"I’m crushing on the new Lee Jofa Resort 365 collection of Lilly Pulitzer-inspired indoor/outdoor fabrics, trims and wallpaper. I’ve been waiting for this line to finally be released and am thrilled to have more patterns in the Lilly collection as well as now being able to purchase outdoor fabrics.

"The Lilly Pulitzer brand works perfectly in our coastal Florida location and I absolutely love using these fabrics and wallcoverings when doing a Palm Beach look. Now I can create the same look outdoors for those clients looking to create a tropical oasis on their lanai and outdoor spaces."

"I am totally crushing on Currey & Company’s innovative new Eduardo Wire Strand Chandeliers.  Currey designed four different styled fixtures constructed of thin wires, which wrap around and actually form the fixture. These pendants are designed with gold welds located where the wires meet, forming a glittery effect. They can be used in anything from an industrial design style to a sophisticated transitional space."

"I love to incorporate furnishings constructed of textures into my designs, which is why I love Palecek’s new Woodside Canopy Bed. The addition of raffia, lacquered grasscloth or abaca rope really makes a statement, adding that unexpected textural element into a room. Also, living here in coastal Florida, these types of pieces fit perfectly in a casual beachside cottage or a modern coastal home."

"I am crushing on David Francis rattan framed furniture in colored finishes. I’ve been doing a lot of Palm Beach style designs lately and the brightly finished frames adds an unexpected touch of color. David Francis has a large variety of colored finishes for indoor, so you can really get creative. The rattan frame style works well in our tropical locale and they have benches, chairs, etageres, chests, etc., all of which are customizable in a bold or neutral color finish."
