Palm Beach Chic

While at this time we are experiencing Indian Summer alternating with a few crisp, Autumn days and nights; soon here in the Midwest we will long for the tropical climes, the beaches, the warmth of cities like Palm Beach in Florida.  Palm Beach Chic by Jennifer Ash Rudick, recently released by The Vendome Press , is the perfect book to have in your library to browse through on evenings this winter or anytime!

The architectural styles of these  incredibly beautiful properties along with their gorgeous grounds range from a restored  Mediterranean Revival  by the renowned Palm Beach architects Addison Mizner, Maurice Fatio, and Marion Sims Wyeth, cottages nearly hidden in lush tropical foliage, an exotic Moorish casbah, postmodern villas,  a sprawling ranch, and Mid-century vintage condos. The collections, the furnishings and the museum quality works of art will make you swoon! 

Included are some of the most photographed properties in the world, such as the former estates of C.Z Guest and Lily Pulitzer,  also Josie Natori's home, Laura and Harry Slatkin's, art patron Beth Rudin DeWoody and more. Many have been renovated and some left in their pristine original architecture and decor. The superb photography by award winning Jessica Klewicki Glynn pulls one right into the luxe scenery.

Just a few of the interior designers, landscape designers and architects represented in this stunning book are David Easton,  Lillian Fernandez, David Kleinberg, Thierry Despot, Peter Marino, Calvin Tsao and Mario Nievera.

 Thank you to The Vendome Press for the use of images and the publicity copy.

You may purchase Palm Beach Chic at Amazon or your local bookseller!

I want my back yard area to look like so many of these pictures - how to choose? And how funny is that huge sheep? And how wonderful that teal garden gate? Almost every single time you recommend a book, I end up purchasing it (and am never sorry, either!) - this is another, if for no other reason, to give me decorating ideas. Thank you for always inspiring!!

These are some really great clicks. I would love to get a copy of this. Why don’t you also cover some NYC venues? I would love to see how you capture the life here in New York. Have you ever done photography here?
