Inspired By The Sea

My head is still on vacation time… as I upload all our photos, I can’t help but to linger on the ones of the actual hotel itself.  This shot, from the O’Brien Lighting Company’s website, features the cool coral fixtures, seen all around the Spa at the Palm Beach Four Seasons.  The whole hotel recently had a major design overhaul by Gluckstein Design.  New to this Canadian based design firm, I took a peak at their site, and just like the hotel’s new decor, there was a lot to love.  Below are some images from a Gluckstein designed Palm Beach Penthouse, right on the water…I even spy a Paul Beliveau painting! (Funny how that happens, right?)

  18. I love the artwork in the second photo. If my eyes don't deceive me, they're enlarged book spines? (And if I am wrong, I really need new glasses.)

  30. So gorgeous! I've followed Brian Gluckstein's work for years in Canada – he's by far one of my favourite designers! His rooms are always so refined and classic and if anyone knows how to work a neutral decor scheme that's not at all boring, it's him! 🙂

  36. Looks like you've got a dose of those beautiful sights, I myself would have a hangover from a beautiful hotel to stay like that. Their modern, simple and screaming for elegance in every furnitures. Perfect.
