Home Tour: Beth Arrowood’s Miami Brights

Beth Arrowood is the founder of Miami-based NIBA rugs and her home is tropical treat of colourful decorating. Shall we take a look around? Come on in – the waters lovely! With walls painted in Caribbean Blue Water by Benjamin Moore you can’t help but feel like you have been whisked away on an exotic holiday when you see inside Beth’s home. Given her rug business it’s no surprise that Beth advises one to start with the rug and work up from there when decorating a space, but her space is testament to it being sound advice. I love how each room has it’s own unique feel yet the house as a whole flows with visual ease. This is helped by the core palette of turquoise hues that run throughout, both inside and out. Beth has added occasional yellow or green accents that break up the bold blue base tones. Great job! Anyone for a trip to Miami?!

    I can't get enough of those pictures! What a great color palette. As usual, wonderful pictures.

    That is a lot of colour for such a small house – but it works. It works big time. Simply add a little Mad Men fashion and you're set.

    Totally summer hues! I'm not sure I'd opt for something that colorful but I definitely is good looking at the photos and getting some inspiration (like the teal velvet couch with the neon yellow pillows- amazing!)

    This is Miami perfection! I love the fabric on the 2 chairs in the Living Room–wonder where it's from?

    The house itself appeals to me. I love the sofa with the yellow cushions and the painting behind it. Well, I love many items in that house and I'm swooning over the rug in the same photo, but this is not how I would decorate my home, it's very far from my personal style. One more thing, I love their collection of vases, I want them all!

    Miami is definitely a wonderfully bright place. The buildings, the water…ahhh. I cold use a beach day! I love the mixture of the blue and yellow, with a dash of pink.

    Will, Always heard and never agreed with the adage that “Blue & green should never be seen” This proves that they should be seen! I love it. And I just wanna plunge into that pool.

    Such a bright + happy home – I love all of the blues and greens mixed together to create such a relaxed / holiday mode vibe. I also love that blue sofa! Thank you Will for your lovely comments 🙂 xx
