Stylish seating in the master bedroom is provided by a pair of white-leather Mies van der Rohe Barcelona chairs by Knoll. The chairs pop against curtains made of Palm House fabric by Brunschwig & Fils and a Linear dresser in cherrywood with a stainless-steel base from Room & Board. Near the window, a Parsons desk in white lacquer from West Elm is paired with a Ghost chair by Philippe Starck from Design Within Reach.

Palm House wallpaper by Brunschwig & Fils brings a fun tropical vibe to the master bedroom. The bed’s custom headboard is covered in a Sunbrella fabric, and the Linear cherrywood side table is from Room & Board. Sisal on the floor adds warmth and contributes to the bedroom’s Florida feel.

The dining area, which offers a view of the lush yard, features a custom cross-extension dining table painted in a blush pink. The Series 7 dining chairs are by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen, and the Nelson Saucer pendant lamp is by Herman Miller, all from Design Within Reach. The artwork, a turtle painted on reclaimed teak, is from Rod Mickley Interiors.

Taner used Chicago brick in the courtyard and added comfortable outdoor seating in the form of Maybe lounge chairs by Jardin de Ville.

The homeowners simplified the landscaping and opened up the pool courtyard by removing a few palm trees that dominated the area.

Hinson's gray grass cloth with gold metallic backing lends intimacy to the living room, where splashes of chartreuse were added in the form of window treatments in a Schumacher linen, as well as armchairs and an ottoman in Bankers linen by Brunschwig & Fils. The sofa is by Baker, the vintage Asian coffee table with a black lacquer finish is from Pagoda Red in Chicago, and the lamps are from Rod Mickley Interiors; the brass sunburst above the mantel is by Jonathan Adler.

The sunny sitting room includes two vintage loveseats that had belonged to Taner's father, which were re-covered in a Summer Hill chartreuse linen; the modern Bertoia Diamond lounge chairs and Platner coffee table by Knoll are from Design Within Reach. A kilim rug, obtained at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, adds vibrant pattern to the space.

contemporary pantry kitchen blue table...

A metal table with a verdigris finish, a found piece from Decorative Arts, creates a stylish bar in a butler's pantry off the kitchen in designer Britt Taner's Vero Beach vacation home. The porcelain lamp is also from Decorative Arts, and the vintage mirror was discovered at an antiques show in Chicago.

contemporary white kitchen

In the airy kitchen, the cabinetry and cherrywood floors were painted white, maximizing the impact of the natural light. The kitchen was also refreshed with new Ann Sacks ceramic subway tile, Corian countertops in Cameo White and a Franke stainless-steel sink with a Dornbracht Elio faucet; the counter stools are from Janus et Cie in Chicago. The vintage French poster from Atlas Gallery, also in Chicago, adds a touch of whimsy.

contemporary white bathroom sinks

Taner retained the design of the original master bathroom but dressed it up with a Nolan Double sconce with a contemporary Art Deco aesthetic and new faucets, all from RH.

contemporary white terrace veranda sitting...

Two custom outdoor daybeds from Holland & Sherry in Chicago covered in C&C Milano terry cloth provide an ideal lounging spot with a view on the upper veranda. The house got a fresh coat of white paint, and its shutters were painted Benjamin Moore's Richmond Green.

Interior designer Britt Taner knew just how to refresh her family’s vacation home in the Windsor community of Vero Beach. After living in the house with her husband and two kids for nearly a decade, wanted to lighten and brighten the space. She began by lightening the dark cherry floors, painting some white and laying sea grass over others. Newly-painted white millwork brings in more light and helps showcase Taner’s dashes of pattern and tropical hues.

“Color makes me happy,” says Taner. “My grandmother was an interior designer, so I grew up with the wonderful colorful chintzes that she had.” As an homage to her grandmother, she incorporated Brunschwig & Fils wallpapers, like a lively palm tree print in the master bedroom. “It’s fun to lay in the bed surrounded by this Florida motif,” she muses.

The home’s mix of contemporary and vintage furnishings create an eclectic vibe, including the loveseats in the sitting room, that “were in my dad’s apartment when he met my mother,” says, Taner, who re-covered them in chartreuse linen. “I grew up with those loveseats, so it’s fun to see them in a new setting.”
