in the heart of Winter Park, I noticed a home with a front door painted the perfect shade of Palm Beach pink. I had no need to reference the house number at that point, I knew I was at the right place. As I entered the home, I was immediately transported into a world of vivid colors and patterns each one bolder than the last. Homeowner and designer Cathy Engleman infused her fond experiences of Palm Beach and made it the heart of her home, giving it it’s own unique taste of the iconic city right here in Winter Park, Florida. Below are some highlights from our shoot and a link to the full article as well. I hope you enjoy scrolling through this beautiful space and that it stirs up some inspiration for creativity in your home!

The formal dining room is boasts gorgeous French “Versailles Grand” wallpaper from Cole and Son and elegant crystal chandelier from Schonbek.
The family room was eclectic and whimsical complete with a bright pink peacock chair, turquoise ottoman countless coffee table books, and bamboo shades flanking a white brick fireplace for even more texture. A large canvas painting by local artist Ursula Schwartz showcases dancing flamingos and vivid drapes are by Manuel Canovas Paris.
The patio had it’s own stunning moment with an outdoor living room setup complete with a grand white twig chandelier handing over rattan furniture and deep blue and tomato red lamps and vases. Both the patio and pool areas did not disappoint or miss a beat with carrying on the Palm Beach vibe.
Just loving the pink umbrellas and elephant tables from Frontgate.
