Well I'm back from my Miami Beach babymoon and NOT happy about it. It certainly does feel more Spring-like here in Connecticut, but I'll take 85 and sunny on South Beach any day over New England weather.
I just finished uploading my pictures of the trip to Instagram (follow me here to see them!) but I've pulled a few to share.
I dragged my husband into some of the swankier hotels to have a look-see.
We stopped for a drink (virgin pina colada, please) at the Kelly Wearstler-designed Tides Hotel...
And at the Shore Club where they use a killer lapis blue in the pool area.
The SLS Hotel had the most stunning seashell chandelier in their dining room.
I loved it paired with the black and white library wallpaper.
A shady grove area by the pool at the Delano.
The astroturf treatment on the stairs was awesome...and low maintenance!
We did end up checking out Vizcaya which was truly beautiful.
I took some illegal photos of the interior but just for paint colors, I swear!
The main halls were painted the perfect shade of barely-there shell pink...
And the plasterwork in one of the staircases was done in mint green and light taupe.
The palette is so fresh and modern for a house that is nearly a century old.
