The Ultimate Home Office in Palm Beach

In the recent past, a home office was a place where one paid the bills, managed schedules, composed letters, and perhaps put in some time on a personal project. But with the rise of remote work, whether occasional or full-time, home offices have become an essential component of the modern home. Even those who put in the majority of their hours at an office find that sometimes work spills over into home life, despite the best-laid plans to keep these realms separate. That’s not always a bad thing — sometimes inspiration strikes when you least expect it. And when it does, you need a dedicated space for brainstorming. The kitchen table just won’t cut it.

While a home office requires many things — a desk, a chair, a certain amount of technology — the essential qualities are much less tangible. Tranquility, calm, and a setting that eliminates distractions are vital; any sense of chaos will render your home office unusable. The Palm Beach luxury condos for sale at 3550 South Ocean already provide a tranquil setting for focus and productivity. Your mood and powers of concentration are enhanced by the expansive ocean views, the airy, open design of the building, and the use of natural materials in the construction, such as limestone, travertine, white oak, and coral stone. And for those who do work full-time from home, the amenities at 3550 South Ocean are designed to encourage a healthy work/life balance. Who else can say they spend their lunch break swimming in a beachfront pool or working out in a sun-drenched fitness studio?

With the overall ambience of the home office setting already curated, all one needs to do is assemble the right pieces of furniture, technology, and artwork. For that, consider enlisting a little help. A handful of top-flight interior design companies in the area are well equipped to assist with design questions. Cabot House will assess your needs via an online quiz and use your answers to choose a personal interior designer to help. After an in-store consultation, the designer will order your custom furniture, arrange delivery, and set it all up. Gracie Street Interior Design, located in West Palm Beach, uses a similarly personalized approach, and aims to make each space as functional as it is aesthetically pleasing — a vital balance, especially for a home office. Elizabeth Fountain Interiors brings the experienced eye and creativity of master decorator and company founder Elizabeth Fountain to bear, while balancing her tastes with the needs and preferences of the client.

Aesthetics settled, function is paramount. Be sure to choose a desk chair that you’ll actually enjoy sitting in. A home office should invite one to burn the midnight oil, and nothing deters hard work like an uncomfortable chair. Herman Miller’s line of stately, ergonomic chairs have a reputation for high quality, and there are a wide range of chairs made by Steelcase that can fit nearly any design scheme.

Finally, consider organization and technology. Cut down on clutter by scanning and storing paperwork digitally, and be sure to back up important files on your computer — security only adds to the peaceful, serene atmosphere already abundant at 3550 South Ocean, book your private viewing today.

A Look at this Year’s Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival

We’re approaching the most festive time of year: a period of lively gatherings, laughing with friends, and filling up on only the best food and beverages. But this season can also be a hectic one, and that’s why the Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival, now in its 13th year, couldn’t come at a better moment. During the four-day event on December 12-15, food and wine lovers of all kinds will get the chance to relax at unique tastings and sit-down feasts hosted by the hottest local chefs and out-of-town guests, all steps from the South Palm Beach oceanfront condos currently for sale at 3550 South Ocean. Here are some highlights you won’t want to miss.

The event kicks off Thursday with some extremely tasteful dining experiences, including “Sustain” at PB Catch Seafood & Raw Bar. Ocean-loving diners will be treated to a five-course sit-down dinner with a focus on sustainable seafood. For those who prefer red meat and high-grade bourbon over lobster and wine, the “Beef N Bourbon” event hosted by Adam Richman will introduce diners to a special release by Michter’s before the public gets a taste.

Friday features multiple tastings and meals, including a “friendly” lunch with chefs Richard Blais, Ben Ford, and Sarah Grueneberg at Sean Brasel’s Meat Market before things truly kick off with an opening celebration later that night. At the “Chef Welcome Party” presented by Cheney Brothers, revelers will enjoy wine tastings, themed food stations, and decadent desserts while taking in the night air and live entertainment at the gorgeous Breakers Resort.

Saturday brings more food and fun. Kids join the culinary conversation at “Kids Kitchen,” where chef Maneet Chauhan will lead young cooking enthusiasts in a 90-minute class. Kids will look the part in their chef hats and aprons, while lucky parents get to try the sure-to-be-tasty results.

Additional events include a grill-out with ocean views hosted by Matthew Gale, a private wine tasting at Virginia Philip Wine Spirits & Academy, a “Porch BBQ” at Oceano Kitchen, and a poolside tasting at Four Seasons Resort. Night owls can keep the party going at the “Chef After Party” at Grato, where they can purchase drinks and snacks without a cover charge.

The event closes on Sunday, when food fanatics can start the day with an innovative and delicious brunch from chef Daniel Boulud or Coolinary Cafe before the gates open on the main event: Wine Spectator’s Grand Tasting at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. In addition to enjoying the drinks and plates by dozens of chefs and local restaurants, guests will witness the annual “Grand Chef Throwdown,” where, according to the website, three local chefs will compete for a $10,000 charity prize presented by Creekstone Farms. Guest judges Robert Irvine and Adam Richman are sure to keep the audience entertained and the chefs on their toes.

With so many tasty options, the Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival is one of the best ways to treat yourself this holiday season. All information can be found on the festival website, where you can also purchase tickets for individual events or choose the PBFWF Pick 4 or Bell & Evans Dining Series group package. No matter what you decide, it’s clear that culinary wonders await just outside your Palm Beach, Florida, condo. All you need to do is show up with a curious palate and a healthy appetite.

Sun-Soaked, Oceanside Bliss

The sun, in all its brilliance, is the primary aesthetic attraction we have on this planet. People gather to watch it rise and set — its light defines and delineates our days. Furthermore, the sun warms, it nourishes, it enriches, and its benefits go far beyond what we are able to see. Studies have shown that exposure to sunlight increases serotonin levels in the brain, which improves one’s mood. It’s no wonder we love to bask in its glow. Stress simply melts away when you are luxuriating by the pool, or on a beach — and there’s science backing up this feeling of relaxation.

It’s with sun-soaking in mind that we turn to the South Palm Beach oceanfront condos for sale at 3550 South Ocean — a building more akin to a high-end resort than a residential dwelling. All residences have floor-to-ceiling windows, ensuring that natural light floods the living spaces, and many condos feature spectacular, expansive views of the sparkling ocean, which is just steps from the building.

There’s a stunning sun deck on the coastal side of the building, as well as a large, inviting beachfront pool, where residents can relax with a glass of wine while listening to waves crashing on the shore, or take a cooling dip after working out in the state-of-the-art fitness center. Pools this picturesque — and this ideally located — are typically packed with locals and visitors alike, scrambling to lay claim to a few lounge chairs. But at 3550 South Ocean, the sun deck, the beachfront pool, and the beach just beyond it, are all private. You will never have to deal with crowds, which means that true relaxation awaits just steps from your front door. It might be the best staycation in existence.

In addition to the various areas to sunbathe and cool off, you’ll find private, on-site storage facilities for residents who own kayaks, paddle boards, surfboards, and the like. So, if you’re the kind of beach-goer who prefers to conquer the waves rather than just watch them rolling in, you’re covered here, too.

These South Palm Beach luxury condos bring the sun, and all its associated benefits and pleasures, to your doorstep. From the sun-flooded residences themselves to the staggering array of sun-welcoming amenities, 3550 South Ocean is truly a coastal haven that you’ll want to see for yourself.

Norton Museum of Art | 1450 South Dixie Highway

A couple falls in love. That couple falls in love with collecting art. Then they fall in love with Palm Beach. So, they did what anyone with a vast art collection would do: they opened a museum. The aforementioned couple, Ralph and Elizabeth Norton, began the museum in the 1940s, and since then the Norton has grown in size in scope. Over the past two decades, the museum has expanded several times. Most recently, it underwent a renovation that added new galleries to house its American, Chinese, European, and photographic art.

Four Arts Garden | 100 Four Arts Plaza

Take in all the flora Florida has to offer in the verdant splendor of the Four Arts Garden. The Society of the Four Arts—one of Palm Beach’s foremost cultural organizations—owns and operates the gardens, while a local garden club is responsible for day-to-day upkeep. But anyone can visit seven days a week and experience the Spanish-designed buildings, the tranquil fountains, and, of course, the lush plants.

International Polo Club | 3667 120th Avenue South, Wellington

In Palm Beach, polo is a long-running tradition that has kept up its popularity to this day. Here, you can find yourself sipping a mimosa as you watch a match almost every weekend during the winter.
