Hola! Hope you enjoyed last week’s real weddings and advice as much as we enjoyed taking a little break in Mexico (and Ft Lauderdale, and California, and Estonia). It’s a new week, and we’re back to business.
I’ve lived in a few cities over the course of my life, but the cities where I’ve spent the most sustained amount of time are all in Florida. Tropical style, to me, is one of those I-know-it-in-my-bones situations. My rendering of what’s tropical–swirly, nutty wood; open weave furniture, with spaces for air to flow through; bold blasts of color–is more Art Basel Miami than thatchy, turquoise Key West. So to my mind, CB2‘s summer collection is one of the best places to capture a tropical look that is straightforwardly modern.
And if you feel like it, you can always stick a pink flamingo in your yard.
1 :: Acapulco Lounge Chair–Palm Springs via Miami.
2 :: Soneca Pendant Lamp–glows lime in the light.
3 :: Breaker Chair–drag this to the patio for a sunset card game.
4 :: Digital Center Print Pillow–the crochet is a fabulous illusion.
5 :: Swirl Sculptures–chunky and airy; a paradox.
6 :: Naxos Dinnerware–cool ripples on your table. Serve with snapper and vegetables fresh off the grill.
7 :: Boa Sorte Backgammon Set–in a rose-gilded case. Use with #3 and #13 for an impromptu evening outdoors.
9 :: Soundwave Plate–so good with white dishes.
10 :: Seismic Rug–where I come from, blue is a neutral.
11 :: Wrap Bench–raffia echoes the palms outside.
12 :: Parrot Pillow–you know we can’t resist a good bird.
13 :: Brite Double Old-Fashioned–water with cucumber slices would look great in this.
14: Go-Cart Bright Orange Desk–well, this isn’t boring.
Anna says: our roundups are intended to be both inspirational and aspirational. Some objects are cheap and accessible, while others are dreamier in both price and scope. Now that registries have been liberated from the tyranny of the scan gun and released into the ether of internet possibilities, you can combine 734 stores into one curated list. Not to mention that you might already own enough hand towels and soup spoons for a small hotel. We suggest you cherrypick the things that appeal to you, ignore the ones that don’t, and share them in equal measure with our already Pinterested style boards.
