ention Palm Beach and what comes to mind? Mediterranean-style mansions, five-star dining and Worth Avenue, where distinctive shops and galleries dazzle the eye with stunning jewelry, couture fashions, priceless art and rare antiques. On this famous avenue, one would expect to find works by such prominent glass artists as Dale Chihuly, Paul and Dante Marioni, and Lino Tagliapietra, as well as paintings and sculptures by others of note.

And, indeed, one does — in the Worth Avenue apartment of Dale and Doug Anderson, who are patrons of the arts and former trustees of the Pilchuk Glass School near Seattle. The Andersons enlisted architect John Colamarino to merge two apartments into one, transforming the space into a gallery-like setting for their magnificent art and classic, modern furniture.

On another avenue in Palm Beach, a couple found the house they were looking for while leisurely walking their dog through the neighborhood. Slightly modifying its Regency-style architecture, designer Daniel Clancy imbues the home with the genteel formality of the 19th century. The dining room graces our cover.

"New traditionalism" characterizes Darryl Carter's style — a look he defines as "an absolute mixed bag." It all comes together perfectly in a vacation retreat at Palm Beach Polo Club. Carter's inventive use of vintage pieces offers a fresh take on timeless design.

As colorful as a box of crayons describes a home designed by Marigil Walsh and Juli Milan. Their brushstrokes of tropical hues paint a striking interior that delights the senses with its happy hues. We hope this issue brightens your holiday spirit. From all of us at Florida Design, we wish you health, happiness and a peaceful New Year.
