My apologies for the delays since my last post!  We had a few technological glitches that needed to be solved; so here we are, back on track.

I wanted to share the exciting news of my latest project in West Palm Beach, FL.  Heidi Cole and I sold this very beautiful home 3 months ago through our brokerage The Corcoran Group Palm Beach. For me it was bringing two goals to fruition. Simultaneous to the closing on the new home, the owner hired me to design the interior spaces of this wonderful historic home in the coveted “South of Southern” area of West Palm Beach.  Additionally, I secured my Realtor Associate status with The Corcoran Group, which is the consistent leader in luxury and historic homes in the Palm Beach and the surrounding historic areas.  I’m so pleased to be affiliated with such an incredible company. It is through this culmination of efforts that I  have this project in process now,  and I wanted to share the first few images to give you the feel for the lifestyle this home will afford these very special clients.

The previous homeowner did a wonderful renovation that was a very different approach from most. They chose a more modern path. This house was built in 1930 and was previously owned by members of the Pulitzer family when those owners purchased it.  In addition to doing an impressive restoration, they chose 20th century modern classics to furnish it.  Most people don’t realize that designers such as Mies Van Der Rohe and Le Corbusier were from the 20’s and 30’s. It’s not as much of a stretch as you might think to opt in that direction. We all agreed–unanimously I might add–and the effect was stunning. When the new home owners decided on their course of action, they too chose 20th century classic modern. This is a first for me. most of my client’s in the past have been traditional or transitional in their approach.

We had a bit of a delay in the installation of this process as other construction issues move forward. The first image in the slide show is of the east living room where we are doing a complete replacement of the floor.  The floor will be installed, stained and painted to be an identical match to the other vintage floors in the home.  A shout out here to flooring expert extraordinaire Steve Bavone .  We are hoping to be back on line with our installation by early June so the owners will be able to enjoy this truly elegant home in time for next season. Currently my mover receiver in West Palm is helping me with deliveries and the guest house is crowded with antiques and other furnishings. This has been a fun process for me with many thanks due to long time friend and Palm Beach Realtor Heidi Cole.
