“Few people know [Palm Beach] better than Jennifer Ash Rudick.” —Town & Country
The allure of living in Palm Beach has continued unabated for more than a century, and no one is a greater authority on the island’s residences than Palm Beach native Jennifer Ash Rudick. Here, in The Palm Beach Collection, she has selected 50 of the most extraordinary homes—from restorations of iconic Mediterranean Revival mansions by legendary architects Addison Mizner, Marion Sims Wyeth, Maurice Fatio, and John Volk, to charming bungalows, sprawling ranches, ultra-modern villas, and chic apartments. All are exceptionally designed by a who’s who of the interior design world, with names including Peter Marino, the late Carleton Varney, Tom Scheerer, Mark D. Sikes, Mimi McMakin, Amanda Lindroth, and Frank de Biasi. The homes’ lush settings are as beautiful as the interiors, with the help of such superb landscape architects as Jorge Sánchez, Mario Nievera, and Fernando Wong. Rudick also includes newer Palm Beach homes by important architects including Jeffrey W. Smith, Thierry Despont, Fairfax & Sammons, Daniel Kahan, and Chris Stone and David Fox.
Illustrated with more than 750 photographs by Palm Beach-based Jessica Klewicki Glynn and Nick Mele, this two-volume set offers the most comprehensive survey of Palm Beach homes ever compiled.
