NEW-FASHIONED PALM BEACH LUXURY
Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa celebrates a new era in its legacy of casual luxury that is miles away from mainstream. Eau Palm Beach has redefined the guest experience with new rooms that reflect the destination’s stylish yet elegant spirit. The new guest rooms connect the resort with the water that inspires it, through ocean-inspired color choices with pops of sun-like colors.
Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa has partnered with famed potter, designer and author Jonathan Adler to define a new guestroom experience reflective of the relaxed elegance of the new Palm Beach. A seasonal resident of Palm Beach, Adler’s design approach to the rooms was to establish a sense of place that showcases the areas personality, setting the tone for a vibrant and authentic Palm Beach destination experience.
THE NEW GUEST ROOM
As you step into your guestroom, you are met with a feeling of freshness—the immediate entry features white wallpaper with silver bamboo detailing and shades of blue and nickel/chrome elements that draw your eye into the room and out to the ocean.
Drapery with a valence over the sliding glass doors to the balcony are the deep navy of the sea, with crisp white borders and accents; channeling the look of a cabana. Color scheme is white with blues and teals, accented with yellow pops of color as an ode to the warm sunshine of Palm Beach.
SUITE LIVING AREAS
The suites will be the same color palettes as the guest rooms with sea-inspired accents and draperies. The large sofa will have strong, clean lines. The room will include a large round table that is versatile and able to be used as a desk, dining table or for cocktails. The room is perfect for entertaining, but still practical enough to be used as work space.
Cabinetry below the sink has been lacquered and updated with campaign-style hardware in a nickel finish. The mirrors above the sinks have the Queen Anne shape with a modern, flat finish and high shine lacquer in teal. The water closet area is a tiny jewel box, with fish scale wallpaper in deep blues, greens and silver accents, with a portrait of a yellow parakeet for a pop of gold.
Slim Aarons photography is in all rooms, as an ode to the fabulous-ness of Palm Beach and Eau Palm Beach’s position in the heritage of the area. Donald Robertson has created a beach scene for all rooms—multigenerational families and guests of all types—showcasing the inclusion and diversity available at Eau Palm Beach. Jenna Snyder-Phillips created a large scale water color of a sea horse for all the guest rooms—muted tones but ocean-centric. Leila Jeffries provided a print of a yellow parakeet for the water closet in a bright neon yellow that brings a pop of color.
