As winter beckons the beginning of South Florida’s cultural season, Florida Design takes time to revel in the richness of art and architecture, enjoy the cultural landscape and savor the art experience in its many forms.

An artful blend of contemporary and classic styles come together in a Mercer Island, Wash. home designed by Gary Potter. Neutral backgrounds in this grand interior set the stage for vivid accent colors that pop in the owners’ collection of Chihuly glass.

Designer Scott Snyder’s clients, John and Andrea Stark, are familiar with the fine art of living. Worldly influences shape their Palm Beach estate with 19th-century furnishings and objets d’art from the legendary Villa Fiorentina in St.-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France.

These gems and more color the pages within, where the arts take center stage as the new Carnival Center for the Performing Arts in Miami opens its doors for a grand inaugural season. Museums display their latest exhibitions in conjunction with Art Basel Miami Beach, Design Miami and Art Miami from the historic Art Deco District and across Biscayne Bay to the Miami Design District.

Florida Design travels from the Gold Coast north to the Treasure Coast to some of the most noteworthy art and antique shows, including the Palm Beach America’s International Fine Art & Antique Fair, Palm Beach Jewelry & Antique Show, palmbeach3 and the Palm Beach Fine Craft Show. Along the way, this issue offers a preview of everything for collectors of fine art and design.

Enjoy the season!
