Well, I am back from a rather peripatetic Florida excersion – with a whole lot of dashing about between Palm Beach, Miami, and Jupiter.
I met so many wonderful new people and I was pleased to touch base with many of my old friends and clients as well. I did manage to get some work done during my visit, and since I’ve been decorating for my Florida clients for quite some years, I’ve amassed a pretty grand list of go-to design resources there. This has become quite handy for filling in some missing pieces that I’ve had a hard time finding here in the big apple.
The fact is, my vocation and vacations are nearly always inextricably intertwined (quite indistinguishable at times). On this trip I had great fun spending a day with a super chic client in Jupiter, who’s magnificent house I’m decorating. We hit all the hot spots in Palm Beach, had a lovely lunch, and then headed over to antique row on South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach where we scooped up several sensational pieces! I can’t wait to get this project completed – the look I’m going for is total tropical glam. It’ll be a spectacular show-piece to publish.
Photographed on Via Parigi, one of Palm Beaches magical little vias off of Worth Avenue, I’m sporting a Tom Ford mango silk “Spencer” jacket, fuschia cotton/silk pants, abstract floral silk pocket square in pinks, pale pink mini check shirt with French cuffs, Ralph Lauren orange suede espadrilles, vintage Rolex, shell and coral cuff links, and my fragrance is Tom Ford Neroli Portofino.
