Three Year-Long Essentials for Palm Beachers
In Palm Beach, there’s no need to switch out tank tops for trench coats or bring in the outdoor furniture. Temperatures don’t fall far, leaves (or palm fronds) stay green and the sun always shows up. Check out my personal favorites for living in eternal summer.

This is a category which Home Goods (my happy place) covers quite competently, but for those who prefer to do their shopping online, I recommend Wayfair. Their inventory is extensive and arrives at your door in days.
Outdoor storage – Outdoor storage is a game-changer when it comes to keeping your space looking clean & clutter-free, not to mention preventing your outdoor items from premature wear and tear.

From built-in systems to portable speakers, the options are endless, making this a simple way to significantly spruce up your space.
