Designer Phoebe Howard, proprietor of the shops Mrs. Howard and Max & Company, decorated a stately Bermuda retreat that's a mix of polished and preppy, with island-inspired dashes and feminine flourishes. In this room, raffia upholstery gives the bed frames a neat and polished look. Phoebe started with an antique bamboo desk with pink trim. Inspired by Bermuda's pink-sand beaches, she stuck to this one color and varied its intensity. The bold red, magenta, and pink shades in the botanical prints play off the island's brilliant tropical vegetation.
