After more than 20 years as one of Palm Beach’s most renowned decorative painters, Scott Robertson shifted his focus and has become a sought-after interior designer, as well. Trained as a fine artist, Scott has worked with many of the nation’s top designers to create some of this country’s most beautiful homes, and to restore some of Palm Beach’s most notable interiors; in essence a training in the art of interior design working with the most notable talents of our time. Now, he brings his artist’s eye and seasoned perspective to his own clients’ homes, creating personalized interiors that are both beautiful and practical.
Scott’s training in the U.S. and Europe brings a cosmopolitan perspective to projects, along with an ability to work confidently in styles ranging from contemporary to classic.

It creates a more nuanced interesting room, and is truly the ultimate in recycling and respecting our environment.” His rooms are artistically balanced compositions of color, light, texture and style, often with a touch of humor.
