Legends and legacies make their mark on this issue of Florida Design. Golf Hall of Fame legend Raymond Floyd and wife Maria hit a hole in one with their golf cottage in Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens. Award-winning developer WCI Communities, Inc. built the community as well as the golf cottages, one of which the Floyds use for friends and family to enjoy well-appointed golf getaways. Matt Lauer, Sean Connery and Freddie Couples are planning a visit this year. Looking to Italianate architecture and Mizner details, WCI architect Marco Ruiz designed a Mediterranean exterior in keeping with the rest of the community. Inside, Scott Snyder outfitted the cottage with plump, inviting furniture to create a “kick-your-feet-up” kind of elegance.

Preserving the legacy of one’s family ranks high on the list of two others we profile in this issue. Artist Alexandre Renoir, great-grandson of Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and interior designer and author Lady Henrietta Spencer-Churchill, cousin of Sir Winston Churchill, both pay tribute to their heritage with their own creative expressions. While Alexandre paints Impressionistic-style works that reflect the beauty and vibrancy of nature, Lady Spencer-Churchill penned her newest book, “Blenheim and the Churchill Family,” which recounts her family’s history residing in one of England’s finest examples of Baroque architecture.

On the topic of art and design, we went north to Palm Beach and covered some of the most noteworthy art and antique shows, including Palm Beach3, Palm Beach! America’s International Fine Art & Antique Fair, and the Palm Beach Jewelry & Antique Show. Together, this issue offers a review of everything for collectors of fine art and design.
