Palm Beach Chic

Palm Beach interiors have long reflected the travels, penchants, and whimsies of the town’s worldly inhabitants. Today, residents of this tiny barrier island call upon world-class designers to create homes that are testaments to what can be achieved when inspired by the natural beauty of a unique locale and when imagination is one’s only limitation.   In Palm Beach Chic, Jennifer Ash Rudick leads the tour of newly restored Mediterranean Revival houses by Mizner, Fatio, and Volk, charming cottages, Moorish casbahs, and vintage condos. Lush photographs capture extraordinary gardens, verandas, lakeside pavilions, a rustic ranch, and simple pastel houses sheltered by dense thickets of Norfolk pines and age-old banyans. It is this eclectic mix of old and new, of Spanish and Caribbean, of contemporary design and sun-faded WASP thrift, that makes Palm Beach chic.

For most of my life I've wondered about the interiors of those incredible homes. Now I have been invited inside, and I can go back as many times as I like even in my pajamas. Most surprising is that the homes are so different from my expectations. Yes there are plenty of traditionally grand homes, but there are cute little apartments, a sprawling working ranch, a Moroccan fantasy and even an Airstream Trailer. This book doesn't just look great on your coffee table, it has substance. Lush, crisp, eye popping photography fills every page sometimes two pages at a time. The photography draws you in and the writer fills in the blanks with her local knowledge.

A view into the private world of the society inhabitants who call Palm Beach home. Beautiful photographs of the homes they live the well tended lives in. A great book for anyone who loves the good life.

This book is more than just a pretty coffee table book. There are pages and pages of stunning photos of home design and décor that are just beautiful to look at, and I see something new each time I flip through. Living in the Northeast, I can only dream of a home drenched in sunlight, with indoor and outdoor courtyards and infinity pools overlooking the water. This book allows me to dream of a Palm Beach Chic lifestyle from my downtown Boston apartment.

The photography in this book is simply amazing. You truly feel like you have been invited into these breathtaking homes. Most of us will never experience seeing them in person. These photographs and included text take us on quite a journey. Great for anyone interested in interior design.

Fabulous book. Very interesting.

Awesome book. So glad I ordered.

Gorgeous book. I put it on a coffee table and it has already sparked interest. It's something I'll keep pouring over.
