Shopping in Palm Beach


I think we should all take a moment and complain about how unusually cold it is. I'll start, I am FFFFF-Freezing!! It was 7 degrees yesterday. Why is Mother Nature treating me like my parents do, and favoring someone else?

Back to my retail stalking while I was in Palm Beach. Since my brain barely functions during normal weather, I'll just post more pretty pictures for inspiration and ideas.

I hope you guys are over brass, because I am not and I really don't want any competition.



Did you know that this existed? Now I am on the hunt, big time!!

I'm not apologizing for the blurry photo. Get over it.

Welcome to my holiday decor for next year. This year, it's at Mecox Gardens.

I need an octagonal planter. I want this one.



I love this tropical display. It reminds me of the planter
that Albertina's husband brought home.






Digging the peppermints in the ginger jar.



I loved this store. It was on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. 
I did not catch the name and since they were not nice to me, I have no guilt over it.



I am dying over this driftwood table. Every time I see driftwood, I think of Beth. She has told me in no uncertain terms that she will never warm up to driftwood. Of course that makes it my mission to convince her, otherwise. 



I definitely think that this would fit into a Chinoiserie Chic room. What do you think?



Could you ever have enough baskets?





This one is for my sponsor (aka husband) who makes this ridiculous lifestyle possible without question. A pineapple made out of golf clubs. Maybe you could donate yours, Honey?


And that, my friends, is the end of my visual tour. 

Now go ahead, complain about your weather....or anything else you want to get off your chest. 

Love ya!

The lucite seat and the navy table/desk are cool!

OMG you are s funny!! Love your next year's Christmas decor! And thanks for the link to my husband's planter. But I have to say those up there are beautiful! the size and shape are perfect. My husband's is like double the size...the scale just doesn't work for inside the house where he wants it. We have to live in Versailles for it to look like it belongs. I love Worth Ave. Such wonderful inspiration you have here. You are going to love FL!!

Don't you just hate snooty shop owners? About as much as single digit temps, right? How's that for a little complaining?!

sharon smith said...

No complaints here. At least for today! Very funny post that started my day off with a laugh. Beautiful, beautiful elements of style. Of all the things shown the golf club pineapple caught my eye. Who knew?

What amazing eye candy this morning! My favorite inspirations always come from visiting new stores and seeing what's on display - and how it's displayed. Gives me so many ideas to take back with me and build into my own decor. So much to love here and think about- thanks for the visual tour!

No complaints here, first day back to school!! :) I LOVE that driftwood, every time I see a big old rotted tree I try to figure out how I could get it home to diy one! :)

Very inspirational and fun photos. I am dying to go to Mecox Gardens. Life is too short to deal with snooty people. I went to drop stuff off at a consignment shop and the owner was so unwelcoming,so I just left. Can't believe this cold. Our hot tub pipes froze for the first time ever; never even thought that would happen. HATE this weather. The tropics sound wonderful this time of year! xo Nancy

Tiffany said...

My year is starting without any complaints. We'll see how long that lasts. Love all the eye candy in this post. Makes me want to whip out a credit card and go nuts-Ha! Maybe someone else's credit card;)

Eris @ The Pink House Reno said...

You had me laughing out loud throughout this entire post! Thank you so much for that :)

Patty Rumaker said...

It is freezing here and I am sick to death of it! This is Dallas Texas for goodness sake. It is not suppose to be this cold. I am not equipped for this weather. Okay, that's done. Thanks for letting me vent.
So funny, the store people weren't nice to you. I go to a place (3x) in 3 years here in Dallas and it is suppose to be one of the friendliest places in the US and no one says welcome as I come in the doors. It is the most unfriendly and unwelcoming place but I do love the stores and since no one speaks to me it makes for some quiet shopping / looking time. I just think it is odd to open up a retail store and then not want to speak to anyone who comes into your store. Oh, well, it's not my store.
I love gold, and I love the driftwood. It does look like a pretty amazing store. You must be looking forward to moving at this point - I hope you search is going very well.

In my opinion husband sponsors are a precious gift—and that comes from someone who was an in the womb feminist.

Snotty clerks are so lame. Plop down that black very high limit credit card and watch them have a transformative experience. Then say, "OH, I've changed my mind. I don't want any of this." And I walk out. Love that part. Can't wait until Hurricane Linda hits Florida. That's going to be fun to watch.

ps Our Arctic crush has passed through Kansas. After double digit minus wind chill, it may be 50 Sunday. Go figure.

Linda Pakravan said...

You are too funny! Don't like to generalize but snooty people in general make me ill.

House of Pemberley said...

I cannot wait for you to move there. Ill likely be the uninvited houseguest that won't leave. LOL.
Excited to share 2014 with you. Xoxo

Vel Criste said...

Hahaha!Your too funny Linda! I'm glad you see humor in every little ( and not so little) things! I'm not over brass by any chance, just 'resting' from it a bit for my winter decor! I am into blue & white though like crazy right now and I am still and will always love drift wood!

Chatfield Court said...

We have had temps in the negatives for 3 days and today it is 8 degrees, so no complaints here. Love that brass lamp...the burry photo makes it look more attractive. ;)

I want that pineapple lamp. No, I need that pineapple lamp.

I have heard Palm Beach has the most amazing resale shops on Earth. My niece is a fashionista and finds fabulous fashion & home decor items every time she travels there...you just made me more envious!!

Simply Modern Home said...

The blue lacquered desk is insane! LOVE it. Love everything, actually! Now back to complaining about the weather.... ;)

The Pink Pagoda said...

Wow. How did they get you home? Thanks for linking to my planter! And, I'm with Beth on the driftwood : )

Leslie said...

Wow Linda! What fun you must have had here! The blue and white pieces are GORGEOUS and I love the table and acrylic seat. So fun!

The enchanted home said...

What a stunning trip!!! Love it.....the blue and white always makes my heart pitter patter! Happy 2014:)

Sherry Calamia said...

it is freezing here too… Thought of Florida seems so warm and inviting. Except for those snooty people in the store, I would normally walk right out the doors but that store looks amazing I would have very, very slowly walked out the door. Love the blue and whites!

Samantha said...

Nice stuff. Love the baskets.

Carrie @ Cosy Carolina Interiors said...

Great shopping! I love that brass pineapple lamp and all the blue & white. It's freezing here too, but supposed to be "warm" this weekend (39 degrees).

stephanie at Stephanie Kraus Designs said...

Your making me miss my ole neck of the woods I lived a brief time in delray beach, fl. loved it there. and did shopping on worth -- before kids -- of course. snotty but beautiful things!!

Laurie from Laurie Jones Home said...

You crack me up!! I'll take one of those baskets please!!

Donna-s Lair said...

Love your blog. The large brass pineapple lamp appears to be made with an oriental round wood base and an eBay find. I have saved the item number if you want to view it. Just shoot me an email. You could have hubs drill a hole in top and bottom pieces.... and curse your first brass lamp project. Looks like a real match none the less.
