Palm Azul

The view. Sunrises and sunsets are most definitely a big bonus at this hacienda. The sister to our beloved Azul, Palmazul (i.e. Blue Palm) is indeed just as cleverly designed with fun and families at heart. We are so proud of this project’s recent ASID award that we’re sharing the before & after transformation story. It’s going to inspire you to pack up your beach bag, jump in the car and head to 30A.


We’ve all seen them. The condo with matching rattan ensembles from the 70’s—nostalgic and quaint at best in small doses. Aside from the view, this girl was kind of a hot mess begging for a facelift. Enter the design wizards…🤓

The main challenge for this renovation was maximizing every inch of the 1,210 square feet of space into an uber-functional, dreamy and STYLISH vacation destination, on a budget!

Mission accomplished. The open floorplan combines the living/dining/kitchen area showcasing the bank of glass doors leading out to the ocean-view veranda. Living room furniture selections were chosen as moveable parts to support game night, movie night or extra over-night (sleeper sofa) guests. A side table at the landing provides another option for a card game or a “beach office” -if you must bring your laptop. Have a look.


The kitchen captivates your attention with an all-out-color mosaic backsplash paired with carbon fronted cabinets, reclaimed wood ceilings, open shelving and industrial lighting.


Tropical and fresh, the dark navy and bright green décor against the glossy white backdrop, departs from the expected sudsy blues and sandy creams most often seen at beach properties.

Over-scaled blue palm leaf wallpaper in dark navy, sets the stage as you walk in the door and draws you in to this happy place. Can you guess the connection to the name? Hint: PalmAzul…

The master suite and the upstairs guest bedroom and bath are appointed with beachy textures like rattans, sailcloth, caning, and burlap in equally saturated colors.


The most enchanting space is hidden behind sail-cloth curtains leading into a niche with custom stacked bunks featuring real porthole openings to the lower level. AHOY MATEY!

But the piece de resistance is just outside this relaxing beach home…coffee has never tasted so good! Perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to be there on a Monday…🌴

Many thanks to Amy and Jeff Herr for the beautiful photography.

Love life at Home 💙 Love life at the beach
