There is a certain cachet about Palm Beach. It’s not just another preppy beach town. It’s the prep resort cradle of life. After all, “Lillys” were birthed here some 50 years ago and the island hasn’t slowed fostering fashion designers since.
Eighteen months ago, island decorator Carolyn Roy joined Connecticut based artist Elise Francesca to launch Francesca Joy Palm Beach, a collection of colorful hand-painted tote bags, chemises, pillows, and table linens. The spontaneous and colorful collection is inspired by Francesca’s fine art paintings and Roy’s interior design work. Their Palm Beach base certainly informs the lush, coastal finish in the colors and designs. Each piece is individually hand-painted and made in the U.S.A.
