Degen & Degen completes Pelican Grand Beach Resort’s $7M renovation

In Fort Lauderdale, Fla., the Pelican Grand Beach Resort, has completed its $7-million guestroom renovation. The eight-month transformation honored the existing property’s old Floridian charm while introducing modernized design and Boho-inspired elements.

Leading the charge was Seattle-based architecture and interior design firm Degen & Degen, which created a design inspired by Fort Lauderdale’s coastline.

The rooms use a tonal color palette of creams, whites and grey tones with splashes of bright Florida chroma to accentuate the sunrise and ocean views. Accessorized with coastal artwork using a variety of materials from frame prints and canvas to driftwood and nautical rope, each room also has spa-inspired fixtures, freestanding soaking tubs, walk-in showers and quartz countertops.
