In Austin last night there was a snow storm, its freezing & there is a layer of white ice all on the streets. This is so not my scene. I left NYC for the winter because I love the heat, I love a tropical vibe, every day of my life. Today, I'm all about booking a get away trip to the nearest tropical location & one of my best friends lives in Miami and has been dying for me to come visit. Hence, the Raleigh Hotel, one of the chicest hotels in my opinion. It's not only gorgeous & tropical but there is something nostalgic about it, the decor is a throw back to the Art Deco era. I love the pastel colors in the interiors in addition to the black and white contrast throughout.
If you like the whole vibe as much as I do, you can add a few pieces to your home and totally get the feeling.
You can put this black and white umbrella on your patio for a dose of fabulousness.
A palm leaf headboard will put a South Beach vibe into any room, perfect for a guest room.
