As mentioned last week, each fall I have the opportunity to review new interior design books before the release date. My final book, Palm Beach Chic, arrived last week and I immediately carved out an afternoon to study every detail. The book was written by long time resident, Jennifer Ash Ruddick, who begins with her first impression of Palm Beach as seen through the eyes of a twelve year old - full of magic and wonder. The reader is then transported into present time with tours of 25 restored homes ranging from sprawling ranches to cozy cottages all done up Palm Beach style; each in its own unique way. I especially enjoyed the perfectly manicured lawns, mysterious gardens, and timeless interiors that all flow seamlessly together.
Palm Beach Chic is one to add your collection. I'm sure I'll be referring to it for years to come.
