Made in FLA: Resort at Home
Textiles inspired by the Treasure Coast bring the shore home
When Kimberly Perron traded in her engineering career for interior design, the founder of Resort at Home quickly learned she had to walk a fine line to capture the essence of the Sunshine State through decor. “You want beachy, not Hawaiian hotel room,” says Perron. “But it was difficult to find a variety of sophisticated patterns.” So, when she stumbled across a new technology that let her both create designs and print them onto fabric, Perron saw her solution.
“I picked three cities with the most personality in my local area—Vero Beach, Stuart and Palm Beach—and from there made distinct collections based on each,” she explains. Palm Beach’s bright, juicy hues mirror the electricity of Worth Avenue, and Vero brings a soft yet luxe blue-and- green color palette, while Stuart’s sunset scheme reflects its vibrant, sporty aesthetic. “I spent a lot of time in the cities taking everything in to guarantee the fabrics stayed true to the place,” says Perron.
Next up: a collaboration with Vero Beach’s David Francis Furniture and fall collections that will give customers the chance to bring an air of Miami Beach, Naples and Islamorada into their homes. resortathome.com
