For this Rent the Look, we're taking you for lunch at the Raleigh Hotel so we can chat about a Classic Miami theme and Floridian chic looks.
To start, the Art Deco building itself is beautiful (by L. Murray Dixon 1940). It has terrazzo floors and that mid-century walnut wood throughout its interior that warms your heart. The Pool is magical on so many levels: it's curvy with a black trim and surrounded by lush greenery and stripes. It's the perfect backdrop for aquatic swimmers and mermaids (Esther Williams filmed a few scenes at this pool) and in 1947, Life Magazine called it "The most beautiful pool in America" I think it still is. How can you not feel amazing being in a place like this? it's whimsical and dreamy, and unpretentious. If you're looking for a Floridian themed event, the Raleigh Hotel is a great place to draw inspiration from.
Our Hunter Green Lounge Chairs paired with graphic black and white stripes are a perfect way to bring this look to your event. The Miami aqua pillows add a pop of color while subliminally represent the color of the pool :) and of course, the addition of green tropical plants is a must.
The "R" at the top of the building stands for Ronen Rent...kidding.
