Location can really drive a home’s style. A home in Minnesota can be beachy and gorgeous in aesthetic, but there is something so right about bohemian homes located in tropical places. Carley and Jonathan Summers have fully embraced their southern Florida lifestyle and have created a space with an eclectic mix of global finds and seaside pieces.
Carley, photographer and interior stylist, and her husband Jonathan, CT technologist and musician, initially set out to find a home with historic value. Their 1922 West Palm Beach, FL rental came with incredible character, natural light, a historical neighborhood, and a serene sunroom that sold Carley and Jonathan on the house. The beach town location is the perfect setting for Carley’s breezy, bohemian style. She has filled the home with rich textures, colors, and beautiful pieces that she has collected from across the world.
Carley and Jonathan have sentiment and stories behind almost every item in their home, which makes the space instantly feel more intimate. “My decorating goal is for people to come in and feel a spirit of peace and rest, even though there is so much going on,” Carley says. “There is always something to look at and there is usually a story with each piece. I am all about the layers. The process of the home is more about how I can layer textiles and bring a natural peace to the home by the design aesthetic.” Enjoy their stories in every beautiful room as you click through this tour. –Lauren
