right, white rooms have been dominating the design scene for some time, but that doesn’t mean those spaces have to be boring.

When designer Andrew Howard went to work on a Palm Beach family’s escape, he gave the clients lots of the casual, easy-to-care-for style they craved–but mixed in plenty of surprises.

Howard started by adding white walls in the living room with plenty of texture via a tongue-and-groove ceiling and jute rug. In the dining room, colorful cushions on the vintage chairs and the Dash & Albert rug play up the blues in the Thomas Hager beach print. In the master bedroom, Howard offset white walls with a sky-inspired ceiling in Benjamin Moore’s Colony Green.

Elsewhere, Howard opted for grass-cloth wallpaper and vibrant blue trim in the family room; more grass-cloth and a sky-blue ceiling in the guest bedroom; and a salmon-hued print in a second bathroom. The result is a laidback home in which every space feels as unique as the people who inhabit it.

“When you’re designing a secondary residence,” he says, “it almost needs to read homier than your actual home, since you don’t spend as much time there and it can feel a little unfamiliar.”
