THE MAN WITH the Midas touch, Donald J. Trump is known for mastering the art of the deal. But he’s also mastered the art of renovation, turning nuggets of opportunity into multimillion-dollar goldmines, such as The Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach. Restored to its original grandeur, the former estate of Marjorie Merriweather Post is one of Trump’s crowning achievements. In this issue, we offer a glimpse inside his luxurious private club.


Susan and Jim Keenan enlisted the design expertise of William R. Eubanks and Mitch Brown to remodeled their Regency-style home on Palm Beach’s north end. To give the home its formal structure, the design duo added molding and architectural elements. Then they expertly blended antiques and Asian pieces to instill the interior with a Grand Tour feel.


In Key Largo, a private retreat casts a magical spell with its exotic mystique. The owners, who bought the property knowing it would have to be gutted and rebuilt, turned to designer Martín Martinez to complete the interior design. Working closely with his clients, Martinez created an oasis in the Florida Keys that truly indulges the senses.
Farther up the road in Key Biscayne, designers Carola Hinojosa and Juan Poggi revamped the interior of their client’s home. Fulfilling the owner’s request for a chic yet inviting interior, the designers balanced modern-day furnishings with ethnic objects and contemporary art.
This issue also focuses on several “must-see” art exhibits:“Fashioning Art: Handbags by Judith Leiber” at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, “Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of Pharaohs” at the Museum of Art/Fort Lauderale, and Art Miami at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
