Mediterranean gives way to British West Indies.
What architecture tends/changes do you see happening, if any?
The most common saying today is “Med is Dead”, meaning that Mediterranean is out and British West Indies/Key West is In.
The changes began about 2½-3 years ago. Now, if you see a new Mediterranean house under construction in the Palm Beach real estate market, you shake your head and say, “What were they thinking“.
British West Indies or soft contemporary is a coastal look, white or cream exterior with grey flat concrete tiles and floor-to-ceiling windows. The interior architecture is an open floorplan, all moldings are squared off, white/grey kitchens, a soft modern/contemporary/transitional. Gone, gone, and gone is the living room, replaced with an open kitchen-great room.
The master lady’s bath is white/cream, ditto her closet, while the men’s is a medium shade of brown or taupe.
Marble floors are replaced with a sandstone-honed look; no longer shiny, mostly white/cream. The yellow Saturnia is a thing of the past. There are no built-in TV units. Everything is attached to the wall to be replaced with something bigger. We always take our clients to see Old Palm new homes in Palm Beach Gardens because the models are so up-to-date.
