Known for her detailed and approachable spaces, Becky Nielsen has created a name for herself in the world of interiors and has been a personal favorite designer of mine for years. I am delighted to share an exclusive first look at a recent project of Nielsen’s in Palm Beach. As we soak up what remains of summer, this classically-appointed, sun-drenched home is sure to inspire.
When Becky Nielsen took on this project, nestled in the heart of Palm Beach, the first order of business was to create a scheme heavily inspired by the tropical colors of the surrounding Floridian landscape. Aquas, corals, pinks, mint greens, and pale blues took center stage when choosing fabrics that would recover many of the client’s antique pieces that previously lived in their pre-pandemic New York City apartment. The challenge—and joy—of this project was reimagining these traditional pieces in their new tropical environment.
In the family room, Nielsen re-upholstered sofas and armchairs in airy blues and traditional stripes, adding floral throw pillows with neutral tones to complement the pre-existing grasscloth wallpaper. The dining room presented an opportunity to create a jewel box for entertaining, using a custom aqua wallpaper from Gracie Studios.
The guest bedroom boasts a cherished heirloom of the client’s: her grandmother’s canopy bed. Becky draped the bed in a blue and white fabric to complement the wallpaper and dhurrie rug, then punctuated with just a touch of red to bring out the warm tones in the wood.
Some treasures like framed botanicals, coral, and blue and white ginger jars came from the client’s personal collections, while others were sourced by Nielsen and her team; representing the harmonious and collaborative design process the two shared while working together.
